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.

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.

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

It’s been many years since I had a Stoneys, but I thought I’d 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 today’s macros.

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.

Can. Pours a hazy lambent gold with a high, large-grained head. The nose has definite grain, apple, and honey elements. It’s 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 Gene’s 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.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Passable, but not anything special going on here. Had a slight saltiness that made the beer palateable. Clean crisp and boring.

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.
