degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2012
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.

weihenweizen (4167) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2011
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.

Definitely one of the worst beers I’ve ever tasted! Metallic flavor predominates -- at first I thought this was a fluke and so opened a second bottle and found it to be consistent.

brokensail (16678) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color with a short lived white head.

S: Smells sour right off the bat. Sweet corn and grain and a bit of a grass aroma. Not much to say about this, to be honest.

T: Overly sweet and medicinal. Cough syrup, orange, corn tortilla, and old, decaying grain. Just not pleasing in any sense.

M: The body is light, but it sits on the tongue too long. Medium in carbonation.

D: This was pretty awful. No wonder it only costs $0.50 a can.

DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 14, 2011
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.

Tasty lager that goes down easy. Has a yeasty edge which I like. Now that I’ve found Stoney’s 16-oz sixers for $6 or so at BevMo here in S-Diego, I’ll be adding these to my regular rotation of Starz Beer (Scripps Ranch Liquors), Simpler Times Lager (6.2% abv -- Trader Joes’s) and Genesee (BevMo.) Regional, old-fashioned lagers are my thing, the best being -- of course -- Grain Belt, which I hope will be distributed here again in the future.

A very simple pale lager. Slight alcohol aroma. Minimal head. Light sweet and bitter taste. Refreshing beer. Light finish. Light body with a lively carbonation.

1.5
Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 13, 2009
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.

2.5
cheap (6131) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
White 12 oz can from a $14/24 case. A little more golden than I expected. Doesn’t smell bad, like most cheap lagers do. Taste is clean but slightly metallic and processed. At times it has a sort of unsweetened slaggy background. Good carbonation. Mild industrial finish, easily repeatable. Decent pale lager session brew.

To my knowledge, Stoneys is brewed by Jones Brewing Co. in Smithton, PA - about 30 some miles south. Has Iron City bought them out?
