Firefly Amber Ale brewed by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery, with an ABV of 4.50% This brew pours out a deep amber color almost brown. This brew also has a nice white head. The smell of Firefly Amber Ale, is rich with hops, grain, and malts. There is also a nice sweetness to this brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavors. You pick up grains and malts. You also pick up on the sweetness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel of Firefly Amber Ale is smooth, rich and full bodied. The aftertaste is smooth and rich. I like how this brew is different from most brews on the market. Firefly Amber Ale has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. Overall I'm giving Firefly Amber Ale a 4.25 out 5. Jackie O's Pub & Brewery did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again. Thank you Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Appearance: This fine amber ale pours a dark golden color and is topped with 3/8” of white head that dissipates to a thin layer.
Smell: The aroma of this amber is a nice blend of malt and hops that is rather different from most ambers that I have had.
Taste: Hops play a leading role in this beer and they call it a amber but it tastes like a pale ale of even a IPA.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied amber that goes down smooth and has great hop profile for the style, I love what Jackie O’s did with this beer.

Firefly Amber Ale - Jackie O's Pub & Brewery. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this beer's head is 1 finger thick and slightly off white, with a small bit of lacing, and a medium amber body.

I smell the toasted malts mentioned on the can, along with a fair amount of frutier hops.

Tastes like much of the same attributes mentioned above. A nice balanced blend of tastes going on here.

Mouthfeel of this product is smooth and clean. Just a tad of hop bite that quickly goes away.

Overall, I'll give Firefly Amber Ale - Jackie O's Pub & Brewery a 4.25. I may pick this up again throughout this summer.
