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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is of caramel malts and pine hops. Flavor is more of the same with a nice hop bitterness for low alcohol beer. Finishes with a sweet malty backbone. A lot of flavor packed into this beer for it being light.
