Deep amber body w/ creamy tan head that leaves behind excellent lacing. Caramel malt & floral nose. Flavors of caramel malt & hop finish. Brewmaster (168) - USA - NOV 17, 2002
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. scottmc (167) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2007
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. thefle (167) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2009
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 truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2009
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.

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. redave (166) - squaw valley, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
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. tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2009
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. 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!
