  • Pours cloudy with a couple of inches of thick, white foam to cap. Retention is average with a bit of meringue forming on top. No lacing to speak of.

    Aroma is straight forward: yeast, fruity (orange), and maybe a touch pear, green apple, and/or green grape.

    Taste is a bit thin. Same comes through from the nose. Additions of light banana and coriander (some type of very slight spice (clove)).

    Very light in the mouth with a zesty carbonation that sticks to both the front and back of the tongue.

    Very drinkable as it is easy on the palate and nose. This is a very light beer but still seems to pack some flavor and aroma, just don't expect something over the top. Delicate with subtle complexities. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • 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.
