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

Pours a nice copper amber color with absolutely no head. Aroma is a pleasant cereal and malt. Taste is a real let down...I expected it to taste like an oak barrel for some reason. Very thin. Taste is light honey and marris otter. Below average for the style.

Date: 09/01/08, 12 oz. bottle

Aroma - Malty, with notes of grain and caramel, earthy and herbal hop character

Appearance - Clear amber with a medium off white head that lasts well, and some good lace

Flavor - Dark caramel and dark fruit sweetness, and a late appearing soft indistinct bitterness

Palate - Medium body and carbonation, smooth, slightly sweet palate

Overall - A solid pale ale, sessionable, although perhaps slightly sweet

Bottle drank at the Bayou. Pours a clear copper color with a medium off-white head. The aroma is mostly subdued hops, quite light but nice. The flavor was full of smooth citrus hops, grapefruit and floral flavors. A strong bit of caramel malt balances it out. A touch of fruit, and no notice of barrel aging except perhaps in the mellowness of this brew. Nice though, and I could drink many of these.

Reid (2317) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Average looking amber coloured beer, small off white head. Lovelly aromas though, spicy,malty, fruity..floral. and woody.gorgeous. Mainlly malty ..semi sweet flavours, English leafy hop in the back and after taste, slightly toasty. Kinda thin on the palte..though thats not really a bad thing in this weather. Overall a nice English style plae ale..could be a good session if it lost 1% of its alcohol.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Pours amber, very clear, with a smooth white head. Toasted malts up front, fruity and a touch spicy in the hops. I didn’t pick up much barrel character in this. Also, this felt a bit watery on the palate, very soft carbontation, maybe a bit more and some more barrel character would come out.

Caramel, pine & plywood. The head holds on a while over clear darkish armber. A little flat in the bottle, flavors of caramel, whole wheat bread, lemon, oak & a hop edge. citrusy finish

apshah99 (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Orange amber pour, light aroma of floral hops. Smooth, sweet taste, a touch of grapefruit with bright crisp finish. I can’t taste much of the barrel. Nice on the palate if a little thin.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Faint aromas of mixed fruits, malts and hops, orange, slightly cloudy with a mild head and carbonation, taste is like a mild ESB, with some mixed candied fruits, toffee and hops. Palate is light, palate is smooth, clean with a lean toward some lingering spice hoppiness. The first time that I had this I was blown away by it’s complexity, not anymore, it’s still a beer I like and an above average, every now and then quaffer.
