I didn't think too much of this one. Just not a good beer.

On tap at the brewery. Clear golden. Smells of grain and bready malt. Lightly floral hops tastes of cracker malt, a little perfumey, and a tiny bit of spicy hop bitterness. Light body. Kind of a nothing beer. Very bland, but nothing wrong with it.

On tap at Founders last week. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a clear light golden color with a nice white head and a good bit of lacing. The nose is pretty plain with some very faint malt character. Nothing too complex or hop-forward. Flavor has very faint hops with some light grain. Crisp carbonation and a light body. Well-made and a good introductory beer, but pretty boring.
