Picked this up at stone brewing liberty station
Pour: a nice murky brown ale with a white thick head
Smell: opened the bottle and right away get a great sweet smell of malts
Taste: a great sweet malt flavor just to die for. Sweetness all around with the barley and the breaded malts.
Overall: being unfiltered this is greatness. The sweetness is just perfect no hoppy crazyness in this brew. I really got to sit and really truley enhoy this one.

On tap at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena, CA.
Pours a murky dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, citrus zest, and some herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild roasty and citrus zest bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

1095th Review on BA
Draft to 4oz Taster
App- Mixing interestingly in the glass was a light brown with ambers/golds. Not a spec of head on it or cling.
Smell- Almost identical to Stone 7, which is suprising because of the difference in styles. I did smell more malt vs the soap on this one.
Taste- A really pleasant malty flavor with a small amount of bitter. A bit thick at points but a little bit of citrus crept into it.
Mouth- A lighter medium with a medium high carbonation and some sweetness.
Drink- Just okay. It was a bit all over the place with feel and looks but tasted good. Probably wouldnt want again.
