This is a perfectly mediocre U.S. ESB from a solid Pennsylvania craft brewer. I was expecting more flavor, given Stoudts resume. Would drink on draft again, but probably wouldn't buy a sixer of it.

This is not the best but most certainly not the worst Red ale I've had. Very bitter aftertaste though that I wasn't expecting.

Dark reddish-copper color with a healthy head that is over a finger in height. The overwhelming flavor is an odd sweet note. The finish is slightly bitter.

Nice clear amber color with 1/2" creamy head and lingering lace. Creamy carbonation, not a ton of flavor, some hops at the finish. I could drink more.
