Had from a can at their 16th anniversary party.

A - Light golden and moderately clear. Thin head with low retention and little lacing.

S - Light biscuity malt and a faint yeasty frutiness.

T - Light and mellow flavors with an almost berry like characteristic which I'm assuming must be from the yeast. Very little hop bitterness and quite a bit of malt sweetness.

M - Medium/High carbonation and light bodied. Residual sugars present.

O - Fireman's is a well-crafted beer, but its flavor lingers which is the opposite of what I'm looking for in an American Blonde Ale. Still, it is frequently the best option on tap and I will continue to drink it.

From the bottle at American Democracy Project reception (along with St. Arnold Weedwacker), 6.7.12.

Very light amber body, good effervescence. Floral hops, a bit of breadiness in the nose. Taste mirrors aromas, a bit on the sweet side. Pretty good mouthfeel. Very sessionable, one of the easiest drinking beers on the trip. Would like to try the tap version again for comparison. Worth a try.
