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.

Like the name implies, it pours an amber color with off white head. Closer to an IPA I think than an amber ale. Pretty bitter.

Plamadude30k (122) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Pours a reddish amber with a fair amount of head. Nose is pretty much an IPA and taste follows. I’m kind of disappointed in this one, it seems like a basic copy of everything else Stone has done. I wish they’d change it up a bit.

Amber/caramel in colour. Aroma’s of toffee and caramel. High sweetness and a dry hop bitterness in taste.

PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2009
poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker glass. Pours a very nice deep amber colour with a thick foamy head which quickley subsides. Very hoppy aroma and bitter taste. If hops is your thing, this is an excellent session beer. Excellent lace on the glass which lasted to the bottom.

jnelson_22 (118) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2010
Pours a nice clear, amber/red with good, light tan head and good carbonation, sticky head that fades slowly and leaves nice lacing. Nose is beautiful (though not to deep) piney, grassy hops, complimented by sweet, fruity malt and candy sugar. A bit thin in the mouth (seems watered down) but with a decent hop attack that really comes through on the swallow and a decent, biscuity malt character and a touch of caramel. Decently balanced and very easy-drinking, but the taste is a disappointment (dull) after that nose.

forsides (118) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2009
nice fluffy, lightly tan head, reddish copper color and clear. nice clean fruity hop nose. mellow caramel maltiness and good hop bitterness, dry finish.

marvinpontiac (117) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Nice roasted malt flavor and heavily hoppy on the aroma. Thick and creamy tan head. Very atypical for an amber and certainly not their best brew but very nicely done by Stone.

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a dull medium brown with a filmy and persistent head. Lovely nutty aroma, and a lovely taste. Hazelnuts with lemon zest followed by a generous hopping. Depth of flavor in the aftertaste. Is this really only 4.4%? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dastrn (115) - Warsaw, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2009
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.

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.
