COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep amber in color, Stone Pale Ale is robust and full flavored. A delicate hop aroma is complemented by a rich maltiness.

this is quite possibly one of the most well balanced APAs I have ever tried. Delicious caramel malt sweetness, very floral hops on the nose, but turn into citrus on the palate. Perfectly bitter, never turning too much or too little. Tasty, could be my new session pale ale.

Copper with fleeting head. Predominantly floral hoppy aroma. Opens a bit bland with some malt sweetness, some floral and nutty tones in the middle, and closes with pleasant lingering bitterness. This is a very good beer to accompany grilled meat.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 on tap at the brewery: most people disagree, but some do... the stone beers on draft have a really bad funky flavor and aroma. The entire brewery reeks of it. I believe it’s more of their house character, which would make sense since I don’t like it. This comes off as a fairly typical APA with a house character I do not enjoy.

ChazMania (659) - Pasadena, California, USA - MAY 6, 2006
I love Stone beer. This started it for me a few years ago when I first had it on tap in Santa Monica. Now I’m a Stone freak. Just sampling a bottle of this beer, for pale ale, it kicks. Very balanced, mild carmel malt, and mild hop. Personnaly, I prefer IPA’s, but I would never say no to this one!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Draught. Clear copper color with bubbly white head. Pleasant floral hop aroma and flavor perfectly balanced with biscuity, caramel malt. Solid pale ale, very good.

IrishBoy (3945) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Amber with a decent goldish-tan head and a hoppy citrus aroma. Flavor had some malts and a mild hoopy taste with citrus notes.

In my humble opinion this is exelent beer. Will dirnk any time. I found tis to be better than Stone’s own IPA.

nice dark copper pour with a tan mushroom head. nose of citrus flowery hops and flax. flavor pushes large sticky hops with a nice malt backbone to drive it. a very good pale ale.

loseratheart (110) - USA - MAY 1, 2006
Full of hops, but not overbearing. Sticks to what stone does best. Enjoyable over the long run. NOt that dark, head settles quickly, awesome stone. Very drinkable.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2006
22 oz bottle. Beautiful deep golden body with a very small white head. Aroma was hoppy with some earth tones. Flavor was very nice and surprisingly (for Stone) subtle. It was relatively light in flavor with hop notes, but nothing overpowering. A very nice clean, drinkable pale ale.
