COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone Brewing is century old brewing technique revived to create this distinctive and flavorful light bodied beer. Intensely heated Irish stone (700 deg.) are gently lowered into the boiling brew kettle, super heating (for lighter body) the wort and caramelizing some natural malt sugars (for full flavor).

Not a bad beer, kind of along the same lines as Kell’s. Very light bodied, clean and crisp with a butterscotch maltiness with traces of sweet bread crumbs. A very basic light beer, with a lemony zest in the finish. Shows that you can make a decent tasting light beer with quality ingredients.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Pours with a pale yellow body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. Itís slightly sweet and lightly malty with a grassy note and a touch of hops. Light bodied and smooth.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with goldtwins, thanks Larry!) Kind of a lemony citrusy light beer, so at least this isnít a flavorless bottle of water-like substance. Aside from the tart, lemon citrus, and a mild bitterness in the finish, there isnít much else in the flavor. Mostly a citrusy nose as well. Light bodied, and with the tartness, itís pretty clean and refreshing. It pours a cloudy, medium straw color that is topped by an explosive, white head that rises to over two inches and requires several pours to empty the bottle. It settles in a rocky fashion, maintaining a very foamy layer atop the beer, leaving globs of foam on the glass. Nope, donít like it.

Not bad at all for a light beer. Slightly darker than the standard light lager. Simple breadish malt and citric/grassy hop aroma. Low sweetness thorughout with traces of acidity and a light finishing bitterness. Watery and thinnish with decent carbonation. I suppose, if I saw the point of drinking low alcohol / light beers, Iíd pick this up fairly often.

your basic light beer. i wasnít crazy about it but it didnít have a godawful aftertaste like most of em do. instead of being brewed with stones i would have rather been stoned while drinking it.

Stone brewing rules, its been a while since i had one of these styles. This one was a dull yellow color. Had a bit of lemon in the aroma and body at that. I could drink these all day, but at 3.8 percent, what is the point.

Thanks to beeryum for this one. Pours canary with two-finger white head. Aroma of malt, some hopcit, some lemon. Tastes citrusy, with some finishing hops and tart dryness. Somewhat light palate, but refreshing.

For an Ale, itís pretty damn light. For a light beer, itís not bad at all. Taste is light with some corn flavor. Had a raw wood taste like a popsicle stick. Some light bitterness which may be citrus or grass.

Thanx to Beeryum! This was quite good. light and crisp yellow with a fizzy head, did not last. aroma of grapefruit and ginger ale. Sweet but not to sweet. Nice for a light beer.

Golden yellow and highly active. Nice sticky bright wide head. No aroma, really. Flavor is at first a full-on starch, then settles into hints of skunky lemon grass. Disappoints.
