Dark amber/brown in the glass with decent amount of white head. Caramel malt and toast in the nose. I got mostly caramel and nuttiness on the tongue with lingering malt bitterness. Some tangy yeast characteristics in there. Low viscosity, very drinkable. Appropriate amount of carbonation.
This is a drinkable, if unremarkable beer. I definitely don't agree with the English Pale Ale label, due to its appearance, flavor, and aroma. This is an amber. I'm not a huge fan of English ambers, which I would classify this as, so I'm not the most impartial reviewer here. Not my favorite, and I would reach for anything lighter that's on tap at the bar before going with Firestone Walker's DBA. Stick to Pale Ales, FW, it's your strength.
