This beer seems to be hitting the market by storm. I have been seeing it more and more in restaurants and bars. Well I decided to try it. All I can say is wow. I have no idea why it isn't scoring better on here, maybe my review can help that.
First off, its a honey blonde ale, very dark, but clear amber, it just looks freaking delicious.
2nd, it smells amazing, enough said.
3rd, it taste blows my mind. It is very deep, rich flavor as you would expect from an ale, not to sweat, not bitter, but lots of complex flavor. Very refreshing (a word not usually associated with an ale).
4th, it feels wonderful in my mouth. As such my mouth as asked for additional dates with this beer which it shall get.
Overall, try it, and be honest with yourself for what this beer is trying to accomplish. Great job Firestone!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger pure white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with it consisting mainly of a bready aroma. Along with the bread are some lighter hints of caramel and a bit of a grassy and citrus smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter bready flavor. Along with this taste are also some very light flavors of honey and caramel. As the flavor advances, hops start coming to the tongue with flavors of a grassy and floral nature. These hop remain rather light throughout the taste, and with the light sweeter honey fading ever so slightly and the bready flavors remaining the same, one is left with a somewhat crisp and overall light flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is light and thin with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both the lighter body and higher carbonation are decent for the crisper and lighter flavors of the brew and make this one very easy drinking.
Overall – Nothing really too outstanding here. It’s refreshing, but a bit lacking in the flavor department.
