proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2003
This is a fine pale lager. Back in the mid-90s, the Atwater Block Brewery in Detroit, brewed this beer. Today, the brewery is called "Stoney Creek" and it is good to see this one being brewed again. Pours out to a beautiful gold color in the glass with a generous head. Aroma is that of biscuits and a faint yeast. The taste is very, very good. You can taste and sense the wonderful hop balance in this beer. It is crisp and refreshing and surprisingly lower priced ($5.99/6-Pack) than most micros. This is a fine rendition of a German-style lager.

from the bottle. poured a hazey dark wheat with no head just a small white ring. aroma some malts, honey and light orange and some other sweet fruits. flavor tangeraine with a splash of orange on it than some orange zest qwith a little lemon zing at the finish. I think this is the best pale lager I have had. good lawn mowing beer since I just finished mowing the lawn.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2003
This brew was yellow/gold in color with a minimal head and a ring lacing that lasted a couple of swigs anyway. Mild malty and yeasty dough aroma, sweet. Light to medium bodied, with some soft dinner roll and honey flavors, and a "kiss of the hops" as they say. Just perfectly balanced, fresh and subtle with a smooth and dryish finish.

smells like green apples, nice color, great head--looks and acts like a beer should; a tad watered down and over carbonated.

jsquire (3402) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Golden beer with big white head poured out of a bottle. Very clean drinking beer; almost dry. Full mouthfeel with an almost ale fruitiness to it. Nice hop bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Heavy golden pour with a strong light copper tint. Thick foamy head that settles to a steady 1/2", nice traces of lacing, and a full bodied carbonation. Lightly grassy aroma with a thick fruity scent, sort of like apples and blueberries. I really like the nose on this, sometimes it’s hard to find a lager with an abundant and pleasing aroma. Nice thick body for the style, very creamy with a good bitter finish. Great on the palate except I would discover a random soapiness once in a while throughout the beer. Flavor has a thick pale malt content, nice and grassy. Bitter and fruity hops, this is a well balanced Helles. This is more aggressive than I was expecting, and this is a good thing. Nice lager by this brewer.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Sweet and bready with hints of lime and fruits - great malt flavors. Hops are dry and dirty along the sides of the tongue. This is good stuff.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Light orange gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is grassy and grainy. A medium bodied helles. Malts are grassy and grainy. Hops are mild and citrusy. Touches of fruit and citrus. Perhaps a touch thin tasting. Light and refreshing. Clean and crisp. Nice summer beer. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2003
MIBG Fest: Great Hallertau nose, a little sweet in the aroma also. Good crisp body - slight bitterness; much better than the Stoney Atwater Pilsner I had in bottle form a while back.

TAR (2445) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Speckled pale golden. Large round retentive bubbles. Strawlike aroma of honeyed pale malts, apple skins, white grape and zesty german hop undertones. Round, fizzy mouthfeel. Lightly acidic and dry. Flavors of flowers, phenols, and mustiness, countered by a healthy malt doseage. Finishes sweet, with lots of straw-like malts and lively snappy hops. It's well-balanced, but could benefit from a fuller body and crisper feel.
