New Beer Blog Jackie O’s Brewery Firefly Amber

In this beer blog, we are going to sample a beer from Jackie O’s Brewery.  It is their Firefly Amber.  Jackie O’s Brewery started in 2008 in Athens, Ohio.  There is not much more history after that info.  They are doing a barrel aged program.  Let us get into this amber ale.

It has a clear copper color without a head on this amber. The smell has a sweet malty to caramel notes. The taste has a sweet malty to nutty notes with a malty bitter finish. It is kind of drinkable.

Here is a description from their website (www.jackieos.com):

Find Jackie O’s Firefly Amber Ale Beer

  • Amber Ale / Red Ale · 4.5% ABV

    Lightly roasted malt gives Firefly Amber a biscuit-like finish. Carefully selected hops provide an herbal, mildly citrus, aroma and flavor.

    Firefly Amber is Jackie O’s lightest offering. We refer to it as our gateway ale, as introducing it to macro-drinkers has proved to be effective in converting them into craft beer followers & aficionados. Seasoned craft beer drinkers also admire the drinkability and soft (but wide!) range of flavors embedded within this amber ale. Lightly roasted malt gives Firefly Amber a biscuit-like finish. Carefully selected hops provide an herbal, mildly citrus, aroma and flavor.

In the end, there is not too many good Ohio craft brewery.  Great Lakes Brewery is a good one but outside of that.  It is far and in between.  Jackie O’s, Brew Kettle, and Fat Head Brewery are some of good craft breweries.  I will make a trip to Ohio to pick up their beers.  Amber and Red Ales, I do not go out of my way to pick them up.  This one just dropped in a pile of beer from a friend.  It is ok to me. I am not a fan. I do not see what is so unique about it. I believe others will love this beer.  I recommend it.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
