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.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 Light yellow, slightly grainy aroma, very weak nose. Light lemon, grass and crisp citrus in finish. A little too thin and light.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 4, 2004
For a lager it isn't all that bad, malty, super thin. Much better option then any of the Macrobrews as far a a thin, lighter beer goes. $1.09 for the single, it was worth it.

malty nose, clear yellow body, very drinkable. A pretty decent lager. certainly would be good on a summer's day

Firestone's take on budweiser. Nothing special about this lager. Would be nice on a hot summer day, but so would seltzer.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2003
The archetypical lager gold color on the pour with a modest sized head that is frothy in texture also bright white in color, with the residual lace a fine sheet to cover the glass. The quintessential malt nose, crisp and clean, start is lightly sweet, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is mildly acidic with the hops sparse in their spiciness, very dry, as with most of their beers, a bit too thin-waisted for me to give them much of a score.

minty type smell, the taste is a taste i have never had before. the colour is light and breezy like a cool kiddy pool with a urine concentration of 80%. that's just the colour, the taste is much better.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Medium gold with a small white head, prominent malty/yeasty nose. Malt character is sweet and slightly fruity, has more substance and good hops presence for a lager. Overall a pleasant, drinkable lager.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 28, 2003
A fairly mild lager, with some crispness and faint bitterness. Floral aroma and flavor. Innocuous. Their Double Barrel Ale is considerably better.

garyp699 (9) - Fresno, California, USA - OCT 30, 2002 does not count
A very fragrant floral hop aroma that goes from start to finish. Very clean malt flavor, but a little heavy on the hopping.
