2.48/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body with a wispy, white head.

Smell: Grainy, slightly sweetish, cereal aroma with one single drop of lemon.

Taste: Cereal, corn fleck taste. Medium sweetness. Faintest floral hops and bitterness. More of the same till the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: So-so. Much to my surprise, I found I.C Light to be, okay, maybe not better, but more tolerable.

Serving type: bottle

I made the mistake of trying this beer with a buddy of mine who claimed that it was a "classic." I'm not going to waste time with an in depth review but believe me when I say that it was the worst beer I've ever had. Maybe I shouldn't have tried it after having drank several good craft brews before allowing it to pass my lips. I'm not 100% sure. Either way, it won't be something I drink again unless it's In post apocalyptic world and it's the only beer I can find. The only thing good about Iron City was the laugh it provided my buddy as I spit it out.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.75

Honey straw color with a big bubbled head. Settles into frothy cap.

Corn and cooked veggies. Light sulfur creamed corn.

Creamed corn and cookies veggies. Slight tin note. Quite sweet.

Light and watery. Sweet on the palate. Perhaps a slight dry note in the finish but not very crisp.

Not very good. Not even crisp which is hard not to do for the style.

Tastes the same going in as it does going out. Avoid unless you're deeply (and delusionally) nostalgic. If you gotta go Pennsylvanian, then go Yuengling or Troegs or even Rolling Rock before you go here. Pitt has a lot of other things going for it: Warhol, Stellers, U Pitt, etc. The beer ain't one of those things.
