12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A- Tawny copper color, with a light orange hue around the edges. A moderate pour yielded a loose half finger foamy head that was gone before you knew it. No lacing.
S- Not much nose, mostly just toffee malt, maybe a little booze. Could have been some oakiness but thats not what it came across as.
T- No hint of wood in this at all, its a very benign toffee malt with no hint of hop. Carbonation is light, but very effervescent, like a alka-seltzer tab that lifts some of the sweet malt off the tongue. Wet finish, but minimal aftertaste or bitterness,
M- Too watery, and again the fizzyy carbonation,
O- devastatingly average beer, with no hint of wood. I should probably be harder on this beer given the utter lack of woodiness but I'll leave it as-is. Its completely forgettable and lacking in any uniqueness,

Double Barrel Ale in a pint glass.
Has some murky translucency in a shade of dark amber. Not much settled on top.
Musty malts with an oxidized apple aroma. Some wilted hop and slight cardboard. Not a whole lot good going on.
This may be a little old. Oxidation has occured and tainted what might be a delicate hop/malt combo for an English ale. I taste some generic toastiness, caramelized malts, leftovers for hops, a touch of estery orange candy, and a flair of florality.
Drinks okay. I like the body. It has middle ground and drinkability. Carbonation is on the soft side.
I wish there had been a date listed after the words "Bottled On". Hard to say where we're at here.
