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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I once had made a chair out of all the cases of returnables when I was in grad school at Slippery Rock. I must admit that there were one or two cases of Iron City mixed in with the rest. compared to the acid mine drainage water that flowed from every water tap in the county this stuff was the elixer of life in that area. Had one run me down this memory lane last night as my father bought a case of it for a change. Some people change....most people don’t. This beer has not. Color nose and taste of straw. light body that is quite consumable and the 16.oz bottles stay put in the beverage holder of the lawnmower.
