There is nothing bad about this beer except that it is completely unremarkable. I reminds me of a pseudo-craft beer produced by MillerCoors, InBEV, or those Australian blokes. Light body, light smell, average taste -- definitely one notch above factory beers but way below the bar set by craft brewers featured within BeerAdvocate.

One thing that really bothers me -- the Fireman's Brew company does not disclose on its website that it does NOT make its own beer. Their beers are contract brewed for them by Ukiah Brewing. Yet, their website touts their fireman "heritage" and even has a solicitation to buy common stock!

I wonder if this company is more about a marketing scheme than about craft brewing. In fact, I am still waiting on an email response from them about that very question!
