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

Not bad. Pours a deep amber with a sweet, slightly hoppy aroma. Taste is almost all hops, with caramel undertones and a big hop finish. Defnitiey worth a buy.

fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 Amber color with sweet hop nose. Sweet caramel and malty flavor with a crisp hoppy finish. Smooth and sweet but very refreshing.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2008
12 oz bottle Poured a clear orange color w/a slight off white head. Decent hop aroma. Some up front flavor of hops, than taken over by a moderate roasted malt flavor w/traces of caramel. Decent mouthfeel w/a bitter finish. Solid, easy drinking brew, quite enjoyable.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 This is definitely one of the lighter Firestone Walkers, with a caramel-colored body and a white head. It has a sweet, almost chlorine-like aroma, clean and light. The flavor is unique, with a definite English characteristic that’s nit quite nutty, not quite sugary, but... Maybe it is... Much like sugar cane. It’s light, but thick, and light enough to seem airy and will make you belch if you drink it fast enough. A great ESB, easy, not offensive at all, and finishes well balanced and clean.

kyzr (1316) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Amber pour with small thin white head. Light malty and sweet nose. Flavor was subtle with light hints of hops sweet malt and mild caramel. Nice smooth mouth feel with lighter body. Just a touch of hops at the finish.

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2008

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Pours a lightly red copper color with a small off-white head. Slightly spiced caramel malt aroma. Flavor is a light malty taste at first, maybe a little peppery and sweet. A nice transition to a small hop finish that doesn’t linger long and leaves little bitterness.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle. Bronze color with small, wispy off white head. Slightly malty and oaky aroma. The malt and hops seemed to be pretty balanced with a strong oak taste, and some nutty notes. The oak flavor seems to intensify as it warms, to the point that the last few drops can taste like licking an oak barrel. Went well with the pot roaste stew I ate it with, and would work well with similar dishes.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, amber golden with tiny, floating impurities and a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of overripe fruit and caramel. Medium-bodied with notes of caramel and overripe fruit. Dry, clean finish with only a discreet bitterness. Nice and quaffable. 190408

JorisPPattyn (9165) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2008
Draught Rim of whitish foam, pale amber-chestnut beer. Discreet hoppy nose, flowery, just a touch grapey, very complex, yet subtile. Flowery, discretely hopped IPA, ends on a slight carameled chestnut note. Light to medium bodied, sweetish aftertaste. Nice, subtle, clean. English in stead of overpowering.
