COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in memory of Deputy Chief James D'Heron of the New Brunswick Fire Dept. A portion of every sale will be donated to The Children's Burn Camp of the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation. An Irish-style red ale brewed with emphasis on balance. Malty-sweet accents from Vienna malt blend nicely with a variety of English hops leaving a clean, crisp finish. Rich caramel malt and a touch of roasted barley lends an appealing deep red hue.

Above-average Irish ale. Usually I find these dull, boring and lacing flavor. However, this offering was quite the opposite. The Firehouse Red poured an amber color with a thick off-white head and laced nicely around the glass. The nose was really well-balanced, featuring plenty of caramel and bready malts, but also quite a bit of bright hops. The flavors were very solid, delicious and also very well-balanced. I tasted the caramel malt and some bready flavors, but the beer contained quite the hop kick. Itís smooth and drinkable. Nicely done.

Draft at HM. Pours a nice reddish amber color with a small slightly off white head. Aroma is of caramel, light biscuit, mild fruit and some dry floral bitterness. Taste is caramel malt, light dry grainy malts, some mild floral bitterness. Easy drinking and rather well done, but this style is very Yawn boring.

DrAFT AT THE BrEw PUb. Poured a mostly clear reddish amber body with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma wasnít anything special notes of dry grains, light caramel, hint of molasses. Body is medium to slightly fuller with average carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of dry toast, grains, cereal, molasses, hint of rye seeds and some caramel. Flavor better then the aroma but still a boring style.

some nut and some cocoa with fruit punch on the outside of the flavor profile. malt and hop in the middle with a light bit of hop sting in the palate. demonstrative and inviting. mellow mouthfeel with a touch of syrup though substantial, interesting red beet color.

Served on draft at the brewpub. I just read the story behind this beerís name, and basically 15 people survived because firefighter Jimmy D gave his life to save them. Thatís a true American and New Jersey hero. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a large creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of earthy, almost peaty notes and toffee malts. The taste is similar with a slight lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

On tap at Harvest Moon. Pours a hazed caramel ruby amber with a thin white head. Aromas of coffee, toast, cocoa, and nutty malt. Medium bodied, chocolaty roast and toast, nice nutty malt. Lots of body and flavor in here. Unexpected. Slow malty finish with a nice long slow bitterness. Tasty. Coffee and toast linger.

had at harvest moon. Poured into a pint glass and pours a nice dark red color well balanced with good aromas of malts, grains and some citrus. The aromas arenít that complex though medium bodied with a nice feel and flavors of malts and grains. Lacking a slight bit on the feel too A good beer. Balanced and easy drinking, but a bit hollow.

Draft. Pours medium amber with an off white head. Sweet and toasty malty aroma. The flavor has toasty malts, a light sweetness, and a dry finish. Not bad.
