COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firestone Walker presents Solace, an ode to warmer weather in the northern hemisphere. A hint of citrus fruit and clove aroma are followed by tangy dry malt flavor and a silky finish making it an approachable and refreshing session beer. We bring you this beer unfettered, a craftily unfiltered ale full of flavor and perfectly constructed to compliment those lazy warm days ahead. Ideal for washing down fish tacos or other south o’ the border-inspired dishes.

Bottle fresh. Pours without much head or lace. Aroma is soft fresh light bread, lemony citrus, faint clove. Flavor is very similar with more prominent clove. Feel is uncommonly effervescent and just a bit silken. It is simple like you would want it to be but quite pleasant.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-tan color. Thin oily head. A pretty decent American Wheat. Smooth golden malt, miellow wheat, and a nice citrus and clove twang. Medium bodied, easy drinking. Very sessionable. Delicate. Nice.

The aroma is a lemony-malt. The head is white and soapy which thins almost right after pouring. The body is a crystal clear light gold, reminiscent of a Miller product. The flavor is comprised of citrus and light, light malt, backed by a hint of wheat. It is truly uncomplicated, but is exactly what they went for. The palate is gently spanked by carbonation, but the mouth is treated to a light oil finish immediately after. There is a pleasant, light citrus aftertaste. Very nice. UPDATE: There is a sediment factor that I encountered at the bottom of the first bottle. Say goodbye to the crystal clarity of the brew. Once the sediment was added, the flavor was pleasantly augmented. My suggestion is to upend the bottle before opening to re-introduce the sediment to the top.

12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Nose brings out subtle wheaty notes and light crackery malt - not very strong aromatics. Flavour is just as boring, with biscuity, crackery malt, subtle wheat notes, and some floral notes. Light on the palate and very drinkable - just nothing interesting at all.

Golden with minimal head. Big doughy smell and flavor with a sour finish. Light palate and somewhat lively considering there’s no head.

Bottle. Sweet, fruity aroma with grain and light citrus. Cloudy yellow, light body. Okay, seems kinda middle of the road to me for the style.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a cream colored head. Aroma is bread, sweet malt, spice and citrus fruits. Taste is citrus, sweet malts, some spice, tropical fruit and wheat. Medium body beer with good carbonation and a refreshing balance that finish clean. Nice summer brew!

Pours hazy gold with a textured beige head. Solid wheat taste and aroma with a bit of spice. Quite nice.

Rocketman2013 (108) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Aromas of molasses and grain, slightly musty with lots of banana. Large frothy white head with good lacing. Very hazy amber color. On the palate this is medium bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall a tasty example of the style.

From 12oz bottle. Hazy light yellow/orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is OK, but has some slightly funky smell that is virtually undetectable in the taste. Thin mouthfeel with very light carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet, spicy, and with a delicious citrus tartness. Tastes of lemon orange cloves and wheat. Very little bitterness and virtually insignificant taste of hops from start through the finish. Finish is mostly of lemon citrus with clove overtones. Outstanding session beer and a real summer thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
