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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Founders Taproom, Grand Rapids, MI. 4.5%.
Cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head.
Earth and sweetish malt in the aroma.
Malt, mild hops and hints of bitterness in the flavour.
Very drinkable but also a bit boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewpub: Light golden hue with a fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of biscuity pale malt, mineral water, a hint of pear ester, dusty yeast and a touch of DMS. The taste is mild and grainy, a touch of sweet bread with a light handed noble hop finish with some fruity acidity in support. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing with a chalky finish. Outside of of the noticeable DMS component this is not a bad brew.
