COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light bodied blonde ale is perfectly balanced with a touch of Crystal hops for bittering and aromatics. Fireman’s #4 is a great choice on any hot Texas summer day or pair it with spicy foods to help you put out the fire.

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.

pours somewhat hazy golden with a thin white head and no lacing. Aroma consists of apple juice notes with a hint of white grapes and ammonia. taste has hints of pineapple, white grapes and apple with some spice and metal later on. finish is fruity with some hints of sweetness. A simple beer that reminds me of the cheap grape juice protestant churches used for communion when I was a kid.

Draft at Flying Saucer San An. Golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of white pepper. Taste is straw and hay. Light body.

Pours a nice gold with a finger of white head. Sweet malt hides in the background of herbal hoppiness in the nose. Taste is overall sweet tempered with grain and a good touch of bitterness. Effervescent bubbles make up the feel accompanied by a slight astringent tinge. Not bad.

From bottle poured a nice light copper color with good clarity. Nose was citrusy. Taste was crisp and refreshing with the finish seeming like it was grapefruit. First blonde ale i have tried and would drink another if had the chance.

Pours a nice clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains are mainly on the nose with just a little hop; follows onto the palate. Finishes very clean. A very nice example of the style.

Pretty good blonde ale. Easy drinking beer for a hot Texas day. Flight from scuttlebutts seafood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Clear yellow pour with minimal head. Grain, leaves and herb. Light body with good carbonation. Short crisp finish. Not bad but not interesting

ZacM612 (125) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pretty clear gold color, almost no head. Aroma of yeast and a little sweet citrus. Flavor is similar, fairly crisp. A mass-market-appealing ease of drinking. Just okay. Much better ones are available from Real Ale.

Pours hazy gold, some impurities.. med off white head. Aroma is light lemon, grass hop, yeast, bread. Sweet malt flavor, pils hop. Thin body, nothing much going on here.
