COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. Canít be done. Weíve honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. Youíre 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

This brew serves up rich malt and hops with both barrels. Mildly hopped, and malty-sweet. Very nice!

Itís surprising how sometimes you can smell and taste a beer and it reminds you of something entirely different than beer. When I sniff this, I get a big whiff of freshly brewed sun-tea brewed on a hot summer day and poured over ice in big cube filled pitcher. Picture this: a big copper tea colored ale with a thin frothing. Even the taste, I could swear they steeped the wort with tea leaves. Give this to someone and tell them itís iced tea beer and theyíll be blown away. Interesting amber, I just canít get over the tea thing.

Great pale ale. Sour/sweet apple aroma and taste. Not too much bitterness. Malty aftertaste. Pretty copper color with a nice head.

I had this stuff just after hiking up Half Dome in Yosemite, so take this rating with a gain of salt. I canít comment on the appearence because it was by the bottle and I did not have a glass... Anyway, it was kind of a heavy tasting beer with a malty aftertaste and not too bitter. Overall it made the end of 18 miles and a 5000í accent much better...

Copper color, medium head. Mellow medium malts and hops. A very nice English Pale. Lots of flavor, not a lot of bitterness. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is malty with a slight bitterness.

Nice floral nose.Amber color with a creamy tan head.A small hop bite at the front but it is quickly overpowered by the malt.A decent brew.
