Color- rosy light walnut. Medium head.

Aroma- lager-like sharpness with hint of corn syrup.

Taste- Starts with a mild yet rich malt balanced by gentle earthy grain notes and subtle cane sugar sweetness finishing with a lingering but subdued hint of hops and grain.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted March 2013.

Bright gold colored, with a low but dense head atop it. Delightful aroma: good toasty malt mixed with floral hops--very British strong-pale-ale. The taste gives a nice bitterness upfront, giving way to solid malt and flowery, grassy hop taste. A little bit of yeasty fruitiness sneaks in as well. The body is substantial though not really very heavy--a beer than be quaffed in certain circumstances, but not one after the other. One of the best Firestones I've had. They've got the English ESB style down pat in this beer.
