On-tap at Winking Lizard.
A: Pours a clear golden amber with a finger of white head. Good retention and decent lacing, with tons of carbonation bubbles flowing up through the glass.
S: Crisp pine hops with just a bit of light, somewhat indistinguishable sweet malts in there as well. Faint, but enjoyable.
T: Strong for what's being advertised as a "session" beer (even above the 4% ABV definition that I usually see), sweet malts seem a bitty toasty here and lots of crisp hop flavor. Semi-long lasting bitter finish.
M: Light, crisp body; lively carbonation with a dry finish.
D: As a low alcohol beer, the ethanol definitely doesn't come into play, but I wouldn't feel like another of these. The taste was pleasant for a bit, but without being particularly complex or a great taste, drinkability is just average.

12 ounce bottle -> tulip glass
Pours up a crystal clear medium gold with a small foamy head, pretty good retention, and small bits of lacing. I don't have the world's strongest sense of smell, but the nose seems to be mostly apples, and citrus. Taste is a little drier than I expected with a bit of yeastiness up front. The finish is citrusy and an undertaste of charcoal. Mouthfeel is nice with a good amount of carbonation. Not bad at all, but for Founders I was a little underwhelmed.
