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.

Appearance is clear deep amber with creamy off white foam cap. Aroma is hop forward, more pine and herbal. Taste is roasted, toasty malt and gives way to a clean hop bite. The malt character is especially light, lacking the deeper body and viscosity more common with the style. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is a well balance bitterness that leaves a dry feeling on the tongue. An easy drinking, sessionable amber with great aroma, but seems to be lacking richness in malt character

Very dark, almost brown ale colored, nice fluffy head. Some lacing. A slight malty maybe some citrus aroma with a interesting woody aroma and taste, different! Typically Stone, i feel a little hop aftertaste. Compared too ALL other stones, this is pretty light, maybe a session beer. Alas, not typically available around here, otherwise might consider it for my "light" choice, Fine Stone offering.

Medium Amber color, malty aroma. Kinda light on the flavor (which is pretty malty), but a cold one is great on a hot day.

Bottle. Citrus hops is my overriding memory of this beer - not ragingly hoppy though. Light and flavourful. Nothing inspiring came to mind while drinking, but it was a good refreshing beer to start the evening with.

Nice amber color and light hop aroma. A ton of flavor for such little alcohol content. Would certainly drink this anytime ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours a very clear dark amber, nice thin white head with very good lacing and retention. Very strong hop aroma with a light malt sweetness. Bitterness and aromas transfer to the tongue but stronger than on the nose, still mild but higher sweetness from the malt. Medium carbonation medium-thin body.

this beer poured a nice deep amber with a small white head. aroma is of hops, mostly grassy and citrusy. for as low alcohol as it is this is a big beer. the flavor is definaly dominated by hops, but not by much. the roasted nutty malt flavor is definatly present. not my favorite stone beer, but a nice change of pace.

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!

A decent stone beer. brown in color, nice and bitter for an amber. Not a spectacular stone product but really good.

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.
