I bought a six pack for father’s day but had to drink one a couple of days before. I pour it into a goblet and it developed a half inch head that quickly disappeared into thin air; my nose detected a bit of hops, some malt and nothing else, lacing is non-existent and the mouth feel did not add to the nose, this is an ok beer to have if you are tired of Bud and entertaining a lot of people like I am doing for Father’s Day. And don’t forget folks to support your local brewery….DRINK BEER. HOG.

12oz undated bottle. Founding Fathers Lager pours with a deep amber color and a small tan head. The head soon all but disappears despite a continual stream of rising carbonation bubbles.
M: medium-bodied, rather heavily carbonated beer.
A mix of hop flavors is matched by a balancing amount of caramel malt. In fact, the caramel malt comes to dominate after some warming. The weak aroma and flavor is followed by a short-lived but lightly tangy aftertaste.
O: inexpensive and maltier alternative to your standard American macro-lagers.

Bought it because of half the profits going to Military Families.
Poured into a pint glas and it yielded a fair head initially but it dissapaited to a Sam Adams like head in a minute or two.
Reddish/Amber color (I'm color-blind)sort of a whiskey color to me. Some carbonation that lingers.
Nose is slight with a little malt in there.
Mouth is a bit weak for me but probably just fine for the average Bud drinker what should be buying this brew.
Finish is dryish and malty.
Not a bad attempt that is a little behind Amber Bock. Will try it at some different temps and try to find on tap to see if it improves.

Served in a Pilsner Glass.
A - Hazy Orange, decent amount of carbonation. Head pours 1 finger width and with some lacing.
S - Bread smell with some malt. A little off smell, kind of skunky.
T - Faint caramel over malted barley grains, kinda tangy, and with notes of corn. Some bitterness.
M - It's light and carbonation is balanced.
O - 50% of profits go to U.S. Military families! Awesome! But the beer is dreadful. Will probably never get again.

The lovely mrs. bought home a six-pack of this beer remarking that, "hey, this is new, you should try this." How nice that she thinks of me (and beer). A dark-orange color, and a 1/4" head that quickly disappears into the aether. Mild carbonation. There's not too much of a smell other than some faint melon and grass. A nice, non-aggressive maltiness (though it has some bock qualities to it) makes this a refreshing beer that I don't have to think about too much to enjoy. Other than some tangy sourness, the taste doesn't linger.

Appearance: Nice amber with a little white head that laces nicely. The head appears to be chased by ninjas because it's gone.
Smell: Sweet malt.
Taste: Metal and sweet malt
Mouthfeel: Thin and watery but With awesome stinging carbonation.
At least its got some taste.

I think I'll give this the benefit of the doubt and review it as an Am. lager.
Slightly sweet malt, a little sulfur, and a tad of yeast. Kinda' standard.
Quick head. Amber and very clear.
Again, kinda' sweet with a heftier malt quality and something bigger than pils malt. Quick hop up front and then some of the finish for a short to moderate length finish. Slight vegetable quality.
Bigger body for style. Lots of prickly bubbles.
Overall, only okay. I appreciate the purpose and effort, but I really can't see myself getting too much of this going forward.

This beer tastes and smells like a mixture of malt liquor and diabetic hobo piss. I really wanted to like this beer. It comes from a Minnesota brewery, and they donate to good causes. They need to tweak the recipe, and/or maybe keep vagrants away from the fermenting tanks.
If it weren't for that, this would be a good beer. It looks good and has the right amount of carbonation, but it has sort of a dark corn syrupish taste and smell hidden somewhere in there that really needs to go.
