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.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Dark orange/amber color. Medium white head, nice lacing. Very pleasant hoppy aroma, medium bodied flavor with hints of caramel. Medium to high bitterness, with a nice hoppy finish.

Pours a clear dark orange color with a decent-sized head. Smells of caramel and maybe some butterscotch, tastes like hops, citrus, hops, caramel, and some hoppity hops. Finishes dry and leaves a pretty bitter taste in my mouth - not something I could drink all night.

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - MAY 29, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Deep amber body with a moderate to large head with decent lacing. Aroma is like a lighter version of ABA with the exception that it has the Amber Ale characteristics. Hoppy with citrus and caramel, some grapefruit. Pretty easy to tell that this is a Stone brew. Fairly typical amber ale with the stone house character that I don’t like.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Fairly large frothy light-brown head. Clear red-orange color. Nose is a little C-hoppy and a little caramelly. Hops are most noticable to me though, but there is light brown sugar too. Tastes like a blend of a pale ale and brown or maybe amber ale. There is the light and smooth hop presence of a pale ale, and the light malt of a amber ale.

Mumpu (46) - USA - MAY 15, 2006
Honey with very fleeting tan head. Some hoppy aroma. Opens completely bland and with a thin watery body. Not much happens with flavors and in the end there is a rather unrewarding and not particularly interesting strong bitter aftertaste. Stone Brewing can do much much better.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2006
Amber body with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and caramel malts. Medium bodied with a drier hoppy finish. Much lighter than most of the other Stone beers.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Bottled. I love Stone, their beers rock. This is probably my least favorite. It’s far better than the avg beer, but not the best of Stone. It’s amberish color, and very light flavored compared to the others. A little creamy textured. Good, and drinkable.

IrishBoy (3853) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Ruby-amber color with a small beige head, citrus and malt aroma. Caramel and hoppy bitterness in the flavor.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2006
Deep copper color with a nice off white head. Light malt aroma. Interesting malt flavor. Not as hopped up like most Stone beers. Medium body. I like this beer.

Tyler*Durden (72) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2006
A copper colour beer with a generous head when poured, though dissipates rather quickly. Has aroma of hops and sweet caramels. Flavour also has caramels along with roasted malts and has a nice bitter finish. A very nice ambe...so far Stone Brewing has not disappointed me!
