ojclark (69) - Santa Monica, California, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Bottle. Malty, toasty, caramel/butterscotch aroma with some piney hop character. Clear amber with mostly lasting off-white head. Minimal lacing. Malty, fruity, spicy hop flavor with some diacetyl/butterscotch and caramel notes and a mellow bitterness. Effervescent palate, semi-creamy mothfeel with a nicely lingering finish and aftertaste.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Deep amber color with a chunky off-white head - looks pretty good. The aroma is some caramel, doughy malts with a mild, pine and light citric hop accents. The flavor is well balanced between the sweetness of the malt and the gentle hop bitterness. It finishes rather quickly with a easy smack of hop bitterness. Good session ale material.

radiomgb (2242) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2005

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 13, 2005
Draft at Sheraton San Diego - Poured a darkish amber with a fairly thick off-white head. Aroma was on medium malt and citrus/grapefruit hops. Nicely balanced. Flavor is got a good mix of malt/caramel and hop bitter bite. Needed more hops though and would be better as an IPA if it had more.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 10, 2005
On tap at Rama in San Diego. Copper amber in appearance with a creamy white head. Nice hoppy aroma with a bit of a berry-like essence. Flavor is smooth- caramel and solid bitterness without the extreme grapefruit of the IPA. This is a very well-made pale ale. Possibly the best American Pale Ale that I’ve encountered.

shadey (1887) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2005
Red clear color with not much head. Light hop aroma with some malt. Smooth mouth, light hoppy character. Very easy to drink.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2005 Malty aroma. Nice amber color with a good off white head. Seemed like the hoppy alcohol bite presence at first. But half way though the beer was more easy on the palate. Some lacing on the glass. Little aftertaste not bad. Good beer after a 8 hour shift at work.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Fine white head, excellent rentention with some lingering. Mainly malty aroma with some floral notes in the detectable range. Medium body, with a slightly chewy palate that fades into a crispiness. Malt flavor with hop characteristics, some fruity and some floral, most evident through the finish. I think the Pale Ale showcases the Stone yeast, with its lower attenuation complementary ester formation, perhaps best of all the Stone beers. Not to say this is Stone’s best offering, but rather the distinctive Stone tastes can be codified easily in this brew.

Medium to dark amber color, tan head. Surprisingly lacking on most fronts, fairly malty, delicate hops is right, they were damn difficult to find. Lighter bodied. Meh.
