yngwie (14146) - 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

harrisoni (14138) - 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 (12789) - 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.

If, as the bottle say, this is their flagship beer, how come I can get every other of their non-seasonal except this one?! Regardless, hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Big hoppy aroma (grapefruit/flowery), supported by mild sweetness. Flavor is medium flowery hoppy, with hints of peach and grapefruit. Chewy body. No attempt to overwhelm you, which is somewhat unexpected in a Stone brew. Instead, what they've given is a delicious full-bodied beer.
