COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth golden beer is made with real Saaz hops for a truly fine Pilsner style lager. Fireman’s Brew Blonde is a crisp, refreshing choice to end your day with. At 5.0% alcohol, this is the lightest of our beers.

A 12oz bottle from a friend traded for Firemans Redhead. Poured into a Shaker. Average amount of frothy white head that dissipates rather quickly with not much lacing. Hazy gold in appearance. Slight aroma of grassy hops and bready malt. Smells very fresh. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. I can taste some sweet malt. Also, something a little bit fruity. Very crisp. Medium bodied with a medium-thin texture. Very lively carbonation but not much of a finish or aftertaste. Overall, it’s a pretty good beer. Would be perfect for sitting outside on a hot summer day and drinking a whole six-pack. Not very complex, but if that’s what I wanted I wouldn’t buy a pilsner. And, as always with this type of marketing, they get brownie points in my book for donating part of their profits to firemen charities.

A hazy, yellow pour with a small, white head. It has a grassy aroma with some wheat mixed in. The light body has a watery texture with average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a little bit of cardboard.

Contract brewed by Indian Wells Brewery. 12 oz brown bottle. Slight fizzle to the head but it stays around, yellow color. Light bodied. Smells better than it tastes. Gets overly sweet as it warms up. Nothing great. Would do on a hot summer, if really thirsty and can’t find cold water.

Barreras (929) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Pours a blonde yellow in color. Taste of mild sweetness and hops. Aroma of corn and hops. This beer is very simple in taste. No aftertaste and very boring.

beerguy101 (5274) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Sampled on 8/13/2010. This blonde ale pours a light to medium orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, grainy, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied blonde ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral. Sweet and fruity, with a touch of honey. Decent carbonation. Its smack dab in the middle of the BJCP guidelines for a blonde ale though. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Very light tasting. I smell caramel and strawberries. A pretty decent beer. Drank from a 12 oz.

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Clear golden yellow with the slightest bit of haze, a full bright white head that retained well and left nice lacing. Slight grassy hops and earthiness on the nose, some wheat and hay as well. Flavors mirrored the aroma, featuring bright hoppy notes. Light bodied, very lively carbonation, but misses the soft mouthfeel of a true pilsener. Extra points for the worthy cause.

Draft. Gold color with a white head. Floral aroma. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Sweet malt and light fruit flavors. Finishes far less than dry.

Last beer sampled at the LA Beer Fest... Oh man, i was way buzzed by this point, and my palate was shot, but I do remember that it was crisp and refreshing, and not much else.
