light bodied, refreshing brew uses a small amount of caramel malt to give it a nice amber color with a hint of sweetness. Lower hopping rates and a smooth dry finish make this the perfect session beer to help you celebrate 25 years of Stoudt’s beers. 6 pack holder also indicates their Karnival Kolsch yeast is used.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2015
12oz bottle. Poured an amber color with an off white head. Floral hops, caramel and some fruitiness.

Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
This beer is a clear orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, fruit and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet malt, fruit and mild grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

looks like any other good beer, slightly darker than yellah. nice head, then quarter inch from a bottle. good bite fades but bitterness hangs for a while round the front of yer tongue. Seems to have more alky than 4.8, heheh. sounds like the description was written by a rater. some slag in thar. decent background sizzle. simple clean aroma. unique.

jsmerig (1663) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours a dark amber brown with a hint of red. Thick foamy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is floral hop with a bit of old leather. Taste is malty for a brief moment quickly followed by a touch of sour and a bit of a band aid.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that had decent retention. The nose is fairly light, just a little toasted maltiness and a minimal floral hop note. The flavor is a bit off, there’s a light sour twang that seems to indicate there might be a low level of infection here. Other than that, there’s just a little toasty malt and minimal bitterness on the back end. Lighter bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Methinks this one might be on the down hill side of it’s life. I wouldn’t recommend picking up a bottle of this one anymore.

BVery (11241) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Clear amber pour with a nice pillowy white head. Mostly dusty caramel malt on the nose. Taste has a little sweetness & zing to it - maybe from the Kolsch yeast? Still a pretty middle of the road brew.

ganache (6033) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Draught; this seems to have debuted last May but some of the held-back kegs must have trickled out. Very mild nose, a little malt sweetness but basically no hops, some dusty caramel/yeasty notes. Beautiful amber-copper body with a short lacing white head. Taste lightly sweet with minimal bitterness but doesn’t seem out of balance; there’s a dry, almost earthen tone on the caramel that helps out in lieu of hops. Watery light body, smooth with just a little prickle and a dry, crackery end. Mild swirling spice, but a bit of an unfortunate grainy/semi-stale note becomes more apparent with volume, overall not a big deal. A mild Amber with Kölsch yeast is great idea, would like to see more in this vein.

sonnycheeba (6264) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Tap. Pours clear, bright gold with average, creamy white head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts, floral and grassy hops, light pine, and light dates. Flavor is dry, bready malts, grassy hops, spice, light fruit, pine, and faint herbs; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

BeerandBlues2 (13706) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, floral and pine hops with toast and biscuit malt. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness with supporting sweet malt and light fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
