After all those years of ridicule for fizzy yellow light beers, this is basically Stone's foray into the very territory they marketed themselves against or raged against the machine if you will. Pours in between a dark gold and light copper color, 3/4" white head. Aroma was the least hoppy Stone beer ever.

Taste was better, even though light, it manages to be flavorful. Its a very drinkable beer with pale honey malt and some c hops. Still actually comes in with some red vienna like sweetness malt wise. Its not a bad thing to have around for a guest.

Tried in a stone 12-pack. A very underrated beer in my opinion. A nice light counterpoint to Stone's typically uncompromisingly hoppy offerings, and one that takes a lighter tack without compromising on the nuance of its flavor profile.
