COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With the re-release of our Common beer, Argus Brewery offers a very unique American beer. This type of beer was brewed in the San Francisco Bay Area from the mid 1800′s to the mid 1900′s, A hybrid style, it uses a lager yeast but is fermented at warmer temperatures typical of ale. Copper colored and medium bodied, Argus Ironhorse has full malt & spicy herbal hop flavors, producing a very unique character unlike any ale or lager.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Thanks to Dad for this. Overall pretty decent, less hoppy and more malty than Anchor Steam, the aroma I couldn’t get over it smelled a little like those lollypops that my pediatrician used to give out years ago, with the loop instead of the stick. Serving: Bottle

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 PIlsner glass. Amber color and milky head is an eye-pleaser. Leafy, citrus smell. Nice and saison-y. Unfortunately the scent doesn’t follow through, the taste is super hoppy and not at all fruity. Kind of caustic.

Delicious and unique. Crisp and malty with a punch of fruit at the end. Much tastier and complex than your average lager.

12 ounce bottle with aromas of light citrus, nuts and spice. Flavors follow suit with metallic aftertaste, not that good of beer when there are other options out there readily available for this style.

drowland (7059) - Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2013
10/18/13. 12oz bottle from a random ABC in Tallahassee. Gee, I should have guessed that the 3 Tallahassee tickers beat me to this bad boy! Amber pour, dark copper in a way, with a small khaki head. Metallic all over this bad boy - aroma and flavor. Malty beyond that, some biscuity, doughy aspects, and touches of caramel. Mostly pennies.

12oz bottle from ABC. Clear brown pour with a good sized head that dissipates quickly with lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is musty and spice. Tastes are toffee, caramel, nuts, citrus - has a tea vibe. Little bit tinny. Crisp palate. Pretty decent.

PorterPounder (6292) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a sticky off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has a light fruity essence to it with hints of wort. Flavor has some nice toffee accents, a hint of caramel, some nuttiness and a citrusy back end. Mouthfeel has a nice textured crispness to it. Very enjoyable.
