When you read something along the lines of Double Barrel anything you really are expecting some level complexity and I found this to be a bit watery and didn't do it for me.

Aroma: dry hops, bit malty, sour
Taste: malty, but generally hoppy and a bit thin

Bright copper. Bready nose. Malty with a good hearty body and a nice dry finish.

I’d say that this is more of an ESB than an English Pale Ale. Either way, it is very, very good.

For what it is, this is really good. Surprisingly complex in a subtle way, with wood, nut, hop, and toasty malt in good balance. Generally quite tasty and easy to drink.
