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.

Aroma is sweetish malts, spices and medium perfumed. The flavor is grainy malts, mild fruit and a smooth/tart finish.

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 woulden’t turn it down if it was free.

Admission: I was sent the bottle for review. And these sat in my fridge for a while before I could get to them to note their availability in Illinois. But the pilsener here came through okay. I caught a slight note of oxidation in the nose, but that came with the slight pepper of noble hops. A light slightly biscuity malt flavor, clearly no adjuncts. Hop bitterness trickles down the back of my palate and hovers for just a minute or so. A decently done pilsener that hews to the style rather than over-hopping.

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.

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.

Metalchopz (2199) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Part of a mixed 6-pack at Albertsons in Vegas. Slight skunk at first pour, but I am ok with this. Becomes grainy after breathing, with mild honey notes. Very slight hazy golden colour with a white head and good sticky lace. Hints of peaches come out eventually in the nose. Kind of creamy mouthfeel. The taste is where it stops being good. Not bad, but the grain seems a little off with the flavours blending with the pils hops. Too bad, as this one started much better.

Bottled. Yellow clear. Some sweetness and malts but otherwise pretty plain. Not awful.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Decent blond beer on tap at the los angeles beer festival, light and easy drinking, pours light yellow, no real aromas, mild flavors and finish.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Blonde and clear with an average white head and patchy lacing. The nose is pale malts, banana bread, noble hops and light herbs. Similar flavor, crisp with mild malts and a light, earthy, spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with a clean feel and a smooth finish. Highly quaffable.

Bottle. Golden yellow color. Bready crisp light and refreshing. Not full but nothing special. Probably just the style to me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
