Firestone Walker - Double Barrel Ale (DBA) Review

Brewery: Firestone Walker
Location: Paso Robles, CA
Beer: Double Barrel Ale (DBA)
Style: English Pale Ale
Serving: Weizen Glass (22 oz.) 
ABV: 5.0%
IBUs: 30

A (3/3): Topped by a medium rocky head with light yellow coloring.  This clear copper beer Light Yellow, Clear Copper

S (7/12): This beer does not have a strong aroma, but what is present is that of biscuity malt and wet cardboard.

T (11/20): The taste of biscuity caramel supports a light hop aroma and the flavor of wet cardboard caused by oxidization and old beer.

M (3/5): Medium bodied beer with a thin texture and soft carbonation.  This ale finishes sticky with a texture that remain in your mouth after drank.

O (6/10): DO NOT AGE THIS BEER.  I kept getting the feeling that this beer just tasted old and oxidized then I saw there was a bottled on date it was 7/12/12 this beer was a year and a half old, well past it's sustainable shelf life. Also of note, Firestone puts the time on that it was bottled 17:10 which for all you 'Muricans out there is 5:10PM.

Total:(30/50)
