UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 Absolutely gorgeous beer. Starts out bold, but finishes a little light. I’d probably rate it higher if it was brewed by someone else, but compared to Stone’s other fantastic beers, this one seems average.

I haven’t tried to many amber ales but this one will defiantly be unforgettable. It’s great in taste and the citrus really shines through in this great brew.

weordie (211) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
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 Now my bottle from Rehils in Jesmond was quite a few months out of date, didn’t notice till after I poured it, so taste had maybe dimmed but was sweet, malty and a bit watery. Very nice but not fantastic.

Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Nice amber color and a soapy white 1 finger head; a very piney aroma...almost a gin aroma to it and a tiny bit of lemon; taste is much the same up front with a lingering piney aftertaste; nice lively carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. How did they pack this much flavor into such a small ABV? This is a must have session beer.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2010
12 oz Bottle -- Pours dark amber with a medium rocky off white head. Fairly fruity nose. Aromas of roasted malt, lemongrass, citrus zest, black tea, hay, and caramel. Medium weight on the palate, medium sweetness and bitterness.

From a bottle to a standard pint, this beer pours a dense amber color with a monstrous pillowy thick white head. Up front, the aromas are piney and citrus hops. Goes along with some bready malt aromas. Found this beer to surprisingly be a bit complex. A sharp hop bite that quickly moves to some tasty roasted caramel and bready malts before a quick dose of some citrus hops that really brings it full circle. Gives it a nice bitter finish. Full-bodied and a little thick and fizzy on the palate, this beer makes me think more of a well-balanced Pale Ale rather than an Amber but pretty damn good nonetheless.

Aroma is roasty with malt and yeast in the background. Appearance is that f an amber ale with nothing spectacular to note. For a beer with 4.4 percent alcohol it has much more of a full bodied flavor than I expected. This is a good beer if you are looking to be able to drink several beers. The yeast flavor really comes through.

Bottle. Very hoppy aroma. Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. A little lacing on the glass, but otherwise has a thin mouthfeel. Has subtle undertones of nutty malts, but main flavor is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. This is a very mild, light beer compared to Stone’s other brews. Definately better than major generic beers, but not my preference. Good for when you want to pound a few and not feel like you ate a 7 course meal.
