Impressive beer for what it is - definitely sessionable, low ABV, but excellent flavor for this category. The deeper flavor reminds of some of the English pale ales yet low ABV. Definite hop flavor but they are mild and very dry. This beer is not new - at least a year old yet the flavor is still good. Brown to amber color in the glass.

3.71/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Pours a pristine deep amber hue, nearly mahogany, I'd say, with an amber-tinged white head that quickly fades to a creamy cap and retains like a champion. A few wisps of lace remain, but nothing overly impressive... not that I was expecting much from a beer of 4.4%.

S: I wasn't expecting this much of a hop profile, honestly. Some wonderful floral hop aromas mixed with some bready malts. Nothing wild here, but definitely impressive for a session ale.

T: Follows the nose quite closely. Lots of floral hops with just an ever so slight touch of grapefruit. Roasted malts underneath don't provide much sweetness, but add almost a smokiness to the brew.

M: A medium-light body is strange, given the fact that this is a Stone brew, but I guess I should be taking the style into consideration. At only 4.4% ABV, this is a very acceptable brew that offers some silky textures and refined carbonation that allows for superb drinkability. Would serve excellently outdoors in the summer.

O: Stone offers a lovely take on this style, substantially beefing up the hop presence in this style to really add their signature touch on it. While I wouldn't reach for this all the time, it serves as an absolutely perfect beer for BBQs, game night, or just any night when you're looking for great hop flavors in a beer that doesn't weigh you down too much.
