COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Very drinkable. A decent balance of hops and malt, with a reddish/copper hue. Tasty. Slightly thin palate but a good session beer.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2004
A nice beer. Copper with a fleeting beige head. Floral, woody, malty aroma. Lively carbonated with a watery texture and medium body. Flavor was clean and refreshing. Nothing outstanding but just a nice beer.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Aroma of herbal hops, caramel malt, woody yeast character, light fruitiness. Clear amber color, beige head. Smooth malt flavor, fruity herbal hops, even balance. Medium body, smooth. Well-balanced session ale.

Pours a deep bronze color with a tiny head. Smells really hoppy and fruity. Lots of hops in there. Very crisp and refreshing indeed.

Poured with an Amber color, a white light head. Its an ok beer, I don’t think I would keep buying it though.

Another middle of the road offering of the Pacific Northwest ilke. Nice head and color but really does’nt satisfy. Fairly smooth and lively hopped. Just does’nt do anything for me. There’s so many others that are just like this, I can’t get to thrilled with this one.

Hangover (1084) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 2, 2004
I bought this after I had the pleasure of drinking this breweries regular pale ale which I found to be rather exceptional. This one pours a dark copper with an initially fluffy head that recedes to a film. Aroma is sweet, with floral hops overshadowed by lightly roasted malt. Taste is initially misleading since you catch a whiff of those malts when you drink it, but then the hops shine through. Mostly floral hops with some light spice and the finish is nice, clean and bitter with barely a trace of the sticky malts. Overall, I still like their pale ale better, but this is a very balanced brew. Not necessarily complex, but very enjoyable.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Nice amber colored pour with a medium head. Flavor is a typical red ale, slightly malty and nutty. A subtle oak flavor in the aftertaste makes this beer enjoyable but not crave worthy.

Has a nice floral hop flavor and a bit of wood flavor. (oak?) Has a bready yeast texture. Very nice.
