Starts with a nice creme colored head atop a deep golden-amber beer. Slightly yeasty aroma that could have been stronger. Tasted flat with some hops, had a watery feel to it and a bitter finish.

Pours a bronze color. Smell is of hops and citrus. Taste is more malty than the smell, some hops, well balanced. Overall a good quality beer.

Good beer. It didnt really strike me as a red ale. Flavorful, good hops, refreshing.

Malty nose overwhelmed by the same strong hops that dominate every Stone release. At this point it's pretty boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

it pours a rich amber color. The hops are evident the second its poured. At first, there is a high citrus note but that goes away as the hops kick in. It doesnt have the most bite of any beer Ive had, but the bite is there for sure! Surprisingly low ABV at 4.4. Great color, great flavor, aggressive but not overwhelming bite, very good lacing.

Kroney (255) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 Pours deep copper/red... minimal head and lacing. Aroma has a nice spicey hop characteristic to go along with the light roasted malt backbone. Flavor starts out all-malt, but has a very nice citrus/spicey hop flavor to balance. At 4.4% abv, this a perfect session beer for people who like more complex flavors. Well done.

Wonderful aroma and solid flavor that isnt too heavy-handed. Good session beer. Also, one of the best-looking bottles, in my opinion.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 19, 2010
Great session beer, but more like an English best bitter, but with US hop character than an American Amber ale. Meh, definitions, its still a tasty beer and great for a session.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Poured an amber color with a medium head. mild citrus hop aroma with heavy malt presence. When I first tasted this I couldnt believe it only had 4.4% alcohol. This is very well balanced and very flavorfull for that type of alcohol content. a mild hoppy flavor with a big rich malt flavor and some caramel notes. Thanks DarkElf!

deep copper amber color. Roasted malts with a sharp hoppy flavor with citrus. Lacking the middle tones flavors.
