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 very fragrant floral hop aroma that goes from start to finish. Very clean malt flavor, but a little heavy on the hopping.

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 29, 2003 For a US pilsner this is not too bad, and I really shouldn't be surprised when I see the effort put into their Double Barrel. Well-balanced, combining sweet honey-ish malts and a moderately bitter crisp hoppiness.

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.

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.

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

Ernest (6353) - 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.

Decent beer on tap. Had it on tap at Tony Roma’s across the street from Disneyland. The park is a much more interesting place after a few pints of this. I found myself singing along with the pirates.
