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.

Tap at brewery. Cloudy amber color with small white head. Light aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is pleasent but not a lot of character. This was one of the non-distinct brews for Founders.

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.
