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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: A medium amber, perhaps a little dark for the style, but oh well.. Not very much head, but merely some white bubbles floating on top.

S: Slight hop notes.. it smells a bit damp and earthy.. There is a bit of sweetness in there, perhaps in the form of a carmel scent.

T: A good bit of citrus hops at the beginning, then a malty caramel sweetness comes across. Fairly well balanced.

M: Slightly slick and perhaps a little undercarbed. I am not a big fan of the mouthfeel on this one.

D: Good over all, but forgettable. A decent session beer, but I probably would choose other options over this one.

Reviewed on 11-22-09
Reviewed cold from a bottle to a glass

A - Dark orange color, pretty good carbonation, 1 finger of foam, decent head retention

S - Faint citrus smell and hop smell. Heavy on the malt aroma

T - Medium bodied, heavy in the malt category. Full flavored feeling going down with a bitter aftertaste

M/D - A medium bodied brew with a pretty heavy malt taste. I didn't notice any real sweet taste sine I thought the citrus smell was on the light side. This was the last of a 4-pack of brew that a buddy brought back for me. I'm glad I had tried it but wouldn't look for it in the future. If you get the chance to try one I would recommend it but this brew wasn't there for me.

The beer as it evacuates the 12 ounce brown bottle pours a slightly hazy golden amber color, the head is portly in size, spumescent in texture and the color a bright white with the lace a satin like curtain to drape the glass. Nose is sweet malt, crisp and clean to the senses with the start sweet, nicely malted and the top middling in its feel. The acidity mild at the finish and the hops personable in their spiciness, quite dry and a nice drinking beer that just fits the 100 degree temperature today.
