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.

Cloudy amber/brown color with thin foamy off white head. Aroma has resiny citrusy hops, strong but not at all overpowering, a touch of maltiness and hint of caramel. Flavor is malty with a good dose of caramel, largely lacking the hoppiness and bitterness that is present in the aroma.

Bottle. Citrus hop aroma. Rich red-amber color with a big off-white creamy head. Light body - could use more malt backing. Citrus hops.

I’m so used to stones other beers that this just seems plain. It’s definetly a step up from bud or coors but that’s what I really feel like it is in a way. I guess this would be a great bbq beer if your looking for something to drink with your non beer buddies.
