Ok. Let’s be real. When you bring a person who doesn’t like craft beer to a craft brewery you need something to give them. Something easy drinking. Just one rung above the budweisers and the coors. This is that beer. Its a gateway beer. If people like bad stuff you have to make something a little bad to give them to sway them to your way of thinking and Bam this is perfect for that. I don’t really like it though... I’m just a glass-half-full kind of guy.

On tap at the Founders Cellar Raid on 1/29/16. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of cracker malt and floral English hops. Sweet malt flavor with crisp hops before a thin finish.

Very bitter, to the point that it mutes all other flavors. Looks like a light lager. Quite thin as well.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some slight vanilla into a hint fo orange, mainly herbal and grassy notes in there, touch of dough. Taste is a mix of dough, grass, some earth, yeast into a bit of biscuit and bread, some slight orange, finishing slightly dry, bitter.

Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks decent; a mostly transparent lighter gold with thin white lacing. Smells of mild hops and grain. Tastes like it smells, but hoppier. Very light grain and a bit of sweetness from the malt bill. Mouthfeel is medium light-bodied. Not bad, but underwhelming.
