I really enjoyed this brown ale. Nice deep brown color with one finger head when poured into a goblet glass. Earthy, malty, dry hopped but not overpowered by it. Good balance and flavor. Enjoyed this very much and will revisit.

First try of a beer from Stone Brewing. It's okay, apart from some hoppiness there isn't much there. 330ml bottle sampled.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber in color and has a light amount of carbonation with lots of particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high beige head that quickly died down and gradually faded away, leaving rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of citrus hops in the nose (smells of grapefruit stand out in particular) along with some hints of pine resin hops.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has a mild amount of bitterness; there are some hints of caramel malts in the initial taste.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very easy to drink and is quite sessionable given its low alcohol content.

A - Pours a deep amber color with a big 2 inch head that fades to a nice tight cap. Lacing is very good and leaves rings on the glass.

S - Smells of pine tree hops and bready malts.

T - Like others have said this tastes like a toned down Arrogant Bastard. Nice balance of malts and hops.

M - Good carbonaton makes for smooth drinking.

D - This is a very tasty and flavorful beer for it only being 4.4% ABV. This is a nice alternative to Arrogant Bastard for those who are new to Stone or want to take it easy on the bitterness level for the night.
