COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle. This medium-bodied pale ale has a distinctive floral hop aroma and refreshing citrus flavor. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

A light hoppy aroma is clearly evident with some caramel malt. The pour is a clear golden with a very nice white head of long duration. The hoppishness comes throught nicely and is sublte with the background of caramel.

Bottle. Houston we have a gusher. A giant foam bomb. After the initial blast I poured what was left and waited a couple of minutes for it to finally settle in the glass. What was left was a cloudy peachy/orange with a bit of sediment floating around. Carmel malts with traces of butterscotch all give way to a gentle citrus hop finish. Unfortunatly it was all quite bland.

Picked this one up on a whim. (Love Founders Red Rye). Aroma was typical of a good pale. Maybe a little sweetness to it. The bottle I poured had a fairly thick, billowy white head. Not used to that. Head shrunk but did remain until I was done. Slightly cloudy light gold in appearance. Outstanding taste! Drank it from a lager glass and savored the aroma as I tipped to drink. Awesome Ale. Strongly flavored but not bitter - no wicked aftertaste. Founders calls this the "perfect lawn mowing beer" (I will take a Leinie’s Red for grass cuttin’). This is a beer I will buy for a treat.

I purchased this beer from the brewery in Grand Rapids. Great citrus taste. Poured an average head. Good Aroma. I also purchased a six pack from a party store in Roseville Michigan (160 miles from Grand Rapids). There was dust on the bottles. The Aroma was just as good as the fresh beer but the flavor lacked some. The head was huge from the old bottle. Old bottle: 7 4 6 3 13 3.3 fresh bottle 7 4 7 4 17 3.9

(Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a moderate white head and nice spideweb lacing. Aroma of fresh baked bread, toffee, nuts, spruce, citrus, and a hint of cocoa. Flavor of nuts and piney hops with a bitter finish.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2006
12oz bottle thanks to Argo0: Pours to a slightly hazy orange-amber colored body with a medium white head that lasts. The aroma is medium bitter grapefruit, though it’s not as assertive as say Alpha King in the hops department. There’s some lightly sweet apple, light malts, mild pine, and hints of caramel in the background. The taste is fresh light malts, citrus, grapefruit, flowery hop cones, I can definitely taste the high AA content without the beer being overly bitter. I seem to taste the dry-hopping in the finish here, with some very floral, bitter, fresh hops coming through at the very end. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, bitter and flavorful, yet very drinkable. Nice.

Cloudy orange. Lightish body. Slightly metallic. Sweet cake and bread dough in the malts. Somewhat drying. Nice and flowery hop aromas. Rather drinkable.

Lowe1983 (1385) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Pours an amber color with thick off-white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, pine, caramel, and floral hops. Favor is strong of the floral hops that give way to the citrus. Not quite as bitter as I was expecting from the nose. A little dissapointed in this one.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 29, 2006
Nose of pine, spruce, citrus, resin, and flowers. Pours a sparkling golden straw. The enormity of the tight, white frothy head goes beyond mere words, and is fully lasting with great lacing. The balanced flavor is toasty and bready. Moderate acidity in the middle leads to a spicy bitterness at the finish. The crisp light palate is soft and dry.
