355ml bottle from Ales by Mail. Pours pale gold, light haze, thin white head. Aromas of grassy, floral hops. Light, creamy malt notes. Taste is dry, a little buttery, light astringent finish. cubs (10639) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a touch hazy, dull golden appearance with a slightly off white head. Light, a touch lemon fruity, straw, light estery, grassy aroma. Slightly tangy, lemon, a bit yeasty, straw, slightly sweet flavor. Carbonation is a bit harsh. Pretty easy to drink and almost more like a wheat or light Belgian ale than a Pils. drowland (8829) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2011
6/13/11. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour with a small creamy head that fades fast. Plain grainy aroma with butter and corn. Plain flavor of grain, butter, and seltzer water. Bleh. Ibrew2or3 (8660) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a sad looking weak near white head of bubbles. The aroma offers up some sugary malt sweetened graininess, a doughy sort of smell, more sweetness and hops that are vaguely Noble in variety. The taste starts sugary sweet with thin rivers of apples juice and pear juice and then it gets into a mild Noble hop flavor that attains almost no hop bitterness. It gets a tad grainy here and there as well. Not all that bad as it manages to stay away from being overly sweet that is a pitfall of this style in my opinion. lusikka (7814) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of dry papery malts, grains and sugary sweetness. Flavour of sweet maltiness, some pear, mild grassy notes, dry hay and paper. Light bodied and low carbonation. Booring.

In a blind tasting I would swear this is an American Wheat. It’s tart and lemon-limey. The label almost doesn’t even commit to what it is..."blonde beer" says nothing at all, although the current label says "Pilsner Lager" where it used to say "Extinguish Your Thirst". So, maybe it’s really a lager, maybe it isn’t. Either way it’s inoffensive but bland and simple. The funniest thing is they forgot the apostrophe in the ***name of the company***. It makes me smile to imagine how many people this must have slipped past during the process of creating the company and its marketing materials. It’s certainly possible they intentionally left it off because they thought the character would somehow impair the flow of the gorgeous blocky all-caps font they used for the word "firemans". And the name is kinda sexist, that’s cool too...Firefighter’s Brew sounds stupid, right? This beer is for MEN, dammit. I also just noticed the background says "The Original". Whew, that’s a relief...thankfully I’m not drinking some imitation fireperson company’s product. All right, all right, I’ll stop being a jerk-off, the company supposedly donates an (unspecified) portion to charity, but come on, this is just so gimmicky. It begs to be teased.

355ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, strawy aroma. Taste is wet strawy, a fruity, hoppy touch of lemon. Simple, monotonous, boring. Strykzone (7424) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Not sure where it came from. Pour is an opaque golden. The nose matches the flavor with soft fruit and some tangerine. Caramel is even lighter. Light grain, too. This is generally sweet and easy to drink. Uncomplicated and pleasant. BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
12oz bottle on 26th May 2016 while on holiday at my daughters in California. Slight haze to my blonde, weak white head. Corn or grain like feel to both the nose and taste, not a great beer to be honest, fairly bland and uninteresting. JStax (6913) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2016
12 ounce bottle from a friend. Hazed gold with a white head of foam. Grainy, toasty honey notes in the aroma. Sweet and doughy in the taste. High carbonation. Prickly mouthfeel. Medium body.
