I was thrilled when a friend brought one back from Pittsburgh for me and just saddened and depressed when we opened it.
Poured almost clear yellow with big carbonation bubbles with a hard, foamy head that collapsed into a faint ring almost immediately.
Smell was metallic and sharp; corn and sugar. Yup: litter-box adjunct wafting cat-pee smell makes this unpleasant in the nose.
Taste is sharp and strong of adjunct lager. Lightness and astringency from the rice? Sweet and tangy and somehow unbeer like. I've been spoiled by good beer.
Mouthfeel: did I just drink something? Overall: this is what I left behind when I started drinking craft beer, and it's good to be reminded why I won't accept any crap on tap.

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.
