Stoudt’s Scarlet Lady ESB

$4.25, 12 oz bottle, Wild Wing Cafe, Marietta, GA, USA.

Love this beer. My favorite style, and this is a really nice American example form a super brewer.

Pour gives a lovely clear, rich brown color and an impressive head. Biscuit malts run across the palate making the whole experience a silky smooth, delightful experience. Plenty of body holds the beer together and as it warms it reminds me of a classic English Bitter from back home. Very mild hop presence lends a surprising complexity to this simple beer. Great stuff.

Off the chart drinkability for me, and a 5.00% it means I can enjoy quite a few – not exactly a session beer in my book, but a beer I can drink a few of with great pleasure. That’s the key word – PLEASURE.
