|Stoudts Gold Lager
Smooth carbonation that flowed to the top of the glass throughout the
session reinforced the ample head of white that faded into a subtle ring.
Mid taste brings bready grains, with hints of light wheat and a mellow
hop profile. Clean and crisp, it finishes with a definite sweetness. A
decent session beer (5% ABC) that hints at what a non-adjunct macro
lager might taste like.
Overall rating: Above Average
|Troegs Nugget Nector
Labeled an Imperial Amber (7.3%) this beer is dominated by
citrus hops. First sip brings sweet oranges/tangerines, and a
squeeze of grapefruit. Moderate in body, with clean, crisp
notes throughout. The finish brings pine with faint hints of
caramel malt. Nicely balanced despite an ongoing hop nose
that simply never fades.
Overall Rating - Very good
Opens with very alive very hoppy citrus notes
in a noticeable grapefruit background.
Mid-taste reveals is a facade of malt with
leading to earthy grain and bread flavors.
The finish is dry withing a grapefruit
context. Overall nicely balanced with no
jarring notes. Another well make product
Overall ratting - good
