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.

Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, while the flavor is sweet with primary notes of straw, combined with slight hints of acidity, leading to a hoppy end.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful clear amber with a small, off-white head. Soft, nutty aroma. Incredibly smooth, soft body with typical fruity notes from the ale yeast. Flavour of nuts and caramel. A very pleasant and quaffable session ale. 291005

Clear dark amber color. Some hop aroma. Some malt taste, a lot of caramel, ok structure. Not impressive.

rlgk (17322) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2005
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...

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2005
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Pale chestnut colour with thin beige head. Odd malt/hop nose. Slghtly soapy and yeasty . Mouthfeel is a bit thin with sherberty hop on end. Some tangy hop with a touch of ginger. Just not very exciting

imdownthepub (12919) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Velvety red colour with short head. Pleasant fruity aroma leading to a full bodied beer with fruit and nut hints. There is a harshish dry bitter note with a distinctive dry tea taste, little citric lemon for me. The beer does mellow out, but the unfortunate GK signature hop taste pulls it back.

madsberg (11327) - 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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 28, 2007
Dark amber with quite a short head. Sweet fruity and malty aroma with toasty caramel. Flavour is lovely fruity, good hoppiness, roasted malt and caramel, nice biiterness. A good bitter winter ale.
