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.

I was expecting something like a pale ale, but I believe Levitation more closely resembles an ESB. Nice red-bronze color and spicy aroma. It is actually quite strong, spicy and hoppy tasting. This surprised me, since so many Stone offerings have intense hop characteristics, I thought this one they’d develop and market a bit differently. Not my favorite Stone beer, but still something you can be proud to offer your friends.

bpttle poured a clear anber with an amber head. Aromas of carmel and a little fruitiness. Palate is crisp. Flavors of carmel, toffee and a touch of fruitiness with a dry slightly sweet finish.

You can’t do much more than this with an amber ale. Light brown and lightly carbonated. There is an aroma of herbal hops that promises a bitter beer. And the flavor is a lot like a bitter, with very light hops and a light malt body.

ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - MAY 29, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Deep amber body with a moderate to large head with decent lacing. Aroma is like a lighter version of ABA with the exception that it has the Amber Ale characteristics. Hoppy with citrus and caramel, some grapefruit. Pretty easy to tell that this is a Stone brew. Fairly typical amber ale with the stone house character that I don’t like.

At 4.4% it is not a strong as the label would insinuate. Levitation smelled mildly of peach and tasted of caramel. It had good balance between hop and malt. A nice mid-range amber ale.

Starts with a nice creme colored head atop a deep golden-amber beer. Slightly yeasty aroma that could have been stronger. Tasted flat with some hops, had a watery feel to it and a bitter finish.

Dark amber colored with a lasting thick tan head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is full of fresh, juicy hops, purple grape juice and some pine. Flavor pretty much follows the aroma, lots of citrusy hops, not a whole lot of malt to balance things out. A tad thin and metallic in the finish. I appeciate the attempt at a session ale from Stone, but this is way unbalanced. If I wanted an IPA, I would have bought one. (12 oz. bottle)

Tap @ The Shepherd & The Knucklehead Pub. Amber pour looks like a lager. After praising stone on ruination, this is a let down. Hops do not show up at all to me, roasted and smokey malt is all i get off this. Eh!

Pours a nice amber color, with whitish tan head. Lots of hops, a little citrus, and more hops. Fairly smooth and should be drinkable. I am not a big fan of the style, so I have to vote thumbs down.

Camons (8412) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle @ Hotelroom, Denver. Pours dark golden with a huge offwhite head, sprinkling bubbles and fragments of yeast showing. Aroma of caramel, pine, sweet fruit and sour cream !. Taste is grapefruit, yeast, citrus. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation. Looks and smells better than the it tasted. Drinkable, but not really a great beer. Sorry, but im proberly not worthy. 070311
