Dark amber colour with orange tinges throughout and a bubbly white head on top that stays for roughly a minute.

Nice pine hops on the nose, lighter than those of an IPA though. There is some mild citrus and a nice amount of malts coupled with a little spice and mild caramel too.

A good malt base with some caramel, hops and spice thrown on top of it. I also detected a little pine and citrus but not a lot together with some very light grapefruit and a touch of bitter at the end.

Smooth and quite bitter for the style thanks to the pine hops and citrus. The carbonation was slightly above medium and overall the beer had excellent balance, going down great.

This one was a very nice beer and seemed a lot stronger than the 4.4% abv mentioned on the label. I enjoyed it but I think it would prove a little to strong in the bitterness department for me to make it a regular session beer despite the relatively low abv.

From a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A- Pours a reddish-brown color with a mega 3-finger head and lots of rings of lacing.

S-a toffee nose with just a hint of citrus. Is that a sweet and spicy cinnamon as well?

T-it's malty, toffee, but not overly so because there's enough citrus hop flavor for balance.

M-light for its look. There is plenty of carbonation. The flavors last between sips.

O-another winner from Stone, a drinkable [yet hearty @ 4.4%] American Amber Ale.
