I was walking around Home Bargains having an idle browse when I saw, on a shelf, bottles of what I thought was beer, but in the soft drinks section. Taking a closer look, I saw they were 'Iron Press', a soft drink 'for men' which is non alcoholic, but brewed with hops to give it a beery taste. They had two options, Lime or Apple. I went for Lime as I love a nice Lager and Lime and bought two bottles at 59p each for hubby and I. I got home and stuck them in the fridge (you have to chill beer, alcoholic or not!) and promptly forgot all about them. Then hubby came home and went in the fridge.. 'what on Earthbh's this?' He was a bit dubious when I told him. I ... Read the complete review

In an attempt to create a soft drink for men Halewood International who brought us Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer came up with a new creation - Iron Press. Iron Press is a bottled soft drink which has been designed to have the look and feel of a real bottle of beer, therefore disguising the fact that it is a soft drink. Iron Press was launched back in July 2010 and according to their website (www.ironpress.com) comes in two flavours; Apple Lemon & Lime Yet the bottle I have in front of me is 'Iron Press - Lime Beer so I am not sure if they have decided to ditch the lemon or to introduce a third flavour. However it has come ... Read the complete review

Whilst browsing the shelves of my beloved Home Bargains I came across a bottle of this Iron Press apple beer having not seen this brand of drink before I picked up a couple of bottles to give it ago, it also comes in lime as well (review to follow if its on here). First off this drink is not an actual beer nor is it advertised as a non alcoholic beer but it is actually labelled as a 'soft drink for real men'. The back of the bottle tells me it is 'Forged from apples with a carbonated malted barley base, iron press is the soft drink that is big on taste, big on refreshment......... and pours like a beer. A real alternative for real men' well sexist comments ... Read the complete review

Tried the lime version at home, whilst on medication, after getting bored with tea, and in place of a real beer. Firstly this is not a non alcoholic beer, but a soft drink, and it's wise to take the claim of 'beer' on the bottle the same way as ginger 'beer'. Having said that, it does clearly state on the bottle that it is a soft drink. I chose to drink from the bottle, as opposed to a glass, so I am not sure whether it resembles a pint or not when poured, but alcohol and taste aside, the texture is not much different to drinking a real ale from a bottle. The first sip reveals quite a sharp lime taste, however after a few more sips, I started to really enjoy it. I can ... Read the complete review
