COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stock ales were once common among America’s family run breweries. 6th Generation Stock Ale features a unique blend of Pearl, Tipple, Crystal and Maris Otter malts from the venerable British malt house, Muntons. Using only hops from Oregon, mostly grown by Goschie Farms in the Williamette Valley, include Mt. Hood, Sterling and whole-cone Liberty hops. Our hopjack provides a brief scalding of the whole-cone Liberty hops to preserve their signature flavor in its purest form. 35 IBUs and our special milling and endosperm mashing process make for a smooth and refreshing ale.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s, of the squat variety. Pours clear light copper with minimal off-white head and no carbonation. Nose is mild hops, vegetal, caramel, citrus. Tastes of hops, with a caramel and vegetal flavor. This one is rather uninspiring, as such.

N3lson1 (168) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Aromas and taste of dark malts. This beer tastes like a generic cheap small market beer.

jmm635 (855) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Copper color with a bubbly head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and fresh grain. Underlying hop aroma. Well balanced flavor with a late hop bite. Pretty solid but ultimately forgettable.

beerbill (3384) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2013
On draught at The Pour House in Mountainhome, PA. Arrivd to the table a clear burnished gold with a sudsy white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. No real discernible aroma to speak of. The flavor is malt with some citrus hops at the finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with no head. The aroma is light caramel and some citrus. The taste is caramel and slightly hoppy on the finish.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pretty solid microbrew. Malty ale dark hue. Crisp finish with only a slight hop bite. Bubbly and great with a nice steak.

Pretty average. Has a clean body, some faint mild hops with a bit of a grain in the flavor

Clear medium amber with a full head that slowly reduces to the rim, thin streaks of lace. Taste is a cleansing caramel malt that concedes to a light, clean hop bittering at the finish. Actually, even though it is an easy-going "Stock Ale," it is satisfying in a way in which most ales miss the mark, making it an ale that is "worth searching out" that "nobody ever heard of." I could drink a lot of these - how unfortunate I’ve only got one.
