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

Had on tap at Stone Liberty Station in San Diego. Pours a rich bet with a thin white head. Aroma is toffee. Very dry clean finish. Really nice but not really a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teorn88 (5858) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Really old backlog rating, August 2011. 12oz bottle from Utobeer. It pours a clean amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is quite hoppy but with good malt backbone. Notes of grass, pine, citrus juice, light pine cones, light toffee. Taste is medium sweet and medium grassy and hoppy. Malty toffee notes, biscuit, grass, citrus, grapefruit and resinous hops. Bitter quite dry finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, nice and balanced pale.

355mL bottle Enjoy by 10/29/14 Looks nice in the glass; pale amber, decent clarity, firm white head. Nose has a good measure of hop & malt character - spicy, woody, pine & citrus combining with biscuity, lightly toasted, baked bread crust sort of character that seems common in many American ales. Medium to full body, decent carbonation, drinks well. There’s really nothing to complain about here - biscuity malts, spicy hops, good persistence onto the finish, bitterness is lifted but clean & balanced. Overall, very good APA - shame it has to travel from the other side of the world to get here!

Clear copper, medium off-white head which settles fairly quickly. Aroma of biscuit and caramel with floral notes. Flavours of citrus, caramel, a little pine perhaps, slightly floral, and a moderate amount of malt which isn’t too overbearing. Moderate bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, fairly smooth. Pretty nicely balanced in all.

"a little less of everything than Alpha King, but rates super high as far as drinkability. the flavor and aroma are a little subdued, especially for Stone, but it’s still more than enough. one of the better pales around."

caramel, chocolate, nuts, floral, citrus, pale, golden, minimal head, white foam, Great beer overall. One of my all time favorites and will continue to be in my rotation. Would highly recommend as a gateway beer to the Pale world.

onceblind (6739) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Clear copper with a thin rocky light beige cap. Crisp hoppy nose with a little herbalness and a touch of grassy resin and biscuity malt. Smooth flavor with a bit of grassy and resinous bitterness right up front with biscuit and pale malt finish. A wee bit sharp and herbal hop note.

Bitter hoppy taste. Not smooth or refreshing. Tastes like paint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
