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

Dark copper body with a minimum amount of head. Not a stong aroma or flavor like all the other Stone’s. Has a nice thick texture but does lack some flavor. The hops are mild and the malt is too giving room for the honey and flower sweetness i sense. Had this numerous times on tap and 6 packs but now i finally bought a pint and got around to critiquing it.

Clean, crisp, clear. A good session beer worth buying over and over again. Stone knows how to make good beers. This one is not great...just good again and again!

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Bottle. This is a very, very malty beer. So many malts that the best one word to describe this is earthy. There is a nice bitter there that borders on too much. I love Stone, but this one just didn’t do it for me. Too musty.

ricardowess (25) - Sedona, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2004 Clear amber color - small head. Not as hoppy as I had expected- partially covered by light caramel malts. Sweet mouthfeel and no aftertaste- easy to drink.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Light amber color and makes a medium white head. Smell has a slightly roasted malt characteristic, but not too exciting. Flavor is interesting.. it opens up spicy and sweet, roasted, nutty and has a nice bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel is a solid medium, has a slightly sticky syrup aspect that sticks to the mouth and throat as it goes down. I like it, its a good session beer.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Pours a clear amber/copper color with good head and lacing. Very malty/bread-like nose. Malty flavor with a nice hop bite. Very clean finish. This beer is very well balanced, not over-the-top like some of Stone’s other beers I have tried. I guess that’s the point.

A hazy amber beer with an OK head. The aroma is hoppy sweet and the flavor is dry malty with notes of aroma hops and caramel.

OldGrowth (2610) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottle, at the Freakin Frog. Ok nose, caramel, citrus,floral. Clean reddish copper color. Small to no head. Bitter sweet flavors, same as aroma, but more pronounced. Thinner body, little creaminess. Bitter dryish finish. Tasty pale ale. Traditional though. Nice to try since it doesn’t make it to Boston.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Stone Pale Ale poured a dark dingy orange with a modest white head that laced up well throughout the session. Beautiful color! Faint fruits in the aroma, slight caramel and a lot of citrus flavors in the nose. This really doesn’t smell that well to be honest. Lovely flavor! Really drinkable and a great session beer for sure. Starts pretty sweet with some tropical fruit flavors. Caramel comes out in the mid-palate. Sharp hops on the finish, slightly bitter but very pleasant. The most moderate beer Stone offers. Very mild and a good "warm up" to the rest of their beers.
