Bright golden orange in color with a white head and slow but populous carbonation, this is how Firemans #4 should be. A light. Caramel and fresh, spicy pine hop aroma is just what Firemans #4 was missing and makes for a freaking awesome nose. In the mouth, hops dominate from intake to finish with a delicious bouquet of varieties, even ending with some heavy bitter flavors that linger for quite a while. The hop flavor is accompanied subtly by notes of light caramel that barely keeps the hop intensity in check. I really like this beer!

Big Texas Beer Fest. Light pour with a big, white head. Aroma is lemon, grainy, and sweet. Taste is citrus, lots of bread and a nice finish.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint glass at DH- served a transparent orange brown color, 2.5 mm white bubbly head formed and tried it’s best to lace upon the vessel. Aroma of uncleaned grain silo- like grain that was stored for a year that didn’t reach below 30 for dryness (all the farmhands on here will KNOW what that means), left with the door half open on some days, then used. Yeah, el yummo like earlier. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt definately tastes "uncleaned", hops in the middle, finish was watery. Nyet.

Tap flight at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Light , almost straw colored pour. White head with excellent lace. Aroma is somewhat mild dank dishwater. Taste is citrus and tropical fruit hops. English bitter hops follow. Quite drinkable and flavorful for a session beer. Thin bodied.

On tap at henrys tavern in Plano. Piney aroma. This beer was crisp and had a good hop bite. Waaaaay better than regular one. Had right after revolver wheat and that may have lowered this rating

On tap @ Craft and Growler.
Bright golden brew with a good amount of white head. Nose is great - citrus, sweet grains, resin. Flavor is refreshing and crazy drinkable - what an improvement from the original!

Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Nice citrus, mainly lemon with a little orange, spicy hop aroma. Taste is lemon, pine, and earthy. Crisp and dry. Nice bitterness and refreshing. Really enjoyable.

deep gold from the tapline .. woo! really tasty .. . crisp and lightly hopped .. slight wet dog and green hops .. great brew .. . . And it was fine for the 1930s; the country was doing great back then. Everyone was into talking. But now, in whatever year this is, the audience wants action. And seats with beverage holders. But mainly action.

This is a good one they should try again. So much better than the #4 and so refreshing. I had two since I knew I’d probably never seen it again.
