Draught. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a small white head on it. Nose is light and slightly grainy, but very little comes through. Taste is also light and remarkably refreshing, mostly dry, but with a slight lingering sweetness at the end. Quite drinkable, actually.

Had this on tap at the brewery. Pours a medium dark amber that is very cloudy. Smell is a pretty good, maybe I just expected more from the"Unfilltered" part. Good, but nothing special. The mouth was very complex. Oak is there for sure, along with some grains, and hops at the finish. Very drinkable brew, and wish they bottled it.

Light oak sourness. Not to special really. Looks filtered barrel is present. Not my first choice here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1219) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Draft at the tasting Room The ale poured a light amber with small white head and lacing. This ale seemed thin with not much bitterness. The aroma had some mild oak with some caramel malts. The light body ale had soft carbonation. The finish was but more of a session beer.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Radiant copper tone with a golden under-hue. Flaky head holds a sedimentary film. The aroma is like old, wet wood soaked in beer. The taste is fruity, light malt. With a chalky oat and wood finish. Balls.

On draft at Firestone Walker in Buellton, CA. Pretty tasty and better than regular Double Barrell. In enjoyed the malt and barley tones. Overall a solid ESB.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2013
On tap at Untapped Dallas. Copper pour with some haze and a white head. The aroma and flavor are enjoyable. The dominant notes are toffee and caramel but I also get some oak and light vanilla. As the beer progresses I get some light fruit notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.
