Pours a hazy rusty orange with a white head and aroma of malts and caramel. Taste is well balanced, nice hop and malt flavor throughout, as well as caramel notes with a dry finish. Drinkable, light, standard pale ale.

Draft pour at Stella’s GR. This is a classic pale ale from Founders -in many ways this was their session ale before all day came out. Really well balanced -light citrus notes with a substantial malt backbone. Easy drinking and quality

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light butterscotch, slightly hazy, white head. Light hop aroma. Starts smooth and blooms hoppy. Finish is same. Light-medium body, very dry finish. The hop character is somewhat unusual in good way, it has a nice dry herb character. Overall, nice pale ale, very drinkable, satisfies the hop craving without being over the top.

This is a nice beer, but the bitterness that should be refreshing but isn’t and just doesn’t fit in with the rest of the beer. Firstly you taste the maltbody, than the hop-bitterness starts.

Not my favorite pale ale. A little stale tasting. Light bitter ending. Not very fruity or citrus as advertised.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy medium amber color with a small head that dissipated quickly. Light herbal hops aroma with a hint of sweet, creamy malt. Creamy herbal hop flavor up front with a bit of citrus and malt. Medium bodied with a dry, bitter finish. Nothing earth shattering but not bad.
