COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firestone Lager is an exquisite, full-flavored brew with a bright golden hue and a crisp, refreshing finish. Floral hops and crystal malts forge an elegant balance between delicate aromas, a soft palate and a firm hop character.

A lemon and yeasty aroma on this one. The flavor is rather sour with hay and lemon presence. Not much to this beer at all. Not sure if this bottle had age on it or like the tires of the same name, it has QC issues.

Pale yellow fizzy beer I had on tap at O’Brien’s. Aromas of macro brew. Flavors were a bit crisper and cleaner. May make a nice thirst quenching beer, but rather boring. As a good lager should be.

Very light yellow amber. white thick head that lingers for awhile. Surprising lacing [at least to me] Light slightly fruity malt aroma. Crisp light malty flavor with some hop element. Could be a session beer, but probably better on a hot sunny summer day, not a cool autumn evening.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 A thin tasting beer and light in color. Was disapointed as I really like the Firestone Pale Ale and Double Barrel. Bottle poured into a chilled mug. Similar to Sam Adams light or other lighter colored lagers.

12oz bottle poured a clear yellow/gold color with a quickly diminishing white head. The aroma had some corn notes along with some noticeable lager yeast. The taste was pretty standard with nothing to special, just nice and smooth with a hint of bitterness. Not too much going on with this beer to make it stand out.

Poured a clear straw colored yellow from the bottle with a little white head. Grassy aroma with slight hopiness. Flavor is light, watery and only slight malt. Little fruit notes, clean watery aftertaste. Forgettable.

via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a very clear light golden color with a small white head. Light lacing. Big grainy malt and grassy, earthy hop aroma. Flavor is corny and grassy. Light to medium body. A nice, easy drinking beer. Thanks Richard.

Ratman197 (10208) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2006
On tap @ Firestone Walker poured a clear yellow with a small dissapating white head. Aromas of straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of straw, bread and a hint of honey with a dry finish.

Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean, nicely balanced, decent rendition of a light golden lager; if only BMC beers were up to this standard.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Beer is a hazy light gold with a small, white, frothy, mostly and rapdily diminishing head. The aroma is heavy on the lemon: Hoppy with moderate notes of lemon and flower, light herbal note; moderate miscellaneous note of instant iced tea powder...with lemon. Pretty straight-forward, but attractive. The flavor is lightly bitter, lightly acidic, moderately sweet with a long, moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic, moderately astringent finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy.
