Stoudts Scarlet

What a beautiful summer weekend we have going in New England. It’s been sunny and in the 90s all weekend long. I was thinking it would be great to sit out on the patio, but all I had was an uncomfortable camping chair. Luck shined upon us, as our neighbors were throwing out a perfectly good set of patio chairs.

OK, “perfectly good” isn’t accurate. One of the chairs was golden, and another had a broken back-rest. Nothing a trip to Lowes for giant zip-ties couldn’t fix though! (see picture above) Just like new. You may now proceed to call me cheap.

As a reward for securing our patio setup, I’m typing this from said setup and enjoying a Stoudts Scarlet extra special bitter. This brew was a gift from my mom, making all the more tasty.

Contrary to the style name, the beer isn’t bitter at all. In fact, it’s mostly caramel sweet with a hint of citrus. It doesn’t have much in the way of carbonation, so it goes down smooth. It’s not an overly complex beer, but it sure is delicious!
