Austin Homebrew “Firestone Walker Pale 31”

In the glass on the left is our Austin Homebrew Supply, “Firestone Walker Pale 31” that we just bottled today. The glass on the right is a purchased Firestone Walker Pale 31. Pretty close in color, ours obviously needs to carbonate and clear a little. The Firestone has more hop in the nose, ours has a heavy mouthfeel in comparison, but with a little gas that will change. Very similar in taste. Can’t wait to see what a difference a week in the bottle makes!
