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.

Mellow. All around mellow. Pairs good with shelled roasted unsalted peanuts. Well balanced.

Mixed twelve pack copped from Bottle King in Morris Plains. Copper, ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Faint aroma replete with hints of molasses and bread. Similar overall flavor profile.
