COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

Honey with very fleeting tan head. Some hoppy aroma. Opens completely bland and with a thin watery body. Not much happens with flavors and in the end there is a rather unrewarding and not particularly interesting strong bitter aftertaste. Stone Brewing can do much much better.

Purs a light brown, very little head that dissapates quickly,nose is very weak, slight hops smell. Taste is rather boring for a a Stone beer. Not terrible, but nothing special

an amazingly potent amber ale, one with a heavier dose of hops and malts than i expected. definitely one to try if you are a fan of amber ales.

Bottle. 12 oz. Pours slightly amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of hops, barley, figs, and citrus. Thin, rather weak bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Bland finish. Average amber ale from Stone.

I am a big fan of Stone and most of what I have had from them. I was very excited to get this beer from a friend, but was not overly impressed with this one. Medium amber-brown color. Large head. Aroma is malty. A medium bodied amber. Malts are lively, slightly nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are fairly bitter. Drinkable, Lots of hop flavor. Nicely balanced, flavor-wise, but seemed over-carbonated to me. Could be the batch. Very cool etched beer bottle. Not quite up to what I expect from a Stone brew, but a good enough beer.

I think this might be another older bottle, but I am getting light toasted malt in the aroma and flavor with a touch of sweetness. light piney, citrus, mango hops in t e flavor and aroma. desdent carbonation and mouthfeel. again I might need to revisit.

Bottle pours dark amber with frothy white head. heavily carbonated. Aroma citrus and pine hops. Taste the same, very hoppy with a pine hop finish. Quite good medium smooth palate, Alcohol disguised. Poor balance, too much hops. Hopheads will like this one.

Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Clear amber orange color. Two fingers of frothy head with good retention and some lacing. 4.0 S: Nose is full of toasty and crystal malts. Plenty of floral hops as well. Nothing special, but good nonetheless. 3.0 T: Unlike Stoneís other brews, this one seems empty. There isnít a lot of maltiness going on, much less than I expected. Thereís a decent amount of earthy hop flavor and a good punch of bitterness, but it doesnít make up for the lack of maltiness. 3.0 M: Light-medium (more light than medium) body, which is lighter than Iíd prefer in an amber. Otherwise smooth with good carbonation. Could be creamier. 3.0 D: Body is too light and not complex enough in terms of malts for me to want another.

Grassy medium nice hazy cigar color. Canít miss the hop and I donít know if I like that. Overall itís a neat beer.
