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.

Poured from the bottle (from the freezer) of a six pack into a pint glass. Looks almost like a brown ale, smells good. I think the commercial description of medium bodied common sums it up pretty well. This beer has many medium qualities and is very easy drinking considering it’s 6.5%. I think a beer named after one of the best early Motorhead songs needs a stand out distinctive quality, not sure if that would be hops, alcohol, or whatever. Wouldn’t turn one down if it was handed to me though.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and dark orange with a mid-sized, creamy off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nose is toasty with hints of vanilla and nuttiness. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor boasts toasty and crunchy malts accompanied by mild bitterness. Crisp, bittersweet finish and aftertaste. Not bad at all.

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