A Super Special Pale Ale. Amber-ish/dark orange color, quite hoppy with a fruity aroma and upfront flavor. There is a hop-bitterness sting on the tongue at first with noticeable malt reminiscent of a sweet pastry, more fruity hop flavors linger and blend into a toasty-malty balance that comes through in the finish. This full bodied ale is placed nicely on the high side of the scale.

From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours hazy orange with a creamy and slight orange coloured head. Dense hoppy and caramel smooth aroma. Light breadish in the inital flavour with a dense hoppy presence. Caramel and mild hoppy finish as the caramel slowly takes over.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2005
[Sampled 1 and 1Ĺ years old] An amber beer with a disappearing, but lacing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with alcohol being most dominant, but also lesser notes of fruit - especially peach - and wood. The flavor contains notes of anise, wood, fruit - just on the edge of being over ripe, as well as cinnamon. And in the background the alcohol gives you warmth and it ends up giving a slight burn.

omhper (23483) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2003
Bottled. Reddish brown. Nutty, grapefruity hop aroma. Aromatic and softly malty. Soem cookie malt. Long, rather clean and very aromatic finish with a lot of bitterness. A typically rude and straight forward Stone ale.

madmitch76 (22102) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
9th September 2009. Cloudy brown beer. Smooth and soft to start rapidly followed by some aggressive hops. Finishes with a sweet undertone revelaing itself - caramelly port. Better when not to cold from the fridge.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
A: The pour is a hazy burnt orange color with a thin white head which dissipates very quickly. S: The nose is sweet and caramelly with stale hop aromas (primarily oranges) and a touch of toffee. T: Despite the near death of the hops in this beer, it is still quite nice. The sweet and bready malt is the main attraction with some toasted biscuit flavors coming into play. There isnít much bitterness to speak of, but this isnít much of a surprise. M: The body is medium with a somewhat light carbonation. D: Despite the disappearance of any real hop character, this beer has not turned into a sweet mess. While I wish I could have tried it fresh, itís still a decent beer.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Orangey-amber colour. Chewy smelling - very Stone - with too much crystal/dark malt character. Woody, toasty, citrus-hoppy palate with caramel and a slight bit of alcohol.

Ratman197 (13278) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bomber @ Falling Rock vintage beer sale poured a hazy copper with a disapating amber head. Aromas of light oxidation, light fruitiness and a hint of carmel. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light oxidation, carmel, vanilla and a hint of apple with a dry lightly bitter finish.

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Lightly hazed body with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, very hoppy (floral & citric). Taste is medium sweet, quite hoppy (floral/grapefruit/herbal), but toffee/caramel maltiness balances it nicely. Full body, some resin. Seems IPA more than APA, but perhaps I quibble -- the bottom line is another delicious beer.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2004
Golden ale with a nice white head. Hops kisses the malt in the nose. Sweet malt with resinous hops, very intense, with lots of big chunks of citrus and grapefruit. Well balanced beer with a good body.

(Bottle) Pours an amber-brown with an average-sized off-white head. Unexpected aroma of chocolate after-dinner mints and mustiness. Flavor of dried fruit, corriander, candy, sweet malt, and mild hops. A little thin, but punched full of flavor. Thanks for sharing Nuffield!
