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.

Low abv, though it doesn’t taste like it; still a little hoppy for my taste, but a solid brew.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Aroma is citrus, caramel and hazelnut. Taste is hoppy and spicy that fades to a light but sharp bitter. Hop dominated style, yet caramel, grass and some malt notes in the finish. Low carbonation. Tasty and refreshing session brew if you like this style.

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.

chalicemaster (110) - Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2013
This is a "lighter" ale that does very little in the way of flavor, and much like other Stone pale ales, is just a lot of hop bitterness. I’m okay with that, because I enjoy that style, but it feels like a missed opportunity to do something a bit different here.

Hazy reddish brown with a fading white head. Unique flavor with a dry woody and caramelly malt flavor. I want to say it has a rye flavor but not too sure. Reminded me of two brothers cane and ebel. Not bad.
