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.

Pours a clear dark copper with a ruby tint, a large light beige head, and very good lacing. Smell of light grapefruit, pine cone, fresh cut grass, and a touch of caramel. Taste is creamy, oats, malt, caramel, some spice, and a touch of citrus, ends on the dry side.

ciocanelu (243) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 25, 2015
Amber color with off-white head. Smells mostly like some herbal hops with a slight malty undertone. Taste starts with some caramel and continues with the same herbal hops note from the aroma. Quite bitter up-front and gets intensely bitter to the finish and follows in the aftertaste. Body is quite light and well carbonated. Overall this is a really aggressive amber ale with a lot of bitterness.

kevinator (1477) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Good hop aroma. Amber color with a solid head. Medium to light body. Hoppy amber with the right touch of malt to avoid being thrown into the vast sea of Stone IPA’s.

I wanted to like it, as I do most of Stone’s beer, but I could not get over the lack of alcohol content that doesn’t help the taste.

Ratpatrol1019 (70) - Palm desert, California, USA - JUN 9, 2015
One of best ambers out there...heard they were dumping this too. Amber and light malts in aroma, some red wine grapes and biscuit malts. Finishes pretty clean with the residual sweetness from the amber malts.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Light brown to umber in color. Small, but stable canvas colored head. Mild herbal hops atop a floe of caramel. Fairly light and airy in feel. Lightly sweet and slightly toasty. Just a bit of herbal and citric hops balance. Big return of caramel in the finish and linger. Nice flavorful session brew. 2/10
