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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

What’s this? An amber I could actually give a crap about? Say it ain’t so!

Pours a deep amber color with a creamy tan head that melts away slowly leaving some drippy lacing. Aroma of roasted nutty malt, pine hops, and citrus. Flavor is similar, with not overly sweet malt and a nice hoppy bite. A bit thin on the palate, but the prickly carbonation helps make up for that. Seriously not bad at all, which is a bit of a surprise for me in this category.

Red brown clear pour with a thin white head. Fruity hop aroma. Malty flavor with a strong citrus hop character. Slight sweet with a bitter hop finish.

dlovell2 (881) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Amber color with white head. Pine aroma. Very dry beer. Hops taste of pine but flavor does not linger in after taste. This beer was ok.

Alefest sample. Aroma is decent with plenty of pine and citrus hops but this was lacking on flavor. Feels watery and with low carbonation. Decent but disappointing.

Poured a golden color with a thick white head. The aroma was hoppy with hints of pine and grass. Everything was awesome about this beer until it went in my mouth. It tasted very flat and watered down. It was almost trying to be an IPA, but couldn’t pull it off.
