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.

clear, dark brown like cherry chocolate with a 2 finger foamy head. nose is well balanced with malt+hops, and a little bit of sugar. taste is much more hoppy than the nose, and rather mild and bitter. all around a little too hoppy, with not enough malt to balance it out. I can handle the IBUs, but there needs to be a little more malt base to build on.

Great easy drinker. Great hoppy aroma and taste. Just what you would expect from Stone even with the lower ABV. Hoppy Citrusy and a good light to medium body. A well balanced Stone session beer.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
Draught at the White Horse’s American Beer Festival 2009. Pine and orange dominate in both the aroma and flavour. There is some grassiness to it as well plus and nice bitterness throughout. A good beer.

Very nice tone-downed Stone Beer. I am a big Stone fan and this is a nice change from some of their over-the-top offerings (which I am very fond of). Nice amber/brown color with a small off-white head. Hoppy aroma with a hint of caramel. Hop flavor balances some of the sweetness that some ambers have. Good slightly bitter dry finish. Very enjoyable.

Nice full flavored tasty Ale. Not a bitter or abrupt Ale, but not creamy either. Stone makes a great selection of beers.

Aromas of caramel, hay. Pours a nice amber color with small particles floating in it. Tastes of caramel, malt, and small hints hay. Overall a very good beer.

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Crystal amber with faint off white head. Aroma of cascades, some diacetyl, faint sweet malt. Taste is intensely bitter at the front with a bitter finish. Ok. Muted/session version of other offers.

TH28 (111) - - JUL 6, 2013
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

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Cloudy amber color with thin white head that dissipates quite quickly. Aroma is citrusy and piney, a touch of malt. Flavor is of caramel and malt, but well balanced by the hops. Aftertaste is quite malty as well, which lingers a bit. The bottle says 4.4% ABV but it feels stronger than that. Overall, a very quaffable brew. Another good one, if not over the top, from Stone.
