Iron Hill Pig Iron Porter
iron hill west chester Pours a very dark brown with a very thin head that does leave moderate lacing. The aroma is a pleasant chocolatey goodness with a touch of roastiness blended in. The taste is a heavy coffee flavor with a hint of chocolate. It finishes slightly bitter. Itís pretty nice in flavor compared to most porters. Not bad at all

Iron Hill Irish Dry Stout
On tap at North Wales, on nitro. Bitter burned stout with notes of diacetyl. Couldnít finish. Cynical attempt to placate St. Patrickís Day punters, who presumably wouldnít know buttered popcorn as an off flavor or mind it if they did.

Unfortunately, I have to review this from memory, but based on what Iíve got stored in my brain, this was a good beer. It was malty, but not strong, and it was a nice shade of red. Iíd order it again.

Tap at IH WC location. Enjoyed with family. Poured gold and two finger white head. I am enjoying. Malty citrus aroma, hops for sure, a bit of metallic funk, malt and soil, all keep it pretty light. Smooth character, not half that bad.

Iron Hill Pig Iron Porter
On tap at the Maple Shade brewpub. A brown, almost clear beer topped by a light beige head. The aroma has coffee, chocolate and roasted malts, quite balanced. Thereís some bitterness and sweetness in the flavor, but itís mostly roasted malts giving you chocolate and coffee. Smooth, dry and full to medium bodied and with a lasting finish. A nice beer, but more a brown ale than a porter I think. 150623

Iron Hill Vienna Red Lager
On tap at the brewpub. An amber colored beer, clear, and with a dense, white head. Caramel, some grass and a faint roasted note in the aroma. Itís soft, thin-bodied and with a decent bitterness, although rather low. Suits the beer though. Thereís not too much flavor either. Some caramel maltyness and a light grassy, fruity hop flavor. Easy drinkable, but not ringing any of my bells. 150623

Iron Hill Light Lager
On tap at the brewpub. Itís a clear, pale golden beer topped by a small, dense, white head. Some lacing. Rather weak aroma, fruity, and with some maltyness and grass. Itís thin and soft on the palate, quite dry, with a decent bitterness. Generic fruityness and grass on a malty backdrop, all weak, just as in the flavor. A boring beer, but sort of quenching and refreshing. 150623

Dark brown, off-white head. Chocolate, coffee, toffee, oak, earthy malts that taste like a tree. Pretty solid beer. Fairly light. Gives a bit of a sting. I got two even with all the others they had at the time that I hadnít tried.
