COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

"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."

A hoppy ale with plenty of lingering dry hop bitterness but not a lot of hop fruit. Dissapointing!
