Beer Review: Stoudts Pale Ale

In American Pale Ale, Reviews on July 28, 2011 at 12:49 pm

This is one of my favorite labels, and just in time for me to enjoy around the Fourth of July.  While it is illegal to use the flag to sell a product, Stoudts represents this American Pale Ale beautifully.  Bud cans should take the hint around this time of year.  Here’s my review:

Pours golden honey color with a sudsy white capping of foam.  Bready pale malts and touches of caramel fill the nose with grassy and floral green hop notes.

It has a light and zippy taste from the bitter Cascade hops with a creamy malt base.  Fruit and grass meander until a bitter grapefruit peel snap finishes out the sip.

It has a creamy body with prickly carbonation that keeps it light and refreshing.

This is a great go to beer to be enjoyed in the summer months.  With a low ABV, it can definitely be your new lawnmower beer, or just a good excuse not to mow the lawn.

Style: American Pale Ale

ABV: 5%

Cheers!
