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.

This may be one of the best "lighter" beers i’ve had. The ability for this to be this good and this drinkable is great. The people at Stone really knocked this out of the park. Sure the IPA and Ruination are tastier and stronger but this could be the best go to beer ever. The drinkability of this is unreal. I cant imagine it being too hot for this beer.

Stone makes some incredible brews, but I am beginning to think Amber Ale might be one of the most challenging types to make really well. This poured a dark amber with a fat, slightly off-white head that left sticky-looking lacing in rings around the glasss. Nose of malts, hops, citrus, flowers, and something else I cannot quite get to. The hops dominate and so you have to look for everything else. Mouthfeel is very smooth and better than most ambers. Flavor is of malts, caramels, and of course hops. Finishes smooth . At only 4.4 % you could knock back a few of these in an evening, and enjoy every bottle. Interesting and well done.

From a 12 oz. bottle with a blurb on the back, no freshness date, served in a Stone Levitation glass. Poured a clear reddish amber with a fluffy, foamy off-white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, some laced sticking. Hoppy aromas of citrus, floral and leafy, with a nice toasted grainy. Even, steady carbonation and a crisp, dryish, slick, creamy smooth medium-full bodied mouthfeel. Very enjoyable taste, butter caramel and toasted grains, light roasted malts, a subtle fruitiness, citrus, pine, earthy leafiness, a nice soft hop bitterness that lingers a bit in the palate, and a dry grainy, malty, hoppy finish. Easy, smooth drinkability, a pleasantly tasty amber from Stone.

12oz bottle via trade with footbalm! - Thanks Eric! - Pours cloudy amber with a short white head. Aromas is light grassy and citrus hops over caramel malts. Flavor is a good balance of citrus hops and caramel malts. Crisp and clean palate with a good bitter finish. Nice beer.. This could easily be a daily drinker if it were available here in Ohio..

Not sure how this rating slipped under my radar for so long, but I gotta say, this is definitely one of my go-to ales when I need to be in it for the long haul. Crisp, clean, inviting and satisfying. Easy to drink lots of, for many hours and still keep my noggin on my shoulders. Great beer.

A 12 oz bottle with no freshness date or made on date. The beer pours a dark copper color with a small light brown head. A smell of wicked strong hops and not much else. The taste is pretty good but lacking somthing. Good carbonation and a nice beer.

Draft. Pretty good example of the style. Some nice hop and citrus taste. Pretty good, but nothing great at all.

This was a definite surprise. The beer is darker than expected, and the juicy hop aroma that greeted my nose was totally unexpected for a beer coming in a 4.4%. Brown, slightly hazed. Candied hop flavor, not a lot of malt involved, but doesn’t have an unbalanced bitterness.

pretty good amber ale has a sweet slight hop aroma, fair taste of a mild hop/ citrus taste, god body.

Amazing, a stone beer without much alcohol!! The is pretty decent. The head is not very taste, but, of course, it’s pretty hoppy, like all stone beers. The malts come forward at the finish, which is kind of odd. Good though.
