A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. Canít be done. Weíve honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. Youíre 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

Ungstrup (30385) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: APR 20, 2008 An amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with light caramelic notes. The flavor is sweet caramelic combined with quite a lot of alcohol - surprising for such a low ABV beer, the flavor is also slighlty dusty. Too simple, which makes it somewhat boring.

Light brown colour. No head. Malty aroma and flavor, something like the standard Brooklyn.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Transluscent orane amber in color with a thin, tan head. Definite oaky, bourbon-like aroma with a nice English malt (bread and biscuits, toffee) and fruity yeast and sweet hops. Big toffee malt flavor, ale yeast fruitiness, a solid bitterness at midpalate, some boubon flavor, earthy hop flavor, and just a touch of chocolate. Malt and hop balance incredibly well into a long, persistent finish. One of the best efforts of an English bitter produced in the U.S. in my experience. The only drawback is the American oak, charred American oak at that (I hope I am not assuming too much here), that gives this beer a little too much boubon-like character.

Boutip (5181) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Bottle (Courtesy of Presario): Poured a deep amber color with a medium head without much retention. Aroma of bitter hops is clearly evident. Taste is a bit one-dimensional with some bitter hops and caramel malt and a thin body. Seems to be lacking character to make it truly interesting and I couldnít honestly find any traced of oak in this beer.

Clear amber color with thin tan head. Aroma is malty, slighty sour, and a bit hoppy. Flavor is nice. Carmel malts produce a decent sweetness. Sour malt presence seems to have more lasting impact than any hop. Crisp and mostly clean with a bit of a tany malt based lingering.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Draft. Stopped by a local pizza parlor and they had it on tap. Gave it a try, and Iím happy I did. Nice dark amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma was malty, with some caramel coming through. Nice and malty flavor as well with some light hops. I enjoyed this one a lot. Iím going to buy some bottles and see if I enjoy it as much as I did on tap.

Surprisingly nice brew. I had seen it at local stores but just hadnít grabbed any. Nice malty flavor with hints of butterscotch. Iíll grab more of this one.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 Generally the beers I get from my beer club are mediocre at best but this one turned out to be a real gem. Now only if it was regularly available in my area. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel color with a small creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet and fruity hops. The flavor is sweet with an almost brown sugar quality and has strong notes of caramel and nut. There are nice fruity hops underlying. There is a light sour malty finish and caramel lingers on the tongue. I fell in love with this one right quick.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2005
Copper colored with an off-white head. Sweet malt, woody. Thin, a bit tinny, woody. Some sweetness in the follow, a slightly bitter aftertaste. Fair but IMO, overrated.
