A bottle at the Harmar, PA Primanti Bros. Can't order a Pitts Burgher without an IC, right?
A: The lager is fizzy and yellow, with a thin band of white head. That head doesn't last for long in my glass.
S: The nose has corn sweetness, light with little in the way of biscuit or hops. Incredibly sweet without no counterbalance.
T: Fizzy and sweet, again the corn a takes center stage. That sweetness is unpleasant, lacking many redeeming qualities. On the bright side, the lack of flavor is surprisingly refreshing - I could easily drink several of these with little ill effect (other than the resultant hydration).
M: The mouthfeel is creamy, quite sweet. In one fell swoop I can cross Primanti Bros. and IC off my bucket list; I wasn't impressed with either.

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.
