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

dresden (1027) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Amber clear with a big foamy off white head. Oak, vanilla aroma. Caramel, vanilla, slight spicy hop. Really excellent beer but tough to get a high rating, just well executed. My biggest issue with this beer is that the name reminds me of the database admins at work.

Salmoniform (1137) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy copper hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is oak, caramel, toffee, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium ring and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with a drying tannic finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

Prufrockstar (1264) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bomber shared with a bunch of random colleagues of my wife. I’ve had this before, but never rated it, so tonight’s the night because tickers gotta tick. Lovely clear chestnut pour. Toast, bread, malt-driven but with a nice, lightly bitter hop presence in the finish. Medium- body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Overall: just an easy-drinking forgettable beer. Not a knock against it at all, just not the kind of beer to write a lot about, more the kind of beer to drink at a party and forget completely about.

355ml bottle from Saveur-Biere. Bottled on 08/26/14.

Clear copper colour with a white head. Aroma of malts, hops, and bread. Hints of metal but kinda nice for an ESB. Nothing special though.

Theapathyparty (9) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2014 does not count
Pours clear amber with a lasting off white head. Caramel, and nuts with a floral and herbal hop aroma and taste. Lasting but not over powering bitterness and a woody astringency in the after-taste. Slight herbal, almost tobacco flavour as it warms up.

sonnycheeba (3903) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2014

Idiosynkrasie (4356) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Malty, minimally oaky aroma, some spicy yeast, flashes of fruity, British hop with hints of red and yellow berries. Taste is fruity hoppy, hints of red berries, a touch of gooseberry, slightly sweet biscuit malty basis, a cautious touch of vanilla and oak; soft palate. Very clean as is typical for FW.
