I

love what Firemans Brew is doing not only with their beer but, in their community by donating a portion of their profits to the National Firefighters Foundation in Emmitsburg, Maryland.  We all love our Firemen and they are a huge part of our communities so know that when you buy some great beer from Firemans Brew your are not only helping out your taste buds but, also Fireman and their families.

The Pour:

Pours a dark amber with about a finger of fluffy off-white head that faded pretty quickly. Left some slight lacing.

The smell:

Amber hops, lots of caramel malt, maybe some toffee and dry, dark fruit. Nothing too overwhelming.

The Taste:

The taste stays with the nose with lots of caramel and roasted malts and has a really nice bready, dark malt flavor. I also got some brown sugar, a touch of toffee and coffee.  It finishes dry with soft bitterness and cloying malt flavors.

The Mouthfeel:

Decent carbonation. Kind of thin and a little watery.

The Verdict:

The Redhead Ale is just your basic, straight forward red ale and it wasn’t one of the best brews that I have ever come across but, it was decent and I wouldn’t turn one down if it was handed my way. It won’t hurt you to give it a shot and even if you hate it you still helped out a good cause.
