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

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.

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?

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.

Not a bad pale ale. Maybe too much caramel flavor in it? Hops decent. I wouldnít turn one down if it was offered.

A bit disappointing coming from Stone, not as hoppy as expected, amber color, very weak head, half-decent malt character, very lacking the hoppiness, very disappointing in the hop profile, the one word is disappointing

Good color and nice white milky foam that lasts. Good initial malty tatse, but the aftertaste is a little too bitter for me. Not a bad beer but definately not one of my favorites.
