(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head atop clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some pineapple, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel, resin, light berry. Light-medium body, light effervescence, wateriness, acidity. I guess it’s a West Coast amber.

bhensonb (10978) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Aroma of malt with citrus hint. Coppery amber color with frothy tan head. Some lacing. Starts with caramel malt flavor, grapefruit aromas in the middle, and a nice lasting, but mild, bitter hoppy finish. Not your typical relatively tasteless amber. Sort of like a good pale ale with some extra malt.

Leighton (10847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Growler. Pours a nice, light amber-red hue with a fine, white head. Nose is hoppy with some malt undertones. Flavor is decently rich with nice character of lightly roasted malts and a kick of hops on the tail. Crisp, bittersweet finish. Quite tasty.

brokensail (10822) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: A dark amber/copper color with a thin whitish head. S: Light grapefruit and caramel malts. T: Initially a decent citrus flavor followed by caramel maltiness and a floral and bitter finish. M: Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, not much carbonation. D: The lightest of all the Stone brews, but not my favorite taste-wise.
