Glass - Nonic
A - Copper colored brew with medium-clarity and moderate-high visible carbonation. It produced a 2-finger off white head that looked a little creamy and held well. I got a splash left on my glass.
S - I get a semi bright floral and citrus hop characteristic that doesn't dominate the malty undertones. I pick up caramel, biscuit, toasted bread, and soft peanut brittle like notes. It's a bit dry with dark fruit like alcoholic characteristics as well.
T - This first thing that comes to mind is a Brown Ale. Upfront I pick up herbal, rind like and citrus hop flavors, it quickly unfolds into semi rich tasting malts. I get lots of caramel and biscuit, brown sugar, a touch of toffee, coffee, and almond. It finishes dry with soft bitterness and cloying malt flavors.
M - Medium-full bodied with a smooth and kinda chewy feel to it. Medium crispness.
O - Overall it's kinda like a Brown Ale to me, which isn't a bad thing I guess. I liked the beer's flavorful malt profile, but I didn't like that it was cloying. The beer looked great to me and it smelled very inviting. I would buy it again because it's cheap and tastes good, but I don't think this is a solid representation of the style.

I like the Fireman's Redhead ale....its got a great malty caramel base that is lightly balance by hops. The beer pours a clear rich amber with thin white head that is not lacing much. The smell is mostly malty....with hints of sweetness. The mouthfeel is ligh to medium inbody with good carbontation. Overall its a nice session ale...not the best red I've ever had, but decent.

Poured a deep amber red with a thin ring of head that disappeared quickly. Standard for a red ale. Scents of toasted grain, a slight hint of roast malt and some toffee aromas. Pretty good, but nothing spectacular. The taste was mostly toasted malt, with some slight toffee and nutty flavors and a grain husk finish. There was also a slight sourness to it. Not bad, but I've had better red ales. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, with low carbonation. It drank well enough. Overall it's an okay red ale, though I'd go with Marble's any day.

a real generic American red ale, on the sweet side. this has a rich malty nose of dry red malts and sweet amber ones, the sugar being dominant, and a light toast on everything. tastes like it could have some oatmeal, fuller bodied and smooth in texture. copper and dusty flavors challenge the sweetness unsuccessfully, while the vibrant carbonation percolates on the tongue. the bright feel of this beer is a contrast to its robust sweetness, sort of an odd match, but with a little fuller fermentation, I think this beer would be quite good. for now, its an American red ive had before, and one that does very little for me as it stands. I like the kiss of honey flavor, and the touch of smoke, but the sweetness is just insurmountable for me. overall I really like the cause, but im only so so on the beer.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear, but dark red colored body.
The aroma is a nice wet grain smell.
The taste is big on the malt side, though not too sweet. There's some caramel and mild lemon bitterness. Nicely balanced.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
It's a easy drinking brew.

Not a bad little red... Brown with hints of red mixed in, less than a fingers worth of head that settles to a small ring with no lacing to speak of. Very much on the malt side with hints of caramel and a very light earthy hops. Mid bodied with a light clean finish. If you are looking for a malty red this one is worth giving a try.

Pours a semi-clear dark amber-copper color with a 2 inch light tan head that fades to a thin film. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of caramel malt, malted milk, and slight toffee. Taste is of toasted malt, slight caramel/toffee, and some stale hop flavors. There is a roasty bitterness that lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a decent level of carbonation with a creamy and slightly bubbly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer in all categories. I got this as a gift from my brother-in-law and I am sure I will be sharing these back with him.
