Bottle at home. You should never eat slightly off egg fried rice on Thursday if you plan a mini beer session on Friday. Good starter beer after recovering from a funny tummy. Light floral with a nice bitter edge. Refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Orange/golden body, medium head. Aroma has some Cascade hops. Sweetish malty body with a medium thick mouthfeel. Finish has something appley and is a bit chalky. I can tell this is not very fresh anymore but since the label says it’s in prime drinking condition (Best By) for another two months I will still rate it.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, nitro, at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Deep golden yellow pour, kinda muted and soft flavor. A little bit hoppy, a little floral. Had the nitro head. Okay beer but nothing outstanding compared to their other main line.

355 ml, flaske, 5,4 % ABV, BB 13/02/15, købt i SuperBest på Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads på Østerbro, 5. februar 2015.
Ravfarvet, rolig og klar/filtreret APA med flot hvid 4 cm tyk skumkrone, der svinder til gardiner og overflade.
En fin Cascade humle i aromaen, blomster, citrus, let grapefrugt, lime. Senere en smule surhed i dybden.
Humlebitter smag med let sødme og medium bitterhed. Enkel og fin. God balance.
Eftersmagen er afbrudt, bitter og kort.
Vel karboneret på et medium niveau med en mellem fyldig krop. Olieret konsistens og dejlig tør mundfølelse.
Meget fin humlet Pale Ale, som kan købes i større antal.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma of malty biscuits. Very malty taste with none of the citrus that was promised but pleasant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is not particularly strong. Some lemon/citrus scent, grassy hops and malt sweetness but everything is muted. Light golden color with a huge white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Taste is hop bitterness, some of the citrus from the aroma and an earthy quality. Taste and palate are a little watery. Overall ok, nothing special. If I were recommending a founders beer to someone this would not be it. They make so many great beers; since they have set the bar so high I was expecting more.

Nice APA that has a good balance of hops and malts. This is what a true session IPA/PA should be, no need fo anything else.
