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

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2007
Dark amber color; creamy head. Aroma of caramel, candi sugar, rhubarb. Medium to light body structure, a lot of caramel flavor, bitterness far below expectations (but with some aromatic quality). The bottle is not old, but the flavor seems to be.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle, 12oz at Patricks. A dense, finger-thick off-white head sits on top of a copper coloured, clear body. Cute lacings. The aroma has a pleasant malty backbone, with piney, resiny and grassy hops. A but on the amber ale side, but pleasant anyway. The flavour had some caramel maltiness as a foundation for grassy, piney hops and some bitterness. Full body, soft on the palate. Some bitterness in the finish, would like it to be more, but it’s nice anyway. A pleasant one indeed, but a bit old-style for me. 120830

Deep amber color, medium white head. Aroma of caramel and light citrus. Taste starts sweet, then bitter lemon. OK.

harrisoni (14605) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2007
Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Amber, bubbly beige head. Subtle rather nice hop aroma. However, doesn’t do a huge amount in the mouth malt wise, even watery. Fragrant. Flowery. It’s just a little disappointing in the mouth. Nice though, good flowery hop.

Bottled 355ml (Beer Hunters, BB 01/2012)
Deep, clear ruby color, small off-white head. Bready-hoppy aroma, also a bit fruity. Light to medium bodied. Light fruity citrus in front, then heavy hoppy (for a pale ale) aftertaste. Pale ale with punch.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2003
Full red amber; foresty nose w/ some candyish notes. Earthy, chewy character with notes of cocoa and wisps of lemony hops overlaying a solid malt footing.

brokensail (12286) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
A: The beer pours a light amber color with a finger of two of white head and some nice lacing. S: Nowhere near as hoppy as many of the other Stone beers, but that probably works out for the best. It’s still got a nice citrus and floral hop character along with a bit of pine. A fair amount of toasted and caramel malts providing sweetness. T: The flavor is lightly sweet with a lot of bread and toast, a bit caramel forward, too. Citrus hops with a light pine bitterness and some floral character lightens things up. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Not an overly aggressive pale, but a good, solid pale ale.
