Founders Dirty Bastard
Founders Dirty Bastard is a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy. This bottle (and others) was given to me by Founders Southeast Market Manger Jonathan Sikes. I’ve had this beer many times previous to this occasion, but this seemed like a good opportunity to go ahead and review it for Brew/Drink/Run. First off I’m tasting lots of sweet caramel and sweet malt. A good bit of hops and a touch alcohol warmth help make in the finish. Not always common for the style, but I think the balancing hops is what makes this beer so enjoyable for me. This was the first Scotch Ale that made a huge impression on me, and it is still one of my favorites today.
