UPDATED: JAN 20, 2004 I had a Lagunitas IPA 12oz bottle and a Bell's Two Hearted IPA 12oz bottle (bland 2003 version) before drinking this stuff... I think the bitterness of these two really brought out the better side of the Stoney Red. Now for the beer. The pour was good. Full and foamy... but not overly exhuberant. Lacing was soft and even all the way down... nice. Aroma is grainy and malty. Flavor mimics the aroma very closely, loads of grain and malt with a persistent malt aftertaste. Body is somewhat thin and watery, but this is to be expected for a 5.0% ABV beverage. This is not really a negative in that the flavor profile remains strong throughout. Overall, this is a killer brew. One of the few that really pushes the red ale style to new and interesting heights. Perhaps Stoney Creek can pump out some specialty versions that round out the body.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 I remember the sweet, malty finish the best. A copper-tone brew with a marginal head and adequate carbonation, it was a scratchy-red mouth-feel, a touch of sweetness. I need to try this again at a later date.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2003
This brew poured basically no head. There was no lacing present. The body was red. To me it had a fruity, sweet aroma. It was a smooth drinking brew. There was no bitterness or aftertaste noted.

jimhilt (2387) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Pours with a two fingered frothy off-white head that leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation. Color is on the clear side of amber. On the sweet side but just barely. Starts smooth with some malt and finishes with a little hoppy bitterness.

Aroma was a bit decieving, but all-in-all not a bad red. I'd choose it over Killians any day!

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 I like this brew, but the nose is annoying and musky. A caramel sweetness is present and the piney and fruity hops are mild, but this beer is more defined by its higher than average carbonation and thus fizzy mouthfeel. It is unfiltered and a bit of a hazy red. There’s a bit of a yeastiness in there also.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Nice reddish copper color with a diminishing white head. Light in body, good balance of maltiness with an actual hop balance. Crisp and good, but fully middle of the road.

alcoholica (128) - Dublin, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Amber color, decent head,malty and fruity flavor. Mild hops. Pretty good beer.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Light red color with a medium beige head. Aroma is bready and a little fruity. Flavor is sweet, caramel, tangy and fruity.
