For a very long time it was difficult to get Stone Pale Ale in our area and the reason we were given was the shipping. When I finally got some I must admit I was underwhelmed. It was good, but it didn’t really trip my trigger. Recently I purchased a bottle of Stone Pale Ale 2.0 and guess what, I found it almost as boring as the previous version. The bottle speaks of Madarina Bavaria hops, but the website also lists Magnum and Herkules. No matter what they put in there they just didn’t do it for me. The beer is underwhelming and the only attribute I can point to in the 6.0% ABV beer is it was quite sessionable, mainly because it was boring. Skip it unless you find it on clearance, there are better pale ales on the market.
