This ale has a nice mild fruit smell but unfortunately also has a mild mouthful and taste. nothing real special about this beer but if you are looking for something light and easy to drink without a lot going on, then maybe this is a good beer for you.
Probably not get it again...

A pretty desent English pale here and of course it's more malts then hoppy. Has a rich auburn color but not a very tall head. The head fizzles away to surface bubble with some lacing.
The aroma is malty with only hints of some hops. The taste is malty with some biscuits and grains towards the end. The finish is smooth, soft and clean. Some bitterness in the aftertaste.
Another well made product from firestone.
