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. kyzr (1570) - Montana, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Amber pour with small thin white head. Light malty and sweet nose. Flavor was subtle with light hints of hops sweet malt and mild caramel. Nice smooth mouth feel with lighter body. Just a touch of hops at the finish. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2008

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. RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - APR 30, 2008
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.

(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, amber golden with tiny, floating impurities and a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of overripe fruit and caramel. Medium-bodied with notes of caramel and overripe fruit. Dry, clean finish with only a discreet bitterness. Nice and quaffable. 190408 JorisPPattyn (10024) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2008
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. joergen (28365) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
