Beer pick of the week: Stoudt’s Pils

Posted By on Tue, Aug 12, 2008 at 3:45 PM


Stoudt’s Pils

Stoudt’s Brewing Company

Adamstown, PA

4.7% ABV

A classic German pilsener made by a German family from Pennsylvania, Stoudt’s Pils is as close to Bohemia as you can get in the United States. It pours clear and golden, with a steady stream of bubbles forming a neat cap of clingy head. Spicy, floral Saaz hops greet the nose along with some bready malts. The taste is grainy and delicately sweet, backed with a solid hop bitterness and a dry, grassy, hay-like finish. The frothy mouthfeel is light but not thin. As good a pilsner as you will find, in or out of Germany, and perfect for backyard barbeques and ballgames.
