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

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís Foco. Pours a touch hazy, dull golden appearance with a slightly off white head. Light, a touch lemon fruity, straw, light estery, grassy aroma. Slightly tangy, lemon, a bit yeasty, straw, slightly sweet flavor. Carbonation is a bit harsh. Pretty easy to drink and almost more like a wheat or light Belgian ale than a Pils.

Ernest (6219) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of lime/lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. In a blind tasting I would swear this is an American Wheat. Itís tart and lemon-limey. The label almost doesnít even commit to what it is..."blonde beer" says nothing at all, although the current label says "Pilsner Lager" where it used to say "Extinguish Your Thirst". So, maybe itís really a lager, maybe it isnít. Either way itís inoffensive but bland and simple. The funniest thing is they forgot the apostrophe in the ***name of the company***. It makes me smile to imagine how many people this must have slipped past during the process of creating the company and its marketing materials. Itís certainly possible they intentionally left it off because they thought the character would somehow impair the flow of the gorgeous blocky all-caps font they used for the word "firemans". And the name is kinda sexist, thatís cool too...Firefighterís Brew sounds stupid, right? This beer is for MEN, dammit. I also just noticed the background says "The Original". Whew, thatís a relief...thankfully Iím not drinking some imitation fireperson companyís product. All right, all right, Iíll stop being a jerk-off, the company supposedly donates an (unspecified) portion to charity, but come on, this is just so gimmicky. It begs to be teased.

My favorite of the three Fireman brews. This pilsner pours a slightly hazy yellow and has a nice clean grain taste to it. Very quaffable and a major improvement on BMC lagers.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with an average white head. Aroma is a dry malt and a minor lemon. Flavor is more dry pils malt with a little bittnerness toward the end. Not great but wouldenít turn it down if it was free.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Not sure where it came from. Pour is an opaque golden. The nose matches the flavor with soft fruit and some tangerine. Caramel is even lighter. Light grain, too. This is generally sweet and easy to drink. Uncomplicated and pleasant.

drowland (6037) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2011
6/13/11. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour with a small creamy head that fades fast. Plain grainy aroma with butter and corn. Plain flavor of grain, butter, and seltzer water. Bleh.

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, itís 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 thatís what I wanted I wouldnít 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.

Finhead (1185) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2011
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.

beermanusa (77) - California, USA - DEC 11, 2010
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 canít find cold water.

Barreras (978) - 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.
