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)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow with suprisingle malty nose. Light hoppiness in initial swallow becomes more apparent at mid swallow, then mellows towards finish. Dry and assertive, with fantastic malty underpinning throughout.

Light yet extremely satisfying. Some bitter/floral hops, slightly malty with a vague breadiness; I bought it at the brewery, so it had to be fresh. This must be what Pilsner Urquell is like in Plzen; I have to think of Josef Svejk when I drink this. I agree with "Trappist Ales Rule," this is damn near perfection.
