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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The malts of double bastard without the hop bite, simple stone profile, I’m not feeling them. Don’t know what the huge appeal is

Bottle (may have been old). Strange marzipan-like aroma. The taste is very green, lots of grassy notes, and citrus. Medium bitterness.
