There are many types of ales . . . Pale ones, Brown ones and Ales that hail from Scotland and Belgium, there are Old ones and Mild ones and so on and so forth. They all have their own special characteristics, but in general ales are brewed from malted barley and hops.
Iron Mikes is a pale ale that comes in BIG 24 ounce cans . . . and like it says . . . everyone loves big cans!
Don’t be put off by the fact that this beer comes in a can. The can does an excellent job of protecting the beer from ultra-violet light. Not that I don’t like bottled beer, but the cans protect the beer from skunking much better than bottles that allow the evil light in.
Poured into a tall, cold glass Mikes flows a paled golden color with a fluffy head. It imparts a citrusy aroma that is a mouthwatering tease to the grapefruity flavor. It’s hoppy without being overly bitter . . . Mikes is nicely balanced and a truly refreshing brew. A very drinkable 5.6% ABV . . . sit back, have a couple and chill. All hail the pale ale!
