Beer Review: Stoudt’s Gold Lager

In Munich Helles Lager, Reviews on July 16, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Another new brewery in Louisiana! It’s a bit late of a post, but Stoudt’s has been in New Orleans for about a month, and I’m very excited.  They make a lot of great beers with a German focus, as those guys in Pennsylvania like to do.  This is the first one I cracked down in New Orleans.  Here’s my review:

Pours a clear golden straw color.

It is slightly sweet with mostly husky grain and pale malt, some breadiness, and hints of lemon and sulfur.  Very clean and straightforward. Beauty in simplicity.

It is light and bubbly.  Very crisp with clean bready grain that transitions to a hint of lemon from the hops then a quick, snappy slightly bitter and earthy finish.  Definitely Noble hops if I’ve ever tasted ‘em.

Very easy drinker, clean, simple and enjoyable.

Style: Munich Helles Lager

ABV: 5%
