Poured a somwhat cloudy amber color with an appliance white 2 finger head. Little lacing was present. Aroma was floral hoppy. Taste was sweet malt up front followed by the piney hop bitterness but in a very balanced way. Moderate carbonation and body with a bit of an oily feel.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a small white head. Bitter with hoppy aromas of spruce with notes of grapefruit. Also hints of a malty backbone. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation and bitter finish.

The beer has a nice white head and the body is golden in colour.

Strong citrus and pine notes that are really pleasant. Same for the taste. The hop bitterness is really lovely on this beer.

Light to medium bodied and the finish is crisp and refreshing.

This is a delightful beer if you enjoy this style. Perfect for anytime, especially hot summer days.

Founders All Day is an encouraging campaign for long afternoon cracklings with your mates but unfortunately falls flat to other session options. Luring me in with a sexy amber color and light head this brew makes further promises a strong fragrant head. Upfront you are hit with floral and citrus wafts on the nose with slight pine forest background. Unfortunately this is a style over substance problem as the sexy aroma and looks give way to overly aggressive hops which while encouragingly dry are muddled in their punch to the pallet. As you finish off a quaff the palate is left with a chalkly mineral dischord. Lots of lead up to a disappointing end. Not a bad beer overall but strictly middle of the road in terms of overall flavor. Body is a couple notches south of medium and finishes light on the tum making extended drinking feasible if you are buzzed enough to forgive the lack of finesse on the tastebuds buds.

good beer - hops are upfront, satisfying, but loses something toward the bottom of the can. I find the text on the can interesting. something "like drink all day but keep your senses about you" it seems like a lawyer would have a field day with that. must try more founders. a little weak on the alcohol, but hey, I can drink it all day.

$ 10/six pack of 12 oz bottles ($ 0.139/oz) at Oppermann’s, Saginaw, MI.
Bottled 2/15/17. Stored at 42 degrees and served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma – citrus predominates with piney undertones.
Head – average (Maximum 3.5 cm, aggressive pour), off white, medium density, average duration, diminishing to a dense irregular five to ten mm ring and rocky partial layer fed by effervescence.
Lacing – excellent. Complete rings of tiny bubbles featuring stalactites and columns connecting the next ring.
Body medium yellow, almost clear (chill haze), effervescent.
Flavor odd. Definitely a citrus slant but a little chalk. Possibly a citrus fruit with which I’m not familiar. Not unpleasant. Some malt. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

One of the poorer offerings from Founders, IMHO. Perhaps Oppermann’s propensity to store large quantities of beer at room temperature has something to do with it. The chalky aftertaste makes this a case of one six pack and done.

Appearance 4.25, Aroma 4, Flavor 3, Palate 4, Overall 3.5.
