3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a gentle hazy red color with a light transparency about it. Bar pour yields a film of a white head that dissipated within less than a minute.
The smell had some bitter citrus-like hops with a light underscore of sweet caramel malts.
The taste was sweet, balanced between the malts and hops, and came across somewhat crisp.
On the palate, this was about a light in body. There was a slight sessionable aspect about it.
Overall, decent red ale worthy of having again.

Nice amber color,no head to speak of.The armoa was caramely with a mildly sweet side sort of coming through and a decent hop presence.The flavor was pretty good nice malt side some fruit and hops with a decent hoppy finish that is slightly bitter but nicely done.Over all not bad makes me wish there was a place like this in my area so i didn’t have to drive so far.

On tap at brewpub. Deep orange color and clear. A lot of caramel with a bit of floral and perfumy hops. Mostly sweet, very sessionable.

Decent ’red’ ale. Tasted similar to the Barely Blonde ale. Very drinkable on tap at the brewery. Not sure how this would taste bottled, I probably would not buy it often.

Not bad for an amber ale but it had an almost fruity/hoppy aftertaste. I wouldn't know how to explain it. It definitely doesn't come close to the Firehouse's Brown Cow Ale, thats for sure.

Another good beer at the Firehouse. Had a little different aftertaste then most other amber ales but i liked it. The Firehouse does a good job in brewing different types of beers in the great state of south dakota
