Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 08-30-2002

Fire Rock Pale Ale is crisp, refreshing “Hawaiian-style” pale ale. Its signature copper color results from the unique blend of specialty roasted malts. The pronounced citrus-floral hop aroma comes from the liberal amounts of Galena, Cascade & Mt.Hood hops added to each brew.

A: pale orange pour, foamy white head

S: wet cardboard, oxidation, corn

T: adjuncts, paper, off-flavors (especially off-bitterness)

M: watery, thin

O: This is without a doubt, the worst excuse for a beer I've ever had. It makes Rolling Rock taste good. I'm glad someone gave it to me to try, and that I did not actually spend any money on it. Heat may have gotten to this bottle, but even taking that into consideration, it still has no redeeming qualities. I'd give it an even lower rating if I could. Avoid.

I originally sampled this beer on 7 January 2002. I am writing this review from my notes.
Appearance: This pours a hazy amber color with a small head
Mouthfeel: It is sharp and stinging in the mouth.
Overall: Pass. This isn't a very good beer. Go find yourself a different brand

Got on tap from a near by tavern. Served in a shaker pint glass.
Body was a clear golden amber color with a thin barely 1/2 finger head of small bubbles.
Got very little smell off of this one, what I did get reminded me an adjunct lager more than a pale ale.
Taste was very disappointing. Not even the littlest hint of any hops at all up front; small amount at the end. Was hoping for more from this, especially based on the ratings.
Very watery thin mouthfeel, not much at all in the way of a mouth filling flavor.
Overall a very disappointing beer, wouldn't look for this one again, unless of course it would be a freebie.
