3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
