Solid. Tastes like an American lager, but with much more flavor and hop bite. Refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Had on tap at their place in Grand Rapids with Alex. Pours a golden yellow. An average beer that is overpriced.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 On tap @ Founders.A light golden straw color with quite a bit of carbonation.Aroma of grassy hops and maybe some yeast type esters,faint farmhouse funk,and some biscuty malt.Flavor is Saison like with a bit of fruit like maybe apple and a spice like cloves ,grain everything is very subtle,a very sessionable easy drinker,thin body,short kind of hoppy bready aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

Served on tap at Founders Brewing Company. Appearance is Old Gold with a micro white head. Nice simple pale ale with a yeasty flavor on top. Had this in celebration of the first Boilermaker victory of the season.
