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.
