The things I wonít taste to ensure a complete database or beer list! Iron City indeed; how do I flush the rust? Metallic, harsh, no appreciable aroma, no head, no lace, no good.

Cybercat (4442) - Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Pours clear light golden with a thick and frothy eggshell head that says hello and quickly exits. Aroma is crisp and malty, typical and uninspiring. Typical flavor presents malty and weak fruity tones. Mouthfeel lacks fizz and body, but at least it is distinguishable from water. Well, itís another rating.

It is what it is. Not very good at all. At least it's not made in steel cans anymore. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UDBeernut (2388) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle pours golden, white fizzy head. Typical adjunct pittsburgh piss. Metal, corn, slightly sweet, light body.

Scuzz Twittly said it best when he crooned: "Iron City is shitty and the town smells like a turd/when you see black and gold just flip em the bird". Itís true. and who am I to disagree with Scuzz? No muy amigo, avoid this, like you avoid sobriety. Head to the warm loving embrace of Blatz....which is ALL that is right in this world. It is what it is....and shall be....or not.

alobar (3288) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Pours a transparent straw yellow color with a creamy white head. Aroma of corn, bread, and not much else. Corn malt flavor with some skunk, and grain. Meh, but it could have been so much worse.

bth122 (1395) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2014
From a can. Clear golden color with small head. Aroma of some grain and corn. Tastes like steel city and Mon river water. Not bad but not good. Average carbonation. Slight metal. Gotta support the Yinzer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can - Light and watery taste. A slight bite but not from hops. More malt flavor but not sweet either.

BVery (8912) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from Binnyís in Schaumburg, IL. Clear pale gold pour with a small white head. Corn, very light, mild carbonation. Exceedingly dull, but not offensive either.

ordybill (936) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma-Grain is the predominant scent, I could not detect anything else. Appearance- This beer is a clear yellow with a white head Taste- Strong flavor of corn and malt, not terrible but not world class Palate- Medium bodied with a lot of carbonation Overall- barely average to me, but I am not from the local area for this brew. I hear this is held in reverence in Pittsburgh.
