COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firestone Lager is an exquisite, full-flavored brew with a bright golden hue and a crisp, refreshing finish. Floral hops and crystal malts forge an elegant balance between delicate aromas, a soft palate and a firm hop character.

Decent beer on tap. Had it on tap at Tony Roma’s across the street from Disneyland. The park is a much more interesting place after a few pints of this. I found myself singing along with the pirates.

Golden with minimal head. Aroma was light malts, dishwasher soap and some floral notes. Had a corny taste and overly sweet.

Poured a slightly hazed golden color with a small off-white head white head. The aroma had a fruity malt character. The flavor had a clean caramel taste. Seemed a little yeasty.

Probably my least favorite of the Walker Brewing family. Not a bad beer but when drank after the IPA or Double barrel it pales in comparison. I haven’t had a lot of different lagers but this was tasted odd, for a lager. A good beer none the less but if your going to get a FWB beer, IPS is the way to go.

A lemon and yeasty aroma on this one. The flavor is rather sour with hay and lemon presence. Not much to this beer at all. Not sure if this bottle had age on it or like the tires of the same name, it has QC issues.
