COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone & Wood Pale Lager has a sparkling light colour, and a flavour that strikes a fine balance between its subtle hop aroma and full malt palate with a soft clean finish.

very disappointing beer. The appearance is deceiving there is pretty much no flavour what so ever. Just amber and bubbles. Definitely pass on this one.

Green bottle with white block lettering, the ampersand links the words ’stone’ and ’wood’. A PALE LAGER, FROM AUSTRALIA. It pours clear pale straw. Nil hops. Nice and bland. "Not offensive", that’s a POSITIVE! What’s the point? CUB and Lion Nathan already dominate this market.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2011
After a fizzing pop the beer pours lovely and golden with a loosly packed white foam. Strong yeasty and unpleasent alcoholic aromas dominate. The beer is lightly bodied and slightly watery. Its flavour is sweet and theres really not much else. This lager certainly lacks imagination.

ALLOVATE (2356) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2011
Out the bottle, chilled and into a pilsner glass. Big burst once the cap comes off sees it rise up and out. Very lively on the pour too. A few minutes later and I have a bright medium gold lager with a mixed bag of bubbles raising up little more than a single loose layer of white suds. Dry, grassy hop, mildly vegetal nose with a good whack of fresh cracked, black pepper and a hint of lemony sour malt and barnyard grit (Australia’s first original Euro-lager on the nose!). Dry palate with a herbal zing to it. Mildly bitter, metallic POR-like swallow, dusty, with some cardboardy malt. Body is light, watery, well-lagered with some fizz. Metallic aftertaste lingers. Not too good at all really. They captured a little ’VB’ and ’Crown’ in the flavour of this one, hopefully intentionally to justify its all Aussie macro taste, despite the Euro-trash aroma. Hmmm!!

Pyobon (900) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle. Clear pale straw colour with decent white head. Vegetably hop aroma. Light body and fizzy. Tangy lemony start, followed by slightly sweet maltiness with a slightly bitter finish that is unpleasantly harsh. Mostly bland, but the flavour that is there is poor. Overall bland, unimpressive, but ultimately drinkable.

mkel07 (3141) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2010
330ml bottle. Clear and amber in colour with goosd carbonation and an audible crackle as the pillow of fluffy white foam settles. Hop aroma with an underlying hint mof sweetness. Lively in the mouth with a mild bitterness, easy drinking.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2010
Draught. A solid lager without much to add. I am sure if pleases the punters during mid summer.

bmeup (509) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2010
Pale yellow gold & clear. Thin white head, fades. Very ordinary like a dry beer, the tide went out and took everything with it. Over priced standard lager.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2010
Bottle - Sickly pale gold colour. Very thin white head. High carbonation. Thin body. Watery taste. There are mass produced lagers better than this. High in gas and bland in taste Makes this lager one big waste
