This is just really phenomenal. As it mentions on the bottle, it’s very rare to find a beer with this much flavor and such a low abv. Taste is very big and very well balanced. Big burst of hoppiness, strong roasty malt backbone. Finishes extremely clean and smooth. Slightly above medium thickness, average or a bit higher on bitterness. Really really tasty brew. jrmac (335) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2010
A fine product from our friends at Stone. Big floral hop notes on the nose. On the palate the beer is smooth with a good backbone of bitterness and hop characteristics. The lower alcohol makes this a must for concerts.

Flushed with a tart dark chocolate mouthfeel, Stone’s Levitation Ale is malty and hearty while still retaining a brisk and floral aftertaste. Wafting notes of raspberry and earthy soil bounce off the tongue, creating a sort of richly dessert brew. A caramel head swirls atop the ale’s dark complexion. A little less punchy and strong than other Stone beers, this one is still a nice feather in the company’s hat. stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
My favorite amber ale in the universe. Great malty aroma, with freshness of hops in for good measure. Medium body, with very pleasing bitterness on the finish. One of the finest beers Stone makes. scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2007
I honestly am not very big on the Amber ales but this was a very pleasant surprise. Stone of course has to kick it up a notch and add the hoppsiness that is so great. I could definately find myself drinking this again.

Pours a really deep amber color, topped with an active head that fades fairly quickly. Not a lot of lace. Flat, faintly metallic aroma is not incredibly inviting. Very dry, hoppy flavor for an amber, and not much of a finish. OzarkElmo (329) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle to shaker. Pours a deep amber with medium tan head. Caramel malts on the nose. Medium body and veery smooth on the palate. Tasty but not overbearing, typical of the style. All around a very good beer for sessioning. Superior quality IMO - cheers! Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Pours on the red side of amber with a tight white head. Bitter grapefruit peel perfume assaults the nose with touch of sweet malt in the background. This beer is very heady to say the least. As with many Stone brews this is very hop forward and not very apologetic. A wall of dried citrus hop spice dominates a lightly sweet malt with touch of toast. Exceptionally clean finish, with only the driest of hop flavors sticking around. Excellent session beer, this should be a standard goal of any local brewing outfit. 92 RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle poured an amber with a small beige head and minimal lacing. Aroma of pine, caramel malt, and citrus. Taste is bready malt upfront followed by caramel and resin hops. Limited mouthfeel and slight bitterness lingering after each sip. Love Stone, just not amber ales.
