Pretty much an easy going amber ale, with session-able level of alcohol. Rich amber color a bit of glowing red when held toward some back lighting, big tan creamy head forms. Thin speckled lacing left behind in my pint glass. Aroma has toasted malts, fresh cracked grain coming up with some herbal/mint/mild pine hops, very mild hop additions. Flavor is balanced kiss of herbal earthy hops, toasted malt with a bit of breadiness, really melds well and comes of being a super enjoyable brew. Nothing that rewrites the book on brewing, but it's damn well made from our friends on the other side of PA in Adamstown, even flowing carbonation light and palatable. Go for this beer while it's out there, I really enjoyed it.

Style: American Amber / Red Ale
ABV: 4.80 %

Pours a clear medium brown color, with an off white head and some lace on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, bready yeast and burnt caramel. In the flavor, toasted malts, nutty, mildly smoky roasted profile, with all due caramel sweetness and a faint citrusy hop flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, well carbonated, and easily drinkable. Overall, this is a pretty nice Amber Ale, and a worthy anniversary beer. Pretty solid.

I had this at McGuillen's Ale house this past weekend. The is smooth and very drinkable with a floral after taste. A perfect summer beer. The kolsh yeast brings out the flavor in this beer. It went perfect with the mussels I was eating. A very good session brew.

Bottle gifted to me by yourefragile. I like the kolsch, I'm definitely interested in this beer. Beer is amber and clear with a nice white head, some lacing, decent retention.

Aroma is odd, it smells like a kolsch and an amber mixed.

Beer is medium to light in body, the kolsch character is lost in the palate mildly. The finish is mildly bitter but not too strong, the lead off is a malt. I like it, it is interesting but not great.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic. Description from Stoudts... "light bodied, refreshing brew uses a small amount of caramel malt to give it a nice amber color with a hint of sweetness. Lower hopping rates and a smooth dry finish make this the perfect session beer to help you celebrate 25 years of Stoudt’s beers". 6 pack holder also indicates their Karnival Kolsch yeast is used.

Pours a perfectly clear, light amber with a dense, large frothy khaki head. Head has good retention, light carbonation and ample rings of dry lace. Very mild aroma, caramel malt forward, light biscuit, and finish of light earth and grass. Flavor is similar to nose, starts mildly sweet and caramely with some fruity esters from the yeast, before a drier, earthy finish. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Medium thick, creamy body with active carbonation. Not the most exciting beer, but no obvious flaws and I like that they made a nice sessionable beer for their anniversary to complement the barrel aged 5025.
