A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. Can’t be done. We’ve honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. You’re left with a mild blend of vanilla and toasted oak flavor touched with an elegant hint of English noble hops. DBA is the flagship of our company and wildly popular

Oak, hop, and caramel aromas are noted. The pour is golden with a off white head. Caramel flavor upfront gives way to a more hoppish and oakish flavor. The finish is smooth with some bitterness lingering on the palate.

Great beer. Dark Amber color with medium head. Oak Aromas. Good Palate with flavors ranging from nutty, oaty, and toasty. Their oak barrel processing gives the beer a unique taste.

Thanks to jimbowood as a bonus...this beer pours a uber clear read with not much head. Aroma is floral hops and citrus...a bit of malt too. Flavor at first isn’t too bad...at first it tastes like a decent pale ale...but then it diminishes and tastes a bit metallic...very very unbalanced finish. Mouthfell pretty much watery.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2006
From bottle. Reddish, amber pour with a medium, copper colored head. Some vanilla oaky aromas are blended nicely with some caramelized malts in the nose. A touch of grassy hops gives the smooth, delicate aroma of bit of extra character. The caramel flavors are much more apparant on the tongue, as is the realization that the balance between citrus hops and sugary malts is quite good. Final smack of oatgrain toast.

Oxidation and caramel on the nose, however the palate tastes fresh. The palate is mainly balanced with fruit and earth bringing up the rear. Quick sweet finish.

(12oz Bottles. Draft. 03/2006). Some vanilla in the aroma and a muted, soft maltiness. A bit o’ grassy hop notes. Clear, copper-colored. Very inviting. Mellow caramel and citrus notes in the flavor. Very muted woodiness with some vanilla notes. Medium-bodied.

Bottle at T.H. Brewster. Clear, copper-coloured with a modest head. Weak aroma with notes of cellar. Flavour is citrus and caramel, but the oakiness escaped me. Medium to light body. A good thirst-quencher, but rather unspecial.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2006 12oz bottle pours amber with a short offwhite head. Nice aroma of caramel hops and light chocolate and brief hops. Nice pleasant smooth session brew blends together well and nothing over the top. A nice amber ale..

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
The aroma of this beer consists of malt, caramel, and fruit/prunes. It is amber in color with a good white head that dissolves rapidly. This beer is thin, smooth, and slightly bitter. The roasted grain taste fades into a fruity biscuit aftertaste.

Dark Amber nut color, nutty and heavy malt taste. A good bear for the boys on Sunday. Most girls I know dont like it.....but hey.....they’re girls!!
