3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, pours a hazy copper color with a thick off white head with great lacing. Smells of caramel, oak, pine, and sweet malt. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is light and creamy and pretty chewy with good carbonation. This an interesting tasting amber ale. Fermenting the beer on oak made it unique and tasty.

Tap @ Bombolini. Light brown with creamy and head lots of lacing. Smells a tad citric/metallic then bready with a light hoppiness. Tastes more on the malty side with a light hoppiness. Light hop finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a buttery English style malt and not much else. Flavor is full of decent earthly and bready pale malt. Finish is pretty watery but nice malt profile. Nothing spectacular for Firestone but this is a pretty decent English style beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown and clear, thin creamy head that fizzes away soon. Bitter, slightly woody flavour. Light bitter taste, not much vanilla that i can notice. Not really my style of beer so may be unfair to it but it seems a bit bland.
