Wow! This IS the best session beer. If there is one beer I could drink for the rest of my life STOUDTS GOLD would be it. Simply a great refreshing beer with an unparallel taste. Picked it up in Pittsburgh and can't wait to grab some more next time I'm back.

It certainly is gold! Poured from 12oz bottle into a 12oz mug. Beautiful color, appropriate head and some lacing.

Bread, biscuit malts dominate the smell, hops are definitely there but the yummy malts stand out to me.

Malt flavors are right there as the smells indicated, and the hops comes along for a nicely integrated ride. A pleasant sweetness on the finish, makes me thirsty for another sip.

Simple flavors combined with minor carbonation make for a decent mouthfeel. Nothing crazy here, but quite good for the style.

Drinkability? The ultimate. If these weren't $9/sixpack near me I'd drink them all spring summer and fall! I really have to make a trip out to PA to visit these guys.
