RichardGretton (4421) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
Cask@GBBF 2007. Golden brown beer with a lightly fruity and malty aroma and a golden beer malty flavour. Overall an OK fruity and malty beer.

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.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a nice darker clear amber with a thick frothy off-white head 3.5. Aroma of sweet caramel and piney resin, light citrus, pretty nice. Flavor is a little bit more citrus, some resin, lighter but rich caramel, quite good but I think I need a fresher bottle. Medium bodied, slightly sticky, larger carbonation, thirst quenching.

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.
