Iron Bridge Brown Ale is a testament to the power of malt. With a base of Canadian barley malt for bready crispness, the rich roasty-toasty aromas are the result of premium British chocolate and black malts. Hopped lightly to let the malts take centre stage.

Note: Formerly known as Iron Horse Brown Ale.

Overall this was an average to slightly above average brown ale. Pretty forgettable but serviceable. Looks good, smells and tastes mostly of chocolate, nuts and caramel but are a little too light. Medium bodied.

mcberko (14659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dark fruits upfront, followed by toasted malt and a little caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with dry toasted caramel and bready malts. Dry and fairly lifeless. It’s competently brewed, but nothing special. Meh.

Holdwine (1179) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Malty, malty, malty. Roasted layers of toffee, chocolate and cereal. Then a surprisingly crisp finish and off to the next step. The lack of a follow through keeps the score a bit low.

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2016
On tap in at the brewpub in Halifax. Slightly more bitter than average for style, and with malts that lean more than usual towards dark roast. A touch of smoke comes with the dark malts. Excellent head and lacing over a clear but very dark brown body.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Almost opaque dark brown color with a copper hue and subtle visible activity. Extra creamy beige 3 finger head lasting around 10 minutes with strong legs. Aromas and flavors of molasses, chocolate, coffee, nuts, caramel, fruits, herbal spices. Well intensified sweet taste from quality sugary elements and dark fruits coupled with some sharp super earthy and roasted nuts feel. Creamy medium body with subtle carbonation. Short but balanced finish ending with a slightly dry spiciness but a strong chalky roasted earthy feel that is still pleasant. Overall : Great craft; balanced complex rich and delicious flavors that are not too spicy while refreshing and accessible, but the nose is a little faint with a slight metal feel.

Pours brown, not too surprisingly. Aroma and taste lean more to the sweet than the nutty. Simple but smooth.

Alpha10 (637) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2015
2015/11/28 - Pours a dark brown mahogany colour with a thin, khaki head that quickly reduces. Aroma is bread, nuts, roasted malt, dark fruits and light molasses. Taste is nuts, roasted malt, dough and sweet molasses. Mouthfeel is medium with lightly sharp carbonation and a long, bitter, slightly acidic finish. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille rapportée de l’île du Prince Édouard lors de mon voyage insulaire à l’été 2015. J’ai rapporté cette bouteille en ayant le souvenir que cette bière, comme la 1772 IPA figurait parmi mes préférées de la brasserie. La bière est bien sombre et laisse de jolis lacings sur le verre. Pour le look, la bière s’en sort haut la main. Arômes terreux de chocolat au lait et de malts suris à la limite d’être poussiéreux. C’est très unidimensionnel. En y plongeant bien le nez, j’ai l’impression d’y respirer les arômes d’une levure Pils. En bouche, le liquide est bien aqueux quoique bien sucré aussi. Les saveurs de grains rôtis sont bien présentes mais les saveurs ne se bousculent pas dans ma bouche. Disons-le: elles sont bien timides. Une amertume de houblon aurait été la bienvenue question d’ajouter quelques saveurs à ces grains gris. Hélas, il n’en est rien. Cette bière bien que courte et plutôt insipide se boit tout de même très bien.
