Unless you’re stuck at a Yard House in East Nowhere, I don’t know why this would be your call (if you’re the type who pores over ratebeer ratings). It’s more of a starter beer - the one that gets your buddy to start drinking micro. Very clean, not hopped like an IPA. A good palette cleanser.

Overall, a decent pale ale. A bit too hoppy for the gravity, but still a decent beer. Plenty of hops, plenty of malty flavors. Decent mouthfeel, but a little over hopped for my tastes.

Poured a light hazy brown with a big white head. Aroma is of weird maltiness and a little bit of hops. Flavor is also malty but in an off way with not too much hops to cover it up.

Aroma is mild hops and sweet malt. Appearance is dark copper with small tan head. Taste is nice aroma hops forward, grapefruit, with hops bitterness as well. Malt is present as well, but hops is just slightly dominant. Palate is medium and grapefruit bitterness lingers. Overall a nice beer.

Light aroma...maybe my nose is just stuffed. refreshing until halfway through sip then strong bitterness. Light lacing all around.

I hate to report that this is the first brew from Stone that I though was sub-par in anyway. The color is a deep amber, why not call it what it is,... an amber, and the hop character was,... non-existent. Very unimpressive and so many of you rated it really well. I hope it is not due to a certain expectation of rating for this brewer.

Copper color with no head. Grainy aroma with a slight hop end. The taste is overwhelemed with a bland grain smoothie-like taste. Some earthy hops, but not enough to counteract the bad part. Disappointing.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2006
pours medium orange and clear. Small frothy off-white head. Aroma is lightly malty of cookies, and heavy on the hopps ... grapefruit. Flavor starts balanced but unfortunatly ends very bitter with a long aftertaste of hopps. Medium bodied watery and oily and softly carbonated. Not refreshing or clean.

Very disapointed with stone on this one. Aroma was of mild citrus and floral hops and i meal very mild. Not much hops in the flavor with maybe a slightly buttery taste. Maybe this was just a bad bottle or something but the first bad beer i have had from stone.

Amber body, minimal aroma. Well, it looks nice. Bland flavor, boring, overpriced beer.
