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.

Aroma: to the point. HOPS! I likened it to a Ruination without the alcohol content, basically a pared-down version of the aforementioned. A great beer for washing down particularly salty, accessible foods, say, gourmet onion rings or nachos.

Good, normal ale, good smell and taste of citrus hops, lots of malt, overly sharp though. I wouldn’t want more than one or two due to the sharp, bitter aftertaste.

This is my favorite lighter beer. While definitely not as tasty and refined as other beers of a darker variety, it does its job well. Great when paired with a good pepperonni pizza or some irish nachos. Yum!

Bottle form Secret Santa. Clear amber body with a creamy, beige head, lasting, some lace. The aroma is caramel, tea and lots of citrus hops. The flavor is grapefruit, tea, toffee and fairly dry. Medium/light body is a bit thin with moderate carbonation. Decent session ale, could do without all that crystal malt though.

Medium Amber color, malty aroma. Kinda light on the flavor (which is pretty malty), but a cold one is great on a hot day.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear orange-copper color. Head was thick and off white with good retention and lacing. Malt-dominated light caramel aroma with a hint of resiny hops. Dry on the tongue with caramel and citrusy hops flavors. There is also a nutty note. Mild hop bitterness came out at the end and blended well with the lingering malty finish. Better than average for an amber.

Thanks to ogglethorp for the trade. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a mediium bubbly/foamy off white head that left lacing. Aroma of pine, mixed citrus, some caramel, Flavor was fruity up front, with mixed citrus, toasted and caramel malts, some lingering roasted notes. A nice balance of hops and malts...very light hop bite in the tail.

Amber color pour. Malt aroma dominates with pine/resin and some citrus underlying. Taste of big grassy, piney hops with a bit of the citrus and toned malt aspects. Pretty good overall.

A good beer all around. A nice heavy head with a body to compliment. Not a strong a aroma, but rather faint. It falls a little short. Great flavor.

The lightest and most drinkable stone brew. I would assume that most women would prefer this beer over alot of the other stone brews. I actually don’t know any chicks who like stone brew. I am a dude so I have no say, but, if i would recommend this beer on a hot day, or for a kegger. i dont taste pine or caramel, i just taste a lighter, less hoppie beer.
