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.

Awesome color. lots of caramel and malt in aroma. Nice malty/roasty flavor. Very full for an amber. I was surprised by this beer. Semi bitter finish is nice. Will definitely buy this one again soon.

Dark, hazy brown with a smaller head. Stronger, maltier taste than most stone brews. Also, has a much lighter mouthfeel. Goes down very easy. I definitely recommend this.

Despite its color, this beer didn’t make me think "Amber Ale". Not too bad though. It was pretty hoppy and piney. Kind of clean crisp and refreshing. but lacking in the "taste good" department. Pretty mediocre especially for Stone which usually never disappoints me. Unfortunately this is the weakest Stone Brew I’ve had

Pours a clear dark orange color with a decent-sized head. Smells of caramel and maybe some butterscotch, tastes like hops, citrus, hops, caramel, and some hoppity hops. Finishes dry and leaves a pretty bitter taste in my mouth - not something I could drink all night.

I enjoyed this beer but I don't think it measures up to the rest of the Stone brews. Amber color with a medium white head. Mild hop and malt flavor and dry finish. A pretty good session brew, but not great.

A dark reddish amber pour that produced a tan head that was both big and thick. Smooth at first, then the hoppy bite comes through. A light medium body. It wasn’t anything special but it wasn’t bad either.

Pour from bottle, deep amber with short lived off white head. Citrusy but on the dark side I did not like it a lot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Pours dark amber orange, darker than most ambers. Aroma of malt and roasted nuts. Flavor begins with roasted malt and finishes with a nice hoppy bang. Overall, a good amber ale.
