3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is toffee, red berry, with light pine and citrus. Taste is pine, malt, red berry, slight rye then floral and peppery tones touch of lemon grass and salt in the finish. It’s more ESB than I finished, and the nose and taste don’t marry well for me. It’s OK

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a really nice malty taste to it. Almost an iced tea flavor. Easy to drink, and very little hops. Bready, bright, crisp without being boring. Very nice Amber ale, When you want malt go here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle a surprisingly colorful pale copper, lots of orange hues with bright golds and rosy reds. Aroma is citrusy and piney, a touch of malt. Flavour is of caramel and malt, but well balanced by the hops. Aftertaste is quite malty as well, which lingers a bit. Overall a decent amber, however not that memorable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Another winner from Stone. They should brew more lower gravity stuff because they are so good at it. Deep amber in color. Medium head. Aroma is really well balanced as is the flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear deep amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves very good lacing. Toffee malt provides a base for floral, pine and leafy hops notes, which make for a very pleasant aroma. Lemon and floral hops and almost tonic water flavour up front lead into rich toffee and rye bread malt in the mid-palate. Rye bread persists into the finish, where it is joined by pine hops. A very well-balanced and flavoursome amber ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This liquid poured a dark red-amber with a light, soapy, white head. The aroma is dusty, peppery, rye with no body. Small amounts of lacing on the glass, and very sticky. The palate is thin as well, no body and the taste is bitter, unpleasant and a little salty. I’m am really disappointed in this offering from Stone; it is only disagreeable with no redeeming qualities at all.
