adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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.

rosenbergh (6990) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2014
12 oz bottle. 15/214/138/13. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Slightly cloudy and lively golden colour with a small white head. Sweet malt, honey and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is a bit stale malt, dry hay and mild hops. Bland.

Ibrew2or3 (6985) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a sad looking weak near white head of bubbles. The aroma offers up some sugary malt sweetened graininess, a doughy sort of smell, more sweetness and hops that are vaguely Noble in variety. The taste starts sugary sweet with thin rivers of apples juice and pear juice and then it gets into a mild Noble hop flavor that attains almost no hop bitterness. It gets a tad grainy here and there as well. Not all that bad as it manages to stay away from being overly sweet that is a pitfall of this style in my opinion.

deyholla (6702) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has notes of plastic, grass and grain with a hint of sweetness. Flavor has much more sweet grains with a bit of grass and a hint of cookie.

lusikka (6340) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of dry papery malts, grains and sugary sweetness. Flavour of sweet maltiness, some pear, mild grassy notes, dry hay and paper. Light bodied and low carbonation. Booring.

Ernest (6257) - 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.
