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

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 Nice dark red-amber color ... musty, malty aroma. Big solid head of bubbly foam. Bit of a watery texture, but a nice smoky bitterness, hop flavor with an almost buttery twist. Maybe a bit doughy. Nice solid pale ale.

I remember thinking this was a very good beer, but never wrote down actual ratings. So this is just from memory.

Couldn’t get much aroma off this beer (yeah i swirled it around). What i did get was, surprise, hop bitterness and fruityness. Copper in color with creamy off white head. Dry, hoppy bitterness with undertones of mellon, perhaps, slightly there. Hops obviously dominates but there is enough malt to make in interesting. Leaves a nice lace around the glass. Great beer. Stone rocks!

Top notch pale. Big hop bite balanced nicely by just enough malt. Stone is just top notch.

Smooth malty taste at first yielding a strong hoppy finish that makes it quite an enjoyable beer. Another winner from Stone.

This is probably one of the more interesting pale ales I’ve ever met. There’s a glowing orange warmth to the color and a sweet, lightly citrus tinge to the nose. It starts out kind of sweet and lemony, then grabs you with a pretty large hop finish. Even for the big taste, this is still a very refreshing beer. This is what everyday beers should be like. I think I’ll have another...

Very very good. One notch above Sierra Nevada, and that is a compliment. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Re-Rate 08/06/02: ’What the hell, been 7 months since I had a ’Stone Pale Ale’, been concentrating to Frigging Hard’ on this 5000th beer crap. Well, I’m going to fix that ’Rat Now’. Pours a deep amber to copper color, the head is generous, creamy and biege, the lace by the tons. Nose is a nice deep sweet malt, hints of caramel, and the little ’Hop Flowers’, I love so much. Front is malt sweet, top is medium, the finish is ’Hop Heaven’, dry, acidic, and still ranks as one of my top two pale ales. Ranks #206 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Pours with a large foamy head, on a clear orange body. Pleasant hops/fruity aroma. Caramel taste, not very bitter, ends dry.
