COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2008
Pours a nice copper with 2 fingers of white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Flavors of malt, and quite a bit of hops and hop bitterness. Lots of hop flavor and a lower alcohol content make this a good lawnmower or session beer. Nicely done Stone.

ilovedarkbeer (2228) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Bottle courtesy of BMan113VR. Pours a nice red color with a medium sized off white head. Nose is hoppy, a bit fruity and dry. Taste is hoppy malty, dry and has notes of fruityness. I almost wonder if this beer is made from the second running of Stone IPA as I notice many of the same characteristics. Very nice lacing on this one.

marcus (6343) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 21, 2008
This amber ale poured with a decent beige head and a yeasty aroma. The flavor is roasted malt and floral hop, with a nice bitter bite at the finish.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2008
A decent brew from Stone, but one of their less exciting. If you want overpowering hops this isn’t your beer. That being said, I do think it is a nice amber ale. Nice malty flavors and a little bit of citrus hops. Nice balance.

LinusStick (2817) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Via trade with stefanje. I owe you a few! Aroma was so so. Light caramel malt with some stale hops in and out. Pour was nice enough. A deep amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was average. Earthy and grassy hops throughout with just a hint of old musty malt in the background. Medium carbonation and thin mouthfeel. This isn’t that bad, but not as good as some other ambers out there.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Bottle in Breckenridge. Rather dark amber color with a tan head and moderate lacing. Big hops in the aroma. Flavor was citrus hops with hints of pink grapefruit. A little malt in the background. Just a little thin, flatness in the finish. Good amber.

bigbish (511) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2008
This was a great ale, with nice malt tones and big hops in the aroma and flavor. It wasn’t too bitter, but pretty well balanced. A decent brew.

uhclem (360) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Beautiful amber pour with a mocha head and respectable lacing. Citrus hop aroma with a faint undertone of vanilla. Taste was nice but a little too understated for me. Substantial mouthfeel. Aftertaste was a fairly good balance of malt and hops, but a little on the brassy side.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours copper-red with a two-finger white head. Spicy, resinous hop aroma. The flavor tends towards balance: all the maltiness of an amber coupled with the lovely citric hop of Stone. Reminds me of North Coast’s Red Seal. Awesome beer, aggressively American, yet refined.

nolankowal (923) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Draft. Amber pour with an off white yellowed head. Aroma of citrus, toasted malt, light caramel and pine. Flavors of toasted malt, citrus, caramel, pine, and light floral notes. Medium/light body, bitter/malty with a lingering bitter finish. Nice brew!
