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.

Really impressed. Tasted at a tap takeover in Boston in a tulip glass. They really nailed this one in my mind. Great balance, strong, but not overwhelming on the nose and mid-palate and a nice, long, sweet finish. Nice hints of vanilla and oak. Would not have expected that a Bourbon Aged Pale Ale would turn out this impressive. I has a glass the next day with breakfast -- went perfectly with eggs, bacon and sausage. Go for it.

Look at it this way: a PBR with a shot of whiskey is the poor man's version of this delicious beer.

Thin lacing with a clear, straw colored body.

Smells of sweet liquor, bread.

The bourbon sweetness dominates, but notes of hops and toast nicely compliment the bourbon. Thin mouthfeel, but the complex flavors make up for it. I hope they bottle this someday.
