12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, resinous hops, pine and grapefruit. Flavour of pale malts and hops - well-balanced. Not really too special for Stone.

355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
Drunk at 6am just outside the security checkpoint at Stansted Airport, as we couldn’t take it with us thanks to the fucking TSA and European spinelessness. Dark, clear woody brown like a dunkel. Good beige head, with great retention. Simple dry woody and nutty. Very English in style, a million miles removed from what I consider an "Amber Ale" (namely something sweet, sticky, and incipid). Taste follows the aroma. This is more like a northern brown bitter or even an old ale, but without any of the sourness that sometimes tags along with those monikers. This may be a very simple beer, but it is very tasty and very drinkable.

Tmoney99 (13253) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Draft at Dilly Deli. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasted and had good lacing. Good malty and citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with slick dry texture and flat carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good session brew.

(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.

imdownthepub (12928) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2009
Keg at Pivo Bar, York. Clouded amber with slight head. Just had to go for it, but it turned out to be quite tart and acidic over a fruity, caramel body, not what I really expected. Smooth and a little thick on the palate, a bit of a struggle.

Draught (as Levitation IPA) at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Clear copper color, nice full slightly off-white head. Smell fruits, hops, bitter: just great. Tastes fresh, grassy, hoppy, bitter and fruity. Nice carbonation, medium bitter.
