Pennsylvania

3.7/5  rDev +0.8%

A pretty desent English pale here and of course it's more malts then hoppy. Has a rich auburn color but not a very tall head. The head fizzles away to surface bubble with some lacing.
The aroma is malty with only hints of some hops. The taste is malty with some biscuits and grains towards the end. The finish is smooth, soft and clean. Some bitterness in the aftertaste.
Another well made product from firestone.

A- pours a bright copper-amber color with a two-finger fizzy white head that reduces to a small layer, leaving a small ring and a bit if lace behind

S- typical grainy and toasty malt with some earth and herbal dry-hop bitterness

T- light malty flavor comes out toasted, fruity flavors emerge mid-palate with dome floral hop notes, semi dry finish with just a bit of a tart bite

M- light-medium body, moderate carbonation with foamy mouthfeel leads to a slightly fizzy finish

O- this is a simple style but they do it well. Easy drinking and well balanced
