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

suprchunk (2510) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Deep golden, almost amber pour. Might be the horrible lighting though. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Nice peppery malt aroma. Taste is my and hops. Dry finish. Good.

GlasgowTAD (347) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Pours orange with a large white head that recedes to a thin white foam. Aroma is bread and fresh cut grass. Taste is fresh, sweet caramel and some slightly off flavour (cant tell what it is). Quite watery. Not my favourite.

sawbuck (405) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Faint aroma of sweet breads and malt. Amber color with a tan head. Rich sweet malt up front. Very sweet...not balanced well with bitterness until the finish. Medium mouth feel. Finish has a balanced bitterness that is smooth. O.k.

Warped_Silver (118) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours light amber with white head that lingers. Virtually no aroma. If anything, slight oakiness. Taste is boring. Hardly any maltiness, no hoppiness just a little subtle Oak. Overall, simply caloric water ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dresden (1071) - 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 (1194) - 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.
