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.

Draft at Frankford Hall with Dallas, Ann, Andrew and Jen. Pours a clear amber golden body with average white head and some lacing. Aroma is plain lager - nothing offensive though. Mouthfeel is clean, crisp and refreshing. Overall a nice sessionable kolsch.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 Pleasantly surprised. Fruity, light, soft with creamy head. Very light hops that mix in just nice with the structure of the beer. Refreshing and tasty. Grassy and fresh. Would definitely enjoy getting a case of this in a few months. Could see many beer types and non liking this one.
