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.

Poured from a 16oz can into an imperial pint glass a clear deep golden with a full one finger white head atop that lasted for the duration.Aromas of Amarillo hops abound,leafy,with some sweet onion and aspirin,wich I tend to like,caramel malts show thru more as I drink more.Hops dominate the palate up front with leafy and grassy notes dominating,the aspirin notes also come into play,a biscuity maltiness holds true to the finish but the hops are the show.I really like this pale,the hop profile is fantastic and the alcohol is low so I can drink the four pack without a problem.Solid.

Amber gold, crispy clear color with a nice lacy white head. Aroma is bright, fruity, and happy. Cereal grains, citrus, tropical, grassy hop. Taste is refreshing and pleasantly hoppy. This is a very easy to enjoy beer. Flavors are flowery peach, apricot, apple, pine cones, grapefruit zest, all mixed really well together. Finishes with brisk carbonation and tingly hop dryness.

16oz can

Quite dark for a "session pale" - very bready with notes of spiced dough and rye. Rather dull hop profile and lacking characteristics I would like to see in a 'session'. One of these was enough - not a beer to revisit in the future.
