A nice flavor for such a light beer. Great law mower beer. Better on draft. No head. No aftertaste.

Crisp and delightful. Fits the style perfectly. The hops used give a slight citrus lingering taste. I really like this Texas beer.

From bottle. Pours a medium gold with a touch of white head. No lacing. Moderate carbonation. Clean nose--mostly wheat a maybe a touch of honey. Crisp, bright taste. Nothing spectacular, but a nice warm weather beer.

From a bottle at some tex mex place in Austin. Why is this beer Austin's local go to? Looks to be a medium golden. Moderate head and a lot of carbonation. Taste is bitter and nasty. Avoid this an stick with the Shiner if there's nothing better.

Straight out of the bottle. Aromas of dried straw, lightly toasted grain, and a slight fruitiness. Light flavors of biscuit and clean malt, a little toast and lightly bready. Carbonation is decent and lifts the body giving a larger impression of a sessionable quaff. Finishes crisp and with no off-putting lingering flavors. Crystal hops tend to give off very delicate aromatics which sometimes remind me of Cascades, #4 has a very subtle hint of grapefruit and light citrus. Light bodied, spritzy, and a dry enough finish makes this a passable example for the American Blond ale style.

Has it out of a bottle, poured a golden clear hue with an earthy aroma. Has a slight head and lacing the taste is very smooth with a hint of bitterness.

Had Alamo Golden Ale in a side by side comparison to Firemans 4. Firemans 4 has a bit more spice hop flavor than Alamo, while Alamo has a slight haze to it Firemans was very clear. So while they do seem to be very simular there are a few distinct differences in the two. Rate Beer will bring you to Firemans if you try to review Alamo stating they are the same. So other than maybe a difference in hops they are close. Both are very enjoyable to drink so I didnít mind have a 6 pack of each to enjoy.

Bottle. Itís a relatively average beer. Nothing remarkable to speak of. Very little smell; the little that is there is almost like a lager. Taste is watery. Meh.

Not offensive but not good or unique. It smelled like a bag of steeped specialty grains. Clear golden color with white head. Light body with medium carbonation. This is better when served cold. Basic malt with minor hops presence. Maybe a little adjunct essence. Not very flavorful but goes easy with a burger.
