another amber ale courtesy of Saarlander, thanks Aaron. Same appearance as the SA Boston Ale, aroma was similiar as well. the difference came in this one being more well rounded in the flavor profile as compared to the SA being more front loaded in flavor. a pleasant easy drinking beer.

Pour is warm ruby amber with a nice dense tan head...smell is sweet with lots of malty notes but the big suspect here are hops, with citrus and pine being dominant...taste is subtley malty and first but lots of hop bitterness coming out in the finish...good overall...

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 Draft - Nice aroma of citrus and hops. This is a fairly mild, easy to drink brew, but still has a hoppy punch characteristic of Stone brewery. Its not their best effort, but still enjoyable.

Bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>JohnC, thanks John. Beautiful copper in colour, off-white head, nice retention, nice lace. The aroma was of caramel malts, biscuits, some citrus hops as well. The flavour starts off earthy with some caramel, nice citrus hops take hold, some pepper. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes with a lingering light bitterness, dry.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2006
A bit sweeter, and maltier, but from first sip you can tell its a Stone brew, citrus and hops dominate, but I like this one for the mild alcohol, its a great regular drinker!

Pours with a small white head on a dark orange-brown body. Strong aroma of malts and citric hops. Malty taste with citric hops following on a lingering bitter note. Dry medium-thick body.

blankboy (7461) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry. F**k me, this is classified as an Amber Ale?! Its way too good to be an Amber Ale. Pours a clear bubbly dark amber with a large fizzy off-white head. Nice aroma of citrus hops, fruit and caramel malt -- not as hoppy as most Stone beers but it still smells great! Very tasty flavour of nice roasty malt, some fresh citrus hops, caramel and a big bitter aftertaste. Its funny how Stones most commercial beer is still better than many breweries whole line of beers. Very easy to drink, this would make a great session ale.

You cant do much more than this with an amber ale. Light brown and lightly carbonated. There is an aroma of herbal hops that promises a bitter beer. And the flavor is a lot like a bitter, with very light hops and a light malt body.

Bottle: Now this is an amber with charactor; nice nutty caramel and light citrus notes in the nose; well balanced, woody and a hint of chocolate over the dominating toffee, caramel and citrus base; somewhat bitter finish; very good and very drinkable
