COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firefly is our lightest offering at Jackie Os. We like to refer to it as our gateway ale. Introducing macro drinkers to this beer has proved to be effective in converting them into craft beer drinkers. Seasoned craft beer drinkers also admire the drinkability and soft but wide rage of flavors embedded within this Amber ale. A fusion of Maris Otter, Belgian Pilsen, and American 2-row provide an interesting and complex malty base for this refreshing ale. Lightly roasted malt gives Firefly a biscuit-like finish. Carefully selected hops provide an herbal and mildly citrus aroma and flavor.

ABV: 5%
2013 ABV: 4.5%

Malt: American 2-row, Maris Otter, Pilsen, White Wheat, Special Roast, Cara 8

Hops: Hallertau, Athantum, Cascade

Pours Amber. Smells yeast. Mouthfeel is light. Tastes More of a Pilsner than ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can (draft a few times). Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale, toasted malt, grass, caramel, earthy hops, decent bitterness, pretty good for an amber.

Strykzone (5280) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Can received in a trade with awlcordell. Hazy dingy gold amber. A nice beige head. This is really pleasant. Some nice complex fruit that includes pitted varieties. Just a bit of bitterness from hops that also bring citrus. Gobs of fruit and it is sometimes like drinking fruit juice. I am not sure it is an amber ale but that doesnt really matter.

From a can. Pours copper with a thick white head. Aromas of sweet malt, caramel apple. Flavors are brown sugar, caramel, nutty tones, slight herbal notes, and bready tones. Dry finish. This is a really nice amber ale. Dry, nutty and bready. Id definitely have this one again.
