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. lb4lb (2629) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Pours amber with offwhite head. Smell is sticky band aid malt and light hops. Taste is a bit more malty and sticky than necessary with a touch of guaze flavor but with some hops at least. The malt character hurts this beer. Drinkable, but not great. osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma of malts with some hops. Flavor is all hops with a very strange aftertaste. Not good. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Sampled a six pack. Was greatly disppointed ot hear it was a Busch brew. Overall, it was pretty weak and not worth the cost. Pours really pale and goes down decently, but with a funky aftertaste. jgb9348 (6438) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Light golden coloured body with a super thin white head. Aroma of funk, super old and gross hops and a bit of cardboard. Light-bodied; Full of up-front flavour of bitter disgusting hops and gross malt. Aftertaste finishes with more funk, bitter off-flavours and inopportune sweetness and flavours and just generally, bad tastes. Overall, avoid this at all costs, unless for some reason - you like horrible beers. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 10 January 2007.

Could of been stronger, used more kick. Other than that, it was a non-offending pale ale. jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a moderate head. Smells of grain, grass, and orange. Tastes citrusy, grain malts, and followed by some piney hops. Afertaste is very short. Body is a little thin. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Amber in color with a small white head. Aroma is of malt and hops. Taste is of malt, citrus and water. mmmbeer (1428) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2009
12 oz. bottle poured in shaker- poured transparent copper tan, low carbonation, half finger off white head formed but laced very little. Aroma of malt, citrus, and even a note of pine. Hits the mouth with a low thin body, alot of sweetness up front and malt is hard to distinguish from it, deteriorates in the middle and finishes like hard water. Yeah, I knew it was an AB product before hand, and if you didn’t, you can tell on the finish. kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2009
12oz bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a generally clear light amber color with a one finger white tan foamy head that settles slowly. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of citrus, grapefruit, some strange funkiness, yeast, bread, some hints of honey and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with creamy honey notes with some hints of caramel, spice, grass and yeast. Generally light body with a sweet malty and slighty hoppy finish.
