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.

33 cl. bottle, bought in Fish & Beer, Copenhagen, 31.10.12. Quite easy drinkable pale ale. Nice flower and hops in the nose, less flower in the taste leaving a vague bitterness. Almost no foam. Nothing special, a bit disappointing to the price. Would work best for me on a hot summersday where I was more thirsty than up for beer tasting.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

So I had this NITRO! Which is to say guiness’d... I was half expecting Jim Gillette to leap out of the foam and go waaaaAAAAAaaaaaaaoooooooo and Michael Angelo Batio to cut my face off with a tasty lick from his 4 necked guitar, but what I got was Founders Ok pale ale and a bunch of nitrogen foam. If only this beer was half as tasty as MAB’s licks.... In all honesty, it reminds me of summer and makes me want to go to a beach but I hate beaches. So... Whatever black magic this beer has going on, it is powerful stuff.... It’s pretty good...

Pours a cloudy coppery yellow. Floral, citrus notes. Crisp mouthfeel. Nice balance of hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness. One of the best pale ales I’ve had in a long time.

Bottle. Clear golden color with short white head. Nice citrus aroma. Light-medium body and carbonation. Good citrus flavors and hoppy bitterness well balanced by malt sweetness. This is a solid, drinkable pale ale.
