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

Copper color with a nice size head. Excellent balanced hop - malt aroma. Big initial hop flavor followed by a nice smooth malt flavor. This beer is toned down for a Stone beer, but very good nonetheless. Medium body.

A very good everyday beer. "Pale" in this case is certainly not synonymous with a lack of flavor (go ahead and try to find a Stone beer that doesn’t have flavor...I dare you). I avoided this beer for such a long time because I related "pale ale" to "clear beer". This beer sets new standards for pales.

Bottle. Deep orange in color with a nice fluffy white head. Malty caramel and hoppy aroma. Hoppy and malty flavor. Citrusy notes. Well balanced beer. Medium bodied. Clean mouthfeel. Easily drinkable. Finish is bitter. Crisp and refreshing. Nice.

hayduke (3576) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 6, 2006
Dark gold to amber with a nice white head. Great carmel nose with clean hoppyness. Good on the mouth and easy to drink. This is so simple it is wonderful. The best American Pale Ale on the market in my opinion.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2006
Poured a darker golden/amber color. Light tan head, dissapeared. Amazing hop smell, malty tones as well. Medium carbonation. Best pale ale i’ve gotten to enjoy thus far. Absolutely brilliant. Too bad its not available in my area, as I received this via Liquorama.net mail/online. Its no Arrogant Bastard, but its definately a bastard of a good time.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Made a good appearance, poured a clear red hued amber with a nice sized foamy white head that settled into a thin, bubbly lacing, medium carbonation. Had an English buttery, toasted caramel malt nose with a floral hoppiness, a little toasted graininess, and hints of fruitiness that I think comes from the malts. A crisp, smooth, buttery medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Buttery caramel malt taste at first, a fresh, raw, rolling, balanced hop bitterness follows, a toasted graininess in the middle and a slick, buttery, oily hop and grainy finish, delicious. An excellent Pale Ale, my introduction to Stone Brewery, a great start.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Poured clear bright copper with a white head. Sweet malt with earthy, dirty, woody hops. The flavor was a gritty, dirty, muddled, mash of hops and malt with a spicy finish. Fuller body with a short finish. There’s not really anything I enjoyed about drinking this one. Kind of a dissapointment in my eyes. Good thing our friends at Stone have a lot going for them.

Pours a dark amber from the bottle. Nice long lasting off-white head and lacing. There are large bubbles escaping and much smaller bubbles generally floating in this brew. The aroma consists of more flowery hops as opposed to piney hops (which in my mind is a huge plus). I’m not impressed by the palate of this beer, although it may be representative of its style. The flavor is better than average, because the hops are rather muted. Not bad for a pale ale.

oldno7 (137) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Pours a dark hazy orange with a beige head. Has aromas of hops, fruit, pine, and floral. The flavors were Hops, malt, citrus and fruit. An excellent APA.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Very nice oaky amber color with a thin golden head. Subtle hop aromas with a touch of clover and lemon rind. The flavors are nice and floral with some light malts as well, but the consistency is a bit thin. Overall, a nice, light, even balance between the hops and malts.
