COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Pours a light amber color. Aromas of fruit, hops, and light caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is hoppy but a well balanced mixture of hops and malts, with a nice citrus taste.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Clear amber body. Toasty brown malt aroma, some orange. Astringent pale malt flavor under light grassy hops. Meh.

MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Very nice clear amber body with a small head that dissentegrated to a ring. Aroma had mostly hops to offer me, which I didnít expect. Taste had more malt in it, but still had a nice hoppy finish. Rather thin and slightly lacking in terms of how much flavor it boasted, but all-in-all, it was a good beer. I would definitely drink it again.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark amber with nice off white head. Very faint aroma of caramel oak, and floral hops. Very watery texture. Initial weak english bitter malt profile, with a finish that is pretty much nothing but faint oak and pepper. One dimensional and thin. Rather disappointing.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - APR 23, 2006
Thanks to 1FastSTI for sharing this one. Pours a hazy dark golden color. White head. Aroma is astringent like soap, a little hop thing going on as well. Flavor is slighly hoppy, not very flavorful. Just kind of "there". Hanging out not really doing anything loud or attention getting.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2006
I picked this up in San Diego. The beer pours to a nice clean orange copper body with a nice white creamy head. The aroma is English pale malts. Light English pale malts. Weak palate at best.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2006
Has a pretty good mild malt aroma to it. Decent hazy brown body with a white, foamy head. Flavor isnít too good, slightly malty, but rather non-pleasing. Light body, with decent carbonation. Overall, this isnít too good.
