chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2010
12-oz bottle. Ap - Slightly hazy, very deep reddish amber/copper in color with a creamy bone-white head that holds well and leaves some nice lace. Ar - The aroma is limited but offers some light fruit (berries & citrus) and a mild caramel and biscuit notes as well. P - The body is medium with a very fine and gentle carbonation that leaves it surprisingly creamy in the mouth. The flavor starts lightly sweet and fruity, reveals some biscuity caramel malt and bright floral hops as it warms in the mouth, and finishes dry with a lingering sweet & fruity citrus maltiness. True to its Stone heritage, the bitterness lingers well after the malts have gone away. Well balanced. The bitterness is appropriate for the style (Stone claims this beer is in the English pale ale style) but not-overdone and the maltiness & tight carbonation are exquisite. This is a very nice beer and part of a long line of quality beers I had had from Stone. Right up there with Dales pale ale as the best American pale ale I have had.

mice (917) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Kuparinen, punertavanruskea kirkkaahko olut, joka ei vaahtoa juuri lainkaan. Tuoksussa humalaa, havuisuutta, sitruksisuutta sek jokin - ei niin miellyttv - sivutuoksu, josta en saa phni mit se on. Maku mielenkiintoinen yhdistelm karamellista makeutta ja greippist katkeroa. Katkeran greippinen jlkimaku. Keskiasteinen suutuntuma ja sopivasti hiilihappoja.

BeerRenter76 (904) - Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Originally rated on 9/16/08. Another good offering from the Stone brewing co. Thier pale ale pours a deep burnt copper colored body, the head is a little on the thin side though. Aroma of sweet malts and floral hops. Flavor gravitates towards earthy malts and the hops compliment nicely. Overall a pretty fine pale ale.

In short: buttery viscous pale ale.
Pours little hazy deep gold-orange, with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Buttery, bready, ripe fruit nose. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is some sweet, fruity, peachy, still malty, biscuits, buttery. Enjoyable.
