Stoudts Brewing Company - Pils

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a fluted glass

This German-style Pilsner from Stoudts pours a shining crystal clear medium-gold straw body with a modest head of fine white foam. The head retention is moderate and produces thick, chunky lacing. The nose is malty with prominent Noble-type hops. A slight dustiness from the hops and a Belgian-like yeast aroma give the beer a classic Pilsner profile and at once signals a modern interpretation.

The sweet velvety malts up front hold well with an attack from dandelion-like hop bitterness. The hop profile comes into its own on the mid-palate. The crisp finish is very dry and producing a lasting, almost desert-like mouthfeel. The only solution is to quench the arid feel with another sip.

Final Verdict: B
