COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Ale brewed with the finest crystal malts. Dry hopping with Cascade hops gives this beer a floral hoppy nose and distinct hop finish.

Looks a little cloudy with an orange hue. Thin bodied, finishes slightly bitter with citrus. Drinkable.

Light amber in color with a decent frothy white head. Aroma is very hoppy. Flavor is bitter and vegtable like. A hint of lemon and spices. Pretty good beer.

Malt, meet hops. Shake hands and then come out fighting. The two just don't seem to get along in this beer. Individually, they're nice - malts are sweet and maybe bready, hops are citrus spiced, but they don't meld together well. It's pleasant and drinkable, but it almost seems like I should stir it or shake it up!

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Nice amber color,small head that didn't last to long.The aroma was mildly malty but decently hopped with a nice citrus side to it.The flavor was even less malty but high on the citrus side with a decent hop presence of course,the flavor seemed to be a bit one sided and over done on the citrus.The after taste was much the same as the flavor with a little hop bite.Nothing special but worth trying again and this time i have to try 5 more,i might have to pace myself on this one.

hmm....reminds me of the odor of perspiration. it's as if the hops are ALMOST citrusy, but something is in the way. can definitely taste the crystal malts, and the hops are just too subdued....almost comes off tasting like a corn chip (i swear i'm sober).

Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly malty (cookie), with notes of lemon juice and solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent.

Don't think this was bottle-conditioned, but it sure does look like it. Amber-orange with a lot of haze and a lot of floaties (big chunks, randomly sized). Maybe it's just unfiltered -- not necessarily a bad thing, as far as flavor goes, but not the most appealing. Frothy, thin head. Very citrusy, but not so bitter or acidic. Strong flavors and aromas of grapefruit, orange and lemon exude, from the first whiff to the end of the swallow. Normally I like grapefruit flavors, but this had a synthetic quality to it that I don't really care for. Malts were bready and raw. Had a "dirty feet," earthy yeast flavor, also. Very light bitterness in the finish. Overall, not bad, but not what I like in a pale ale.

A solid Pale Ale offering from Stoney Creek. Pours out to a nice, amber in the glass with a decent head. Aroma is that of pine and light citrus. Taste is quite good, with a generous, but in no way, overdone, amount of hop presence. A quirst-quenching Pale if there ever was one. I've been seeing this more and more around the Detroit area and at $5.99 a 6-pack, Stoney Creek beers are quite the bargain.

(On tap at the 2003 Michigan Brewers Fest)Not so pale, but really pretty good. Orange hues, typical aroma, light eggshell foam. Kind of hoppy, sweet, and quite tasty.

Light orange-amber colour with a LOT of yeastie floaters, which is strange since the description doesn't mention it being unfiltered or bottle conditioned. Aroma is mild & pleasant with floral hops and some yeast notes. Body is a touch on the light side. Flavour holds some good earthy malt in the start, and orange & flowery hops in the finish. A little more understated than I usually like for the style, but it's a well-balanced beer.
