Reviewed from notes.

Pours a fairly dark brown color with a good off-white head and some nice lacing. The nose brings forward some light roasted malt plus a really strong amount of citrus and pine hops. Stone sure nails the black ales, even when done as a mild. Flavor isn't quite as pungent, leaving just a bit of roast and a moderate pine presence. Bitterness isn't overpowering, but is definitely noticeable. Light body with good carbonation and a slightly-dry finish. Solid effort, for sure. Cheers to Stone for producing another high-quality low alcohol beer.
