This golden-hued ale has a distinctively balanced malt character and finishes with light toffee notes, a suggestion of nuts, and a clean brisk bitterness. The aroma is fruity and floral, with hints of orange from the hops, a soft smokiness, and vanilla from the medium toasted oak. NOTE: no longer made, replaced by the Firestone Pale Ale (an APA, not an EPA).

Top rate beer. Very flavorful, hoppy with strong malt nose. The Burton Union system has been revived for a great beer.
