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.

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 I’ve 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. I’m 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 Stone’s 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.

My main impression from this was tea leaves. Kind of like a light version of Three Floyds Alpha King. Amazing flavor for an ABV of only 4.4%. It would be a fantastic session beer, yet flavorful enough to satiate in a 12 ounce dose.

DarkBeerChick (155) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle from Stein’s 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.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
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.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Pours deep amber, with a thick white fluffy head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine dominate, backed up by an aggressive better flavour that leads into malt and a sour grapefruit finish.

RKanis (152) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Pours amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is very hoppy with hints of pine and citrus. Tast is nice. Hoppy but not too bitter.

pours a beautiful reddish mahogany with large foamy off white head. aroma of citrus and malts. tastes of lightly bitter fruit tones of apple and pear, with a touch of nut tones.
