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.

ben4321 (5695) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/23/13, 200th Rater of this one

Aroma: This one has a fresh cut grass aroma, with plenty of bread and grain malts
Appearance: It pours a clearish orange-golden color with a small white head and some sticky lace
Flavor: Tastes grassy, grainy, a lightly fruity, with a nice, light sweetness and light-medium bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, it has a lively carbonation, a clean feel, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one is actually a really nice, clean, easy to drink beer. I could see this being a perfect beach beer, as it is light and easy to drink without sacrificing flavor (a tough tightrope to walk). Well done.

12 oz bottle. The pour is a pretty standard yellow-gold color with a fluffy white head on top. The aroma is mostly grassy and biscuity, but with some lemon and herbal undertones as well. This is clean, refreshing, and easy going down, albeit a bit unexciting. The flavors consist of cereal grains, crisp grassy hops, bready malt, and light citrus. A pretty solid warm weather brew I’d have no problems having again.

PorterPounder (7332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2013
Jacksonville, Fl - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a bright sparkling medium golden with a thin snow white head, some lacing. Aroma has some fresh lake water accents, a hint of grain, saaz hoppines akin to some German lagers. Flavor has some underlying buttery notes, some grainy notes, a touch of nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a nice texture to it. Refreshing - would make a good lawnmower beer.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Draft at Proof. Clear light golden pour with soapy white head. Faint grassy and pale malt aroma with grass and bread. Sweet bready malts up front fading into pale grains with a floral and grassy hop finish. Light bodied and very drinkable. Not too bad.

jbruner (3996) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow with thick bubbly white head and good lacing. Aroma of bready grains, sweet fruity esters, and bananas. Taste is mostly just the grainy malts, but light and easy to drink. Meh.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2013
3/2/13. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazed golden pour with a nice big white head that is thick, frothy, sticks, and laces a ton. Quite nice, actually. Lovely doughy and biscuity malty aroma with a touch of sweetness, hay, and grass. Lightly sweet, malty flavor with a hint of fruitiness, grass, hay, and plenty of doughy malts. This is actually quite nice for what it is. I dig it!

jredmond (7460) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2013
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.
