COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep amber in color, Stone Pale Ale is robust and full flavored. A delicate hop aroma is complemented by a rich maltiness.

Appearance: Pours a translucent amber with a 1/2 inch of thick white foam topping of head. Aroma: Light whiffs of malt sweetness Taste: Starts off with heavy bitter hops. Then I get a nice English-like maltiness followed by some more bitterness. Mouthfeel: Very carbonated and medium bodied. Overall: A way better session beer than Levitation, an agressively hopped pale for fure. I like a bit more crispness and citrus in my California Pale Ales.

I expected a little more from a pale from stone. it was descent light citrus hops with some malt to balance things out in the aroma and flavor. maybe I had a bottle that was about three months old. I will have to revisit.

An aromatic and malty amber ale that might have been refreshing if it hadnít coated your tongue with hairy hop resin. Harsh and sticky. My palate needs a shave. Interesting, I guess. Sweet and bitter beer that lacks subtlety.

Typical Stone product but less "oomph" to it. Pale golden color with frothy white head. Amazing aroma of hops typical of Stone. Lighter taste that lends it drinkability compared to other Stone brews. Basically, a "lighter" version of their IPA, and thus not as good.

Bottle pours amber with off white 2 finger head. Aroma is mild roast, caramel, and a slightly grassy hop profile. Taste is toffee with a resiny and spruce-y hop profile. Body is medium and oily with average carbonation and a dry bitter finish. Overall, this is a solid beer but not nearly as exciting as other offerings Iíve had from Stone. Middle of the road as compared to the other great pale ales I have sampled in the past few weeks. Whatís really odd is that Iíve really enjoyed this beer in the past but it somehow tastes different (inferior) than it did last year.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thick head. Fairly dull aroma of toasted malt. The flavor is also quite malty - and a little bit soapy - with a hint of citrus hops on the finish. Seems out of balance - not one of Stoneís better beers.

rbrazell (1584) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Amber orange pour with a fingers worth of white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts up front with underlying citrus and earthy hops. Flavor is mostly sweet caramel maltiness with bitter hops coming through in the end. I honestly donít think Iíve ever had this, but Iím kind of disappointed by it. Maybe itís expired?

Bottle at Patricks. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, hop, butterscotsch, fruit. Flavour is the same. OK beer.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a dark amber color, with a big offwhite head that quickly disappears and leaves lacing. Aroma of caramel and fruits. Sweet taste of caramel, not as fruity/hoppy as in the nose. Good beer, considering the meager abv.

Balanced beer. Liked better than the ipa. Stone seems to be a hop happy brewery and this one is not as strong.
