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

AgentAle (1240) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2015
Aroma is caramel and deeply roasted malts. Taste is akin to the aroma yet yet finished somewhat flatly but it is still well balanced and interesting overall. Nice light whiskey cask notes. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Flagship beer? Not the one I would have chosen In Firestone’s lineup. Has a dull and very macro maltiness to it. It tastes cheap. Not a huge fan. 22oz bomb

Block (1829) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2015
I enjoyed this beer and it had a good hop profile. I haven’t had a good ESB in a lot time and this was a great balance of a sweet backbone supporting the hops. A crisp finish.

elbernays (1003) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from McHughs. Pours brown weak tea colour, again excellent clarity. Firestone beers seem to have this in common. Very good looking. Nut, wood, dark fruit, dough, tea bag nose. Sweet toffee, dark fruit, toast, nut. Light body but carries flavour. Dry sweet wood aftertaste. Really nice for style.

dmac (4965) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Draft at Seaside beerfest. Poured a mostly brown body with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma of crisp grassy hops, biscuit, toffee, bread. Flavor is the same as the aroma. Body has a medium mouthfeel with slightly stronger carbonation and a lingering aftertaste.

Gerbeer (2573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
On tap. Pours a dark copper with light head. Aromas of brown sugar and tasted malts. Flavors of dried caramel, grass, and very light oak. Light bitter finish. Nice for the style but a bit boring.

radio_nowhere (1258) - Maryland, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle into English pint glass, clear deep ruby’ish copper color with light tan head. Aroma notes of toffee malt sweetness, toast, fruity, honey and some oak. Taste adds caramel, vanilla, nuttiness, cracker malt and light earthy hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low carbonation, creamy, dry with clean fruity oak finish. Excellent wood aged ESB, tastes bigger than its ABV.

Good barrel ale, also one for session.
