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.

This may be one of the best "lighter" beers iíve had. The ability for this to be this good and this drinkable is great. The people at Stone really knocked this out of the park. Sure the IPA and Ruination are tastier and stronger but this could be the best go to beer ever. The drinkability of this is unreal. I cant imagine it being too hot for this beer.

Amber beer, reasonable head dispersed fairly fast. Aroma mostly grapefruit with what could have been a touch of melon. Flavour much like aroma with a touch of malty sweetness.

12oz bottle ---> standard pint. Pours a nice deep amber with a frothy head that dissolves quickly. Nice floral aroma with some citrus. Palate is very light with little carbonation (too light for me). The closest thing I can describe the taste to is sweet tea, and I mean that in a good way. This one tastes more like an IPA without the bitterness. Great summertime beer and one you could put away far more than one a sitting. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours Dark copper with thick white foamy head. Aroma is malt and honey. Now my bottle from Rehils in Jesmond was quite a few months out of date, didnít notice till after I poured it, so taste had maybe dimmed but was sweet, malty and a bit watery. Very nice but not fantastic.

Pours a dark red with a latte - colored sponge foam head. Strong malt aroma. Solid malt taste with an equal amount of hops bittering. Well carbonated with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

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.

Malty nose overwhelmed by the same strong hops that dominate every Stone release. At this point it's pretty boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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