Ruby in colour; robust and refreshing in taste, Fireside is a fantastic winter warmer. Citrus hops leave a mellow, fruity linger on the palate balanced with malty overtones. Savour Fireside alone or enjoy with friends, the perfect winter ale.
Sterile filtered from May 2006.

A Mes rate: No idea where I picked this one up from. In fact the only thing I do remember about it is that it was instantly forgetable. Nothing stands out in anyway what so ever. Yawn yawn yawn.

madsberg (11290) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2006
Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. Beige small head. Soapy, sweet and fruity aroma. Has some herbal fruityness in the flavourl. Is quite thin bodied and watery. Light bitter and cocoaish in the end. A bit too vague for my likings.

Bottle, Sainsburys. A dark and malty winter bitter with lots of fruit and caramel. Much better than I expected.

RichardGretton (4614) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Brown beer, standard head. The aroma is nicely caramel hopped and the flavour is quite strange initially, fruit and caramel combined with a long dry finish. Overall a reasonable beer.

Shiny amber, nice creamt offwhite head. Metallic aroma at first, hoppy but also fruity from pear and some grape. Hay and with some floral notes. Flavor is fruity with hoppy notes, grapes and with a hoppy finish with metallic notes. Underrated here if you ask me...
