mcberko (6420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours brownish amber with a tiny head. Aroma of balanced caramel malt and hops. Flavour is a nice balance of the same, with a more pronounced hop flavour and citrus. Pretty standard but nice.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear amber, medium off-white head, not terribly persistent, spotty lacing. Nose is caramel/burnt sugar, light grapefruit hops, some slight pine. Flavours are much richer than the nose would suggest; big caramel and grapefruit, some spicy spruce notes, unfortunately, also quite metallic. Not the equal of either their Amber or their IPA. Probably the worst Stone beer I’ve had to date.

Pours amber with a big off-white head. Flavor is old pine hops, biscuit, grass, some citrus. I might be biased because this is a starter beer, or this was an old bottle, but this doesn’t live up to some other Stone beers I’ve had.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2011
12oz. bottle poured at home. Pours a clear reddish amber. Decent white head. Some light caramel on the nose, malty with just the faintest of fruit notes. Reasonably smooth mouthfeel, but with lively carbonation. Herbal and sharp, but a mellow aftertaste just about balances it out. Not bad.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Rich amber brew. Medium caramel malt and bitter, yet honeyed, hop nose and flavor. Rather underpowered compared to the typical Stone brew, making this brew rather ordinary and non-descript. Some decent qualities, easy bitterness with some citrus and balanced malting, but rather forgettable on the whole.

Clean, but needs a little more hops to refresh me. A mild ale with more malt than hops, really rich in the maltiness as it says. Stone makes great beer, duh, but this isn’t the variety for me.

fiercepanda (544) - Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2011
A hazy brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma is light, but has some citrus and grassy hops. The flavor has a strong malt character with quite a bit of bitterness. I miss some of the nicer hops flavors here, it just seems to be simple and bitter.

Stellaaaa (253) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Pours an orange colour with a medium sized white head. The aroma is of grapefruit and pine. The taste is of dry, slightly grainy malt with a piney, bitter hop bite. Not a bad beer, but not one of my favourites.

stouby (3726) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2011
Draught at Birch & Barley/Churchkey. Clear dark amber color with a white head, nice lacing. Aroma moderfate malty (caramel, roasted), moderate to heavy hoppy (citrus, pine, floral). Flavor light sweet, heavy bitter. Medium body, medium carbonation. A good, solid pale ale.

ansjelaah (1374) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2011
Gedronken bij Moeder Lambic in Brussel, viel tegenover de levitation en de smoked porter een beetje tegen. Leek meer op pils, verder wel fris en bitter.
