Clear and golden with a thick head, smell and flavor reminds me of cheap beer, not a fan, sorry.

This with a taste that is heavily controlled by the malts with a nice sweetness.

Taste Rating in Words: It's a pencil in a cool color. There are dozens of them around but at least this one is striped.

Pours a clear, straw color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, wheat, hint of sweet malt, hint of yeast, hint of floral hops. Fits the style of an American Pale Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of yeast, hint of floral hops, and wheat. Overall, weak appearance, quite sharp, decent blend and body.

12oz brown bottle.

Slight fizzle to the head but it stays around, faintly chill hazed yellow color. Lemony, yeasty, grainy aroma though clean for the most part. Ale-like body / mouth feel with a slick crispness. Lemony and grainy throughout, spicy hop bitterness to balance. Yeast goes nutty and actually compliments the grain. Relatively clean after taste.

Not half bad, not as clean or crisp as I would like to see in this lager but again ... not half bad.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some grassy or hay aromas. Taste is much the same with sugary and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but pretty sweet flavor wise.

Fireman's Brew Blonde has a thin, white head, a hazy, golden appearance, and numerous clinging and streaming bubbles. Lacing is minimal. The aroma is of faint, sourdough bread, and the flavor is of the same, with mellow hop bitterness, and some sort of noticeable bite to it. Mouthfeel is medium, and Fireman's Brew Blonde finishes crisp, drinkable, and somewhat distinctive.
