A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy, golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is floral, light malts. Taste is very floral, some spices, light oranges, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

A: fairly hazy; deep gold in color; 2 finger ivory head that receded slowly to a thin cap; very nice lacing;

S: orange, peach, and a hint of spice;

T: earthy up front; floral from the middle through the finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: flavor didn't live up to the aroma; still quite good;

CAN
Pitted taupe froth over tarnished brass. 4
Big lemon chew sweets. 4
Slight toffee, then grapefruit, handy candy, herbal essence, aspirin, + a touch of resin. 4
Lt, oily, round. 4

Loral

San Diego citrus hits heavy, yet this has a light touch. Different again from most Stone - Lemondrop takes the lead. Floaty but mucky. 4

Pours a slightly hazy straw gold, with a nice couple of fingers of head. Decent lacing and retention. The smell is fruity and herbal, and is quite mild. Taste brings a bitter hop to the table, along with some nice malts. A light and well carbonated beer makes for a nice mouthfeel. There is a bit of a peppery finish as well.

A nice refreshing beer. I would have this again (or a few) happily.
