One of the worst beers I’ve ever tasted. What is with you Pittsburgh people?

"More corn like the original but a little less heavy on the adjuncts. I like that better, but it’s feel is way too watery and there is no follow through on the aroma or flavor."

Pounder can outside of Stinky’s. Pale yellow clear pour. Floaty white head. Metallic, wet cereal, wet cardboard aroma. Taste is metallic and just all around pretty disgusting. Preference goes to Bud light.

DATE REVIEWED: August 2, 2014... GLASSWARE: ballpark see-through plastic... OCCASION: perfect night for a ballgame and some beers with brother Jer in State College...APPEARANCE: thick, white creamy head; yellow body with some cascading bubbles...meh... AROMA: vague hints of water hose, hay and malt liquor ping....with a hint of beer pong ball... PALATE: light bodied, with a retreating aftertaste--has peanut-rinsing potential... TASTE: middling malts mingle with water to produce...mostly water, with a warming fuzz not appropriate to its ABV...not much else can be deduced... OVERALL: I went cheaper at the Spikes game and got four more ounces for a dollar less than the Robin Hood IPA...and not surprisingly, I regretted the change.. this beer needs to be chased with an activity that involves strong-tasting fare; otherwise, I wouldn’t drink this unless visiting Pittsburgh where the locals embrace its quirks and flaws....

Transfer from BA review on 4-29-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a light golden color with a one figure pure white head. The head faded fast to leave a surprising amount of lacing for a light beer (although lacking when compared to most other brews). Smell – Almost no aroma at all. Just a very light corn. Taste – A light breadiness is on the tongue throughout. There is some corn upfront which fades giving way to a very light caramel sweetness. At the very end the tiniest bit of citrus seems to work its way in along with some more papery tastes as well. Mouthfeel – A light body with a medium to high level of carbonation. Pretty standard light beer. Overall - More flavorful the average light beer with a better look as well. If you want a light beer this is one to have from time to time.

A run of the mill light beer. Slight maltiness, crisp, lots of carbonation. I like it better than regular Iron City.

This was a bad beer as I expected it to be, but it had a Pirates logo on it so I had to get one.

Bottle: Pours clear, pale gold with a small white head. Light grain, corn malt aroma. Corn...malts...grain flavours. Less sweet than the regular version, less fruity, but more crisp.... Neutral feeling. Watery, but ok for a light beer.

@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate OH --- Clear light amber with no head or lace. Taste is carbonation first, adding some adjunct and perhaps some malt in there somewhere. There is a sour overtone that accompanies this. Taste continues straight-forward right through the finish. Suprisingly weak brew, even for an old-time lightweight.

A friend got me this while we were roaming the Pittsburgh bars. I have already had a bunch of the regular and this brew wasn’t far off. Clear yellowish color, almost no head.
