Beer Review Wednesday ~ Stoudt's Pils
I went to the Stoudt's website and I must say this isn't just a brewery, these people have a small compound! There's an antique shop, a restaurant, market, event space for weddings and such, oh and of course a brewery. Impressive. But anyway, back to the beer, here we go with the PILSNER review.
Serving type: Bottle poured into an ALABAMA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS pint glass. I know I should have used a Pilsner glass but I'm working on that.
Appearance: Light gold/straw color. Clear with medium head. It didn't produce as big of a head as I'm used to seeing in a Pils.
Smell: A slight sweet smell with a hint of hops. This Pils doesn't have much of an aroma.
Taste: Light, crisp with a slight hop flavor with a slight bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Great carbonation, light body with a dry finish.
Overall: Very easy to drink and a pretty good Pilsner! This is another great beer for the summer and I'm glad I ventured out to try some new brands. This isn't my favorite Pils EVER but I would definitely drink this one again. So far Sam Adams Noble Pils is my fav American Pilsner but I'm looking for new ones to try!
I bought my Stoudt's Pils at Stone River Total Beverages in Murfreesboro, TN. I went to Stoudt's website to find other locations but apparently they haven't updated it lately because it's showing no distribution in TN.
If you find Stoudt's in your area please leave a comment and spread the love! Also let me know of any other great Pilsners I can try!
