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.

Pours a nice coppery amber with an average but decent white head. Aroma is typical of a lager, but has strength and depth that I don’t get from most pale lagers, having strong fruity notes as well as the expected lager aroma. Flavor is malty and somewhat fruity, more rounded than most lagers and quite pleasing. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth and firm with a good amount of fizz. Definitely worth seeking.

I overrated this simply because half of the profits go to help familys of veterans. Pretty standard amber lager. Nothing special but worthy cause. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. Clear copper with a small disc of bubbles. Nose is caramel and toast, with just a hint of citrus and dry grass. Flavor is the same blend, with more of the dry grass and citrus for a crisp finish. Light-medium body is a touch to the sweet side, but still fairly sessionable. Almost like a Vienna; this is definitely not a pale lager.

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

Coppery orange, which is kind of surprising. I suppose I was expecting something yellow. Smells like caramel with a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is caramel, cinnamon, with some grassy hops in the finish. Better than I expected.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Four Firkins in St Louis Park, MN. Pours a clear amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissipates to a film top and white ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, a hint of floral hops and bread dough. taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of light caramel malt, some mild toffee and floral hops. Finish has a low bitterness, light caramel malt and lager yeast (bread dough) flavors. Finish is very quick, very little bitterness and then a soft bread aftertaste. An average amber lager overall.

Got this one because it was cheap. Pours a brownish amber color with a light white head. Aroma is malty. taste is malty sweet with a light hop flavor. Well-balanced. Very much like an Octoberfest Lager. If I were bankrupt, I might buy a case of this (provided I scraped together enough money). Otherwise I might have one at a bar if it was the only non-massed produced corn beer.

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.

Bottle. Actuallly, not a bad lager. Has a nice clear amberish orange color. Taste has a nice malty taste with slight hints of candy corn. Aroma is very weak with an almost metallic tinge to it.

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
