A very flavorful pale ale. I love Firestone Walker's double barrel aged beers, and this is no exception. This beer was 5 months old, so I feel it lost some of its hoppy character. A good blend of malt and barrel aged goodness. Can't wait to try this fresh.

12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a thin off white head. Not so sure about this one. Easy drinking enough but not real exciting. Sweet malt and fruit notes. It’s alright but was expecting something better from Firestone.

Found at Tony Roma’s across from Disneyland. Obviously I expected more from this despite not having a clue what the style was going in cuz the staff had no idea. Was pretty plain. Light fruit and a bit of citrus, hearty bread, quite carbonated, very mellow. I think the food off the kids menu we had at the table was more interesting.

From bottle. Nice head on amber body with modest aroma. Rich, complex taste with nice notes from the oak. An enjoyable twist on an ESB.

Pours a medium hold with a white head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of pale malt and some piney hops. The flavor is malt up front with a slightly bitter backbone and balanced finish over a medium body.

A very nice barreled beer. Pours a bright amber with very little head. Smells of bourbon and a bit of vanilla. Taste is oak and bourbon all the way, quite sweet with a bit of salted caramel. Good pairing beer. Tasted at the Black and White Beer Ball for SF Beer Week.

Nice copper color with a cream colored foamy head. Aroma has some oxidation, bread, earthy, slight berry/orange fruitiness, and herbal notes. Taste is light fruit (orange candy and berries), herbal, bread/grain, slight toffee, and cracker. Low bitterness and slight sweetness. Soft carbonation, light-med body. Really easy drinking.
