The first in my “Lone Star State” series…As I’m going to be leaving Texas behind in a few weeks, I’m focusing my next few reviews on Texas beers while they’re still easily available to me.
Tonight I’m having a Fireman’s #4 Blonde Ale from the Real Ale brewing company in Austin, Texas. Fireman 4 isn’t really a winter drink as it’s a lightweight, low alcohol beer perfectly suited for quenching the thirst caused by a hot Texas summer, but it’s also my favorite Real Ale brew. It’s malty, starting with a hint of sweetness and is easy drinking and refreshing, not a sipping beer.
I’d give it a 3.2 out of 5.
