Right. A very good hoppy ale. Noticeable hops, especially on the aftertaste. Not bitter.

Despite its somewhat watery consistency, it displays a very balanced character of simple ingredients. The slightly hoppier than usual finish makes it a little more interesting than the average amber ale. A great session beer.

Color is amazing. A deep rich amber tone that belies the light ale. Although alcohol is subdued it is *not* a watery beer. Notes of grass and coffee are most obvious. Bitterness is subdued and I think this is a huge plus. Great beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber with good head retention. Refreshing malty aroma with some fresh sweetness. Taste simple and to the point. Caramel and toast with nice hop flavor. Perfectly tuned beer.

Pours cloudy copper with a beige head. Aroma is citrus and pine with a pleasant mix of yeast ale esters. Carbonation level is low. Taste is slightly biting (bitter). Nice malt, piney, but falls flat in the after taste.

A pleasant aroma of hops comes off the slightly khaki-colored head. Good retention and lacing stuck to the sides of the glass. Substantial hop flavor up front in the taste, almost on par with an IPA, with a strong malt presence and broad grain support. Well rounded and creamy in the mouth, with citrus and more hops in the finish.

On tap at Flanagan’s Ale House. I’d never had this before, as it is not available in KY. But, it was still on after last Thursday’s Stone promo with Greg. Anyway, nice citrusy nose. Clear beautiful amber color. Medium bodied, with nice blanace of roasty malts and spicy hops. Immensely drinkable.

Not a bad ale. It tastes like the other Stone Ales (like the Pale Ale, the IPA and Arrogant Bastard), but with a little citrus.

Stone Levitation Ale. Goddamn itís good. This became one of my bad day beers because it seems to get me in a better mood. It has an amazing appearance, one of the best Iíve seen. It pours out a deep orange, almost copper color with a very impressive beige head that has really great retention. It even has lacing to make most beer jealous. This is how a perfect beer would look like, movies take note, use this in your films. Aroma isnít too spectacular, like there isnít anything too surprising about it. It has a malt aroma with a hoppy nose to it. Not too shocking or out of the box. The flavor is subtle, but one that I enjoyed very much. itís primarily hoppy with a slight sweetness to it, maybe apricot? Iím not too sure, itís hard to place but it works well with the dry bitterness. This is a great beer that everyone should try at least once and one that everyone should see to believe.
