On tap at Founders brewpub on 11/29/08. Served in a 12-oz. glass.

A - Clear medium brown body with a short off-white head that receded and left little lacing. Modest carbonation overall with nice body clarity.

S - Hmmmm... not much at all except for some sweet malty notes and faint nuttiness. Pretty bland aroma.

T - Again, pretty ho-hum and boring, even for a brown ale, which I typically find pretty pedestrian anyway. Flavor consists of some sweet caramel malt and a slight nutty character with no noiticeable hop presence.

M - Pretty thin and watery for a brown ale. Kind of reminds me of what "swish" would feel like in my mouth.

D - Definitely a less than stellar offering from Founders, I'm afraid. The best thing about this beer was the tap handle.

Editor's note: We were surprised and delighted to take notice of the tap handle for this selection, which depicted Julian, Bubbles and Ricky, aka The Trailer Park Boys... one of my favorite TV shows! The "Swish" refers to a homemade alcohol that Julian gets hooked on in one episode.
