COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

WVHouseofBeer (917) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2014
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.

ljthiessen (615) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Dark, amber-brown pour with a thick, beige head, great retention. Aroma is sweet bread, raisin, maple sugar, a bit of vanilla and biscuit notes. Flavour is far less sweet and interesting than the aroma, malty with dark and dried fruit, raisin prune and plum. Dry finish. Decent brown ale.

Strangebrewer (949) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2015
bottle. Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. Roasty malt aroma with some alcohol. Medium body, oily mouthfeel with an astringent finish. Malt flavour, roasted almost smokey with a bitter dark chocolate note, a touch sour.

fiveacestx (709) - Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2014
On tap at Gahan - dark brown with a generous head. A nutty aroma (like a lot of nut browns) and a malty chocolate taste. Medium body and a smooth finish. Very good.

Suttree (5370) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle from Travlr - Thanks! Deep brown, with a fragile head. Smells like coffee and caramel, with a dose of red wine, too. Taste is earthy, plus some caramel and burnt toast. Some red wine, as well. Pretty darn enjoyable, actually...

Metalchopz (2514) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Part of the Gahan Fathers Commemorative 4-Pack at the LCBO. Pours a clean light copper colour with amber. Nice creamy-froth beige head, good retention and creamy lacing. Mild roasted malt nose with some fruitiness, caramel and nuts. The taste has this, but is covered with grassy hops. Light smokiness from the burnt malts lingers. Not a bad brown ale.

JStax (3416) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2014
500 ml bottle thanks to Travlr! Pours a lighter brown to amber with a fizzy beige head of foam. The aroma is dry, roasty, and nutty. Some chocolate is in there too, but it’s more subtle. The taste is ashy and bitter. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Spab (2692) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
500 ml bottle from Oromocto ANBL. Pours an orange-tinged dark brown with decent-sized light tan head with solid retention. Aroma is mild but plesant with light roast, nuts and chocolate. Flavour is modestly roasty with sweetish chocolate, caramel and some nuttiness. Carbonation on the finer side. Decent brown ale.
