This should be better! For as good as Stone is at everything else - here is where it lacks a bit, and I am saddened by it! One nice thing is that it is thick for a pale which is interesting - but the flavor is not as kicking as it should be!

This beer had a funky smell to it. I could not detect a lot of hoppy aroma. The appearance was great-nice golden color aith creamy white head. The flavor was that of a typical pale ale, good hops and carbonation. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Perhaps I should have had the Stone IPA after this one but I decided to have this one with the pizza. Pours a very very faintly hazy medium bourbon under a medium size medium short lasting light yellow head. Faint hop aroma and not much else - a touch disappointing for a Stone beer. Flavours of medium aromatic woody hops followed by mildly sweet caramel malt. Aftertaste was medium length medium intensity and crisp. BTW - went extremely well with anchovy pizza.

Bottle. This is a very, very malty beer. So many malts that the best one word to describe this is earthy. There is a nice bitter there that borders on too much. I love Stone, but this one just didnít do it for me. Too musty.

(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Lightly citrusy hop aroma with some caramel. Rather light-bodied with some accents of caramel atop a strong malt base. Very discreet bitterness. Pleasant. 020606

Pours a clear amber. Rather mild. SOme sweet maltiness dominated by a nice, fruity hoppiness. Also some metals. thin bodied. Dry finish.

Overated...poured redish amber with a tan head. Had a beautiful glow to it in the light. Aroma was malt and some bread. Flavor was bread and a slight hint of caramel. Medium to light body.

Draft at the Belly Up in Solana Beach. This is a decent mirco APA. Its smooth and drinkable and better then any macro but I find it to be just decent.

Bottle. I went in to this one with high expectations, looking forward to a sessionable APA from Stone, and have to say I was a bit let down. Aroma of peaches and pine. Flavor is somewhat nutty, especially as it warms, with a bit of a pine kick at the end. This one needs a good bit more hop flavor and aroma, IMHO.

Really bland beer to be honest. Certainly by Stone standards. By mine as well. My local pale is better than this. Gosh it sounds like I hate this beer. I donít hate it, just not too much to be excited about. Itís a pale. More like an amber tho. Probably a fair amount better on tap, and these bottles are likely not the freshest, so that could be a serious factor.
