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

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Flavor is sweet, caramel, with a mild hops in taste. Good beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3327) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 22 ounce bomber shared with grant. Earthy, slight pine hop aroma that is definitely pleasant. Some sweet, toffee-like aromas are also detected. Transparent copper color with a creamy, off-whitish head. Long-lasting, with nice lacing. Attractive. Peppery, slightly spicy hops to start, turning malty and a bit caramelly. Some chewy nuttiness and graininess. Nice maltiness to this with a tasty sweetness. Nice. This is really drinkable stuff. Highly recommended. Great session beer.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottled. Very malty with slight roasted carmel or nuts type flavors. Not a huge tasting beer, but smooth and easy to drink. Low in alcohol so you could have a few of these and not be trashed.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - AUG 6, 2006
Bought at Vons Supermarket!! Wow its cool to live in California. Aroma is malts and roasted nuts. Flavor is the same, loads of malts, oranges and a slight smokey hint. Lots of carbonation and refreshing.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2006
12 oz bottle, via IrishBoy. Pours a clear copper colored body under a very small, very fizzy off-white head that disappeared quickly. Alot of visible carbonation. Aroma is of toasted and caramel malts with a light hoppy dryness. Flavor is fairly light with some fruitiness on the finish. Lighter notes of toffee, iced tea, a little malty sweetness. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, and had a ton of fizzy carbonation. Overall, not the most exciting beer, but it was drinkable.

greenhorn1 (815) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Really clear amber color with a head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. The aroma reminds me of a wheat beer, banana esters, maize, and offset by some carmel notes. Taste is similiar with notes of citrus and a yeasty bite. Not much of a bitter aftertaste. Not too impressed with this beer, but not bad on a warm afternoon.

Bottle from Richard (Irishboy) Thanks! Pours out a dark red / brown color. Smell is malty and sweet. Nice taste, clean and refreshing. Went down very easy. Could drink alot of these. Had been eyeing it for some time at the store where I used to go to school, but I never bought it. Pretty sweet, yet rather refreshing. Probably pretty good from the tap, reminds me, in a strange way, of Anchor Steam.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Pours a nice amber/copper color with a good head. Has a nice sweet aroma and tastes very smooth. One of my favorites.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Tap in California. Translucent and amber colored with a creamy washtub layer of grey for the head. Honey dough biscuits and orange blossom honey kick things off with golden braised pecans, roasted maize and mild musky hop bouquets. Flavor washes over with bran flakes and corn flakes, somewhat meeting in the center and forming an off-centered Honey Bunches of Oats display. Cold and rustic, with rubbery caramel and praline bubblegum traits. Decreased carbonation opens the floodgate to the watered down aspects while caramel glazed golden sweet corn does little to entice. Medium to light bodied and way too rushed. Finish is compounded by honey dough whole wheat bread and some rough corn husks.

Tmoney99 (10795) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a large frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate spicy sweet fruit aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced sweet flavor with a smooth sweet finish of moderate duration.
