brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: A dark amber/copper color with a thin whitish head. S: Light grapefruit and caramel malts. T: Initially a decent citrus flavor followed by caramel maltiness and a floral and bitter finish. M: Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, not much carbonation. D: The lightest of all the Stone brews, but not my favorite taste-wise.

FatPhil (15129) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 26, 2012
355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
Drunk at 6am just outside the security checkpoint at Stansted Airport, as we couldnt take it with us thanks to the fucking TSA and European spinelessness. Dark, clear woody brown like a dunkel. Good beige head, with great retention. Simple dry woody and nutty. Very English in style, a million miles removed from what I consider an "Amber Ale" (namely something sweet, sticky, and incipid). Taste follows the aroma. This is more like a northern brown bitter or even an old ale, but without any of the sourness that sometimes tags along with those monikers. This may be a very simple beer, but it is very tasty and very drinkable.
