Excellent example of a fine American-style pale ale. Nice malty body with plenty of hops that more than balance the flavor.

(bottle) Yum. I thought that I had had this one before, but I guess not. This is a vrey nicely made pale ale. Nicely hopped that can be sensed in the aroma and taste.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2006 Pale Ales do not get much better then this. Pours a beautiful dark amber color with a creamy head with exceptional lacing for a Pale Ale. The aroma begins weak but gets stronger with a nice maltiness to it along with citrus, caramel, honey and orange. The taste has a great amount of hops which result in a great mouthfeel. I love the biterness in this Pale Ale it makes it better versus being overdone like some beers. The aftertaste is so long lasting for a Pale Ale and feels great on the tongue. I would have to say this is the best Pale Ale I’ve had to date.

I had this beer at Isacc Newtons in Newtown PA. The appearance is a dark amber. The aroma is bitter, very pleasent. Not too overwhelming. For a pale ale, it’s very hoppy. Smooth, good beer. Best Pale Ale so far.

my favorite beer from the stone brew and probably my favorite pale ale that you can get. not overly malty or hopped just right for a perfect ale that could be drank with any food at any time of year. little darker color with a nice foam head that just calls to you as you pour it into your favorite glass. if i had a little bit more money i would probably have a big stock pile of this beer at all times just waiting to be drank.

Bottle - Amber pour, white head. One of my favorite styles. Good citrus, hop aroma. Citrusy, fruity, hoppy, malty, good to the last drop-e. I can never get this in my state, but via friends and neighbors or friends of neighbors (Texas) maybe I can get some more of Stone Brewing’s sweet nectars.

Pours a dark amber with a very light tan head. Nose is of perfumed hops with the expected citrus head. Really a heavy perfume fragrance throughout. Flavor is consistently bitter in a smooth way. On the tail end a sweeter side appears. Feel has a decent carbonation, but overall feels a little bit thin; but still overall is extremely good. Great drink ability. Damn you, Stone.

Something else stands out every time I drink this beer. One day, it’s the mild hoppy flavor. Another day it’s the light-malt roastiness. Sometimes, both. Either way, delicious, very balanced beer. Pours red with a very light head.
