Pours a light copper. The head went away too quickly. The smell is faint. Malt, no hops. Real fruity, almost like apple juice or something. The taste is odd. Super malty to me, and the afore mentioned fruit is there in a big way. There is an OK hop bite on the finish, but it’s nothing to write home about.
Oh well, it’s one more that I have tried, but I won’t pick it up again. I can’t put my finger on it. It’s not that it’s that bad, but I just don’t really like anything about it.

Pours a nice amber color with a thin head. Aroma is super sweet malt a little bit of hops. Flavor is sweet lightly hoppy and completely unremarkable. Not anything to write home about. BeerFanDan17 (1120) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Nice American style organic pale ale from AB. Smooth yet good balance of hops and malt. No aftertaste whatsoever.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a thin head. Sweet malty aroma. The flavor is well balanced with alight sweetness and a hint of floral hops. Not bad. drowland (8766) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is sweet, fruity, and citrusy. The flavor is the same but with a strange dry metal taste mixed in. thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2009
12oz bottle: appearance is med brown with small white head, aroma of malt with a hint of hops, flavor is mostly pale malt and a hint of caramel and hops, decent beer but i bought it thinking it was made in New Hampshire! RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Fairly pronounced caramel aroma. Flavor definitely dominated by malt rather than hops. Simple and slightly papery (might not have been the freshest bottle). Decent but unremarkable. ben4321 (6514) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2009
To review this beer I will just modify the commercial description from above...
To craft a remarkable Pale Ale, you must begin with the finest ingredients. Stone Mill Pale Ale is made with 100% organic barley malt, certified by the USDA for a classic taste that is the perfect balance of maltiness and hop bouqet. To craft a mediocre Pale Ale you should just do what we did.
