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

downender (7627) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine, Sterling VA. Deep amber, with a decent, off-white, head. Sweet, caramel malts, some hedgerow fruits, oily hops and a semi-bitter finish. A bit heavy going, but ok.

seymour (1827) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Enjoyed on tap in a tulip glass at Reed’s American Table in Maplewood, clear copper colour with weak off-white foam, lasting with lace. Malty, bready, biscuity, caramel, hint of toffee, classic English-style marmalade hoppy balance. Earth, wood, vanilla. Medium body and carbonation, nice round mouthfeel. Extremely smooth, multi-layered, well-balanced, nuanced. Delicious, so easy to drink.

wombat23 (294) - Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Crystal clear pale amber with off-white head. Lacing lingers on the glass. Aromas of malt and traces of oak. Taste: lightly toasted malt, oak, toffee and fruit notes. Gentle bitter finish. Solid beer.

Metalchopz (2954) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2015
Purchased at Trader Joe in Vegas. Pours an amber colour with a warm cap and decent lacing. Hoppy fresh grass aromas with fruity malts. Fruity malts taste as well with some nice grain, middle bitterness and caramel. This is quite a nice fruity, but not over-the-top ale.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured amber, clear with a nice tan head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of grain and fruit. Taste is caramel, fruit and vanilla balanced with some bitter hops. Very good beer, very easy to drink and very enjoyable.

tfontana (470) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2016 Bottle pour into pint glass from The Drinkery, Londonderry, NH. Aroma is yeasty dough over bready malt, caramel, vanilla--a little unfinished smelling (like wert). Appearance is hazy orange-brown with less than finger-width head, decent sparkle and lacing. Taste is caramel, bready moderate sweetness with tinge of oak. Palate is medium bodied with smooth texture and carbonation slightly on the lively side. Finish is sweet with a bit of oakiness. Overall, a decent beer. A bit on the old side so may not be the best rating.
