    This came in a variety six pack, glad they built this.Poured a light red color,low foam,good carbonation,not much in the aroma category.Decent taste,would go down well as a session beer.Delicious.

    Pour is amber with a thin but creamy head. Aroma and taste are all about the malt. Very mild and easy drinking but just a bit thin in the mouthfeel. Would be easy to drink several of these in a sitting.

    Very nice aroma. Nice full flavored taste to it. Had it in both the can and the bottle and they both tasted the same. Great brew for a warm day out at the lake. Will have again.

    Got to try this one at the brewery as part of the tasting session after the tour, and then also got a couple bottles to bring back. Pours slightly cloudy, reddish orange color, small cream-white head. Foam didn't last very long, thin lace. The smell is toasted caramel along with some spicy hops. Roasted malt flavor, earthy and slightly spicy hoppiness. The finish is dry and clean. The body and mouthfeel are medium and appropriate. Not overly complex, a smooth easy drinking sessional. Would love to get a can of Firebrick for my collection (only ever saw bottles).

    An orangish amber appearance with a moderate white head. The aroma contains some caramel, citrus, and oats. The flavor is malty with some mild citrus, caramel, and a bready presence. Overall a pretty good session beer.

    Attractive amber body, but the head dissipated too fast. No lacing. Very inviting aroma, though. I was hoping the flavor would be a reflection of the smell, but here the hops seem a little too pronounced for the style. If the hops weren't so bitter, this would probably be a very fine Vienna. Carbonation is a wee bit fizzy, yet the overall weight seems to be right. All in all, this is a nice offering by Schell, but I think it could be made better by selecting different hops.

    This brew pours a clear amber body with a thin head. Difficult to pick up any too many aromas, very cold draught pour. Has tastes of hint of spice, pears and a little bready. just a tiny bit. Well balanced and very pleasent.

    My first time with an August Schell beer. And they won me over with their Fire Brick Vienna Style Lager. Wow, it was very impressive for a Midwest microbrew. Excellent reddish amber color, with nice head. Its roasted Malts gave it a wonderful sweet flavor with just a hit of hops. They made this beer well. I only wish I could get it in my local area.

    A real treat and excellent value. Seems kind of like a Vienna style, but I am no style expert. Malty, flavorful and a real nice beer. The Schell variety pack, with six different flavors, is beer drinking fun.

    The best amber beer I have tried. Has a unique taste too it and it was quite appealing to me. Good local beer and it is easy to get. Try it if you can find it.
