Had a pint on draft at P.F. Chang’s for $4 on happy hour

Half inch of white head, slightly amber body, minimal lacing

Aroma is sweet bread, not much else

Taste has a slight earthy hop but mostly sweet biscuit flavor, maybe corn?

Feel is watery and light, maybe refreshing to some but personally was very reminiscent of a session

Overall I know English variants aren’t meant to have any hop character but I guess I expected more from the Malts

If this is a proper representation of the style I have no need to revisit.

Wonderful color, wow! Bottle poured well and beautiful with a nice head. Caramel malt and slightly toffee, though subtle. As an English, it was good and the malt was prominent. It was a pleasure to drink, but nothing too special, and many other of the type I might choose first. All in all a good experience and what you might expect from Firestone.

Got one for Super Bowl party.

A good, dependable representative of a British Pale ale, nothing special, but good for a session. Not on par with is British cousins though.

Poured into a goblet.
Look: Burnt orange, translucent/clear, 1 finger off-white head.
Smell: sweet, light malt, slight fruity hops, a bit musty
Taste: malty, a bit of apple? almost a bit of cider, slightly bitter. Not as much flavor as I thought there would be. As it warmed up, there were a few more fruit notes
Feel: A bit bubbly, but smooth. Fairly crisp.
Overall: Not what I was expecting for Firestone. It is a good beer that I would gladly drink a 6 pack of in the spring time.

Pours a amberish color. Fairly clear. The head is 1 finger, white, and frothy. Some lacing on the glass.
The nose has a bit of sweetness to it. Some malt aroma. S
Taste - intersting. I get a lot of flavors, but all are somwhat on the mellow side. I get some sweetness. Some malt. Slight hop bitterness. I almost get a hefe flavor to this beer.
Feel is pretty decent bodied. Some carbonation feel.
First Firestone Walker beer, that I picked up in Iowa, and I like it.
