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.

After absorbing the fairly pedestrian appearance of golden and clear with little to no head activity, I took in the nose of muted grains under an odd freshwater thing (think of the faint smell of a lake). Taste supplied plenty of corn taste with a solid bitter backbone just prior to the not too dry, not too cloying mouth feel. All around clean drinker, great session beer and likely a superb gateway beer but not the most earth shaking offering when lined up against all their other fun treats.
