alobar (3864) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Pours a clear amber color with a white soapy head. Aroma of citrus, honey, and grain. Citrus, caramel, and a hop bite at the back end. Very nice beer. chinchill (5183) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2014
undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
A: reddish-amber color; clear with a moderate, creamy head of limited duration. Little lacing.
S: nice malty aroma with hints of bread and toffee.
T: light, grassy hops, a trace of citrus, and a light malt backbone. Hoppy for style, as is most obvious in the lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Tasted on 1/31/12 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear, deep brass with an average beige head that leaves a thin layer of even lace. The nose is a nice blend of pleasant hoppiness and a hint of caramel malt. The flavor is exactly the same, with the hops showing lightly fruity. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long lightly bitter and fruity finish. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden orange color with apricot colored edges and a two finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Great retention with streaks of soapy lacing coating the glass on the way down.
Floral, resinous hop aroma with some earthy pine, fresh cut grass and dank buds countered by toast bread and a sweet malt backbone. Some spicy hop character with a touch of citrus but the hop profile is more oil-y and earthy than sweet. Underneath, there’s a strong caramel backbone with hints of bread, toffee sweetness, spicy rye, roasted nut and sunflower seed. Nothing about the nose really stands out but there’s a decent hop presence that doesn’t completely overpower the other notes.
Medium body with spicy, bitter hop flavor that lingers over the sweeter notes into a dry finish. Dry and resinous with sticky pine and earthy grass notes dominating the palate. Much more hop forward than the nose hinted at. Hop profile is a bit one dimensional but the flavor is pretty nice and not overwhelmingly dry or intensely bitter. Really well balanced with a sweet malt backbone coming through on the back end. These sweeter notes really start to show as the beer warms with hints of caramel, toast, toffee, hazelnut and a touch of dark fruit. Faint boozy sweetness in the finish but the ABV is well masked with not heat whatsoever. Not the most complex beer but it’s well balanced and easy to drink with nice flavor. I could easily drink several of these in one session. Solid beer from Stoudts. trapped (3401) - New York, TURKEY - JAN 19, 2016
Draught @ Albion. Reddish amber with normal sized foamy light beige head, sweet caramel aroma, medium carbonation, hoppy taste mixed with sweetish caramel, thin body, long bitter finish with caramel aftertaste. Quite a nice mix of hops and caramel.

Bottle. Amber color. Smells of amber carmel. Color is brown amber, Tatse is hoppy and balanced. Not as hoppy as the bottle states, but a good decent APA. DocLock (10840) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep copper with ruby hints and a 3-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, citric hops, slight rock sugary and funk notes. Tastes caramel malty, somewhat tart, very resiny and bitter hoppy. Palate is medium in heft and complexity. Good, but not as good as the pils, APA, IPA, and IIPA. oobawa (1596) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Pretty, but the nose is all dark malt and grain, nary a hop to be found. Tastes semidry, with a dark, caramel middle surrounded by a immediate and lingering swipe of hops. But the hops don’t have the wanted depth; the beer is bitter, but doesn’t deliver on any solid pine, herbal, or citric flavors that are usually prevalent in a "hoppy red." But I’m being too negative; this bottle isn’t bad beer. In fact, there’s a grainy, earthy charm to the malts, and the hops never grow annoying, even if the bitterness is without any accompanying charm.

Local Belmont bottle. Clear amber pour with a medium, foamy head and decent lacing, Bigger aroma that starts with sweeter hops and finishes with sweet malt. Huh? Everything kinda disappears in the flavor. Just some lingering, flat bitterness. High hopes faded quickly. IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle poured pint glass. Pours a beautiful amber color with a frothy head. Beer unfortunately looks better than it tastes but the hoppy red taste is still there. I found my taste wanting more hoppiness but that due to my love for ipas! This beer does the trick for your hopped amber beer needs. Its solid taste, beautiful color, and consistant head make this beer a great decision for a Monday night.
