3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light, light gold color, clear and sparkling. Really no head , just a little around the edge. Biscuity malt and grassy hops in the nose. Light in body, effervescent and medium finish. Citrusy flavor, lemon rind, a touch of sweetness, mostly dry. A palate cleanser.

Pale yellow body, thin head. No aroma. Easy drinker, nice grainy flavor that I like a lot in these beers. Keep it simple, dont screw anything up, thereís something to be said for that.

Yellow pour with a light head. Aroma is light toffee, toasted malt, some earthy mellow mopping. Mouthfeel is light and a bit fizzy. Flavor is lemon grass, some hay, nothing too exciting, but certainly no off tones.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at founders. Pours a clouded yellow color. Aroma is that you would find of a typical macro style beer. Taste is about the same. Donít get me wrong, this isnít a bad beer, and I bought a growler for my dad who quite enjoyed it. However compared to some of the other amazing beers at Founders. This one just doesnít quite keep up. I would recommend getting this one for someone who isnít a huge fan of most microbrews. Someone who is used to a bud light would rate this as a great start into the craft beer world.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled draft at the brewpub (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours acloudy yellow, champagnesque with small whitish head that dies to a film. Aromas are light fruity pear, and apple with a touch of champagne yeast. Bright and lively. Initial is light bodied, a bit fruity, crisp with a touch of dryness. Moves into mellow sweetness, very light, easy on the palate. A summer guzzler without much going on. Still, a decent summer offering.
