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

This is a great beer. Picked some up in Buellton. Oak barrel brewing adds a light, woody touch to a slightly spicy and fruity ale. Five blended malts, English and Slovenian hops. Medium caramel-brown, dark amber color. Good session ale.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Nice oak toastiness and malt emphasis akin to altbier. Notes of vanilla and toasted malt/spicy hop backdrop. Very solid.

Bubbly white head leaves a nice lacing behind. Orange amber colored beer smells of oak and malt. Nice balanced sweetness and hops on the palate. Good job Firestone/Walker!!!!

Color- orange, brass, copper. Head- Big bubbles, low retention, no lace. Aroma- Indistinct. Burton-style w/o the saltiness; Very smoky and earthy; Not bad at all; oaky; excellent at the proper ale temp.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2000
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2003 The beer pours a cloudless burnished copper, the head is portly in size, and somewhat creamy in texture and the color a winsome light tan as it dissipates a thin sheet of lace is formed. Nose is mostly malt with a light floral aroma present, fresh, clean and the start is malt laden and sweet, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is pleasingly acidic with the hops gratifying in their spicy presence with a bone-dry aftertaste, been 1160 days since I had one of these, and I still find it quite drinkable.

Extreeeeemely malty - be prepared. The description mentions hops, but they’re in a mild aftertaste at best. Not a very impressive beer, but might be good with food.
