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

bubbleflubber (2053) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Pours muddy amber, with a fully diminished head, minimal retention/spot lace. The nose is nicely done, of aerated caramel and toffee. Sweet toffee and caramel notes fall subtly behind an initial dryness. Not bad... I get a little copper and some spices leading into a clean finish. The finish is crisp, and very reminiscent of the beginning of the pull, in reverse order. The mouthfeel is a little off... not quite thin, and not quite hollow, but borders on either. Carbo levels are zesty, and make for a light embodiment. Again, not bad, but not a record breaker.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2007
Malty aroma with some woody notes. Pours a clear copper with thin head. Somewhat yeasty middle, with sweet malt, caramel. Mid range dry hoppy finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Draft. Poured a clear copper-red color. Head was thin and off white. Aroma and flavor were of spicy malt, toasted bread, and grassy hops. Pretty homogeneous. Not bad, but doesn’t particularly stand out.

The type of Pale Ale that tastes very toasty for me. Brown,. Not head at all, at least from the tap. Very similar to others, like FlatTire and NewCastle.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 13, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear orange/brown with a tan head. Sweet orange and toffee nose, caramel prominent. Sweet caramel and toffee flavors - this is all about the malt. Nice sweet finish.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Pours a amber colour with a small white disapating head. Aroma of grapefruit hops, floral, and slight oak. Initial taste is fruity with a sweet malt. Finishing with a bitter hop the palate with lingering malts that is light and thin. Lively carbonation. Slight lacing of the glass.

A nice english ale with plenty of frutiness with a medium body. May be slightly too sweet, but a nice drinkable beer none the less.

degrassi (30) - cypress, California, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Tried this beer a while back because my favorite radio personality said he keeps it on tap at his home. I’m not sure if i bought a bad batch or if I was just not ready to drink a beer like this at the time, but the first couple of beers tasted/smelled like soy sauce. After fighting through the initial displeasure I found it a bit easier to drink but this is probably not a beer I will try again (which is odd because I really enjoy their Pale Ale).

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2007
I think this is a well-done beer, but on some level it reminds me of why I generally don’t care for ambers. With a promising start - a crisp nose with subtle oak notes and a nice fruity profile that isn’t too hop-forward - the brew is enjoyable. But as it warms, the flavor dissipates for me and the body is just to thin and soupy to be anything more than average.
