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.

Capa (2240) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Yellow with a white head. Lightly hopped, earthy, light toasted malts, slightly sweet. Not a lot going on here but htere is nothing wrong with this beer. Well brewed, just a little boring.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2015 aroma is bread crust, earth, and grass maybe some citrus rind- flavor is faint caramel, old bread, grains and earthy, bitter hops -- overall, grainy and bitter - if its historical, im just not privy...next...

Bulk_Carrier (2593) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass because I thought it was an American Pale ale and actually smelling and tasting it, I believe it is one. The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white head gently dissipating leaving some light rings and having a lacing running here and there. The smell had a light spritzy citrus bitter hops leading into a decent caramel maltiness. The taste took those flavors and made it fairly sweet and earthy. A light toastiness adds itself in there as well. A combined citrusy and earthy aftertaste leads itself into a balanced wet to dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style as there was a decent harshness but nothing controlling. Overall, I say this was a good APA that I could have again.

pet3rman (361) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma interesting: getting some stale chocolate, malt, mash and grass. Very acidic. Bitterness up front. I wouldn’t call it smooth, although it doesn’t need to be... It just doesn’t have much else going on.

60minuteman (1007) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Opaque light brown pour from bottle. Aroma of caramel malts and metal. Flavor is malty and sugary. Backed with piney hop. A good one to pound in a big mug.

N3lson1 (415) - 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.

Lightrider (316) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a honey amber on the dark side. Aroma is very low but malt. Taste is a bitter malt with a slightly bitter hint. Finish is clean.

alobar (3024) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours a clear copper color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of grain and some caramel. Grain flavor with some caramel sweetness and a slight hop bitterness. Solid lacing and a crisp finish.

jmm635 (926) - 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 (3564) - 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.
