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.

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.

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

13-Jan-11 (16-oz bottle: BevMo in Solana Beach, CA) Glad I didn’t have to buy this one to try it. It’s actually not as dreadfully offensive as I expected, mostly because the beer doesn’t taste or smell like wet cardboard. Nothing like a fresh Stoney’s, huh? The beer pours clear, straw-colored into the glass with half an inch of white foam that settles to a patchy film and wide ring that manages to leave a small ring of lace at the top of the glass. It’s supposedly an all-grain lager, but it tastes honey-sweet with flavors of corn, rice, and dough, and no real hops character either. It’s hard to imagine an all-grain beer tasting like this, though. Or smelling like this either; sweet corn, rice, sweet bread, and hay in the nose. Light bodied with prickly, medium-plus carbonation, but because the beer is sweet and bready, and has no complementary hops for balance, the beer is absolutely not refreshing, and in fact, I feel a strong need to go brush my teeth to relieve the stale mouthfeel. So if it’s not refreshing and doesn’t taste good, there’s only one reason to drink it: to get your cheap drunk on. I’d rather drink water, thanks.

Unpleasant, has a strong soapy taste with a taste of bad vegetables. Light tasting and nothing special. Not much else

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.

Can from Whip-In. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is a little sweet corn and grassy. Taste is very metallic, light, and grainy. Not as bad as it could have been, I guess.

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.

Golden copper color with a light rim head and no lace, light ascending carbonation bubbles. The taste is caramel malt cut toward the finish with harsh carbonation. Typical of big box beers, perhaps a little more going on. Probably good for slugging.

Morgan’s tasting, 07MAR09. 12 oz bottle. Pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Light grain and a bit of floral hop. Meh - very forgettable.

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.
