Down to my last 2 of a case of this one a realized i've reviewed yet so even though it's a little old here it goes.

Cloudy light gold appearance tha is actually somewhat blah for a stone brew. Big bubbled head that trails a few clumps of lace behind but nothing really special.

Faint citrus smells but maybe more like mango than strong grapefruit. Some honey sweetness appears also. Some musty earthyness also.

Taste is cloying sweetness upfront tha shows the bite of the alcohol. No fruitiness in the taste, i get more of earthy, slightly piney bitterness.

Full body on this one gives it some real meat. This is a big heavy beer.

Overall not the best of the Stone Anniversary beers but still better than most that you can get your hands on. Even the worst Stone is a treat that i will never turn down.
