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.

This lightweight of the Stone family still packs a hell of a tasty punch compared to brews of the same ABV. Pours dark amber with a smallish but persistant off-white head. Good lacing all the way down. Aroma is pretty malty but backed with typical Stone hops- floral, fruity and aggressive. Flavor is the same, again suprisingly malty and tasty for such a 'light' beer. Just the right amount of bitterness ends it. Yummy. Love this beer, I just drink it too damn fast :)

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 wasnít anything special but it wasnít bad either.

Iím so used to stones other beers that this just seems plain. Itís definetly a step up from bud or coors but thatís what I really feel like it is in a way. I guess this would be a great bbq beer if your looking for something to drink with your non beer buddies.

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 didnít 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 Iíve had

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.

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.

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
