First had: on tap at McGillin's Olde Ale House, Philly, PA

This beer is definitely not retired, being the house brew at McGillin's.

An okay brew, not too distinctive, Stoudt's Real Ale came to me in a pint glass, clear amber in color with a thin, wispy, white head. Mostly caramel malts in the aroma, a bit metallic, with some light, fruity hops coming through. Basic malty taste, a touch of brown sugar and orange zest, and slightly toasted grains. Decent, but nothing special. Light-medium mouthfeel, and fairly drinkable, but nothing I'd get again. Also it's only available at McGillian's, which is a terrible place.

Serving type: on-tap

Good looking dark brew- somewhat surprising for the APA style. Roasted malt aromas and slight bitterness on the nose. Flavor was surprising as well- burnt caramel malts, sticky sweet with a slight warming hop finish, though not very dominant. It seemed a departure from the style- nicely carbonated but very heavy on the mouth and the stomach. Nice flavors, but deceiving in its presentation.

Slightly hazed caramel amber with a thin, beige head. Decent retention and good lacing at the beginning of the pint. Fresh fruity and spicy hop aroma - it reminded me a bit of Orange Crush, but without as much orange and sweetness. Moderate bitterness with some malty caramel to balance out the fresh, spicy hoppiness. There also seemed to be a hint of cinnamon in the aftertaste. Dry, especially from the hops, with a medium/light body. A solid house ale.

A very nice beer. Has a beautiful amber color. Has a nice crisp sweetness to it. Very smooth and easy to drink, but may get heavy after a while. Not a beer to get drunk on, but a great beer if you just wanna have 2-3 beers. Has a nice foamy head and not a lot of carbonation.

Pours a bright clear amber color, with a decent head but dies fairly quick. On the nose are sweet caramel malt, and a slight biscuity aroma. On the palate, pretty much the same story, more caramel flavor, a little over board on the sweetness, slightly hoppy, biscuity and a little bit of toasted grain. Drinkable brew from Nodding Head, only served at McGillin's.

A quite drinkable beer that pours a deep amber in color with a nice off white head. Flavor was dominated by a malt sweetness, but also included some rich caramel and nice hop bite. Served only at McGillin's in Philly as far as I am aware.
