Theydon_Bois (20609) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at home - 05/08/12. Pours to a clear amber colour with a slightly off-white thinnish head. Malt, caramel and a little hop on the nose. Taste wise there is a wheaty/grainy flavour, hops, and a background sweetness, perhaps honey? Decent enough mouthfeel and carbonation. Nowt special!

annunz123 (967) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Caramel malt, bread, and a little orange in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet with caramel and toffee. Finishes with some hop bitterness and a little sour flavor. I liked this better than the rating indicated--good, easy drinking beer.

DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to Helen and Keith. Dark bronze in this light with a fat, level white foam. Sensible, slightly herbal, aniseed-like English hop aroma streaked with attractive peanut butter notes and a red jellied fruit, Sheps hint. Soft and stony with hints of almond, wholemeal crackers, aniseed and caramel-drizzled pear. Honestly. Safe but good.

Amber...clear...large frothy white head...good lacing
Aroma - Caramel malts...some sweetish toffee....slight floral notes....light spicy hops...hint of berries 7
Taste - Caramel malts...toffee...light bitter spicy bit grassy hops...very light fruits...mellow flavours...slight cake mix....emphasis on the malts
Palate - soft carb...thin to medium body...smooth...light sweet caramel. Finish as main flavour with some more bitterness...cleans well
Overall - A reasonably good pale ale...nothing outstanding...flavour a bit restrained for the abv but what’s there is pleasant....nice easy drinking

redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Crisp honey aromas on the nose with herbal hops. Iron Horse pours slightly hazy with an amber hue. Grassy hops upfront with an earthy bitterness and hints of pine. Not bad.

3.6
Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle at the Hepworth stall at MasterChef Live, Olympia Centre, London. Pours gold with a small, white head. Has a sweet malt aroma with hints of caramel. Medium sweet flavor, toffee, light fruits, slight herbal bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mild bitter finish, slight leaves, caramel malts, mild bread. Nice beer.

3.2
mike_77 (7085) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2011
Pale copper colour. Quite a floral, hoppy aroma and a hint of wood too. Nice dry, hoppy flavour.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours a light brown colour with a thin white head that soon disappears. Plenty of roasted malt in the aroma, the taste is malty with a hops and a hint of some caramel with a dry finish.
