Beer Tasting Monday - Firestone Walker "Double Barrel Ale"

Supposedly after the style of Pale ales from Burton Upon Trent, Firestone Walker Brewing company actually issues a challenge on their website to brewers in the UK, to beat this beer.  While I think this is probably a little over-zealous and most definitely a challenge that Firestone would lose, this beer is well balanced and quite tasty.  The English hop profile gives this beer a mild and pleasant "grassy" character and the simplicity of the beer makes this a great choice for a mindless pint.  :)
