Starts with a nice creme colored head atop a deep golden-amber beer. Slightly yeasty aroma that could have been stronger. Tasted flat with some hops, had a watery feel to it and a bitter finish.

Pours a bronze color. Smell is of hops and citrus. Taste is more malty than the smell, some hops, well balanced. Overall a good quality beer.

Good beer. It didnít really strike me as a red ale. Flavorful, good hops, refreshing.

it pours a rich amber color. The hops are evident the second itís poured. At first, there is a high citrus note but that goes away as the hops kick in. It doesnít have the most bite of any beer Iíve had, but the bite is there for sure! Surprisingly low ABV at 4.4. Great color, great flavor, aggressive but not overwhelming bite, very good lacing.

Wonderful aroma and solid flavor that isnít too heavy-handed. Good session beer. Also, one of the best-looking bottles, in my opinion.

This beer pours a clear amber with a large, frothy head. It has a rich hops aroma and the it has a heavy alcohol aroma as well. Itís a bit more bitter than I was hoping and is very reminiscent of an IPA. It has a pretty light body. Itís not bad but I wish I didnít have to buy a six-pack to try it.

Great session beer, but more like an English best bitter, but with US hop character than an American Amber ale. Meh, definitions, itís still a tasty beer and great for a session.

Poured an amber color with a medium head. mild citrus hop aroma with heavy malt presence. When I first tasted this I couldnít believe it only had 4.4% alcohol. This is very well balanced and very flavorfull for that type of alcohol content. a mild hoppy flavor with a big rich malt flavor and some caramel notes. Thanks DarkElf!

deep copper amber color. Roasted malts with a sharp hoppy flavor with citrus. Lacking the middle tones flavors.

Caramel sweetness, sourdough and slight pineyness all come out to play on the nose of this one. Taste is very doughy bread and a pleasant bitterness that holds on throughout but it finishes very clean. Mouthfeel is near perfect for a session. Very good brew, awesome session brew. Thank you Stone. 2009 12 oz.
