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

Amber-red color, decent foam. Nose is sweet malt with spicy hop hints. Balanced on the sweet side, with some toasty caramel and citrus, finishing with a slight hop bitter. Overall a drinkable brew that seems true to the EPA style.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 29, 2003
large, foamy, tan head atop a clear, orange/red color. Caramel, roasted malt, yeast in the aroma. Flavor is strong in roasted malt, slightly caramel, Burnt orange notes, little bit of sweetness, slightly bitter, hoppy finish (a touch of oak comes out in the finish too). Palate is a little thin. A good session beer.

Indra (2606) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Pleasant but mild aroma of oak, slightly bready and sweet malt and a dash of hop spice. Clear, medium amber color and a mostly lasting head. Sweetness takes on more of a caramelized tone in the flavor, mingled with a brief glimpse of earthy oakiness and an herbal, spicy, low-key hop addition. Refreshing finish. Balanced nicely and very drinkable.

Full malt aroma with hints of sweetness. Good amber color. Clear brew. Good full flavor and mouthfeel. Nice beer over all.

Dogbrick (7898) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2003
From Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. I liked the Walker's Reserve better than this but this is still a good brew. Pours a bright amber color with a medium thin cream colored head. Thin lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt, and brown sugar - but it took awhile for the aroma to show itself. Flavor is nicely rich if a little over-carbonated. Very malty with some caramel and fruit. Finish has some hops but is a little weak. I'd get it again though.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Cask at the RAF 2003: Lacking complexity in the aroma sweet sugar, then nothing. Very sweet caramel malt flavour, but not overly sweet as I would have guessed from the aroma. Thin mouth feel, and an unpleasant bitter finish. Unimpressive, but drinkable.

An average beer. Not very complex, smooth with a somewhat unpleasant watery-bitter finish

Good, but could be better. A weak watery presence was noticable, but other than that it was a moderately hoppy brew.

Had a bottle out of a Pack with 10 different American craft beers. Nice amber color, pours in with a brownish head. well pronounced malt aroma and flavor. And the brewpub which I once visited on may way south is great!
