COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nice subtle aroma, cascade hops with subtle Carmel malts, beautiful color, deep copper red, spicy intro, nice body and taste, soft finish...no lingering aftertaste. A very good quality product and very enjoyable.

A nice slightly hoppy lager. Everyone that has ever tasted it agrees that this beer is Iron City’s best effort. I am a home brewer and just bottled my version of this tasty craft beer. Try this beer and revisit Iron City again!

Pours a dark amber color with very little head. Sweet caramel flavor. It could use a little more carbonation. This is a very tasty beer.

12 oz bottle from Fun Fest on Freeport Road in Pittsburgh. Might be too sweet with very detectible sugars and caramels. Plenty of smoothness that comes from an overpowering creaminess. Overdone in both of these categories.

Smooth and gentle malt flavor. Rich amber color and pleasant aroma. Not heavy like others in its class.

Pours an amber color. Smell is of malts, some caramel. Taste is malty, grains, a touch of caramel. Overall a good session beer.

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’.

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.

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.
