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.

Bottle. Dark amber in color with a thin tan head that lasts. Leaves a little lacing. Fruity and toasted marshmellow aroma. Flavor is earthy, nutty, caramel. Bitter finish from the hops, I don’t expect anything less from Stone. Thin and astringent mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but this is a good showing.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Malty, nutty aroma with a bit of cookie dough sweetness. Nice amber color with a frothy pinky size head. Pretty looking amber. Not asmurderously hopped as many of Stone’s beers. There is some subtetly here that makes me think they really tried hard on this beer. Malt and hop profile are very well balanced and this manages to almost be ont he sweet side just before the hops kick in and balance it out. Damn fine Amber Ale.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours a thick looking orange/brown body with a small off-white lace. Malty nose with some carmel and a little bread. Flavors are strong carmel malts with a little toffe and a grassy hop kick late in the finish. Very drinkable.

Ungstrup (30187) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2005
An unclear red-brown beer with a dying head. The aroma is sweet woody combined with some spices. The flavor is dry woody with lots of berries combined with some malt sweetness.

Pailhead (5555) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Foolish_Mortal in a trade. Malty aroma with caramel and cookie dough with a light citrus hops. Pours a very nice transparent amber with an off-white head that lasts a minute or so. Lightly sweet up front with a touch of caramel with a nice balanced hop finish. More piney hops in flavor as opposed to the citrus hop aroma. Reminds me a little of an EPA. Not a big amber fan but this is pretty good.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Stone "light"--that is, relative to the other Stone brews. There is, however, no lack of flavor in this beer when compared to many others. It is very drinkable with substantial malt and hops characteristics. Well-rounded beer, but lacks the customary alcohol kick we normally get from Stone.

Suttree (5474) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2005
This tastes like a toned down 8th Anniversary. There, I’ve said it. But that’s not a bad thing at all. Pours orangey copper, with a thin tan head. Spicy/sweet aroma. Toasty, smoky foavor, mingled with notes of earth and pine. Nicely full bodied. Very enjoyable. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

12 oz bottle thanks to darkelf. nice-looking beer, amber color with a slightly offwhite head. crystal clear. medium malty aroma, some hops show up as well--the aroma is kind of like a light version of an APA. pretty damn tasty beer. an APA with more malt and less hops, very good. this is arrogant bastard’s younger brother.

This is a darn good ass looking brew.It has a wonderful copper color with a ring of tan foam.It is like a baby Barleywine with some rich fruitymalty notes and some soft hops.Tastis nice and it has a little bitterness.The caramel taste is almost hidden by the hops.Nice but it smells better than it tastes.
