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

A little dissapointing for me. I am a huge fan of the IPA and Ruination. I found the hop character on this beer on the weak side and just wanted more flavor. The malts are nice but I just wanted more. It is very drinkable still and i found it fairly light. Could work as a summer refresher if not in the mood for something a little more flavorful

On Tap at Yard House, Brea, Ca. Pours amber brown with a fluffy tan head. Roasted nuts and hops dominate the aroma. Flavor is mostly roasted nuts (from the malt) and finishes with a nice hoppy kick. A nice balace between malt and hops. The hops are more subdued than IPA (obviously), but still nice for a hop-head. Easily the best Pale ale I’ve had. Nice smooth palate and nice lacing down the glass

We need more breweries like this in Illinois! Another winner from Stone brewery.

Tap. Amber color, white head, medium in size and some decent lacing. Nose is generally of malt, nice and aromatic. Malt dominates the flavor, but some nice citrus notes and the hops keep it crisp and bitter. Hops become more pronounced in the finish. A fantastic pale ale, and about what I would expect from Stone.

Tasting at the Brewery. Nice red color. Smooth in the mouth and well balanced. Nothing outrageous just a well made above average pale ale.

my favorite beer from the stone brew and probably my favorite pale ale that you can get. not overly malty or hopped just right for a perfect ale that could be drank with any food at any time of year. little darker color with a nice foam head that just calls to you as you pour it into your favorite glass. if i had a little bit more money i would probably have a big stock pile of this beer at all times just waiting to be drank.

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

nice orange color- almost clear, slightly haze. Ample head, good lacing- stayed the whole way down (not that it lasted long). Aroma was nice- slightly floral with some sweet notes. I was expecting a little bitterness punch from the hops, i mean this is a Stone brew. But i was pleasantly suprised that the hops actually took a back seat to the malts here. Tatse was definitely sweet, but not overpowering- there was no sticky feel but it did lend a heavier body, even slightly chewy or bready. Hops seem to add more of the floral notes than bittering aspects. Again, the body was fantastic. Heavy enough to actually feel it without loading you down after having 1 or 2. Even chewy without being sticky, yet still a little crisp. Did I mention this went down real easy. Another great, yet somewhat different, Stone brew. I’m glad I bought a 6-pack

Flaska från Bishop Arms i Lund. Trevlig american pale ale från Stone. Balanserad men hade väntat mig lite mer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nice amber hue, w/a white head, amora is sweet & malty. starts off a bit sweet, some hints of caramel a well, but ends w/dry bitterness. good balance...a good pale ale from stone.
