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.
