"Iron Horse is a strong pale ale hand crafted at the beer station from a complex grist of roasted malts and English hops. This gives a full flavour with a traditional Sussex hoppy nose to the beer."

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Cloudy dark amber liquid with a moderate, somewhat fizzy old paper colored head. Light aromas with floor malt, caramel, and hints of dried flowers. Dry old malt flavors with some aged hops in the background. Hints of grapefruit zest. Some light fruit flavors echo about. A traditional pale ale, that said quite boring, but no real faults. I find the body to be quite weak and a bit too fizzy for my liking. 6/10
