Hand crafted with the finest Bavarian hops and two-row malted barley

Pittsburgh Brewing Company’s newest brew, Iron City Amber Classic Lager, is made with the finest Bavarian hops and two-row malted barley. It’s refreshing and not too heavy, with subtle caramel malts and a smooth finish.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and light fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, light fruittiness and light earthiness with a crisp lingering carmel finish.

In bottles at GABF 2012. Pours a clear light amber color with a medium white head. A nice nose of caramel and dusty malts. A pretty simple dry flavor with caramel and biscuit. OK.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet and lightly toasted malts, with lighter earthy notes, followed by a relatively clean malty finish. Pretty good.

drowland (7773) - Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2012
5/6/12. 12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with a small khaki head that fades fast. Very plain aroma with touches of sweet caramel. Sweet caramel entry with a hint of tartness and fruitiness with a surprising bitter, dry finish. For an amber lager, this should be more easy-drinking. This tastes... off.

PorterPounder (6972) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Tallahassee, FL - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, light off-white head that dissipates quickly, Aroma has some brief caramel notes, a hint of hard candy. Flavor is slightly bland and a bit metallic. Brief wisps of caramel, some cola, not much else. Mouthfeel is slightly metallic. So-so.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6318) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a large foamy orange white head that lingers and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweetish with touches of butterscotch, nut and sulfur. The flavor was tangy and somewhat bitter with faint caramel and a touch of fruit. Medium length bitter and tangy finish. Light body. Eh.

Bronze, clear, fizzy bone head. Good graphics. Not ambitious, but drinkable. Parched cereal aroma with some sweet malt. Just the slightest bit of roast, a little caramel, not very bitter or otherwise obviously hopped. Generally gave me the impression of a decent session brew. Clean finish. I could see going through a sixer at a tailgate party easily. New Leaf Market.

Quite smooth and very thin. Enjoyable at some point but nothing special about it further.

LinusStick (3156) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Very boring amber lager. Aroma was so so. Slight hints of caramel malt with some peanut and metal. Pour was stunning. Very full deep red with a one finger off white head. Taste was not very good. Strong metallic flavor and toasted malt in the front with not much aftertaste. Very bland. Decent carbonation. Good intro beer for pale lager drinkers, but not very significant otherwise.

Taste is in between Yuengling Lager and Sam Adams Lager. It doesn’t have the bite of a SA, but not as mild as the Yuengling. Overall decent, I agree with Linus Stick, it is a good intro beer for pale lager drinkers. It’s always good to support local breweries’.
