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."

Pours a very hazy, and very dark amber with a small off-white head. Some sticky lacing. Smell is earthy English malts, fruit, slightly citrusy. Taste is typical biscuity English malts, toffee. Hops are a pleasant, tea-like bitterness, not citrusy at all. Light to medium body, carbonation is mild. Nice finish, not too dry. Bitterness not strong, but lasts. Good ale.

Bottle 500 ml from PS. Nice amber with a short white head. Soft fruity aromas, malt, toast, toffee, citrus. The taste is on malt with toffy, lemon, cereals, herbs and earth. Rather fat, bitterness which culminates in final, less smooth and more earthy.

Bottle-pours a soft amber with a light, white head. Aroma was light caramel and no malts. The taste was a really soft fruit with a real light toffee flavor. Medium carbonation. A light but enjoyable pub ale. Produce place, 2.99.

Theydon_Bois (9990) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at home - 05/08/12. Pours to a clear amber colour with a slightly off-white thinnish head. Malt, caramel and a little hop on the nose. Taste wise there is a wheaty/grainy flavour, hops, and a background sweetness, perhaps honey? Decent enough mouthfeel and carbonation. Nowt special!

annunz123 (881) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Caramel malt, bread, and a little orange in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet with caramel and toffee. Finishes with some hop bitterness and a little sour flavor. I liked this better than the rating indicated--good, easy drinking beer.
