This stone pale ale from poured from a bottle to a chilled glass.
A - Deep amber color. After pouring, it has a off white head about 2 fingers thick. Then the head settles to a thin ring. Lots of lacing with this one. Lots of bubbles floating around in there too. Beautiful looking beer.
S - Faint barley scent, with some citrus hidden in there.
T - The taste isn't bad, but definitely not expected. It has quite a bitter side to it for a pale ale. I get a lot of pine which dissipates and then the citrus flavor comes through. The bitterness stays with you from sip to swallow.
M - Feels bubbly in the mouth but easy to drink. Flavors cover the whole pallet quite nicely. Light to medium bodied.
O - I will probably buy this one again. It really surprised me though because I wasn't expecting the hops to come through like they do. I didn't enjoy the beer much at first, but the more I drink it, its quite good. Not as balanced as it probably could be, but I think thats the style that stone was going for with this one. For a pale ale with a little bite, I recommend. Oh, and the bottles are pretty sweet too.
