Poured from a chilled 12 oz. bottle on a nice summer evening (not too hot, low humidity -- just the perfect Mediterranean weather).

App: Gold with slight hints of orange color. Some aeration with 2 fingers of head.

Aroma: Gorgeous citrusy and hoppy aroma. Delightful!

Taste: Malt and hops. The citrusy aroma is not supported in the taste of the beer. If you like citrusy aromas but not necessarily like to taste citrus in your beer, this one is for you. No fruity taste either. Just malt and nice hops -- not too overpowering.

Mouthfeel: Keeps the aroma and the taste -- does not back off.

Overall: A surprisingly good malty and hoppy ale. Gorgeous aromas and great taste. If you like citrus aromas but don't like its taste in the beer this one is for you -- malt and hops too.

Purchased a bottle for later consumption while in Philadelphia, at the Craft Beer Outlet.

The DVD which came with my subscription to Beer magazine included a segment with the woman who founded this brewery, making drinking it now more interesting, as did the somewhat American flaglike label on the bottle.

Poured into a tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: Transparent amber with a two-finger thick white head which dissipated slowly to a heavy surface foam with extensive lacing. Nice!

s: Mildly piney.

t: Just like the smell, due to the hops balanced against the malt. Those pine notes increased as consumption proceeded.

m: light to moderate, smooth and refreshing.

o: A creditable pale ale, and a very good summer session brew. I will be looking for more Stoudt's the next time I pass through Pennsylvania or wherever else it shows up.
