3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a straw yellow color with a big and fluffy white head. Good and strong malty aroma with a nice hoppy balance. Good malty flavor with a nice touch of sweet at the end and a good bitter finish. Quite refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild malt aroma with some hops. Golden yellow color with a good head that lasted some time. Good crisp clean hop flavor that was mild with a a mild malt and bread flavor in the finish. This is a very good mild pils that I could drink 5 or 6 of. Not as bitter as some german pils. Stoudts did a good job on this beer.

huh. i like the label. art nouveau, nice illustration, accurate kerning, looks like everything was spelled correctly. i do like big bottles-- like this one. especially when they hold good beer. this bottle holds, uh, beer. lightly golden clear beer with a fine white head. thats all good-- i mean, i'd be alarmed if it looked like tomato juice. what i'm getting at here is that this is a donkey in a race horse outfit. i got corn cob in the aroma-- fresh corn cob admittedly. brisk and bland margarine cracker flavor, with a bit of lemon. (the bottle cap has more bitterness). i just couldn't discover anything substansial going on here-- and i'm always afraid that if i say "wow, this is refreshing and good!", someone will step out of the closet and proclaim "you're on candid camera! you've just proclaimed your passionate endorsement of this fire-brewed strohs that we disguised in a fancy stoudt's bottle! congradulations! you're a charlatan and a dumb ass!!" then i shoot the guy for criminal trespass and i get dragged into lengthy and expensive court proceedings. that would suck. better just to say upfront that this is very mediocre.

A refreshing pils - bready malts with a crisp and dry finish. The one different thing about this was that the body was very thick for the style. (on tap at the BrewKettle)
