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.

Looks exactly like tea with its dark brown/ruby red. Bubbly head that laces the glass and lingers at the bottom after finishing. Definitly has the Stone signature of hops, but toned down compared to their others. Flavorful and has alow alcohol content making it a good beer after work.

I wasn’t too impressed with this brew. It had a light hoppy aroma, a little sweet also, with a creamy head. Taste was bitter sweet, and wasn’t too bad, but not great.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
With a name like this, I’d expected a lighter-than-air quality, a wheat beer or a kolsch. But I must have forgotten that I was deaing with stone, who will dash any expectation. Pours a dark, rustic brown, more a light crimson around the foot and sides. Head is thick, fluffy, creamy. Aroma: sweet and malty at the fore,deep, spicy, rich, a little vinous, with a good batch of hops. Taste is the very peg of a red ale, or an Irish, done right. Greets the tongue mildly, though loaded with flavor. Lacks thee extremeness of the big Stone brews, and is quite accessible, not so scary at all. Medium body, nice, malty, toasty finish, very pleasant and tasty overall. If this were available in this market, Levitation would have a regular spot reserved in my fridge.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Mild aroma. Good head, copper color. Taste is solid and hoppy, quite well balanced. A little too bitter for the style, but still a very good beer.

This is the beer that I return to after quaffing the heavy hopped brews. It is an excellent daily brew.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
This beer really packs a lot of flavor. Lots of malt, lots of bitterness. Not very balanced though. It has the alcohol level of a session beer but two at a time would be my absolute limit. A nice change up for the fridge, but by no means a top-tier beer in my book.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2004
This was not overly impressive. The appearance is a clear amber orange color with a dark garnet center, and a little white head. The aroma is flowery and acidic. This flavor is just unbalanced and not to my liking with a strong mineral water presence.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2004
12 oz bottle, tulip. Cookie and caramel malt (M); flowers and citrus hops (M); red grapes aroma. Average sized, creamy, off-white, lasting head leaves good lacing and sits on a clear, amber-red body. Lightly sweet, moderately acidic, mineraly flavor becomes a moderately acidic, lightly bitter, mineraly finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic tinge. The bottom line is: mineral presence is way too strong for my liking.

egajdzis (5545) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2004
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.
