COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Contract brewed for Jones Brewing Co.

A smooth refreshing all grain beer. This beer is brewed and aged the natural, costlier way. Using the finest barley, malt, selected grains and hops to produce a smooth and refreshing Stoney’s beer.

In the bottle. This is my favorite beer made by this brewer. Sure, it is a typical pale lager style- yellow, white head, fizzy. There seems to be a slight bit more maly flavor to Stoney’s than the other lines. Plus, the returnable 16 oz bottles that I stupidly destroyed in the autoclave were awesome.

This is one of those beers that is in the back of your dads workfridge or around your grandpas shop in the burgh. A decent beer for a cheap price just close your eyes and throw them back. I remember hearing a story of one Pittsburgher drinkin 100 Stoneys Pony bottles. Oh well im done with my rant.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 This is a rerate because I’m really disappointed in the "new" Stoneys beer. It’s not nearly as good as when it was made by Iron City. Where Iron kept to the original recipe for the most part, this contract brew is just a run of the mill macro: more watery, less flavor, drier and less drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Pale straw color with not much head. Faint sweet malt aroma. The taste was a surprisingly well balanced mix of hops and malt with a slightly sweet yet metallic finish. Not too bad. Got to support the local beer.

Homebrewers and oldtimers will sometimes talk about a style called a Classic American Pilsner--what American beer tasted like before the entire industry became dominated by three colossal corporate entities. This is what I always imagined it tasted like. The flavor was definitely tilted toward the hops a bit more than most cheap lagers and it actually had a discernible Saaz character. The carbonation was crisp and clean though there was maybe the slightest hint of metallic off note. I like it. I’’d buy this classic Pennsylvania brew more often if was available at my classic Illinois beer store.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2004 Not bad, not great. Better than Iron Shitty or Rolling Rock as far a western PA brews go. Like a really good Budweiser (oxymoron huh?) The sixer i bought was worth every bit the 2.99 i spent on it.

Tastes like your Dad's beer when you would steal a sip as a kid. Specimen colored - no head, faint fruity aroma. Bland, middle of the road flavor - not leaning towards either hops or malt. Did not expect much - but better than expected, nothing offensive - little metallic in the aftertaste.

Malty and a little fruity aroma. Medium gold. Decent cheap regional. A little sweet, a little Saazy a little tart. Palate doesn't cling, medium-light body.

As I was drinking this, someone walked up and called it the "diabetic beer." No sugar added, etc. Not bad.
