Amber color, small white head, lots of lacing. Smells like loads of hops and some fresh citrus and cedar. Taste like caramel malts and sweet tropical fruits. Clean touch of bitterness in the end. Not near as hoppy as the smell, but the hops are very balanced with the sweetness of the malts. I would like this beer for spring and summer, but would drink it any time.

Bottle. Aroma is strong with citrus and pine. Taste has citrus, pine, some grass. Low alcohol shows a bit as a watery palate, but this is balanced with extra bitterness. Smooth overall with a nice aftertaste. A monster in comparison to the other low-ish alcohol beers.

Dark mahogany color with a large tan head. Very citric hop aroma. Some apricots. Quite bitter flavor. Slightly malty with some roasted notes in back. Light-to-medium bodied. Quite tasty for such a small beer. Nowhere near balanced and that's okay. If sixers of this see distribution to NorCal, it might become my new poker beer. Nice...

Beatuiful deep amber red color similar to DB. Thick deep toffee head. Hoppy up front with plenty malts to even it out. Very mild compared to other stone brews but still strong and hoppy.

A great amber color with no real head when poured from the bottle. It was yeasty in smell and it had a hoppy first taste yet ends bitter/dry. I would almost classify it as a amber ale or and IPA. The more I drank the more I could taste a maltiness.

wildbeercat (359) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2014
355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Crisp, pine hop. A little malt poking through. Appearance: Clear ruby/amber body with a thin off-white cap. Decent lacing. Taste: Nice piney hop. Not too bitter at all. Quite tasty! Palate: Light bodied for sure. A good long finish, though. Ends on citrusy hops. Overall: Underrated. Lower-alcohol, lighter bodied, but doesn’t skimp on flavor at all. Great stuff!

emartell (353) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - NOV 7, 2012
Aroma agradable a pesar de no tener tanta intensidad. Se asoman notas herbales agradables a pino , madera y ligera acidez frutal. En cuanto a la apariencia, cerveza de color ambar con tonos rojizos, carbonatación de media a alta, cuerpo medio y corona de espuma agradable, esponjosa, de buena estructura y de alta retención. En boca es seca, destacando su carbonatación y finalizando con un agradable amargor. Al paladar se percibe una cerveza compleja, de buena estructura, algo densa. La sequedad envuelve la boca tras el primer trago, posteriormente el amargor, por los lupulos utilizados, al pasar por la lengua y llegar a la garganta son los sabores que destacan, sin llegar a ser fuertes y opacar el sabor de la cerveza. En resumen una cerveza compleja y a la vez agaradable. No tan fácil de asimilar por sus maltas y lupulos utilizados. Con un aroma agradable y una vista exquisita. Buena cerveza para pasar de forma agradable una buena noche.

PVC aroma. Amber with off-white little head. Flavour is PVC with slight maltiness cutting through. Thinnish body. Finishes with hoppy bitterness. Not to my taste.

3.6
VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Dark amber body with full,lasting head. Full hoppy aroma of citrus and also a malty background. Flavor is a blend of malt and hops with a citrus and faint caramel notes. Mild bitter hop, lightly metallic aftertaste.

3.8
spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Oades Big Ten Ar: Big citrusy Stone aroma with a bit of burnt sugar. A bit of a strange combo here, but it works. Ap: Slighly hazy amber pour with a 3/4" manila head that dissipates quickly. T: Lots of caramelized/burnt orange peel flavor. Interesting; not quite like anything I’ve ever had before. P: Thin-medium body with a medium level of carbonation. Nice for sessioning. O: Well done. Damn, I love Stone’s <5%ABV beers. If only they weren’t so expensive!
