Label claims ’All Grain, no Sugars added’, for what it’s worth. I don’t know if they’re claiming no adjuncts or not - that’s a bit iffy. Taste was actually pleasant, if a bit too light - Tart, sweet apples, dry finish. medium thick body, but overcarbonated, esp. considering there was no head and little lacing.

draught at the Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival (it was the only beer they had i’d not tried). I’m not rating this beer horribly low because of one reason..out of the tap, this beer had a very nice bitterness reminiscent of a pale ale. otherwise, it’s fairly ordinary

Smells sweet, pale yellow, fluffy head. Off tasting malt, little bitterness, run of the mill.

i had this years ago when i lived in rural Ohio and enjoyed it’s ’blue collar’ appeal, I hope it survives the canalbalizing efforts of the monster brewers in this country

Western Pa’s little secret, Great to see a small brewery putting out a quality product that inexpensive. My favorite Stoney’s comes in the 16 ounce ’keg’ bottles.

Beer Guy99 (250) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2001
Typical of a standard domestic lager but there’s enough extra depth and flavor to give Stoney’s an edge over the mass-produced domestic lagers from the giants. If Bud is your beer, why not buy Stoney’s...it’s better is every respect but close enough to your familiar style of beer to keep you happy. I’d much rather support little Jone’s Brewing Company than the giants who are trying hard to kill these little breweries. Not a bad product but I would like to see them eliminate the adjuncts and go all malt.

I live a couple miles away from th brewery within the area of its popularity. I’ve thought of this as the Gewurztraminer of beers since many people either hate or love the beer. I always heard it was terrible until I actually tried it, and I thought that it isn’t bad. Of all the lower standard American beers, this ranks as my favorite.

pale yellow colour, few head, carton-like aroma, fresh, flat with a persistent plastic aftertaste.
