Stone’s 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 Stone’s 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. jonsack3399 (8) - El Cajon, California, USA - FEB 1, 2002 does not count

This is a tones down version of the IPA. Different than most other pales I have tried. I like to great aroma and flavor of this beer. It has a fuller body than most pales (which I like). Malty sweet undertones. All around great beer. HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2002

garnet burgandy color,excellent aroma smells of cotton candy. Malty thick and rich drank slightly below cellar temperature. Finish is unique nutty & malty.Very complex ale I would not have believed it was less than 8% ABV, maybe its Double Bastards Little brother--Mini Bastard. This beer is as balanced as any I have had. I wish a few cases could be sent this way, I would stock up. Reminds of mixing a Barley Wine with an traditional Pale Ale, this is in no way a traditional Pale Ale, though it absolutely is a top 50 beer. Highly Recommended, special thanks go out to Mr.ArrogantBastard for sending this superb well crafted beer. myfriendbubba (40) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Very good beer have some on tap at local watering holes but big casinos need to start carrying this, also available by the bottle at Lee’s discount Liquor the chain all around vegas. Very clear straw color bordering on copper. moerate flowers on nose white rocky head. full body Initail fruity malt flavor turning a perfect bitter. long finish great brew. bethmatt0421 (337) - Covington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Soft floral aroma. Copper in color with a thin frothy white head. Flavor is Floral hops, faint fruits and a simple, but sweet sharpness to it. Not long and drawn out hoppiness, like the IPA. The malts are good as well. I expected it to be just a little brother of the IPA, but this brew has characteristics of its own. Damn good! green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 24, 2007
Never seen this on the east coast before. Hope its here to stay. Unexpected flavors, caramel but not sweet, with a touch of bitterness, like an Arrogant Bastard Lite. Has significant body, almost cask ale like and overall very well balanced. Just a fantastic and original interpretation of pale ale. bbp182 (255) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2007
I had this beer at Isacc Newtons in Newtown PA. The appearance is a dark amber. The aroma is bitter, very pleasent. Not too overwhelming. For a pale ale, it’s very hoppy. Smooth, good beer. Best Pale Ale so far.
