Pours a slightly hazy ruby with no head and a lovely hoppy sweet aroma. Plenty of sweet malt flavour, oily hop but without the bitterness, and an odd chinotto-like cola finish. Quite carbonated, thin body. Not sure what to make of this... not really roasty at all, plenty of citrus but no bitter kick to the hops. Interesting beer, I will have to try it again.

Clear, dark, amber brown pour with an off-white head. Has a characteristic Stone aroma to it: lots of bright, citrusy hops, with a bit of a sweet orange character, plus some maltiness and a bit of brown sugar. Seems a bit thin on the body, though the low alcohol makes this stuff pretty drinkable. Has a bit of caramel and a roastiness, and a citrus hop finish. The hop finish seems a bit off and astringent, bringing this down a bit.

From bottle. Nose is full of sweet floral hops. Pours deep amber with a pale and foamy white head. A mixture of sweetness and some bitterness, and a full mouthfeel. Not a bad offering. All the signs of a good ale, if just a little boring.

Cask at the RAF 2003: Nice aroma of juniper, lemon rinds and pine. A little bit like eating a piece of an orange rind, but overall a good mouthfeel and a clean crisp finish.

Draft at the Stone Kickoff at the Blind Tiger Ale House in NYC. Not a bad beer. Just a litt tame from a brewery that makes great big beers. Nice amber with a hint of hops.

11/14/03. On draft at the Stone Brewery in San Marcos, CA 11/14/03. Pours a clear amber with nice off-white color head that lingers. Very mild nose of hops, lightly malty. Shimmering but quick lacing. Looks better than it tastes. Thin-to-medium mouthfeel, decent flavor-- lightly nutty and mostly malty, again hops just to accentuate a bit. Pretty long finish for what it is, but not as elegant as the other Stone brews. A decent session beer overall, but really nothing more.

For a session ale, I found this to be quite enjoyable. I't the perfect beer to have when you want one more that isn't too strong, but still has a pleasing flavor.
