12 oz can poured into Sam Adams glass. Pale amber color with pretty much no head or lacing - looks a lot like apple cider. Not a flavorful aroma, kind of a sour papery malt smell. Weak hop flavors for a pale ale - seems like more of a blonde ale. Pretty bland overall. Finishes okay, good carbonation and bitter bite. Overall it's a step above domestic lagers, but needs some work. (381 characters)

Really like Fire Eagle so I got a 6-pack of this (and a 6-pack of Fire Eagle).

A: Light golden and perfectly clear. Zero foam or lacing.

S: Very subtle breadiness with faint, grassy hops.

T: More flavor that I was expecting. Very clean flavors and nice
balance.

M: High carbonation and dry finish, but has some body in the
middle.

O: Prefer their IPA, but I could see myself drinking a lot of this over the summer. (423 characters)

A pint at Whip In in Austin on 7/1/11.

Clear yellow, no head or lace. Head could not be created on swirling. Malty aroma. Taste is predominantly malt, but very clean. The look and mouthfeel are similar to an adjunct lager, but the taste is much cleaner in that it is devoid of the earthy, corn flavors in the finish. High carbonation and medium-light body. A good summer time beer. (382 characters)

Picked this up at whip-in. 8.99 for a 6-pack. Re-reviewing straight out of the can. Serving temp: 35F.

Appearance: Light gold in color. Filtered looking, no cloudiness at all. Pours a finger of head that fades in less than a minute. The carbonation is vigorously rushing to the top. (this is from my first review when I poured it into a pilsner glass)

Smell: Overall the aroma if very faint. I pick up some yeast notes. As well as a bit of pine.

Taste: up front it is very dry-woody-burnt characteristic but lacking any real hop kick to follow. There are some floral notes buried in there somewhere. the alcohol is hidden away well.

Mouth-feel: it is very light/crisp clean. Body is light. carbonation is great down to the last drop.

Overall: Very easy to drink, took my time with the first can, but the second one i took down in about 5 gulps. Great to see new offering in Texas, and great to see more offerings out of the can. I will have to give their other varieties a try. (984 characters)

2.33/5  rDev -25.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

pours a clear yellow with about a finger of terribly uneven white head which disappeared so fast it was gone by the time it got handed to me.

smell: astringent. straight up giving it a 2 was generous.

taste: ultra dry astringent/chlorophyll assaults your tongue, followed by a malt flavor that can only be described as corny, and dare i say...BMCesque. this beers flavor is two-sided and both were a miss for me.

mouthfeel: smooth enough, and although my mouth is left initially coated, i can feel it drying out very rapidly.

overall: i am glad i tried the fire eagle first. if i would have chose this first, i might not have gone back for another of their beers.

i hate for this beer to have a negative first review, but i am being honest. hopefully someone out there really enjoys this brew and will review it. (828 characters)
