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.

Dry hopped cask at the brewpub. Cloudy orange, nice tan head. Big fresh hop aroma, which seems to be English Noble in variety. Flavor is nutty malts with pplenty of fresh hops, both in flavor and bitterness. Nice nutty malt and hop flavor finish.

A clear,dark red beer with a close bubbled, off white head. The hops come in quickly. closely followed by a strong malt flavorto deliver a well balanced, satisfying, mouth-filling experience.

A balanced aroma, not too hoppy but a bit of malt. Head pours average with a good white color and good lacing. Clear amber golor, a bit of a copper look. Initially sweat, then a good hops flavor. Medium body.

Served on draft at the brewpub. I just read the story behind this beer’s name, and basically 15 people survived because firefighter Jimmy D gave his life to save them. That’s 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.

Decent beer and named after a good man and for a good cause. Every pint sold gives 50 cents to a Burn Camp. That Beeranthropy at its finest. As for the beer, rusty brown color. Easy to drink. A heart example of the style.

Sampler from the hand pump. Pours a translucent golden amber with an average creamy off white head. Aroma was toasty, nutty, some sweet caramel, light citrus hops and grains. Flavors of the same...actually a nice balance of the malts and hops. Liked the way how this one came together.

Dark amber, creamy off white head. Nose was well roasted with notes of nutty earth, florals, and hints of milk chocolate. Well balanced flavor with a light hop and caramel chocolate malt mix. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet finish. Nicely done....

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.

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. It’s smooth and drinkable. Nicely done.
