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.

I first thought I had tasted this brew last weekend at the Firestone picnic and I was most impressed. Now I know it must have been the Double Barrel Ale or perhaps the Special Reserve. The tap said lager but now that I have tasted the real lager (bottle) it is clear the one on Saturday was marked incorrectly. The lager tonight poured straw yellow with a small white head. The nose was faint but you did pick up a little hops. The first taste was slightly thin with some hops but without any malt at all. Finish was dry without any lingering taste. This was sort of like a Heineken or another European pilsner.

Mediium gold with a tiny bit of white head. Yeasty malt aroma, with a malty flavor with the carbonation tingling your tongue like most lagers, but better flavor than the macro lagers.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Draught at O’Briens: Clear yellow, no head or lacing.. The nose is lightly hoppy with some citrus malt qualities and a surprisingly chewy malt backdrop. The flavor is chewy and nicely malty too. It’s just the perfect level of citrus notes. Lots of character for a lager.

Aroma was grainy and of corn. Goleden botdy color with white head. Flavor had a hevey feel like it was poured on wet cardboard or a wet towel and I had to make an effort to drink this one. Should be no need for effort while having a beer. Well it was wet and I drank it because I was thirsty now I’ll have to find one to quench the taste of this one.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Very light amber color well carbonated with a nice foamy head. Malty sweet aroma, earthy on the nose. Semi-sweet flavor, fairly well balanced, citrus and malt notes. Very quaffable. Not bad.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Bottle poured yellow with a small fizzy head. Grassy malt aroma. Flavor is grassy with sweeyt malty finish. Basic micro swill. Almost a drain pour.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 26, 2005
On tap: Looked to be a straw gold but thin in its density. Small covering of film as a head. Aroma was faint and was virtually undetectable. Flavor was weak and showed to have a watered down flavor. I will pick up a single 12oz of this if i ever see it to re-rate. My notes were minimal on this.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Sort of Bud like. Bland and watery with lots of corn and grain flavor. Not really good, but not offensive, just bland.

Draft. Light golden with a low white head. Grassy/floral aroma/flavor. A little thin. Not much going on.
