look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle into a pilsner glass. Small head which quickly gives way to lacing. Deep amber color is nice. Aroma is citrus--hops. Flavor is balanced nicely, with a good amount of hops. Mouthfeel is medium full, tingly, a bit foamy. I like this one, but it's not one of my two of three favorites.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I had the Firestone Double Barrel on cask at the Old Toad. It was served from a hand pull into a standard pint glass. The beer is bronze with a thick tan head.

It has a nose of biscuits and floral notes. Fresh but faint.

Taste is mild and balanced. It is a session beer for sure. Light caramel, biscuits and some apple. It is a beer that kind of reveals its self slowly. Mouth is decent but thins a bit in the end.
