COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great for sitting by a campfire, in front of a fireplace, or just relaxing, this easy drinking beer has been lightly kissed by flames for a golden color, and a toasty light malt finish. Fire Light Ė expertly crafted for drinkability and enjoyment.

12 oz bottle I picked up somewhere in Wisconsin during my recent trip. Pours a translucent gold color with a small white head that soon fades to a film. The aroma is mild with sweet grains and a touch of spice. The taste is watered down sweet cereal grains. Palate is thin a watery with weak carbonation. Finishes short (thankfully). Overall: Waaay to sweet--drainpour. This would only appeal to kids with underdeveloped palates that prefer a bland sweet entree.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Medium gold body with a thin white head. The nose is sweet and grainy with some hints of grape jelly. The mouth feel is very fizzy. The taste is old bologna and cheap blackberry wine. There is also some cooked sweet potato. Overly sweet and a little harsh to drink.

The aroma is relatively sweet smelling, butterscotch and grainy, while the appearance is yellow-gold. The flavor is also grainy and has a mildly sweet finish. Not an explosion of flavor but easy to drink and sessionable.

6/13/11. 12oz bottle. Very slightly hazy golden pour with a small off-white head. Herbal, vegetal aroma with ketchup and green pepper... oh my. Sweet, disgusting vegetal flavor with sweet tomatoes, green peppers, and more horrible stuff. Wow, this is awful.

Pours a clear, light gold with a small eggshell head that has good retention due to the crazy effervescence. I am drinking out of a Sam Adams glass and that nucleation ring is working overtime. Aroma is sweet, grainy malt, light fruit notes and a bit of buttery toffee. Flavor is pretty much the same, but with some gravel dust coated leafy greens and apple skins thrown in. Palate is light bodied, and way too carbonated to even get a reading on the mouthfeel at first, It turns out to be dry, very dry, like sucking on a stalk of freshly picked rhubarb astringently dry. I really donít like it, maybe some kind of infection or something, but I donít think so. Overall, I donít know, itís like somebody tried to cover up a mediocre golden ale by throwing a shitload of carbonation at it, hoping that the flavor would get washed out before anybody could taste it.

Bottle thanks to BeerFMAndy. Served in a Cantillon tulip. Pours a clear golden color without too many visible carbonation bubbles. Initial pour brings a single-finger white head that fades fairly quickly into a bubbly cap and a thin collar without too much lacing. The nose is a bit grainy and metallic without all that much more. Some mild bread crust as it warms. The flavor is quite a bit better than the nose with a mild bread character that is slightly pleasing. Something in the finish is a bit off with some mild creamed corn character. DMS never made anyone happy; thankfully itís at a fairly-low level here. Drinkability is decent enough. Not bad.

It poured a gold color with a white head. The aroma was very malty, hoppy and some corn. The taste was a touch of fruit, malty with corn and some hops. An ok light ale.

Were they trying to poison me? This is a lager if I am not mistaken. Sprecher has tried hard to make a craft light beer, they need to keep trying.
