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

penstemon (199) - Nevada, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Nice copper color with a cream colored foamy head. Aroma has some oxidation, bread, earthy, slight berry/orange fruitiness, and herbal notes. Taste is light fruit (orange candy and berries), herbal, bread/grain, slight toffee, and cracker. Low bitterness and slight sweetness. Soft carbonation, light-med body. Really easy drinking.

Vignale (2415) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En 6 månader gammal flaska, klar bärnstensfärgad, lågt skum. Doft av karamell, vanilj och ek. Som all FW-öl väldigt mjuk och len munkänsla, mjuka välintegrerade smaker av vanilj, ek, rostad nötter och kastanjer, karamell, sommarblommor, lite kalk och en lätt fruktighet typ inlagda persikor. Snäll mjuk beska som ger en torrare avslutning. Trevlig och riktigt god.

Pours a lightly hazy burnt Auburn with a frothy off white head. Aroma of toast, vanilla, caramel, earth and spicy hops. Taste is a rich base of caramel, toast,, floral hop aromas, earth and a crisp spicy noble hop profile with a touch of vanilla and wood on the finish. Smooth, balanced bitter!

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear brown with white head. Good lacing. Faint aroma overall off sweet biscuity malt. Taste is moderate sweetness with mild to moderate bitterness. Flavors of caramel, toffee, biscuits, brown sugar, earthy notes. Very good for an English bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, courtesy of Thomas. Clear orange color with white head. Sweet malty aroma, fruity citrusy, light berries and strawberry too, dusty yeasty. Sweet and bitter taste like the aroma, malty with a pilsner like bitterness. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2015
0.355 l bottle. Amber color. Aromas biscuity caramel, vanilla and some distant fruitiness. Taste of toasted biscuits, mellow caramel with drying woodyness in finish. Light bodied with carbonation on a low side, very drinkable. Slightly too much caramel for my taste, but this leaves a very positive feeling.

great citrus with a slight caramel aroma blend, dry, malty core on the palate, as drinkable as it is tasty
