Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 02-17-2002

FireBrick was introduced in 1999, and is named after the bricks that line Schell's old boilers. It is the culmination of an effort to bridge the gap between the "popular-tasting" beers and the heartier, hand-crafted ones.
FireBrick is a refreshing all-malt lager with an amber-red hue that reflects the feeling of the brewery itself.

It has been described by Ted Marti as having a "subtle maltiness combined with a hint of hoppy taste that creates a mild, pleasantly drinkable beer." It is made with four specialty malts, along with Vanguard, Chinook and Hallertau hops.

From a single bottle into an imperial pint

A: clear copper with a 1 finger khaki head
S: toasty malts, hoppy edge, overall lots of grain
T: lots of toasted breadiness, some round caramel notes, a little spicy hops, and then an extra boost of sweetness at the end...very nice, well put together
M: moderate carbonation, a little thin and watery to be ideal to me, but this is an easy drinker and it is full of great malty flavors
Overall: Well done, August Schell.
