Slightly darker gold than your average pale ale, this one comes in at 1/2" white head. Aroma is tame, least hoppy anything that says pale ale anywhere in the name for Stone.

Taste, funny, its mild, average hopping. More malt. What a throwback to the 90s. Still better than your average option at your average bar. Believe dat.

Stone Pale Ale -brewed by Stone Brewing Co., with an ABV of 5.40% This brew pours out a nice,deep, golden amber color , with a nice white head. I really like the look of this brew. The smell of this pale ale is rich with hops, grins and malts. There is a nice amount of hops in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste , it is bold with flavors. You fisrt pick up on th hops in tis brew. Then you pick up on the nice smoothness of grains and malts. This brew has the look and smell of most pale ales o te market. I'm not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the tases , it is bold with flavors. You pick up on the , the hops aty first them the nice smoothest of grains and malts. Stone Plae ale has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about , this brew. Overall I'm giving Stone Pale Ale, a 4.25 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. Stone Brewing Co. , did a a nic job with this one.
