Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark red with fair amount of tan head. Appears well carbonated. Smells very hoppy. I taste tones of roasted malts and hops, along with citrusy goodness.

Kroney (150) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours deep copper/red... minimal head and lacing. Aroma has a nice spicey hop characteristic to go along with the light roasted malt backbone. Flavor starts out all-malt, but has a very nice citrus/spicey hop flavor to balance. At 4.4% abv, this a perfect session beer for people who like more complex flavors. Well done.

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2009
On-Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom, poured into Shaker Pint glass. pours a medium brown that has a copper glow around the glass with a creamy white head that dissolves into a broken ring around the shaker. Aroma has caramel malt, tart cranberry and earthy hops. Very unique aroma for an Amber. Flavor is a little watery upfront but develops into a caramel and toffee, once it shows itself, and a mild bitterness. It has a light-medium body that coats your mouth with every sip. Extremely sessionable and unique ale but the nose leads you to believe it may be more complex than it ends up being.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2010
Great power on the nose lovely spicy hops, very deep red with thin head. Lovely fresh vibrant beer, loads of delightful citrus/grapefruit/resin & a nice dry finish but tempered by rounded maltiness. For a beer at 4.4% this packs great flavour & balance

UPDATED: APR 8, 2003 I've revisited and rerated this brew. Originally, I wasn't that impressed with it...but that was in comparison to the Arrogant Bastard and the IPA as well as the Ruiniation. Probably not a fair comparison at all. This is actually a fine ale. I still think it is "Stone Light", but ONLY in comparison to other Stone Ales, which have forever corrupted me ;) A good brew, a definitely good brew as a thirst-quencher on a hot summer afternoon. Good, hoppy character. Definite notes of grapefruit.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2007
A another solid beer from stone. Bottled, pours a hazy amber with thick head and lacing. Citrus and earth hop aroma, very malty body if a bit thin. medium finish. Not overpowering and quite drinkable. A good session beer for sure.

lukedarock (142) - Howell, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Smells like a bit of HOPS! Looks good with very fast rising carbonation, taste is bitter but smooth as well, really like the texture it works with the taste, great beer for the hoppers!

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2008
An amazing beer for only 4.4 per cent ABV, it has color, flavor and appearance, probably one of the best and most flavorful under 5% beers. Pours a dark red amber with a brooding head, lacing abounds, flavors are hops, and caramalized malts, palate is thinner than other Stones, but stronger than some of the other beers available. Great picnic beer.

For me it just wasn’t what I wanted in an amber. I do love a hoppy beer, but I didn’t drink this expecting to get the hops if an IPA, which is what happened. Still, though, certainly this is not a bad beer. Just a little disagreeable to my hankering at the time.
