caesar (5293) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2008
Bottled. Clear copper color, big off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, some pine. Thin taste of caramel malt, bitter, slight citrus. Decent, mostly because of the low ABV. Good aroma, but thin taste.

Getting notebook online. Bottle. Piney nose. Flavors have a sweet malt entry that quickly gives way to the citrus overtones of the hops. I tasty and refreshing beer.

Poured from bottle an amber with small off-white head. Nose is nice with citrus and floral hops. Flavor is dry with pine, citrus, slight grapefruit, a touch of roast and a finishing carbonation tang. Palate is lightly malty with a good carbonation tang to it. Overall an enjoyable beer that is easy to drink and has some great flavors.

On tap at Flanagan’s Ale House. I’d never had this before, as it is not available in KY. But, it was still on after last Thursday’s Stone promo with Greg. Anyway, nice citrusy nose. Clear beautiful amber color. Medium bodied, with nice blanace of roasty malts and spicy hops. Immensely drinkable.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2008
An amazing beer for only 4.4 per cent ABV, it has color, flavor and appearance, probably one of the best and most flavorful under 5% beers. Pours a dark red amber with a brooding head, lacing abounds, flavors are hops, and caramalized malts, palate is thinner than other Stones, but stronger than some of the other beers available. Great picnic beer.

Nik925 (759) - USA - SEP 29, 2008
Good bitterness, bold malt flavor (esp for a 4.4 abv) notes of cherries come out between the malt and hops. A good hop flavor (what you expect from stone) but while the flavors are strong, they are a bit thin and unfinished. If the style Light Amber existed, this could be top of the pile, but its scored properly in the middle.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle. Poured a brown color with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and earth. Flavor is sweet malt with a good balance of hops for the style. Thin body with good carbonation.

drjay44 (2702) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2008
12 oz, bottle. Pours a nice happy rapidly collapsing head, pleasant brownish cloudy colors....nose of mild malts, bit of hops....palate is light, with some sensation of both malts and hops, rather light in character, but within that nicely balanced.

It’s a hit! Darker side of amber. Caramel pineapple tangerine style. Sweet hoppy. Chugarrifffic! Not complicated, just tasty. I want more for the everyday drinking..
