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.

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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2010
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.

On draft at Founders. The bartender said that this beer was the closest thing they could offer to those customers who are only familiar with macro lagers. It’s definitely light, watery, and thin compared to there other brews. The lady sitting next to me who said she usually drinks Miller Lite loved this beer. Not much to it, but nothing offensive. Mild hop aroma and flavors with a mild bitterness in the finish.

Tap @ Founders for RBSG’10 - grainy, grassy profile. Dry, corny with dry hops, crackery malts. dry finish with some astringency. Not bad.

A very solid session beer. Not to hoppy, but great tasting and well balanced. Perfect finish.

j12601 (7955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2010
On tap at Founders while in town for RBSG. Pours a clear yellow gold with a thin white head. Grainy, crisp wheat. Medium bodied and lightly sweet, a little too sweet for me. Lots of grain, very crisp. Finishes up clean and crisp.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2010
On tap at Founders. Poured clear pale golden with just about zero head. The aroma picked up grass and light vegetal notes over rather generic pale malts.. overall OK, but not enticing. The flavor found pale malts and a touch of honey at the core.. crisp earth and dry grassy bitterness surrounded.. crisp, dry finish. Light-bodied, dry, and a touch grainy on the palate.. OK feel.. refreshing.
