P- Als of Hampden

A- a clear copper color with a fluffy two finger head that crests m ypint. Head hangs around for at least 5 minutes.

S- caramel, wood and foral nose.

T- somewhat hoppy but fruity and caramel on the palate for flavor, very nice.

M- smooth and medium bodied. goes down very easy and could get carried away quickly with a sixer.

O- love stone and their brews, another A in my book. Not too much going in the beer but plenty to be a great brew.

Pours a copper color w/ a one finger off white head. Massive lacing on my snifter glass. Somewhat hazy in appearance. The nose is caramel, hops, malt, and some floral notes. A little on the weak side, but improves with warming. The taste is fairly pleasant, with the hops really coming out to balance the malt. Not bitter at all, w/ a smooth aftertaste. I can see putting several of these down after mowing the grass, or any other summer activity. Overall, not a bad beer for the style. Cheers.

Stone Pale Ale has a thin, cream-colored head, a good amount of lacing, and a hazy (after I swirled & poured in the sediment), orange appearance. The aroma is of hops, water, and bready sweetness. Taste is of piney, resinous hops, slight citrus, a little sweetness, and some faint bread. Mouthfeel is soft and medium, and Stone Pale Ale finishes refreshing, easy drinking, and mild. Overall, this is a nice, pleasant ale, and I think you should try it.
