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

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - APR 3, 2009
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.

Bottle pours a clear deep amber with a frothy sandy colored head. Loght malty aro.a a bit of cardboardand wet grocery bags. Surprisinggly little of the west coast hops I expected. Woody light bitter malt flavor. Light pallettte that finishes quick. A bit dissapointing.

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.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2011
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.
