Pretty damn good. Strong, full flavor with no objectionable qualities. Fairly cheap, strong enough, and easy to put down. Love the dry hopped flavor; this beer has a certain dignity to it that the regular Fireman's Four just barely misses. Don't get me wrong, Fireman's Four is a great beer, but Four Squared is just that - Four "squared." Rich, thick, with good carbonation and a universally good flavor. I could honestly not see anybody who likes beer having a problem with this brew. It's not too-much or too-little of anything. It tastes great without venturing into the more adventurous flavors which non-craft-fans may not enjoy. For those new to Real Ale who prefer more standard beers, I would start here. If you're feeling adventurous or want something that's stronger than necessary and has a crazy flavor, try their Devil's Backbone. Either way this is a company that makes great product and you're in good hands buying any of their beers

I first had this on tap at Real Ale during an anniversary party, long before I started reviewing beers apparently. I was glad to see it is now in cans. Thanks to @Xicanobeerrun for the trade!
This pours from the can a solid yellow tan color, like a dark lemon jello color. There’s a underprounced straw-grass hop aroma on it which lends itself to a crisp, straw/grassy characteristic as it’s sipped. The seasons haven’t changed to fall where I live yet but this beer is making me think it would be the perfect autumn IPA sipper.
