COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To craft a remarkable Pale Ale, you must begin with the finest ingredients. Stone Mill Pale Ale is made with 100% organic barley malt, certified by the USDA for a classic taste that is the perfect balance of maltiness and hop bouqet. For more info see www.drinkstonemill.com.

Indra (2641) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 21, 2006
12oz. bottle. Faint aroma of citric hop and a minimal toasty malt presence. Clear dark copper color with a fine, lasting head. Flavor is lightly bitter and again citric throughout with touches of grapefruit and a lightly sugary, caramel malt character in the background. More hop than anticipated, this still leaving the overall level hop profile as relatively low for the style. Palate is amply carbonated and accompanied by a light-medium body. Not terrible.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Bottle from JGD0608. Pours a darker copper with a white head. Smells malty with minimal earthy hop presence. Tastes metallic with peppery hops. Unbalanced and bland even for an American pale ale, but better than the Wild Hop.

pintocb (645) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Coppery color. Some hoppy aroma. Caramel and a little estery flavor with a light hoppy finish. Easy to drink. Not bad.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Darkish tea pour with good white head and lots of carbonation. Dry mouthfeel with a good hop level. This is a good one!

waolsen (1360) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2006
bottle. copper pour with rising bubbles. thin head. fresh aroma of floral hops and malt. lively on the palate but not much going on with the flavor. pretty thin. pretty descent burnt malts. earthy hops with very lite bitter finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle dated 30Aug06. Amber side of copper with a loose, fake looking ivory head. Fruity aroma with some melon notes. Still no hops though. Sweet and fruity. More melon notes with some peaches as well. Probably the best AB product I’ve tried but still falls short of what most craft brewers are doing with APAs. There’s only a slight bitterness and this beer coujld use a bit more to go with the fruity flavors...I KNOW these guys are better brewers than this!

nick76 (4253) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2006
The aroma has citrus hops and caramel malt. The appearance is red/gold with a small head. The flavor is bitter with sweet, lightly toasted malt. The palate is thin and the aftertaste has citrus. This is about as good a beer as I have had from AB.

Aveage APA. I’m not sorry I bought and will buy it again. I like the fact A-B is behind this. Maybe they’ll see what good will come of this and start getting behind other better tasting beers. Then it won’t be such a pain in the ass to try to find a descent beer in good ol’ St. Auggie. When it comes to ales around here, this town sucks! Did I tell you how the A1A Ale House has had it’s kettles "closed for cleaning" all summer long and now into the fall? All they have there on draught is A-B. My Gawd!

Poured orange with an off white head. No hop aroma. Nice clean finish. A decent pale ale.
