Out of an aluminum bottle, this beer pours a pale, clear, and bright yellow colored beer with a fizzy white foam head that snaps down to nothing in seconds. Loads of large carbonation bubbles.
Clean aroma, hints of fresh grains ...
Near medium in body with an even feel on the palate. A tight, crisp fizz strikes the palate with a sharp-ish lemony hop twang. Sweet and even bready and dextriny maltiness offsets and provides some depth. Distinct sweet boiled corn flavors of dimethyl sulfide with a fresh corn grits grainy base. Drying finish with DMS lingers ...
Eh. Better than a macro offering, or just more of the same?

2.17/5 rDev -12.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck twist off bottle with no freshness date to be found.
Appearance: Pale golden and very clear with large bubbles racing to the top that struggle to hold a thin white lace.
Smell: Cooked veggie aroma, some husky grain and that is all in the nose.
Taste: Mild crispness from a medium level of carbonation in a light body. Very slim on the malt, lots of grain and husky flavours with vague astringencies. Hops are brash but small and only help to enhance the astringent flavours. Light lemony hop seems out of place. Touch of cooked veggie and corn grit flavour, finishes dry with a lingering faded veggie flavour.
Notes: Not very clean at all, better off just sticking with a Bud, Miller or Coors than tangling with this brew. A sub-premium American Lager that is not worth my time.

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.
