Chill haze amber with a large, airy khaki foam that settles in lumps.

Smell is metallic pine, orange, rug and cracker.

Taste is overall bitter of pine with light toast and pungent, sweaty orange rind. It's nearer to an IPA than your old school Amber.

The medium-light body has a crisp fizz and finishes semi-dry.

Light amber color with a small tan head.
Sweet, bready aroma. Faint earthy hops.
Some caramel, late bit of hops.
OK, a little underwhelming.
Not one I would buy gain.

POUR: On draft into a nonic pint. Enjoyed at Maplewood Kitchen and Bar in Cincinnati, OH. APPEARANCE: Deep amber in color. somewhat clear with no real effervescence. Good looker with a thin white head. Lots of nice glass lacing. AROMA: Pretty subdued but I can pick up some subtle nutty and malty aromas. TASTE: Initially somewhat astringent, but reveals a deeper nutty and malty flavor. AFTERTASTE: This is where the beer starts to shine. The nutty and malty elements become more pronounced on the exhale. NOTES: Good looker. Could have probably consumed this at a wormer temperature to be able to accentuate the nutty and malty flavors. RATING/REVIEW: Good/ 3 out of 5.

Look: Amber, honey color with an offwhite, medium bubble head that foams up and lingers softly.
Smell: Sweet. Bready. Some honey. Mild earthiness.
Taste: More bitter than the smell that probably comes from the hop profile and the earthiness noted in the smell.
Feel: Somewhat lively, medium body, but refreshing
Overall: An ok amber but way better than any other mass market alternatives.

I had this on draught in a pub in Cincinnati. It was served in a pint glass. It pours mostly clear but with a slight haze. The color is a bright Amber. It has virtually no head or lacing - only a wisp of ecru-colored foam. I suspect the pour would be more attractive from a can. The nose is subdued but there is definitely raspberry and toasted malt. The best attribute of Firefly is its taste. There is noticeable raspberry but it's tart rather than cloying. The other favors include lemon peel, toast, nuts, and just a hint of vanilla at the finish particularly as the glass warms. This ale is lite and crisp, moderately carbonated, and super-drinkable with an ABV of oNLY 4.5%. Overall, Firefly is pleasant to drink and paired well with a burger. While it's not an elite Red Ale it hit the spot on a warm, humid day.
