    Altbier is like the Rush of beers: it’s a great style that doesn’t receive nearly enough airplay. It’s basically the German version of the brown ale. This is a mo...

    We went to great lengths to keep this beer as true to style as possible. Copper in color, with a noticeable hop character, this is a great seasonal beer served only in summer. ...

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a big dimpled mug. There is no noticeable freshness date on the bottle.

    Appearance: It has a deep rich golden body with visible carbonation and good clarity. A two finger thick and foamy white head sits on top. It slowly fades to a thin layer that hangs on well and some slick lacing.

    Smell: The aroma is light and has a delicate light grain note with a slight hint of spicy hops.

    Taste/Palate: It has a crisp pale biscuity malt with some light roasted notes as well. There is a mild sweetness from the malt and a nice equal balance of bitterness and leafy/grassy/spicy hop flavor notes. It finishes crisply with a slight balance towards the bitter hop side. The palate has a medium body with plenty of active carbonation.

    Notes: Stoudts has an extremely drinkable crisp body and nice simple flavor that I could drink plenty of with some soft sour dough pretzels and mustard.
