Review – Firemans Brew Redhead Ale
From Firemans Brew – This rich red ale is the most distinguished beer in the Fireman’s Brew line. This 3-time Gold Medal winner is made from a combination of 5 different malts and several Yakima Valley Hops. The use of “crystal malt” in the brewing process imparts a rich caramel essence. This great combination creates a flavor packed red ale like you’ve never had before.
