In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Firestone Walker Firestone Lager (2018)

Aroma: “Clean, mild malt with an undercurrent of earthy hops. There’s a slightly sweet grainy aroma, some floral notes, and a subtle whiff of sulfur.”

Flavor: “A little sweet in the start with a fair amount of bitterness on the finish. In the middle, it’s light clean malt, bread notes, and subtle sweetness. The hops bitterness is restrained.”

Overall: “More Midwest than mid-Continent. Easy drinking, soft and unassuming. A little on the sweet side at first, but balanced with a fairly bitter finish.”
