2.8/5  rDev -10%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear bright copper with a tall white frothy head. Aroma is a little grainy, malty, little to no hops.

Taste is light biscuity crystal malt, just slightly sweet, quite clean. Note that at no time did I mention the presence of hops aroma or flavor. Barely bitter, not really any significant hop flavors.

Mouthfeel is very light to watery. Would make a passable Vienna lager or English bitter, but otherwise quite plain for a beer and quite weak for a pale ale.

3.63/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Clear medium honey, good, head, leaves quick to ring. Some spotty lace.

S - Ghost of hops, mostly sour and light and unappealing.

T - Light malt followed by light hops. Good enough.

M - Balance fair. Good carbonation.

D - Ok, not much here. Yet would be nice served cold on a hot day.

Green Valley's Stone Mill Organic Pale Ale poured a light copper in color with a half inch beige head that reduced to a collar.

The aroma was lightly floral and slightly sweet. No powerful scents here.

The taste was buttery, with small hops and little malt, and as the bottle says, it actually was a nice balance (though not perfect).

The mouth feel was medium bodied, oily and well carbonated.

Drinkability was very good, low ABV and good flavor conspiring to make me want another.

While not one of the all time great beers, I really enjoyed Stone Mill OPA. I'm not sure if the reason this gets such a bad knock is because of the Anheuser-Busch connection. I would definitely try this again.
