3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a straw color with a fairly thin head. A lot of floral hop notes on the aroma, and also a good bit of malt. Flavors are fairly similar; a lot of floral and citrus notes, although the beer isn’t aggressively hoppy. Some sweet and bready malts. A little bit skunky on the finish. A so-so offering; Founders seems to do sweet beers much better than hoppy beers.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cascade hops , and quite a strong sweet malt influence on the nose. A very well balanced pale ale, with a stronger malt influence than many beers of tis style

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle into a tulip. Bottled 7/10/15 so way past peak freshness but heavily discounted as such.
A: Medium orange color with a tight finger of beige foam. Good retention and sheets of lace.
S: Fragrant pithy scent with a little pine.
T: Bitter pine taste. A little citrus on the finish but that’s all. Hardly any malt detected.
M: Medium heft with good crispness and carbonation. Slightly chewy finish.
O: Old bottle sure, but I don’t find much to recommend above many other available pale ales. OK but I wouldn’t seek it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden light-bodied ale, with a refreshing hoppy citrus aroma, and a hoppy flavour with a mild malt character. Semidry taste with medium bitterness. Not as full and tasty as I prefer pale ales to be, but on the other hand I am pretty sure this sample is far from fresh.
