BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: English Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
A delicious corn-based beer that, thanks to its low original ABV and unassuming flavor profile, acted as a ‘yum-sponge’ grabbing everything available from barrel aging. Oak-y, bourbon-y and corn-y, this lil’ sucker retains its original crushability while adding the complex flavors of barrel aging. Aged 160 days in 18 year bourbon barrels.

The pour I had was a boozy, malty, slightly hoppy mess.

Draft at McLaddens Northampton, MA.

A- Slightly hazy deep golden body into a baby snifter. Small white frothy cap ends as a creamy band. Rare spots of lacing.

S- Straight up Bourbon barrel woody wet oak and whiskey off the top and not much else. Something slightly fruity like the pale ones.

T- Very woody here again with a plank of oak coating the palate. Semi sour feel to the peppery Bourbon and hints of alcohol. Vanilla, pale fruits, herbal spicy tones and caramel.

MF- Smooth and silky medium body with a creamy overall consistency. Carbonation is on the high side with a bite to it.

Seems just like a medium malty feel with a big, unbalanced whiskey barrel. Super fresh woody oak and Bourbon dominate the experience.
