3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
this beer poured a nice deep amber with a small white head. aroma is of hops, mostly grassy and citrusy. for as low alcohol as it is this is a big beer. the flavor is definaly dominated by hops, but not by much. the roasted nutty malt flavor is definatly present. not my favorite stone beer, but a nice change of pace.

Tap. Pours a very clear dark amber, nice thin white head with very good lacing and retention. Very strong hop aroma with a light malt sweetness. Bitterness and aromas transfer to the tongue but stronger than on the nose, still mild but higher sweetness from the malt. Medium carbonation medium-thin body.

A decent stone beer. brown in color, nice and bitter for an amber. Not a spectacular stone product but really good.

Releases a caramel malty sweetness with a touch of piney hops. A nice tan head forms with a creatory head possessing medium sized bubbles. A nice light mahogany colored body. Wow what an amber. A lot of the ambers Iíve had have no balls. This has a stern smokey sweet maltiness with a nice hop backbone. Once again, Stone does not disipoint!

Malty, hoppy aroma. Darker brown color with little tan head. Sweeter taste. Roasty with a very nice hoppy finish. Very hoppy but still not overbearing. Iím a big fan of this beer.

Smells of yeast maybe a bit spicy. Pours dark caramel brown with a thick tan head. Tastes malty....some light caramel characteristics. Tingly on the tongue.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2005 "Smaller" than Stoneís other beers, but full of flavor. Cocoa and malt with a nicely balanced hop and resin taste. Dry and quiet, but surprisingly complex. Could drink these all night.

Bottle. Citrus hops is my overriding memory of this beer - not ragingly hoppy though. Light and flavourful. Nothing inspiring came to mind while drinking, but it was a good refreshing beer to start the evening with.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Pours amber brown with a caramel head. Very strong citrus and pine aroma. This mellows and there is some malt in the taste, then as it warms the hops come back. Similar to a Summer Wine beer which eludes me at the time or writting, possibly Rogue.

Bottle from Steinís Deli in New Orleans. Deep amber with fluffy head and delicate lacing. Aroma is a sweet hoppiness. It starts sweet with light hop follow through and a slight bitter finish. Tastes like it has more alcohol than it does. Reminds me a little of a tame IPA.
