Founders ‘Solid Gold’ Lager

A new Lager brewed by Founders?
You bet your ass I’m gonna try this beer!
Wait, it gets even better.
They released it in a 15 pack.

But then…
I tried it.
Not very good, not very good at all.
This is not a “hit”.
The concept is awesome: A 4.4% ABV Lager from this brewery would have been perfect for tailgating, bbq’s, pretty much anything that involves daylong/nighttime session drinking.

In my mind, this should have been a sure fire hit, especially at the price point(12.99 plus tax on the 15 pack).
I wanted to love it.
There was just no taste.
Bland, boring, with no redeeming qualities.
I’ll pass in the future.

The Straight Hops: 1 out of 5 Kegs
I know, I never thought I’d dislike a beer from Founders either, but it is what it is.

On another note, I never usually do this, but I was so disappointed in this beer I decided to check some ratings on the “big 2” sites after writing this post.
I’m glad I don’t ever look at those reviews to pick out beer, the ratings were way too high to be real, just sayin’.


I like beer. I drink beer. Sometimes, I even review beer. If I feel like it...
