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.

Nothing like the other Stone brews I have had thus far. This is so mellow. It is not fair to compare it to the others though. This is truly a very tasty ale by any means. Mild carbonation, bit sweet malt flavor and a mildly hopped finish. So very drinkable, I could put alot of these back in a night (unlike the bastard ale).

Excellent hop aroma. Light and full at the same time (with the note that I believe this was Stone's attempt at making lighter fare, so it is MUCH different that the Arrogant style) Very enjoyable.

An amber colored beer, the head is mostly diminishing with an off-white head and a fair amount of lacing. I enjoyed this beer's interesting flavor - a mis of hops and sweetness, but I found the consistency too watery and not quite up to the Stone standards I've been used to. Drinkable, but I'll take the Double AB any day.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Not too happy when my girlfriend popped by with her lame attempt to satisfy my palate. However, I will say this type of Amber Ale was good.

Nice deep orange/amber in color. Pours with a gracious creamy head that quickly reduces to a frothy half inch. The smell is spicy and earthy along with sweetness and a hint of grapefruit rind. The flavor is sweet with a good balance of hops with the grapefruit rind flavor and moderate bitterness. I can detect a little bit of a chocolate favor as well. I like the mouthfeel and carbonation as compared to other ambers I have tried. Although I suppose this is more of a Pale Ale than an Amber Ale because of the IBU level. Its debatable and I will leave it up to the experts to make the classifications. I was a little disappointed when I first got home because I thought I was buying the Stone Ruination IPA. I got the names mixed up. Levitation was also on my list as is every Stone brew I havent yet tried. But I was not disappointed in any way with this beer. Ive been looking for a lower ABV brew like this to drink after a good long hike or ballgame. Or like Sheryl Crow would say:"the sun and the moon".

A sweet malt and low alcohol content combine for a pleasant amber ale that's perhaps less hopped than I had expected from Stone. The taste is of eating an evergreen and is better than it sounds. It's about half as piney as the mega-piney Alba Scotch Ale. Decent.

Dark bright amber color. Nose is big and citrusy with a light sweetish malt, almost vanilla aspect. The body is quite bitter and piney with a light fruitiness and not enough malt to balance things out sufficiently.

Light cherrywood colour. Chocolate, caramel and citrus aroma. Bitter, woody, earthy - simple American amber.

This is a great toned-down version of AB that I can drink all day and not get plowed. But, it's not AB. A great beer nonetheless.

Amber color with only a little head. Hint of grapefruit in the aroma. Definitely some hoppiness to this beer. Slight taste of grapefruit in the beer. Not too heavily malted. Stone Light? maybe in comparison to some of their others, but definitely a very good beer!
