Clean, crisp and refreshing with significantly less hop than the IPA. I would say this was even a bit malty for a pale ale but it was also very enjoyable. Notes of caramel malt with a nice balancing citrusy hop.

On tap at Flying Saucer, Addison. Dark, shiny amber, sweet toasty bread herbal aroma with a roasted rich perfectly hopped and nicely balanced resiny-clean taste. Lively, exciting mouthfeel, would order again-highly sessionable.

lct-cpr, thin-dense-cm-head, low-med-co2, light-med-body.

aroma: rich biscuity-malt floral-hops barley-wine.

flavor: sweet-malt bright-fruit juicy-leafy-hops T1, sweet-bicuity-malt rich-toasty-malt floral-hops barley-wine-alchl fruity juicy T2, short mild toasty leafy-hop-resin floral-hops diacetyl T3.

comes across as heftier than it really is, almost like a cross between APA and IPA.
makes for a nice session beer.

Great Pale Ale. Perfect balance between hops and malt. Stone has yet to disappoint me. It’s even nicer when you happen upon one of these that you don’t have to pay for (Huge thanks to Jason w/ Stone!)

Probably the best pale ale I’ve ever drank. Beautiful tan yet clear coloring with a milky white head. Drinks incredible smooth with just the right amount of bite. Currently my favorite.

Stones classic, time-tested Pale Ale is as much a treat as it can be an everyday session beer. Well-chilled, its sparkly carbonation combines with the toasty malt body -- and is the case with most of Stones products, adds a nice boost of hoppiness to make a smooth drinkable pale ale.

Excellent pale ale. This beer should be the standard for pale ales. I only wish this beer was more accessible.
