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.

Funny, my bottle (identical in appearance) says "Latrobe, PA". I didn’t think this was a MN beer (Long Lake, MN? according to Ratebeer). It pours darker than I thought it would--that’s a good sign. But after that, this is a beer that’s all marketing/label and nothing in the beer. It’s just a plain ol’ lager. I can see how those who like simple beers wouldn’t mind it, but it’s just one of the gang. Bottle.

6/5/12. 12oz bottle. Clear copper pour with a decent khaki head that laces in random chunks. Light aroma of grains, caramel, and a touch of apple and metal. Plain flavor of grains and caramel with a bit of apple and metal again, with a bit of biscuit/cracker. EH.

jjuf1853 (1241) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2012
12 oz. bottle from six pack purchased at Publix. I didn’t know anything about this beer or brewery beforehand, but after I saw on the package that they donate 50% of the profits to military families I gladly bought one. Clear, copper amber color with a medium sized beige head that settles into a thin outer ring and inner island. Minimal lacing along the glass. Aroma has a mild roasted caramel malt sweetness to it. Overall flavor is decent, but not great with the tiniest bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty thin and light for a lager which makes me wonder how much lighter their light version is.

Aurelius (4229) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Clear, dark orange beer. Cheesy label. Sweet, light caramel/dark syrup aroma, with corn. Tangy, moderately astringent, not very sweet, not very hoppy. Bland, cheap flavored but not wicked. Medium to slightly light body. ABC Liquors, Kerry Forest Parkway.

PorterPounder (5591) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. Aroma has a light artificial fruit tinge to it, hint of metal. Flavor is quite bland, but not offensive. Some low grade caramel sweetness, some toasted notes, but not very prominent., finsihes with a nutty flourish. Decently thick mouthfeel. Much better than the Light. Looking forward to the Founding Fathers Premium I saw advertised on their website!

JK (4520) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2012
A standard yellow lager with some malt and minimal flavor. Not much going on. The palate is actually not bad, and it is drinkable enough. The rep said they donate 1/2 of their profits to military families, so I like that.

unclemattie (4217) - Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2012
12oz twist-off bottle. Amber color, looks like a Vienna Lager. No head. Aroma of sour mash, some straw, some corn. Tastes like bottom of the bin barley and corn adjuncts. Finishes with a taste of steamed vegetables and some citrus in the very end. I can’t believe I wasted $6.99 on this 6pk. I should know better. This is SHIT. (3339)

nick76 (4232) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2012
The aroma leaves something to be desired it’s not offensive but not yummy. It has adjunct malts and metallic notes and cheap hops. The appearance is deep gold with a small head. The taste is malty and very non dimensional and very much like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall not an undrinkable beer but I don’t want another one.

No real aroma. A decent orange color. A very boring beer. A little tiny crispness to it, but mostly this is flavored water.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Medium amber color, very clear, with a foamy, two-finger, off-white head. It doesn’t look bad in the glass. Similar in appearance to Sam Adams Boston Lager. Nose is wet cardboard, malt and skunky....not very appealing. Wet dough, corn, rice, bready malt with a metallic astringency. That is also not very appealing. Thin body. Drinkable on a hot day but not very enjoyable otherwise.
