3/3/12 Stoudt's Pils

So I was thinking last night that I should make this blog a little more interesting and still relate it to my typical beer reviews. So I am going to go back to trying and putting a recipe in here and there to go along with the beer I chose to review and I am also going to try and throw in some health tips here and there because I thinking drinking in moderation is healthy and promotes a lot of good things when not done to excess. So last night I had Stoudt's Pils which came in at a nice temp of 41.4 degrees which I think is my favorite temperature to drink beer at. Its not to cold to hide the flavor but not so warm that I find it not enjoyable. The head was average at 2 1/2" with a foamy white appearance and excellent head lacing. The carbonation was medium with sparkling clarity and a yellow color. The aroma was perfume and taste was an earthy barely. The flavor was moderate with a long finish length and a dry mouth feel. The tongue hit was towards the back and the body lacing was excellent. Overall I give it a B+ it was a solid beer with a great taste just nothing that made me love it. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
