pretty sure its no longer brewed. Have not seen in ages, shame because it was a decent local PA brew, not Elliot Ness, but not toilet water either, a low cost example of its style. B ring it back and slow production on Iron.

A - Poured out a clear, amber color with caramel highlights. It had a small, off-white head of foam that little to no lace.

S - It smelled slightly floral with some caramel malt.

T - It tasted malty and sweet with a floral hop bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is an okay vienna lager. I've certainly had better, but it was worth a try.

Attractive copper in color, with medium white head. No lace here.

This medium-bodied lager's aroma is sweet and bready.

Flavor follows much in line, with a crisply malty taste up front, with very little discernible hops presence, sadly.

I get a bready, yeasty taste, more akin to an amber ale. Not bad, but not anything special either. An easy-drinker, nonetheless.

Poured into my fat 20 oz weizen glass from Leinkenkugel's. Brew is a golden amber color with a cream colored head on top. Smells wet. A near-Oktoberfest aroma. Brown sugar on toasted wheat bread. Sweet malty smell spreads thin, but matches the taste. Attenuated with a balancing amount of bittering units. A mallty, honey-like sweetness in the taste. A touch of alcohol in the finish as it drys on the buds. I appreciate the head for sticking around.

Some people around my way like to compare this brew to Yuengling's Traditional Lager. While they've got a point, Iron City's Augistiner is more tepid and reserved. Still, a highly drinkable brew.

Because I work at a distributor, I paid around ten bucks for a case, but any customer can walk in and walk out with a case (a flat) of IC's Augistiner for roughly $13, and that is not at all a bad thing.

Pours a light amber color, mildly roasty in the nose

flavor follows suit, mild burnt caramel notes, very mild indeed, some black liquorish, not much hop bite to speak of, mostly all malt.

It is well balanced there's just not much flavor going on

It is pretty well balanced just not much flavor to speak of, a basic example of this style, comparable to a Leinenkugel's amber
