COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire Rock Pale Ale is a crisp, refreshing “Hawaiian-style” pale ale. Its signature copper color results from the unique blend of specialty roasted malts. The pronounced citrus-floral hop aroma comes from the liberal amounts of Galena, Cascade & Mt. Hood hops added to each brew.

MoritzF (8677) - Bochum, - JUN 30, 2013
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, amber colour with a mid-sized tanned foamy head. Malt-accented aroma of caramel/toffee with bready notes, accompanied by shades of herbal and subtle fruity hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Solid cara-malty base, but with an unexpectedly soft hoppy touch including some herbal notes; moderately sweet caramel-malty finish with a touch of herbal hoppy spice. Likeable Ale, but I expected more hops character. 29.VI.13

12 oz 7 month old bottle. Pours orange with foamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of pale malt, caramel and herbal hops. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Herbal, piney hops, caramel and bready malt and some fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Average brew.

Lemke10 (848) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2015
This pours a semi-clear color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is slightly malty. The taste is bold with malts yet has quite a bite to it. Fairly easy drinking with a smooth flavor and a toasted finish. Quite nice overall.

HampshirePhil (185) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
330 ml bottle - Bitter quite horrible palate, suggesting compared to other reviews that this particular bottle had gone off. Check of sale by date confirms (by two months! Purchased two weeks ago)

CanCrusher (710) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle 0,355L - birthday gift from Gregor. Foggy, copper colour with small, off-white head, that sits down fast. Light hoppy aroma and a touch of tropical fruits. Taste starts light sweet and fuity (orange), while finish is bitter and crispy. Light to medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Good taste, but I’m missing more hops. Otherwise, nise summer ale.
