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.

12 oz bottle via Saarlander (thanks!). Pours a hazy dark amber with a slightly above average size beige head. Nose is all hops, and both citrusy and spicey, almost seems like a a combination of English and citrusy American hops. Tastes the same with a little bit of roastiness and some vegtables (DMS?). THis is weird but i think it sort of tastes like a watered down Arrogant Bastard! Almost as if you took AB and cut it with half water and added a gallon of DMS, lol. Thin body, high carbonation. Don’t really care for this one, and i think it is a combination of the DMS/vegtable flavors and watery body...

12 oz. bottle courtesy WeeHeavySD. Clear amber pur, 2 finger off white head that subsides to a thin layer in a couple of minutes. LIght citrus hops and toffee aroma. Medium body, dry mouthfeel. Burnt caramel flavor followed by a spicy bitterness and a dry finish. Pretty nice amber.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 Deep amber beer with a very thick, pillowy tan head. Sweet malty aroma, caramel, toffee and sweet citrusy hops over the top. The flavour is quite good. Light caramel and a reasonable hop flavour. Earthy malts. Body is quite light, but there is some resiny bitterness on the back that I quite enjoy. I’d like to see more of this in New York.

Thanks to Saarlander for this one via Mystery Swap 2.0. This is a beer that has evaded me for quite some time now. The pour is lovely deep ruby coppery with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, some tropical fruit, some brown sugar. Tastes caramel malty, brown sugary, hoppy, with a fresh hit of mid-palate zesty citrus. Complex in aroma and flavor, I’d love to get a case of this.

anders37 (16702) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2007
Draught @ Stone World Bistro. Pours a dark amber color with a small white head. Malty hoppy aroma with some hints of pine needles. Malty hoppy flavor. Sweet malty hoppy finish with a long bitter aftertaste.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 7, 2007
In the bottle from Wilbur’s. Pours a flocculent amber with a yellow-white thick and residual head. Aroma is as strong a freshly cut grass as any beer I’ve seen. Hoppy pine flavor stronger than many IPA’s. Not very sweet, but the body does not seem to suffer from this lack of sweetness. Mid palate salty fizziness, but it corrects itself to a smooth mellow finish rapidly. Then the hop bitterness hangs around on the tongue for awhile. Great walls of lacing remain behind. Not bad at all.

Not great, not bad.. very forgettable. Goes down easy and is refreshing, but there’s nothing about the taste of this beer that will stick in my head days from now.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a 2 finger chunky white head. The aroma is lightly hoppy and a little bland. The taste is mild slightly malty with a hoppy bite. As this is stone’s psuedo take on a light beer its decent and drinkable but no bells and whistles for this one.
