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.

A very nice beer good head with lots of lace. Lots of hop flavor and not overy carbonated.

Paid $1.19 for a 12-oz single. Cloudy, unfiltered golden-amber, with a large head, that lasts and laces. This is a nice looking pale ale!! Bittersweet citrus in the nose, with hints of a strange floral sweetness buried deep down. A nice, smooth pink grapefruit, ornage, and floral flavor. I'm impressed. A bit thin in the carbonation, but not bad. This is a really good brew. I'd definitely have this again.

(Draft) Not usually a big fan of Pale Ales but I have to admit this is one of the best I have tried. Unfiltered, the hop aroma is great with a smooth balanced finish. Worth the drive to Detroit.

Grapefruit, cinnamon, flowers in the nose. Looks like a muddy orange beer with white head. Dry beer with a normal pale ale flavor, nice bitterness. Nicer pale ale than the geary’s that I just tried. Almost has a floral flavor as well. Not bad at all.

Poured a cloudy golden copper color with a modest white head. The nose was of fruity citric hops, with nice touches of vanilla, honey and pale malt. The taste echoes the aroma. It begins with a nice orange zest citric fruitiness. Then the malted grain appears midway through and adds a nice dimension of balance to the malts and hops. The finish is clean with pleasant floral hops lingering around. Light residual sugars add to the enjoyment. The amount of alcohol is more than appropriate to make it a good session ale. A damn fine beer.

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.

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.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Had this beer on 4/9/07. Aroma is light with a sweet hop scent. Color is a hazy gold with very active carbonation and a nice big bubble head. Taste is crisp and hoppy. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a fizzy feel. Finish comes on with a bitterness biting at the sides of your tongue and a very light malt flavor. On the end is a bright hop flavor and a nice finishing bitterness. This is one nice hoppy brew.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2004 Smells hoppy and with a touch of yeast. Light orange with some amber hues. moderately cloudy. Small white head. Begins with a big full Pacif NW hops flavor with alot of warm orange alcohol tones. Has a nice clean body, medium full and ends with a dissipating flavor. A well balanced/constructed beer. Has some nice yeast/malt complexity in the finish that brings out a bitter, fuzzy sensation. Has a nice biscuity flavor as well. Great beer overall. Thanks again to Sierra Nevada which made all beers like this possible. Rerate. 2004 draught. Still a nice cascades hops flavor and a decent malt, but finish is short and seems lifeless. Weird, what's going on here? This last visit has me downgrading all of their beers.
