In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Stone Brewing Company Pale Ale

“Rich bread and caramel/burnt sugar malt flavors underpin a slightly woody, resinous, and crisp hops flavor that’s much more assertive than in the aroma. Bitterness hides just underneath the malt richness, giving support without lingering in the finish. Carb and balance are spot on.”
