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.

The beer is a clear amber color with slow rising bubbles and a very thin head. aroma of the sweetness of malts, raisins, some vanilla, and hops. The beer tastes similar but hoppier than the aroma. Nice mild carbonation to it and the malt flavors seem to linger on the tongue.
