This lightweight of the Stone family still packs a hell of a tasty punch compared to brews of the same ABV. Pours dark amber with a smallish but persistant off-white head. Good lacing all the way down. Aroma is pretty malty but backed with typical Stone hops- floral, fruity and aggressive. Flavor is the same, again suprisingly malty and tasty for such a 'light' beer. Just the right amount of bitterness ends it. Yummy. Love this beer, I just drink it too damn fast :)

Bottle. Golden-amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of caramel and citrus. Mouthfeel has a little bite from the bitterness but far from overwhelming. Flavors are of caramel, bread, citrus and pine. The aftertaste is very clean and light. This is a great session beer.

Dark, hazy brown with a smaller head. Stronger, maltier taste than most stone brews. Also, has a much lighter mouthfeel. Goes down very easy. I definitely recommend this.

Despite its color, this beer didnít make me think "Amber Ale". Not too bad though. It was pretty hoppy and piney. Kind of clean crisp and refreshing. but lacking in the "taste good" department. Pretty mediocre especially for Stone which usually never disappoints me. Unfortunately this is the weakest Stone Brew Iíve had

Iím so used to stones other beers that this just seems plain. Itís definetly a step up from bud or coors but thatís what I really feel like it is in a way. I guess this would be a great bbq beer if your looking for something to drink with your non beer buddies.

Awesome color. lots of caramel and malt in aroma. Nice malty/roasty flavor. Very full for an amber. I was surprised by this beer. Semi bitter finish is nice. Will definitely buy this one again soon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I enjoyed this beer but I don't think it measures up to the rest of the Stone brews. Amber color with a medium white head. Mild hop and malt flavor and dry finish. A pretty good session brew, but not great.

Pours dark amber orange, darker than most ambers. Aroma of malt and roasted nuts. Flavor begins with roasted malt and finishes with a nice hoppy bang. Overall, a good amber ale.

Sampling at the brewery. Deep amber color. Slight butter, hoppy (grapefruit).
