2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from rbsg #5 poured a extremely small sized head of frothy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow white colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of breads hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light in color, super pale gold. It isn’t strong at all, nor does it try to be. This is better than the founders all day ipa., more sessionable too. IIR it is actually 4.4% alc.

Tap @ brewery. Apple juice in color. Very faint aroma. Light, slightly hoppy and grainy. Very easy going and small flavor. Good for beginners.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Founders last week. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a clear light golden color with a nice white head and a good bit of lacing. The nose is pretty plain with some very faint malt character. Nothing too complex or hop-forward. Flavor has very faint hops with some light grain. Crisp carbonation and a light body. Well-made and a good introductory beer, but pretty boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. As close as Founders will get to a lager, it reminded me of a dry hopped lager. Light yellow with no head, and a decent hop flavour. A faint hop aroma.Average mouthfeel. Nice summer beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub. Light gold pour, white head. Aroma of biscuits, fresh bread, some citrus hops are there too. Taste is light and crisp, some malt, slight hopiness. Palate is smooth, light, and easy drinking. I actually thought this was some sort of Americanized Helles Lager before logging this rating into RB. It was a nice summer offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden pour with a white head. The aroma is fresh and crackery. A little bit of soft earthy hoppiness along with a bit of light wheatiness. Fresh and lightly with a soft spiciness on the finish. Pretty solid simple brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Founders brewpub. Very pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is very light with grains, mild sweet malt and a hint of corn. Thin and light as expected with grains, corn, sweet malt and a hint of hops. Metallic on the finish, not my thing - this is the beer is for the macro drinkers that visit Founders.
