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: APR 11, 2005 Brilliant red and amber color with a small off white head and some lacing on the glass. Nicely hopped aroma with soft, sweet malts in the background. Roasted coffee, caramel malts, touch of hops in the taste. Average mouthfeel.

3fourths (8377) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Nice red hue with a generous head. Thick, hoppy texture, which I would consider an APA certainly. Fresh and pleasant malty body... robust, a little plum, medium hoppiness, sweet nose, very good stuff that I can drink all night.

A dark reddish amber pour that produced a tan head that was both big and thick. Smooth at first, then the hoppy bite comes through. A light medium body. It wasn’t anything special but it wasn’t bad either.

Reddish amber color, lacing. Starts out somewhat caramel tasting then goes to hoppy in seconds, not overpowering though. Fresh and summery with some orange rind. Yum.

a bold rich amber ale that is very malty and pretty hoppy too. dark red color, taste is kind of sweet but mostly rich and malty. this is a really good amber, but its not as good as the regular pale ale. not what im used to from stone, but its definately a good brew. pleasing to drink, and it makes me wish i could buy this locally- this would actually work for our stupid abv laws.

PorterPounder (5871) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Faint citrus and light spruce aroma, clumpy but thin white head on a dark orange pour, decent lacing. Sweet citrusy flavor with a hoppy back end assault. Has some sweet nutty notes and a bit of caramel as well. Chewy mouthfeel. Tamest Stone I’ve had to date - would be a good standby beer for the fridge if only they sold it here in Florida.

Nice clear amber color with large off white head and active carbonation. It has a big malth aroma with sweet carmel and a roasted feel. The taste is quite malty early with a citrus hop taste that comes later and sticks around. Also present are roasted malts and a nice sweetness. Nicely ballanced with a lasting hop bitterness. Thanks to mardermax for this.

Not a bad ale. It tastes like the other Stone Ales (like the Pale Ale, the IPA and Arrogant Bastard), but with a little citrus.

This is a tremendous Amber Ale. Stone brews are freaking awesome!!! Good hoppy flavor, Citrusy, definitely rich and a mouthful in every sip. There is nothing about this beer that makes it Modest. Might only be 4.4% but that doesn’t make it modest. Great Beer. I’m sure the rest of you already know this. Great bottle too. Might be the best one in my collection. Etched beer bottles are very cool.

Clear dark reddish copper, fluffy beige head. Lots of chocolate, brown sugar, and a slight hint of the famous Stone hops in the nose. Dark fruit, chocolate, caramel, with again a hint of those citrus hops to balance out the flavors. Light bodied, creamy, soft carbonation, dry finish. If ever there was a session beer in the Stone lineup, this one is it.
