Mouthfeel

The feel is crisp and dry with a medium body and moderate carbonation. A firm bitterness lingers through the finish.

Overall

Its appearance is superb and both the aroma is quite pleasant. The bristling carbonation and crisp feel support its hoppy palate nicely. Overall, the Pounder Pils is a brew that’s easily quaffed and a solid representation of the style.
