Another good beer at the Firehouse. Had a little different aftertaste then most other amber ales but i liked it. The Firehouse does a good job in brewing different types of beers in the great state of south dakota meagka (2) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - OCT 7, 2015 does not count
aromas of cereal, caramel and toffee.
red, minimal head - would have liked more on this beer
medium sweetness, medium bitterness with herbal hop
medium body, oily feel, could use more carbonation OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - APR 15, 2004
Not bad for an amber ale but it had an almost fruity/hoppy aftertaste. I wouldn't know how to explain it. It definitely doesn't come close to the Firehouse's Brown Cow Ale, thats for sure. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2007
On draught at the Firehouse brewpub in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota. Pours a clear coppery amber brew with a creamy off-white head that has a slow dissolve and good lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet caramel malt, a touch of flowery hops and a touch of sweet fruit. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a sweet caramel malt and mild citrus/flowery hops character. Finish is creamy, smooth and malty with a slight mild bitter aftertaste. johnnnniee (4457) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Review from notes, sampled 7/28/2007 will riding across country.
Pours a deep reddish amber color with a smallish off white head that displays moderate retention. Smells of brown sugar, sweet malts and a hint of earthy spicy hops. Taste follows the nose fairly well and adds a hint of diacytl. Medium to thin body, moderate level of carbonation with a slick almost creamy mouthfeel. Middle of the road brown ale that while not offensive it was also nothing spectacular. This sure did go down easy inside in the air conditioning on a blistering 90+ degree day.

Tap at firehouse. Nice bitter for a red ale. Nice biscuit malt flavot too. Very nice. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2012
on tap-pours dark copper with a thin retaining light tan head that laces. Aroma is roasty medium malt-caramel. Taste is roasty medium malt-caramel/chocolate, 2nd earthy/citrus hops. aracauna (3707) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Surprise. I expected the Chukkar with its hop profile to be the most flavorful of this bland bunch, but this is actually good. Relatively bold caramel malt and a peppery hop nose that complements the malt well. Best of the bunch. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Nice amber color,no head to speak of.The armoa was caramely with a mildly sweet side sort of coming through and a decent hop presence.The flavor was pretty good nice malt side some fruit and hops with a decent hoppy finish that is slightly bitter but nicely done.Over all not bad makes me wish there was a place like this in my area so i didn’t have to drive so far.
