COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark golden brew with a thin antique white head, lots of roasted malt in the bouquet, very hoppy flavor, fairly dry, quickly dissipating malt on the finish

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.

I wasn’t too impressed with this brew. It had a light hoppy aroma, a little sweet also, with a creamy head. Taste was bitter sweet, and wasn’t too bad, but not great.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber, with medium white head. Nice aroma of hops. This hoppiness (Cascade?) also dominates the flavor - pine and citrus, interplaying nicely with subtle caramel malts. Surprisingly rich body and flavor for a low-ABV amber - quite impressive.

Hoppy aromas, citrusy, caramel and malts there too. Medium head, leaves a nice lacing. Taste of hops and malt, palate is fullish. Overall pretty nice, I’d have another :) Prefer this to the stone pale ale.

Excelente american amber/red ale dos californianos da Stone. Cor vermelho-âmbar, com media formacao de espuma. Aroma cítrico, lupulado, persistente. Na boca, corpo medio, amargor intenso, notas de grapefruit, manga e outras frutas cítricas. Retrogosto seco, amargo e refrescante. Álcool fraco, excelente drinkability! Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber brown and smells of toasted wholemeal bread and toasted malt. There is a lot of flavour here, rye and toasted malt balanced with what to me is piney hops, very nice indeed. Only let down is that to me it came across a little thin and watery. Overall definitely a good beer which I would be happy to drink all day long!

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Pours with a small white head on a dark orange-brown body. Strong aroma of malts and citric hops. Malty taste with citric hops following on a lingering bitter note. Dry medium-thick body.

morri (218) - NORWAY - APR 25, 2013
330ml bottle from Ølhandleriet. Tiny white head. Clear, but slightly cloudy amber body. Aroma of light hops, citrus, yeast and butter. Quite sweet on the tongue, bitter long lasting taste.

Nice, clear amber colour and a small tan head. Kind of faint aroma which I can’t quite make out, hops and some berries I think? Taste has some bitterness to it which lingers for a while. Slightly hoppy taste with some citrus. Soft mouthfeel and easy carbonation. Very easy to drink beer but somehow I was left disappointed.
