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

Beautiful beer for this style. Buttery, nutty, bread flavor that is typical. Great balance of hops at the end. Easy to drink and great taste.

Orange golden, good clarity, white head. Nose is biscuity, toasty, fresh apple esters. Flavor is same plus mild citrus and herbal bitterness, hints of oak, honey. Really nice interpretation of esb, very under appreciated imo

TheJester (1860) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
355 mL bottle. Nice looking cola brown beer. Mild, fairly typical malty aroma. Not bad. Nice tasting, though, with nice mouthfeel for a 5% beer. Malty, bruised fruit, some earthy hops. Very sessionable.

Enjoyed on move in day. Thirst quenching! So refreshing and still so flavorful and full of character. Nothing heavy or dominating to ruin things. This was the perfect beverage on a hot sweaty afternoon.

Nische (669) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
Bright amber color with a white head. Aroma was biscuit, light hops, and caramel. Very smooth flavor. Clean and drinkable.

sailracer (398) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Tap. Mild oak flavor with some watered down malt. Reasonable bitterness, but this suffers from a lack of a solid malt backbone.

thorongil2 (1187) - , Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
(bottle) bright, clear orange amber colour with a medium tall white head; aroma of stewed fruit, hints of bread and citrus; slightly creamy palate; mild, balanced flavour with a long light bitter finish

Defreni (2600) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Fad: Orange ravfarvet klar med et lille skumhoved. Lidt kedelig duft af malt og en smule citrus humle. Skuffende men drukket på strandpromenaden på Avila beach trækker gevaldigt op på oplevelsen.

sudomorph (564) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
12oz bottle bottled 3/17/14. Pours a near crystal clear copper orange with a half finger, off white head that thins to a ring. Aroma has some fruity esters, a nice caramel, and a hint of barrel. Taste is slightly sweet with some nice barrel characteristics. Caramel, and slightly fruity with a short finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a lively carbonation. Overall very tasty and flavourful. Smooth barrel notes with some great caramel and fruity yeast taste.

A very flavorful pale ale. I love Firestone Walker's double barrel aged beers, and this is no exception. This beer was 5 months old, so I feel it lost some of its hoppy character. A good blend of malt and barrel aged goodness. Can't wait to try this fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
