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. 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.

scanman (149) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Great flavors and aromas. Complex malt, berry, oak, hops, apple, brown sugar, iced tea. This is fun on its own. The kinda beer you don’t want to eat with. Nice smooth bubbly finish.

mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours a copper-amber body with a small white head. Aroma is malty and simplistic - bread is apparent without much else though there is some faint orangey chocolate. The flavour is light and APA-like with some orange hops and a strange bread/caramel texture. Drinkable but pretty boring overall.

Tap

Pours red-brown, a typical amber ale. Hints of citrusy hops and brown-sugar malt on the aroma, straightfoward amber-ale taste, enough hops to keep it from being disappointing, enough malt to keep it from being too thin -- but not enough of either to make it more than yet another drinkable amber ale.

JohnnyJ (4359) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2006
An english pale ale? Doesn’t seem like it. Sweet, fruity aroma. Flavors of fruit and a little caramel. Weak, sweet, not much hops to balance it out. Not very good.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Dark amber body, small tan head fades quickly. Muted citrus, orange candy, resin. Light resiny citrus carries over to the flavour with mute malt as well. Average palate. Pretty mediocre but not off putting. 5/2/5/3/10

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle shared with HTH, Jerc, MDS, Harry’s bottle. Orange, frothy bubbly white head. Mild malt, hop aroma - like an amber with some citrus. Decent soft malt taste, some orange citrus, so light malts, pretty damn mild though. Weak short finish. Average stuff, I haven’t been terribly impressed with either beer I’ve had from the bottle from these guys so far.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 Bottle (650ml). Shared with jerc, mds and tupalev, my bottle. Clear deep amber with dimishing white head. Sweeet light aroma of sugary malt, slightly vegetal grain, grassy hops. Taste of sourish grain, cream, stale hops - sourish, weak mouthfeel - ehh. *** re-rated March 3 2009 - what the hell was I thinking? This is a fine beer - nice wood and light juicy malt.

Sampled many times from various Keg. Mostly in Solvang after 103 hard riding miles... and now at the local Red Robin in Palmdale. Dark amber with nice White head, smells a bit of carmel and flowers Flavor very smooth with a great pain killing effect after 16 oz. The body says, "whoa, thats was good, one more will do nicely"
