3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slight diversion for Stone. Pours nice decent head, scattered lace all the way down. Smells of caramel, pine and grain. Taste is of malt and laced with citrus. Light bodied with a nice pinch of hops at the finish. The hop profile appears a bit different with this Stone outing. A fresh beginning from Stone tailspins towards the end. All the right stuff and absolutely no direction or cohesiveness. Finishes dry, but left me yearning

FIRST TRIAL: Pours a nice ruddy reddish brown with a tightly packed creamy head; aroma is grassy hops and lightly toasted malt; the bitter/grassy hop finish nicely cleanses the palate and balances out the touch of sweet malt in the flavor. Overall this was a dynamite second beer and helped clean off the remnants of the supersticky creme brulee stout that was left on my palate from the previous beer. I was pleasantly surprised by this, and am now even more pleased that Stone has made it to Wisconsin.

Bottle. Pours quite dark amber with a lovely creamy head with excellent lacing and retention. Aroma bit underwhelming, though. Full body, bitter and balanced in the mouth. Good follow through. Nice.

Hoppy at first but then easing back, head clings nicely along glass, would make an excellent beer with food or by itself, not overpowering on any one thing. A well made solid beer

0,355l Bottle. Amber colored. Low and thick head. Aroma is grapefruity, black tea and citrussy hoppy. Taste: Cracker, passion fruit, pine needle and little parfym. Pretty full body, with pleasant, fizzy carb and long bitter finish.

Local brew, but I haven’t had a chance to try it at the brewery yet. Tried it for the first time out of the bottle. Pours clear amber color with minimal head. I didn’t find it quite as bitter as some of the reviewers here. Taste is pretty hops forward, with a good spiciness. It could use more malt to balance the flavor.
