12 oz bottle Poured a clear orange color w/a slight off white head. Decent hop aroma. Some up front flavor of hops, than taken over by a moderate roasted malt flavor w/traces of caramel. Decent mouthfeel w/a bitter finish. Solid, easy drinking brew, quite enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 This is definitely one of the lighter Firestone Walkers, with a caramel-colored body and a white head. It has a sweet, almost chlorine-like aroma, clean and light. The flavor is unique, with a definite English characteristic that’s nit quite nutty, not quite sugary, but... Maybe it is... Much like sugar cane. It’s light, but thick, and light enough to seem airy and will make you belch if you drink it fast enough. A great ESB, easy, not offensive at all, and finishes well balanced and clean.

Pours a lightly red copper color with a small off-white head. Slightly spiced caramel malt aroma. Flavor is a light malty taste at first, maybe a little peppery and sweet. A nice transition to a small hop finish that doesn’t linger long and leaves little bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bronze color with small, wispy off white head. Slightly malty and oaky aroma. The malt and hops seemed to be pretty balanced with a strong oak taste, and some nutty notes. The oak flavor seems to intensify as it warms, to the point that the last few drops can taste like licking an oak barrel. Went well with the pot roaste stew I ate it with, and would work well with similar dishes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Rim of whitish foam, pale amber-chestnut beer. Discreet hoppy nose, flowery, just a touch grapey, very complex, yet subtile. Flowery, discretely hopped IPA, ends on a slight carameled chestnut note. Light to medium bodied, sweetish aftertaste. Nice, subtle, clean. English in stead of overpowering.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 On tap, attractive pour with deep amber color and decent off white head. Sweet malt nose with a bit of sugars. Mellow, easy drinking with a mellow malt forward flavor, ushered out by a subtle hoppiness that carries to the finish.
