Poobah (295) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Amber with a thin head and some lacing. Hoppy nose. Easy entry with a mild mouthfeel and a hoppy finish. Well- balanced.

ANJELICA (4) - brighton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 23, 2015 does not count
just discovering pale ales vs ipas. IPAs hit you over the head with hops (which I love), but pale ales let you enjoy the other elements as well. Stone Pale ale gives you a great malt nose and a hop finish. My favorite Pale Ale so far.

alberti92 (56) - - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a rich amber with a slight white head leaving some nice lacing. Smell is rich malty goodness with hints of caramel and subtle citrus notes. Carbonation is mild and it's fairly light bodied. Taste is very malt forward. Rich toffee notes with a slight citrus backing make for a delightful pale!

Amber. Delicious pale ale. Sourdough bread crust. Caramel. Bitter citrus. Bold.

maekchu (2336) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Fruity nose, light grassy hop, caramel (, and some fumes!?). Clear orange/amber color, thin white head, and some lace. Thin malty initial, very gentle hopping -- which intensifies in mid palate, hints of orange peel. Medium body. Maybe this isn’t in the best condition? Or is it supposed to taste this ... aged?

Butters (3869) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2014
How this rating eluded me for so many years I will never know. Clear amber dark copper pour with thin soapy near white head. Smells old metallic and malty, slightly sweet. Hoppiness comes on the flavor with a floral bitter earthiness. Maybe it will be better fresh, but this is pretty uninspiring.

ARH (612) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. Mild caramel and citrus aromas come through with some grass character. The beer is a copper, oily color with an off-white, soapy head retaining a medium ring and leaving a light, speckled lace. The taste is a medium-high bitter and a medium sweet. It’s waxy with a fuzzy carbonation. The medium body has flavors of caramel and citrus with a resin bitter finish. A chalky and waxy aftertaste lingers and ends with a clean, dry pine touch.

dslam (81) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Poured from a 20oz bottle. Dark amber color with a lot of head. The active carbonation provides consistent head and a flurry of bubbles that dance their way to the top. The first sip brings flavors of malt and a bite that lasts as it has a fairly bitter finish.

Obfuscate (133) - Minneapolis, - DEC 4, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 This is the only year round Stone release I’ve never tried because I never seen one fresh where I shop in MN until today. Light hops, light bitterness, good malts, easy to drink. Solid but not my favorite pale ale.
