2013 bottle to a pint glass. Pours a clear copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma is a faintly sweet and bready. Taste is watery with a little sweet malt and even less of a bitterness at the end. Medium mouthfeel. Mostly bland and inoffensive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml Bottle: best before 30 Apr 2013, opened on 12 Apr 2013 and poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard.
Looked good, light amber going onto copper in body colour, on top a full head of white crowned it off nicely.
I thought this had a malt bias throughout: something I like. The nose had a mild caramel hint within the aroma and that followed along within the mouth flavours. Hops are around giving the beer a balanced feel but this is a semi-sweet brew which fits my taste profile very nicely.

Musty, sweet aroma, brown sugar. The appearance is red/gold, off-white head. The flavor is apple, fruit, cardboard. Weird. The finish is Engligh hops, sour. Ok, not great. Strange, to be honest.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper, malt with some hops. Light body with a fair hop presence attempt. A little watery. Taste is there but really a shadow of what i would want/expect. Nonetheless, maybe a really drinkable macrobrew representation of an esb isnít bad. This is really drinkable and not bad tasting at all except a little metallic.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle The ale poured clear amber with a white head with some lacing. The label said this was a pale ale. The ale was thin and needed more body. There was bready taste to the ale and clearly not a pale ale in US standards. The aroma was of caramel and toasted malts. The caramel malts dominate the hops. A very drinkale ale with lively carbonation. The finish had a light citrus with dry lingering caramel malt finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Clear copper colour with a decent head that disappears quite quickly. Aroma is full of malt. Plenty of malt flavour with some citrus peel and a little spice, though overall not too heavy. Moderate bitterness with a fairly brief finish. Light to moderate carbonation. Good, though not exceptional.

There is nothing more refreshing than a nice cold one after a long day at the office. Founders Ale is very refreshing, not too bitter just right love this beer. I clean out the shelve every time I go to the store.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper with an off white creamy head that fades quickly. A distinctly dried apricot bouquet that acts as a spoiler for what will, ultimately, stimulate the palate. Lovely tangerine and dried apricot that drops abruptly to expose a mild tartness at the beerís finish. Extremely drinkable beer.
