Best by: 22APR12
Pours a nice copper ale with a sheet of white foam and excellent clarity leaving some decent lace. A somewhat spicy smell with an unusually english malt profile from this brewery. There some aromas of prune and citrus. Flavor is malty with again spicy hops and a good english (almost high end ESB) malt character. Really nice flavor, just not what I expected from this brewery. Medium bodied with moderate carb and an off-dry finish. Nice pale ale, really dig the take. Not all flashy like some of todays offerings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin. Deep clear copper, frothy, decent sized off white head, lasting. Malty nose, a little toast. hints of molasses and honey, a little spruce hop note, not much. Huge malt flavour, sweet up front, settling to a biscuity, almost nutty note toward the finish. Big body. fairly forward carbonation. Finish is sweet biscuit malt with a nuance of herby hops. Nice.

(Bottle): Pours a red tinged amber with a small off white head. Aroma of pale malt, biscuit, caramel, citrus fruits. Flavour is refreshingly hoppy, citrus zestiness, sweet malt and caramel. Biscuit and peaches on the finish. Super drinkable.

Aromas of piney, sharp citrusy hops, with mild caramel and bready malts. Clear amber with gold highlights and a lasting small off-white head. Dry, light vanilla, lightly bitter, well balanced. Light bodied, smooth, and clean.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep reddish amber pour with a foamy, white top that lingers long. Nose is malty and sweet, but the taste is surprisingly and pleasantly bitter. Good body and lively carbonation. Stone delivers. Very nice!
