Iron Horse

500 mL bottle, Hop City, Atlanta, GA $3.99. Good value I thought.
Light colored, amber body with plenty of airy bubbles and head. Good retention and some nice, sticky white lace that leaves an attractive pattern.
Nose is a light, floral note. Hops upfront, but in a subtle, non-assertive English manner.
Tastes deliver a dryish experience with more hops than I was expecting. To be honest this drinks more like an English Pale Ale or perhaps even an English IPA rather than a Bitter. it lacks much sweetness or depth, so not a classic example of the English Bitter style for me.
Carbonation is a touch prickly in the mouth.
Drinkable and thirst quenching, I enjoyed the brew but I’d have to take it out of the style listed on BA to be completely satisfied.
