COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Founding Fathers Lager is a full-bodied American Lager with rich amber color. A combination of both two and six row barley, a blend of three classic American hops from the Pacific Northwest, and a touch of roasted carmel malt will make this the new American favorite.

Founding Fathers Lager is a medium-bodied, rather heavily carbonated beer. A mix of hop flavors is matched by a balancing amount of caramel malt. Weak aroma and flavor is followed by a short-lived but lightly tangy aftertaste.

(old notes) Single bottle form a friend’s fridge. Looks, smells, tastes like an American lager - nothing to talk about really. Clever marketing though.

I will admit that I drank this one straight from the bottle, so I really couldn’t give it an honest appearance rating, but since it is supposed to be amber colored I have it a 2. Amber beer looks much better than pee gold beer. Anyways... this beer tastes a lot like an amber. Lots of grains, some hints of caramel, a slight nuttiness, and biscuit make up the simple flavor profile. Goes down real smooth, and tastes pretty good. A solid session beer. Most importantly it supports a great cause. I like it.

Drank from a 12 oz. bottle. A very unassuming taste with a dark amber color. Not one of my favorites.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Reminds me of a bad knock off I Yuengling, but at least it supports a good cause. Rather flavorless and I'm not too fond of the appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not my type of beer, but pretty good for a lager. Smooth and easy going for a relaxing evening

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Completely nondescript in almost every way. Weak corn aroma, faint bitterness from hops, disappears quickly from nose and tongue. Compared to Bud/Coors/Miller Light, it?s not bad. But has no positive character to it at all.

Bottle from Chicken Chucks. Listed as being made in Latrobe. A clean crisp pale ale ish beer with smooth biscuit and caramel, light floral hops, quite easy and clean.

Decent beer better than a bud or coors. Needs more body very one dimensional in flavor tastes of corn a little more bitter than many lagers finish is a little harsh. Do like that 1/2 the profits support military. Would like less corn & more malt.

Found this beer on a vacation to Florida. Bought it simply because it said 50 percent of the proceeds go to Military families. I was quite happy with the drinkability of this lager. Again, I support those that support the military.
