Details

The full name of this beer is ‘curmudgeon better half’, a curmudgeon is a bad tempered person, generally an old one. Better Half goes out to all the sweeter other half’s out there, the only people that can make the old grumps smile. A sweet brown ale with a sensational amount of maple syrup and dry boozy finish, your dentist would not approve of this beer.

Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

Very sweet and heavy, full of aroma. It's incredible good when sipped slowly, which works well at this ABV level.

Very strong and much too sweet for my taste

An outstanding beverage indeed, on a par with KBS 2019, but less powerful on the flavour scale, no chocolate, very smooth and a beer to be savoured.

Syrupy pour. Malty aroma. Palate is definitely bourbon barrel aged. I would class this as more a barley? A sipper but a bloody good one!
