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: MAY 27, 2008 Re rating this beer after a few years of acquiring a palate. Stone’s most "run of the mill" beer, but not average by any means. Great malt and hop combinations create a great Amber Ale.

Bottle courtesy of maniac. Copper body with a small tan head. Nose is malty and semi-sweet with nice caramel notes, piney hops, light cocoa, and citrus. Taste is hoppy and sweet with light toffee, caramel, sweet malts and citrus fruits. Light pine notes come through often as well. Body is light, but not weak, with medium carbonation. Finishes witth more pleasant hop bitterness, pine caramel, creamy malts and light toffee. Nice beer!

12 oz bottle, via FlacoAlto. Pours a bright clear copper with a finger sized off-white head. Good lacing left behind. Aroma is full of toasted and biscuity malts, lightly fruity and sweet. Background aroma of citric hops. Very clean malty flavor, fruity and sweet as promised by the aroma. For once a Stone beer that restrains the hops to just a lightly bitter role in the finish. Medium bodied with a great creamy mouthfeel cut thru by fine bubbled carbonation. This is as good as it gets on the palate for an Amber. Overall, this is all you could hope for from an Amber. I love the mouthfeel on this. Just rolling this around in my mouth is great, very soft. This also shows a little bit of versitility from Stone.

"Stones does beer well. Poured a light red color with nice head, some good lacing. Aroma was not impressive little pine. Flavor was of citrus and pine. Needed a little bit more flavor, mabye malts. Mouthfeel was thin."

another amber ale courtesy of Saarlander, thanks Aaron. Same appearance as the SA Boston Ale, aroma was similiar as well. the difference came in this one being more well rounded in the flavor profile as compared to the SA being more front loaded in flavor. a pleasant easy drinking beer.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pour is warm ruby amber with a nice dense tan head...smell is sweet with lots of malty notes but the big suspect here are hops, with citrus and pine being dominant...taste is subtley malty and first but lots of hop bitterness coming out in the finish...good overall...

12 oz. bottle courtesy jerc. Red amber colour with a fully lasting creamy and frothy tan head. Caramel, brown sugar, toffee, fruity, and lightly piny aroma. Caramel and lightly toasty malts with a fruity and leafy bitter finish and slight acidity. Medium bodied and smooth. Thanks Jer.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 Draft - Nice aroma of citrus and hops. This is a fairly mild, easy to drink brew, but still has a hoppy punch characteristic of Stone brewery. It’s not their best effort, but still enjoyable.

Bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>JohnC, thanks John. Beautiful copper in colour, off-white head, nice retention, nice lace. The aroma was of caramel malts, biscuits, some citrus hops as well. The flavour starts off earthy with some caramel, nice citrus hops take hold, some pepper. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes with a lingering light bitterness, dry.

A bit sweeter, and maltier, but from first sip you can tell its a Stone brew, citrus and hops dominate, but I like this one for the mild alcohol, its a great regular drinker!
