A: Looked absolutely amazing. A gorgeous red tint to the deep clear gold color. An impressive two finger head that sets slowly. It has lacing that lasts the entire beer.

S: Earthy and subtle.

T: A very earthy and easy pale ale. It has just enough kick.

M: I think this was well blended. The beer was a little oily feeling. Pretty clean finish.

Considering the Stone IPA is one of my favorite brews, the Stone Pale Ale is rather uneventful.

Pours a reddish brown color with little head from the bottle. Smell is caramel and subtle hops. A little yeast in the taste.

Mouthfeel is smooth and well balanced...

Overall, a nice pale ale but it could some more hops.

Pours copper with one finger white head. Aroma is nicely floral, with a nice citrus and strong malt backbone. Bittersweet finish with the hops follows an up front sweetness, toffee, biscuits, fruits, hint of citrus and mango. Easy drinking, medium carbonation, slightly resiny. Good example of the style. Nice beer.

A hazy amber brew, an off-white head with little lacing and good curtains.

Smelling of porridge, syrup, grass and pine.

Starting with toffee and sweet bread, black currant, some grape-fruit peel.

Little carbonation, small bubbles, soft with a medium body, slightly dry.

Good balance, good craft!
