Firestone Walker Brewing Co Lager
What the brewers say
Crisp and refreshing. A soft mouthfeel with bready malt notes and a whisper of German hop bitterness.
What our panel thought
Lovely, brilliant gold. Balanced aroma of light, spicy hops and soft, bready malt. Herbal-spicy bitterness—a bit sharp—balancing bright, bready sweetness. Faint pom fruit. Light body, lively mouthfeel. A bit astringent, leaning bitter. Clean, dry finish. Refreshing, drinkable.
What our editors thought
Crisp and leafy floral nose, refined into gentile nobility. The sip rolls in with a light and high key malt sweetness that playfully tussles with the subtle floral hops before settling in a quick and balanced finish.
