Deep amber body w/ creamy tan head that leaves behind excellent lacing. Caramel malt & floral nose. Flavors of caramel malt & hop finish.

Well, it’s the worst of Stone’s offerings, but thats not a bad thing overall. A great drinkable beer indeed. If there was a Top 10 list of beers under 5% ABV this one would be on top for sure.

A good beer all around. A nice heavy head with a body to compliment. Not a strong a aroma, but rather faint. It falls a little short. Great flavor.

really good, tasted similar to an IPA which is good in my book. I would try this again, can’t believe the abv is 4, tasted much boozier

12oz. bottle. 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. There are some things to like here, but this turns out to be one of Stone’s weakest offerings.

HoppyAlesToYou (167) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2009
My main impression from this was tea leaves. Kind of like a light version of Three Floyds Alpha King. Amazing flavor for an ABV of only 4.4%. It would be a fantastic session beer, yet flavorful enough to satiate in a 12 ounce dose.

Very dark, almost brown ale colored, nice fluffy head. Some lacing. A slight malty maybe some citrus aroma with a interesting woody aroma and taste, different! Typically Stone, i feel a little hop aftertaste. Compared too ALL other stones, this is pretty light, maybe a session beer. Alas, not typically available around here, otherwise might consider it for my "light" choice, Fine Stone offering.

12 oz bottle. Nice amber color and head. Citrus hop in the aroma and taste, with a maltier backbone than I expected, but I was told this was an APA rather than an Amber. Lightest beer I’ve had from Stone, but yet another winner.

alraicercsu (166) - Ft.Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2008
Bottle. Poured a dark copper with a tall but light beige head. A nice floral aroma with a nice hoppy finish.

4.3
jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2005
Releases a caramel malty sweetness with a touch of piney hops. A nice tan head forms with a creatory head possessing medium sized bubbles. A nice light mahogany colored body. Wow what an amber. A lot of the ambers I’ve had have no balls. This has a stern smokey sweet maltiness with a nice hop backbone. Once again, Stone does not disipoint!
