Bottled at some Taco-place in SF Slightly hazy with a white head. Pretty malty aroma with light hoppiness. Sweet in flavour with a medium bitterness.

Bottle. actually a pretty fine pale ale. Not a big fan of the floral hops but the spices and carmal made it good.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 12 oz bottle I found this offering from Stone to be pretty average in comparison to their other ales. It’s certainly better that most pale ales, but that said, it is a far cry from Ruination, Arrogant and Double Bastard. Or smoked porter. Just sayin.

pours a clear copper with a small off-white head, and good lacing. smell is floral, caramel, some spice, and a little pine. taste is of oats, malt, grain, some caramel, a little bit of cheerios, earth, and roasted nuts, ends a little dry and a little bitter.

Standard pale ale. Slightly disappointed as I know Stone has some very good beers. Very typical of the style - lightly flavorful and pleasant.

Cask @ The White Horse: Very spicy Christmas aromas. In the mouth you’re smacked with exciting hot-cross-bun style flavours. Light and exciting though maybe the malt outweighs any hop presence a touch too heavily. Smooth and flat.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2010
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle from Party Source (Syracuse), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear, bright amber with a decent orangey foam. Aroma: Starts off malty – slightly earthy, caramel, a little fruity, soapy; kinda woody and a little rum-like, some very light spiciness, sweet, tighter than expected. Palate: Medium body and very sparse carbonation – nearly flat, in fact. Flav.: Light caramel and toffee with earthy, woodsy notes – seems British, a bit soapy and piney; dry with a limited bitterness.

Not as American or as bitter as expected. Drinkable, but a touch disappointing.

Poured from the tap at Murphys bar (R.I.P.) in Cortland, NY. A complex ale with carmel notes, a little breadiness and some hops toward the end.

Clear dark amber color/ white head. Mild, but fresh floroal hop aromas. medium body. Decent honey malt sweet flavors with some pine hops..just ok.

Cloudy amber with an orange hue, soapy head. Aromas of grain, caramel, light hops. Flavors of bitter citrus hops, caramel, light grain. Bitter, crisp, dry finish. Good rounded pale just didn’t suet my senses.
