Pounder Can poured into a pint glass.

The appearance of this beer is a reddish dark brown with a huge off white head that built and died quickly from my vigorous pour. The head and the beer left no noticeable lacing during the drinking process. The aroma on this one is pretty much the same as many other American macro style beers. It is grainy sweetness with a metallic twang. The taste is extremely bland in the beginning and has a mild roasty sweetness to it towards the middle. It finished slightly metallic, like the taste of your own blood, and then has a tiny bit of bitterness. The mouthfeel is crisp water.

Overall, this beer is not very good at all, but I used to buy and drink a lot of this stuff because for the price the case of pounders is a good deal. It is pretty ho-hum though and not much better than any macro lager. There is just a touch more flavor than standard macro beers. Being a Pennsylvanian, and given that people around here really appreciate Yuengers, I still have a place in my heart for Yuengling.

A:Thin tan head with a little lacing on a jet black body

S: caramel malt comes through the most and other wise not much else there.

T: caramel malt up front fading to roasted malt. A touch of chocolate and licorice notes.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation. 

Overall: easy to drink but not a fan of the genre
