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

lownote (494) - Austin, Alabama, USA - MAR 28, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2016 Medium malt aroma. Pours a super clear red/tan color. Flavor is malt, with English toasty/nutty flavors. Bitter but no hop aroma. Has a strong aftertaste where the toast intensifies. Moderate carbonation, bubbly. Would like it to be sweeter.

thepatrickman (714) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 21, 2016
As solid as a recipe comes. It’s straightforward, noticeably English, and ever-so-slightly malt-forward. It still doesn’t quite capture the taste and dry mouthfeel of an English bitter, but it’s a great ESB.

sm89walt (1934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. A clear, ruddy copper-amber with a small, bubbly and mostly fading off-white to light beige head. A malt-forward bet with caramel and toffee characters alongside some toastiness, mid-fruits and a gentle hop bite. Mid-weight with soft to medium carbonation and a soft to moderate length and intensity finish.
