2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Itís been many years since I had a Stoneys, but I thought Iíd rate from memory anway. 16oz bottle pours a golden yellow with a decent white head that diminished quickly, but a thin layer remained throughout. As I recall it had a cornmeal and light hop aroma that was pleasant. Taste was sweet malt, corn grits and some hop bitterness. This was always a very pedestrian american lager, but tasted like they did back 20 to 30 years ago. Better than todayís macros.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear pale yellow white small white head that dissapates quickly. Medium carbonation, a little lacing, and medium/light body. Taste is metallic corn, grass, and a hint of sour hops in the finish. Not horrible, but not good.

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.

Passable, but not anything special going on here. Had a slight saltiness that made the beer palateable. Clean crisp and boring.

Can. Pours a hazy lambent gold with a high, large-grained head. The nose has definite grain, apple, and honey elements. Itís very rich for a pale lager, with a flavor much deeper than I expect from the style. There are elements of sweetness, and a slight metallic hint. Quite good.

On tap at Geneís Place in Oakland (Pittburgh, PA). I always found this beer to taste better on draft than in the bottle. A good old fashion cheap american pale lager.

$15 a case, didnít expect much, was happy with what i purchased, creamy tongue feel, bubbles, easy to drink, hint of malt, kind of a very odd mint like aftertaste

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

Pale gold, brief white head. Grain and soap in the nose. Medium sweetness and body. Taste of oxidized hops at the tail end. I got this for $4.99 a six pack (16 oz cans) at Whole Foods...I got what I paid for.

This is my boat beer. ITís in cans, and doesnít harbor a lot of flavor. Perfect for the heat. Am I supposed to drink Imperial IPA while fishing????? I think not.
Worse than Beast? Old Mil? Someone needs a hug.
Iíve paid more for a lot worse.
