Nice reddish brown beer with some piney hop, albeit mildly so, presence.and some woodiness and maltiness. Although there was a slight sweet malt presence, overall it was fairly one-dimensional, through flavour and finish, but for me it was the right dimension - bitter hops. Quite nice.

Good color and nice white milky foam that lasts. Good initial malty tatse, but the aftertaste is a little too bitter for me. Not a bad beer but definately not one of my favorites.

Gmku (294) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Dark amber in color, piney hop nose, sweet and bitter in flavor. I think I like most other pale ales better than this one. I think it’s the piney hops that put me off.

dwyerpg (4566) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Can’t tell if I like the smell, but overall this is one of those beers that grows on you. The taste is as funky as the aroma and looks similar to Sierra Nevada. Not a bad beer, but most of the other Stones are better.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Pours dark amber out of 22 oz bomber. Little to no head, no lacing left. Malty, butterscotch aroma with a touch of hops in the background. The flavor that comes to mind up front is prunes. Medium oily mouthfeel. Nice bitter finish, decent malts.

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 (5482) - 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 (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
Bottle. Caramel-amber in colour. Aroma of mild hops and some soft cookie malts. The flavour was slightly sweet, some caraml and cookies, doughy malts. Mild body, mild carbonation. Finishes with a mild bitterness, medium length.

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.
