COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new spring seasonal beer, Karnival Kolsch is arriving just in time for our Fasching Karneval . We are very excited about the release of this beer. For the first time in Stoudt’s history, we are releasing a brand new beer that has already received a medal at the Great American Beer Festival. This refreshing German-style ale was brewed using 2-row malt, a small amount of red wheat malt, and all German hops for bittering and aroma. This straw colored ale is smooth like a lager due to the colder fermentation temperature and extended cellaring time. It is dry and crisp with a slight fruitiness which compliments the mild hop bitterness and aroma. This light ale is a fresh complement to most foods, but in particular fish, chicken, and salads. Karneval Kolsch will be available at your local distributor soon.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was shimmering straw with 2 fingers of wispy white foam sitting on top. Nose is wet cement, malt, and a light tangy citrus. Taste is tangy/sweet citrus and dry, bitter hops that extend into a long finish that comes up sweet after about 30 seconds. Very strange, but is a very noteworthy aspect of this brew. It is probably my favorite part ... a finish that starts dry and bitter, but then turns tangy/sweet and wet.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a large soapy white head. The aroma was light sweet and tangy malts with a touch of citrus. The flavor was tangy, malty and sweet with a light yeasty presence and touches of table sugar and citrus. The finish was long, sweet and tangy. Medium body. Solid.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2010
On tap at Kelly’s. Rich orange-gold with a thin white head. Nose and flavor show significant fruit, light hay and biscuit, and some lightly piney hop through the finish. Creamy, easy, and enjoyable, I could drink a gallon of this. Can’t say that about Hunahpu’s or PBR.

Draft. Light golden pour. Definitely the newer kolsch, via the old ratings were of a better beer. Citrus, and earthy spice notes along with some bready malt notes. Alright.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, cereal grain, honey, sweet malt. Flavor is sweet upfront with a malty, bready finish. Easy drinking, tasty Kolsch. Slightly on the sweet side but that’s it’s only flaw. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2010
On-tap at Cole’s. Light colour, with carbonation bubbles. Neutral aroma, minimal head. This is a thirst quencher but the taste was rather minimal. Unoffensive but fairly plain, and so not that drinkable.
