3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2007 Bottle... Sparkling clear, straw-colored lager with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Very good retention and excellent, thunderhead-like lacework. The nose is citrusy and floral with light notes of orange blossom honey and butterscotch. Decently-balanced flavor with good, crisp, saaz bitterness. Stoudts is never shy with their hops when the style calls for them. Light lemon. Medium-bodied with a lightly oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Medium-length, crisp, mildly bitter finish.

(Best by 1/06/2005) The nose is very fresh and full of noble hop goodness. The beer it self is very pale and unassuming, but do not be fooled because it is packed with flavor and complexities. The palate is light, smooth, bitter, and malty. The hops and the pils malt blend well to produce a well made/balanced beer. The finish is long and hoppy. Overall, the beer is infinitely drinkable. I like it!

(Draft @ Stoudt’s Microbrewer’s Festival) Poured an incredibly light, polished gold color. Tight, quickly dissipating white head w/no lacing. Surprisingly hoppy for being so light. Sweet but not cloying. Crisp mouthfeel. A very quaffable Pilsener!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big 25 oz bottle: Great appearance- light yellow with a substantial head and great carbonation. Aroma is spicy herbal grassy and slightly earthy. Flavors are hoppy backed up with some soft smooth ligth malts. I really like prima pils better, but I think stoudts pils is more to style and is almost as enjoyable. This one is highly under-rated. Go to the brewery and pick up a couple of the big bottle conditioned pils’s if you are in the area.

This is a perfect Pils. Not too demanding, clean crisp, slight bittnerness in the middle.
