Thanks Kegatron for sharing this with me. Pounder can pours a clear copper color with an off-white cap that shows decent retention and patchy lace.

The smell has almost a feel of hop dust overtop a caramel malt sweetness. Fresh, inviting and enjoyable nose on this.

The tastes echos the aroma with a lightly grassy and resinous hop aspect with slight caramel toffee malt but little contrasting sweetness.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A crushable ale that I would certainly drink again.

Thanks to pgh_penguins for the can.

Appearance: Burnt orange. Head is small and off-white with decent retention. Leaves a small cap with sporadic bubbles for the duration. Moderate carbonation on the pour. Some darker golds at the edges when held to direct light.

Smell: Toasted bread. Lightly caramelized malts. Bready. Some pithy bitterness. Hops run a touch herbal with some floral and citrus elements. Cooked. Slightly sweet in balance with the light roasted/toasted malts and the clean hops. A touch nutty with some grass and a bit of husk and cereal grains. A touch of pine needle and some vague tropical fruit (peach and mango). Really soft yeast adds a bit more dimension.

Taste: More of that toasted malt. Vague backing nuttiness. Toasted grain, some wheat husk, and hay. A touch of cereal grain and a mildly earthy hop presence. A very vague touch of pine needle bitterness coupled with some grapefruit flesh and a mild pithy finish. Malts are lightly sweet offering up some cooked sugars. A bit of a raw grain underneath. Very well balanced. Yeast adds a touch of fruity esters and a soft finish to the whole thing. A touch of pale malt thrown in the background as well. Bready.

Mouthfeel: Medium bordering on light body with a moderate, slightly bubbly, carbonation. Clean and a touch crisp on the finish.

Overall: Better than a jam band.

A solid drinking pale ale. No frills and not a lot to write home about, but that's ok here.

Pours a burnt orange to copper through the clear orange hues as lively bubbles of carbonation dance to the top to meet the foamy, off white head. After a few minutes the head is no longer, leaving a scattered lacing about the glass.

A hoppy aromatic nose offers pine, grapefruit, peaches, and maybe even nectarine. Very fruity and piney at the same time. There maybe some earthy type malt in there as well, but verdict is still out.

Much more piney on the palate. There are still traces of citrus but not nearly as much. The malt really comes forward on the palate as well, primarily biscuit or dark bread-like.

Medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation with a chewy, piney finish that offers up some peach at the very end.

Overall a pretty darn nice APA. Certainly a touch maltier than some of its hoppier counterparts, and a really nice "drinkable" brew.
