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

This ale pours a clear tawny amber color. Moderate carbonation and low head retention. Fruity, spicy, yeasty aroma wafts from the lip of my glass. Undercurrent of biscuit, bread, toffee, and caramel in nose. Prominent fruity British yeast character at first sip fades into a nice balance of toasted biscuits and earthy English hops. Woody flavor of hops mingled with oak sticks in the finish. Smooth and medium-bodied session brew in the tradition of an English bitter. Thanks to lostbearbrew and BIF 23 for this sample.

Had this beer in a 22 oz bomber purchased at a local grocery store that has a pretty good craft selection.


A: Nice medium to dark amber color, clear, with lots of carbonation. ~1" of pale white foam lasted most of the drink.

S: Slight candy and caramel sweetness under the toasted malt, faintly spicy and a little floral from the hops.

T: Nice balanced malt sweetness (which I really liked!), with lots of caramel and bread notes. I also picked up the spicyness of the hops with balanced the sweetness for me.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with plenty of carbonation that balances the malt sweetness nicely.

D: I I could lay under a tap and drink it all night.

I thought this beer was very easy to drink, great taste, and one that I enjoyed very much.

An English Style Pale Ale from the west coast. Crystal Malt with ample hops to offset and a nice dry finish.

Probably better on tap as it is pretty average from the bottle here on the east coast. Amber to copper in color, little head and not much body. More dry than complex, but not a bad beer. Just not distinguished in any way.

A nice pale ale, enjoy.
