Perhaps not as fresh as it needs to be. Pours deep gold. Strangely, almost no carbonation. Aroma is musty and piney, not as citrusy as expected. Chewy mouthfeel. Taste is mostly classic pale, little roastier than expected. Solid pale ale, not quite what I expected, but a solid beer.

We have been lucky here in CT. 2 months ago, we could not bring in any Founders into our Package store. But now, we can.
This was a typical Founder's beer. Everything was crisp , neat
and in place. ( if you can describe a beer that way )
The actual pour was clean and clear. I was almost expecting something more along the liens of their Porters/Stouts.
The aroma was really so pleasant. It wasnt overloaded with hops
and yeast. The hops were there, no question about that. But none of it hit you right in the face. Instead, it poured a really clear mug with some nice hops brushing against your face.
The taste lingered, it was not over bitter (IBU sort of tell the story there), but the overall flavor came through
I enjoyed this beer , it wasnt at the top of my list of Founder beers, but I am sure there will be alot moreto come.

12 oz bottle. I was disapointed to see that it has a bottled on date of 3/12/12. At least it was in the cooler where I bought it.
appears clear golden in color, bone-white frothy head that fades fast. some floral hop aroma. maybe it's faded a bit though?
a bit of crisp malt flavor and a grassy, floral hop aftertaste. easy drinking. thin to medium body, medium to higher carbonation, fine for the style.
overall - a solid everyday pale ale, but not as spectacular as some of Founders other stuff.

A: Amber beer, with almost no head at all. Some slight sediment floating throughout.
S: Floral and slightly musty aroma. Not unpleasant, but there's not a whole lot exciting going on.
T: Taste is heavily floral, lots of rose notes. Starts with the caramel malts, then a sweet rose flavor, and finishes with a kiss of the bitter hops. Really a well balanced and tasty beer.
M: Medium body, but the carbonation lightens it up quite a bit, makes it go down easily.
O: A tasty beer. Not all that different, but well balanced and solid. Easy to drink and definitely worth picking up.
