A - Ultra clear and straw in colors. 1 finger white head with light carbonation. Head disappears rather slowly. 4/5

S - Base malt. Very lightly hopped. Hint of rice? Unsure of this last aroma though... Something else besides base malt and hops, but unsure of what it is... 3.5/5

T - Malty, yeasty. Some graininess and very light hops. Foral notes are somewhat noticeable but not much so. Grassy finish. Ever so slight spiciness (pepper). 3.5/5

M - Very light and clean. Lingering bitterness. 3.75/5

O - Drinkability is very nice, and works well as a session beer. Taste reflects what is hinted at in the aroma. Very light and clean. Not a beer that I will order again from Founder's due to other offerings but I'm glad I at least gave this a shot.

On Tap at the Founders Brewhouse - Grand Rapids, MI

A - cloudy yellow, 1 finger of head, lace left on glass

S - light malting and hopping. Not much nose.

T - Fairly sweet and alightly bitter. Floral. Tastes refreshing

M - very carbonated. Sizzled. Awesome mouth

O - An awesome light golden pale. Easy to drink. I could drink this all day and not get all boozed up.

Why is this a tap room exclusive? Such an ordinary beer, and not very Founders-esque. It almost tastes like there's corn in there. It was kind of hard to go from some of the more legendary beers Founders offers, and then having one of these. It tastes average. There is a slight hoppiness and bitterness in the taste, but it's rather bland and unexciting. It's definitely a sessionable sort of brew, but I'd sooner take their standard pale ale over this any day. Not much to miss here, folks.
