2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Founders Fest 2009. Pours golden clear with a fizzy white head. Pours just a like a typical macro beer. Not very appealing on the pour. Aroma is of wheat, malt, grass, and hops. Taste is minimally hoppy with only trace elements of hops. Biscuity malt backbone. There is also wheat and some spice. Mouthfeel is light and very carbonated. The first Founders beer I have disliked.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
So I was with BeerBaron617 at Founders Festival 2009 and he checked out this beer because he hadnít heard of it. He asked the guy at the beer tent what kind of beer it was and the guy was like "itís just kind of a typical ale"...little did he mention that this is the beer they give someone if they were to come into the Founders taproom and order a Budweiser. Not so cool. It was a pretty lame beer, not much flavor, not much aroma, not much of anything :(

Citrusy/fruity, sour-dough bread aroma. Goldenrod colored with white foam. Lightly sweet and med-light sour. Thin feel, medium bodied, short finish. Tastes of iced tea with lemon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewery. Pours a yellow good with little head and aromas of bread, grass and lemon. Flavor is very similar, but seems to fall a little short of the mark established by other offerings sampled.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Founders. Light gold color, with some foamy head. Aromas of grass, some pepper, and a touch of grain. Flavor is decent mix of bread, funk and hay. finish is what you might expect from this..doesnt linger too long either. Ok.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear light goden color. no head. smells crappy, though iím not sure if itís ager or ale. almost no flavor in this. itís literally the most drinkable, wateriest thing iíve ever tasted. even waterier than bud light. which, at 4.6%, makes it exceptionally well made.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Founders. Hazy orange body, tight buff head. Cerealy, grassy nose with light bitterness. Cerealy body with light tangy, biscuity malts and grassy, modest hops. This beer was brewed for people not willing to take a chance on their better beers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
for its intentions and purpose, i suppose this is not a bad beer...for Founders, its somewhat dissapointing however. the offering of the beer alone is dissapointing..grassy, grainy indistinct nose and flavor..blah
