On draft this beer is smooth and creamy with a citrus, apricot flavor on the finish that is the perfect antidote to all the watered down domestic varieties available. From a bottle the Fireman’s #4 doesn’t have the creaminess of the draft version, but is just as tasty. I had this Fireman’s #4 on a late afternoon and it was just what I needed to tame the heat. While some pilsners can be light and bright, I found this blonde to be bigger and bolder. The Fireman’s #4 is surprisingly deep and full on the palate.
