Founders Crumudgeon Old Ale has a thin, cream-colored head, a clear, brilliant, apricot-orange appearance, some bubble streams, no sediment, and very sparse, spider web lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, sweet, malt, vanilla/oak, and light rum. Taste is all that, with some good, balancing bitterness and apparent wood. Mouthfeel is rather light and watery, and Founders Curmudgeon Old Ale finishes alcohilic, sweet, and contemplative. The worst one could say about this beer is that it is delicious.
