Pine and lemon , nice caramel and grain cereal malt backbone. Really refreshing, smooth finish - balanced and sessionable, one of Stone’s better offerings.
Sampled at Rozi’s Wine & Liquor, Stone Tasting Event, Lakewood, OH.

A very drinkable pale ale. Surprisingly hoppy for the style with a long bitter finish. Aroma of caramel and dough. Medium body and creamy texture.

Smallish but long-lasting white head. Mild aroma. Hints of lemon flavors which dissipates into a dry finish. Good session beer.

This is one of the beers that Stone don’t want me to have...search AussieBrewsNews and grey imports for more info on this silliness. Despite the brewers worries however this beer seems to have made the treacherous journey to Australia in pretty good shape. Slightly cloudy amber to copper with a thick long lasting head. Juicy citrus and flowery aromas with some malt behind. Thin to medium body very smooth despite the high carbonation with a nice lingering bitterness.
If this is an example of the dangers of grey imports I say bring it on. This is a great beer that I’d love to have regularly.

smooth, clean ale with faint citrus and honey flavor notes and a dry finish. There taste a measure of British specialty malt wether there is any or not it tastes that way. This is my bottled beer of choice with best balance of malt hops and fruity esters. Total consistencey with any aspect ot this brew.

Pours a dark copper color with a nice white head. Smell is citrus and grapefruite. Tates is sweet malt and citrus and a moderate hop finish. Nicely balanced and good carbonation.
