COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gunslinger is light bodied, slightly sweet cream ale. Lightly hopped, it is a perfect choice for the novice ale drinker or just to quench your thirst on a summer day. Although this is our lightest beer, donít be fooled by its golden appearance and light bodyóthe beer gods approve.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Poured up at the brewery where it exhibits a clear gold body that supports a thin white head. The light aroma offers up snippets of floral hops as well as a bit of malts. The taste is smooth, light and refreshing with modest floral hops and a light maltiness. It gets into a lime like quality into the finish. Pretty nice.

radarsock (940) - Vermont, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Had on tap at the source. $5 for the full pint. Pours a light, hazy pale yellow, and sustaining a half-finger whitish head which rested atop. Salty, waxy, and earthy with notes of honey, and cotton. Could have a lot of these, but it wasnít vivaciously complex to order more than one from the bartender.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom - Temecula. Pours clear, pale yellow with a faint, white film cap. The nose holds pale biscuits, light hay and crunchy cereal. Light sweet flavor, good and clean, further bready malt character. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean finish with light floral notes and hay. A solid sessioner overall.

JohnnyJ (4395) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Clear yellow pour, with a white head. Dry biscuit, sweetness, light grassy hops, and some creamed corn. Easy drinking, but boring.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
On tap @ Ironfire. Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is kind of tart and lemony. Some bread, dough, grass, and fruity esters. Light floral hops. The flavor is sweet bread and dough malt up front. Floral hops, lemon zest, grass, and a fruit ester quality.

Caytinator (959) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Itís straw-colored and clear. It smells putrid, kind of like a urinal cake. The taste is pretty bad, korny and cheap. I think something is fundamentally wrong with the brewing process--this is way too bitter for a "cream ale" - it has no richness or flavor. Too light. Barely drinkable. The beer "gods" do NOT approve.

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Tap at Ironfire. Pours a clear straw, webby white lace. Nose is fruity, pineapple, yellow apple. Taste is mild butter, big biscuit, extreme soapy hops, long bitter hop finish. Palate is pilsner like, huge soapy hops. Actually really good!

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bomber from CraftShack. Aroma is like a lightly bready pilsner. Grassy/herby. Med body, almost. It is bready. It is grassy. Itís decently bitter. Fits right in with a hoppy kolsch or pilsner. Itís hot, hot, hot right now, and this is just the ticket to take to the pool.

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared a dense golden liquid accompanied by a frothy topping of foam head. Aroma is mild with scents of grained malts and a faint background of grassy notes of hay that comes across as more real than some of the other blonde ales being made by many of the other micros. The flavor of the drink follows the same attributes that I found through my nose except that there is a minor taste of bitterness and sweetness balanced equally while a squeeze of acidic citrus finishes on the palate. Sure this is a tamed down beer but its one of the higher quality blonde ales I have sampled. I have high hopes for some of the other beers from Iron Fire now.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
22oz bottle. Rating #6. Bright and super clear golden pour with a small white head. Light hops and a little sweet grain aroma, nicely put together. Mild hops and bitterness, a little pine, very clean and drinkable. Nice stuff. (2710)
