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!

Clear golden with a small off-white head that leaves the glass clean on the way down.
The aroma is of simple grain and some dishrag, unfortunately. Simple, yet not particularly pleasant.
The flavor is similar to the aroma, with simple grain, low bitterness, and a bit of earthy yeast character.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Not that good, but completely expected for the given style.

Picked up a 6 pack while in Paso Robles for the FW invitational. Pours a yellow beer, white head, nothing exceptional going on. Aroma was cereal grain and not much else, barely present hop aroma going on.
Clean taste, mild mouthfeel, grain presence. Easy to drink, slightly bitter aftertaste, but nothing that should scare any seasoned beeradvocate. A decent beer, worth having around for other's to drink. You've had lots of iterations of this beer, this is the local brewery easy go to drink for the non beer drinker. It is what it is. You know what kind of beer I'm describing. Its an all barley version of BMC basically. Slightly better, a little more ooomph, but nothing special.
