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.

Aroma is a nice blend of pine and sweetness. It poured a nice amber color with a long lasting eggshell colored head. Absolutely amazing taste! Nice pine tasting hops but not overpowering and a good malt sweetness with it. Light body with a slick mouth feeling and average carbonation. Love this stuff.

Keg @ Jolly Butchers courtesy of Ozzy 2013/3/11. Big hoppy nose. Bitter but balanced. Great body, carbonation and head. A little dry at first before the sweetness evens it out then a lingering bitterness. Very impressive considering the modest ABV.

Bottle-drink by 5/4/14. Nice deep copper color with a huge head. Crystal clear. Aroma of fruity hops--tangerines, apricots. Medium mouthfeel, slightly sweet, very balanced. Touch of fruity hops on the tongue as well. Nice bitterness, but not overdone. Hops hang around for a long finish.

Pours a transparent copper color with plenty of bubbles and a foamy white head. Has a grassy, pine, aroma. Taste is heavy on the pine, with some citrus and moderate hops. This has the character of an IPA more so than any amber ale I have had, but it’s the best amber I’ve had so far. Has a medium body feel with some carbonation. Delicious.

Wow, what a fantastic looking pale, super deep, dark coppery color thats very hazy and rusty with a thin tan head that faded fast with minimal drippy, spotty lace. Its only fault really as far as appearance. Aroma is a nice mix of roasty malts, dried pretzeled bread, dried hops that has a touch of piney resin and dried wood, maple syrup noted on some bigger wiffs. Taste is outstanding, perfect blend of malts in the front with a superb roastyness thats not overpowering, chewy, or sweet. Hops come in soon there after with a nice dried sense of leaves, pine, resin, bittering is intensely fine and lingers well with a small return in the roastyness of malts showing through. A great backbone in this one. Feel is medium bodied with a nice little hoppy texture in the finish. Finished this one in no time due to it being the only Stone brew I've had thats not in the bomber but in a 12 ouncer. Oh, plus its damn good; smooth, packed with nice flavors and body. Nothing empty about this beer but my glass and bottle- now that I'm done: I wan't another!

This is a tremendous Amber Ale. Stone brews are freaking awesome!!! Good hoppy flavor, Citrusy, definitely rich and a mouthful in every sip. There is nothing about this beer that makes it Modest. Might only be 4.4% but that doesn’t make it modest. Great Beer. I’m sure the rest of you already know this. Great bottle too. Might be the best one in my collection. Etched beer bottles are very cool.

Increible la textura que té amb només 4,4% vol. Molt aromàtica i refrescant. Com sempre Stone no decepciona. Gran.

Malty with a hoppy finish. Easy to drink. True session beer. One of the better Amber Ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

initial reaction was it was way too fruity but the aftertaste was wonderfully bitter and the overall experience was good. this won’t be a beer i seek out but it was nice enough.
