Out of the can it pours the typical yellow tinge of an American Adjunct Lager - nothing overly special. The scent of the brew is just not appealing to me. However, I did note some hints of citrus and spice in the overall flavor mixing well with the hops - so that was a plus. Overall it's not quite okay, but it's certainly not the worst I've had.

This beer is a comfort beer for me. I grew up around Pittsburgh and Iron City was alway supporting the local sports teams (Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins). I like it because it reminds me of my favorite city, Pittsburgh!, or should I say Sixburgh.
