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.

The bottle date puts this one at about a month old. The beer pours a hazy golden with a big off white head and some lace. The aroma is toasty and malty with some biscuit and grainy malt character. There is a citrus hop character to the aroma as well but it’s pretty mild behind the malty profile. The flavor is sort of the opposite, the beer is plenty bitter with a good dose of grassy and citrusy hops, the beer maintains it’s dryness throughout but a nice background of toasty malt is ever-present here. A completely different take on the American Style Pale Ale, and it’s mildness and subtlety comes as a bit of a surprise from Founders, a brewery that I consistently expect bolder beers from.... I think it’s really awesome that they decided to go this route with this one.

This is a great pale ale. I love Cascade hops and this just tastes and smells wonderful. Wish I could get this here in Colorado.

Slightly unclear light golden with a fluffy white head. Flavour has cookies and toast topped with some citrusy and floral hoppiness. Light sweetness and bitterness. Not as good as I would expect from Founders, but a fully drinkable beer.

rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle pours out clear yellow with medium white head. Aroma is mostly citrusy hop and a dusty bitterness. Flavor is dry with a light citrus hoppiness that leads to a rather hard bitterness and virtually no sweetness. The carbonation fades quickly. Ok with food but not a very good sipping/kicking back beer.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2011
Bottle@ Haket, Göteborg. Pale yellow with lots of yeatflakes. Head is small white and foamy. Aroma and flavor brings a grassy and little malty touch. Some "organic" bitternes. Maybe some hops but there is much more to ask from this beer I think.

ben4321 (5355) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle at the Foodery II, 4/9/11

Aroma: The nose is malty, some toast/bread, and a light floral hop presence
Appearance: The pour is a hazy golden-yellow color with a white head
Flavor: The taste is fairly dull, toast and bread, minimal hop presence
Palate: The body of this one is alright, but there was just something missing overall
Overall Impression: Overall, I just didn’t love this one. The hops just didn’t really come through in the way I would have liked for them to. This beer wasn’t particularly exciting, it just felt like it was missing the hops that I really wanted to be there. Anyway, pretty disappointing considering how good Founders beers usually are, but not terrible overall. Would like to try this one again at some point to see if this was just an older bottle.

ekstedt (6313) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle (35 cl) from Barley Wine, Copenhagen, Denmark. Shady golden, medium white head. Breay malt aroma, some fruity and citric hops. Almost medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness. Very much like SNPA but the latter is better and more flavourful.
