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.

Fireman’s 4 is a solid everyday drinker but this is much better all around. Very very good. I could drink lots of these on a summer night even though Blonde Ale generally bore me.

Draft at Oak Street Tap House Denton. Light gold and slightly hazy. Very light nose almost imperceptible. Interesting hop flavors with a malty backbone. Deeper, darker, danker, than the original. A different and better beer.

Hazy yellow with a whitish head. Fruity and floral, this is really well done. A vast improvement over the regular Fireman’s No. 4

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugarl Land.
Pours an average yellow with a nose of weak grapefruit and light orange peel. Flavor is detergent and hops, with a light floral and honey finish. Soapy mouthfeel. This doesn’t work for me; the blond is fighting the hops and the drinker is losing.
