3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice looking reddish hue with a beige head that lingers. Aroma of hops and resin. Right up front in the flavor are the hops. The body has a nice caramel sweetness to it to balance out the spicyness. Well carbonated and a very dry finish that leaves a piney flavor aftertaste. Pretty good amber, this has a lot of what I like in a good amber.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
All the Stone trademarks are visible here: bold, robust flavour, hefty malt backbone, semi-syrupy sweetness. All in all a balanced Amber that fits my autumn mood. Colour was mahogany red with some golden hue thrown in for good measure. Nose was caramel, apricot, hoppy, and woodsy. The finish was long-lasting an left a good impression, Amber ales being not one of my most cherished drinks, this one left me feeling pretty good. On tap at THRASH ZONE, Yokohama!

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.
