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.

Citrus & herbal hop nose. Light cotton candy malt. The most balanced beer I’ve had from Stone and I wish it wasn’t. With a healthy dose of cascades this could be as good as Ithaca Cascazilla.

Pours a somewhat pale amber color. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with a little bit of fruitiness and malt. Crisp hoppy malty flavor. Nice and well balanced. Has quite a bit of richness to the flavor. Malts and hops are very well balanced.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2005 "Smaller" than Stone’s other beers, but full of flavor. Cocoa and malt with a nicely balanced hop and resin taste. Dry and quiet, but surprisingly complex. Could drink these all night.

Bottle poured a nice red amber with a thick creamy head and heavy lacing. Flavor is a light hops and citrus. This is a very good easy drinking beer.

(Bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma of toffee, toasted malt, citrus, and marshmellow. Flavor of hops with some caramel malt.

Cloudy amber color with thin white head that dissipates quite quickly. Aroma is citrusy and piney, a touch of malt. Flavor is of caramel and malt, but well balanced by the hops. Aftertaste is quite malty as well, which lingers a bit. The bottle says 4.4% ABV but it feels stronger than that. Overall, a very quaffable brew. Another good one, if not over the top, from Stone.

bottled: hadnt seen this one around....but ofcourse have tried all the stone greats. knew this was somwhere out there and the ’weak’ one fo the bunch. nice toasted malt flavor with non dominant hops but enough to know they are perched on the back porch opening the back door...perfect for the amber classification as a somewhat vague statement. also reminded me of a british esb. wish this was on draft at our local pub instead of that fat tire crap. hope to see you again my friend.

I think its that ambers are very subtle and uninteresting beers and not so much the fact that this wasn’t that good. For an amber this was really nice, but i think it was still a bit of a let down. Aroma gives off tons of citrus hops, kinda getting your hops up. The flavor has a mild caramel malt presence up front finishing not nearly as hoppy as the aroma let on, but still very hoppy for an amber. Pours nice, darker copper, very clear, with a medium white head.

From the pour I would of thought the alcohol content would of been at least 6%. Usually a strong aroma of hops means a high alcohol content. Like it amber body with a good head and lacing. Little aftertaste but beer was easy on the palate. Picked this one from Papago Pub as I was about to leave for the night.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 10, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Hi Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Malty, caramely and lightly sweet initially, the fairly sharp hops bitterness asserts itself in typical Stone fashion and becomes the dominant flavor after the malt fades in the finish. The hops has a modest grapefruit flavor in the finish. Medium in body, but with an increased viscosity that fully coats the mouth. Sweet, caramely, hoppy and very aromatic nose smells like an American Strong Ale. Deep ruddy amber color, lightly hazy. Pours a nice, off-white head and eventually settles to a thin layer, leaving plenty of patchy, ringed lacing on the glass. With all the great beer styles Stone brews, this one is easy to overlook. Don’t!
