2.96/5 rDev -10.6%
Pounder can poured into a standard pint glass. The brew pours a clear light golden yellow color with a finger of white head that fades back to soapy lacing and a thin film across the top.
The aroma has a bit of perfume-like lemon to coriander character over a slight yeast spicing like black pepper. Minor hints of earth and wheaty grain are also present but they play a very minor supporting role to the lemon inclusion.
The taste has a lemony zesty bitterness almost grassy and solvent and perfune-like. A touch of herbal conponent and faint yeast almost like clove and pepper are noticed with additional sips. However, the oily lemon-like zest and bitterness is the dominating character.
This is a medium to light bodied brew with a very light amount of carbonation. It is pretty bitter for a blonde with almost astringent perfume finish. It i ok to say ive tried it but I would avoid ever having this again.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a golden color with a small pure white foamy head. The head fades superfast leaving only a very light level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is quite light overall. While light, there are notes of a bit of a bready malt as well as some wheat. Rounding out the smell is just a little bit of a grass and some pine hop.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and bready flavor with just the lightest hint of sweetness. The biscuit and bready remain throughout the taste, but the sweet flavors are almost lost completely in the middle of the taste. The loss of the sweetness is accompanied by the arrival of some cracker malt flavors as well as a rather decent showing of some hop. The hop initially is of a lemon citrus taste, but is joined by some pine and earth. With just a hint of sweetness coming back to the tongue at the end, all in all, one is left with a still rather dry and lightly malted taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The medium body and carbonation are both very appropriate for the style and make for an easy drinker.
Overall – This is a rather easy brew to sit back and drink. While nothing exceptional, it is on the slightly drier and actually more hoppy side for a blond making for a rather enjoyable brew to sip on a warmer day.

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades to a thin cap that leaves some nice lacing
S: Quite malty, with a very light sweetness. Some almost unnoticeable hops come through, providing a slight hint of earthiness
T: Again, pretty much all malt until the VERY end. Starts off with a light sweetness and goes into some vegetal notes (almost like creamed corn, although this is not nearly as bad as creamed corn sounds in a beer). Hoppiness lends a light bitterness in the finish
M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation
O: A fairly average blonde, lacking any decent hop presence. The maltiness is nice, but it's a little unbalanced. Decent, but at nearly $10 for a 4-pack I wouldn't consider it again

Pours a clean pale yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, floral and a light lemon citrus presence. In the taste, a lighter lemon citrus and a dry floral presence. A lighter bitterness with a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, and a semi dry lemon citrus in the aftertaste. Decent, clean, and refreshing.

Appearance 3.25: Attractive color. Kind of a dark golden yellow. Head was decent, around a 1/5".
Smell 3.5:Pleasant bouquet. Nice blend of malt and hops.
Taste 3.25: Front is where the alkaline hops seep in. Middle is clean and cool and neutral. Finish features more malty caramel flavors and more subdued and pleasant hoppiness. Aftertaste is relatively long and slightly burning to the sides of the mouth.
Mouthfeel: 3.25: Carbonation level is standard for this style of beer.
Overall 3.25: Good, solid brew. Nothing special, but who says it has to be? I particularly enjoyed the balance between the hops and the malt. Definitely worth a try if you can find it.
