COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The driest and most delicate of our lagers. Stoudt’s Pils is characteristic of the traditional European Pilseners. Straw-yellow and assertively hopped with Saaz hops, this frequent medal winner has a refreshing bitterness and refined hop aroma.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Deep golden color with small foamy white head. Nose was think in hops and grain. Flavor was bitter up front with estery notes, and a clinging bitterness, very thick for a German Pils, more like a Bohemian. But, it was heavy hopped in a good way. Mass market pils are either bitter with no hops, or IPA like. This was in the middle. This beer has some depth, which was a plus.

joeneugs (3328) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Lighthouse. It pours a brilliantly clear golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is very bready/malty with light notes of noble hops. The flavor has stronger noble hops, a full body with fat pale malts and a spicy, strong bitterness in the finish. Good stuff. Could be a bit more aromatic.

asheft (2544) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
[on tap at Local 50, PHI airport] Aroma of hay and fresh, sweet and spicy noble Saaz hops. Clear straw under a persistent white cover and lace. Slightly lagery sulfur together with dry pilsner malt, spicy hops, and an assertive bitterness. Balance is a bit too far towards bitter. Medium-light body, moderate-medium carbonation, lingering bitterness.

NikkTwist (1669) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a lasting foamy off-white head. Light but solid pils. Nice dry grassy finish.

BiddleBrau (948) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Crisp flavor, hint of grain but nice malt profile. Hops work well and are to style. Fresh and familiar.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Another pilsener without much good saaz hops. Pours golden with good head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness. Smells nice. Some sweetness here. Watery texture. On tap at DC Summerfest.

scotchzombie (347) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2014
Hazy straw yellow with a soapy white head that hangs out and laces robustly. Aroma is wheat and grass. Taste is crisp grains and noble hops with a bit of lemon and honey. A very good pilsner that balanced sweetness with some finishing bitterness.

Patrickctenchi (3814) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle: Pours clear, yellow-gold with a whipped white head. Lemon, barley malt, sour grain aroma. Taste is grain, grassy bitter hops.... Pretty nice Pils.

On draft. Clear straw color. Little head. Slightly hop aroma. A decent bitterness taste. Pretty good pils.

ScipioA (314) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Comes out as crystal clear, very light yellow with a giant and dense white head. Crisp but barely-there aroma, Deutsche hops with hints of white wine. Similarly weak flavor, a little sweet and a little hoppy. An intense lingering spiciness is probably the highlight of this beer, other than the really well-balanced mouthfeel. There’s a ton of excellent German-style lagers coming out, this is decent but can’t roll with a lot that you can find these days.

Hoppy and fruity. Balanced. A beer like this makes me want to purchase cases again. In PA, that is a full commitment to make.
