Pils is reflective of a traditional German-style Pilsener. It is delicately dry with a firm bitterness.Brilliant straw color with medium body, and noble hop aroma. A terrific thirst quencher. An Excellent aperitif.

jgb9348 (5465) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Clear yellow golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of stale, cardboardy malt. A slight hoppiness in the scent, but nothing pleasant. Light-bodied; Tart and metallic maltiness up front with a subtle citrus taste and nothing else-no hops or sugars. Aftertaset shows a bland cardboard taste. Overall, VERY lacking-this one was way worse than expected! I’ll stick to the 765 mL bottles. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 07-December-04.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Pours clear yellow with some nice bubbling and a one-inch head. Good floral hop aroma. Flavor is quite malty with a crisp hop finish. A great pils, but still one step below Troegs Sunshine.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2004
12oz bottle. Sunshine yellow with spirals of microscopic bubbles. Scant frothy head leaves finely beaded lace. Spicy scented hopsin the nose- floral/perfumey/gingery (a bit of orange and pear fades along with the head); and toasted pine nut malt, which intensifies with warming. Malty flavor with zesty floral hop and a drop of honey. Crisp and more filling than expected. Perfect pinpoint carbonation. Finishes with a solid bitterness that is also floral and nutmeggy. Outstanding effort. Reminds me of excellent dry gewurztraminer.

BBB63 (6509) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Bottle via DocLock: Pours to a straw hue with a small but mostly lasting head a good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and floral hops (Saaz for sure), pale bready malting, light lemon and apple esters, a just a hint of allspice. The taste is what makes this beer so good. A crisp bitterness greets you and keeps you wanting more. There is a citric nature throughout and a grainy aspect too. The feel is lively and crisp, refreshing and that all you can ask of a pilsener. Overall, this is a good example of a fine German styled pils, recommended.

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Good commercial discription. Straw yellow color, small white head. Aroma of Saaz(grassy and very earthy). Althought the hops dominate, it does have a crafty malt body. Well made and a pilsner that is classic for the style.

Bottle. Had the chance to get this on tap at the brewery a few weeks ago but I declined to try some other rarer, newer brews instead. This is a pretty good pils, got some hops goin on with a nice malt balance. I am absolutely in love with Stoudt’s

Dorwart (2497) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2004
White frothy head. BIG carbonation. Light, crisp lemon aroma with some hops. Lemony flavor that is light and crisp also. Bit of wheat and malt in there. Color is a light gold ginger ale color. Finish is bready and malty with some hops presence. A decent brew in the usually bad pilsner style.

SpringsLicker (3382) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2004
This Pilsner pours a pretty light lemon yellow with a tall frothy white head. Clean Saaz hop aroma. Light body but the nice thing about this is it has a nice full round dryness that keeps it interesting. Very nice Pilsner worth seeking out.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Poured a light clear yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma is mixture of hay and fruit. Flavor is nice and crisp with fruit undertastes and a slightly dry finish. Very enjoyable pils.

biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2004
On tap at Stoudtsberg. Pretty good pils. I like them a little hoppier but this was pretty crisp and clean. The pils can go from pretty good to HORRIBLE really fast for me so this gets my seal of approval.
