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

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 (2301) - 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.

Draught. Poured red amber with thin head. Spicy aroma, with much floral. Malty flavour, with a bit of flatness also toast notes. Balanced finish.

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

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 itís complexity, not anymore, itís still a beer I like and an above average, every now and then quaffer.

Quite suprised that I haven’t reviewed this beer yet. I’ve enjoyed it several times in both bottle and on tap. Each time was a very enjoyable beer, but I think I prefer it out of the bottle a bit more.

The beer pours out a rich amber color with a thin one-finger thick head. An aroma of sweet, undefined malts with just a touch of earthy, floral hops. Flavors had a nice caramel-like sweetness combined with smooth finish and a nice bitter swallow. Always a nice beer to go to when the choices are slim.

22 oz. bottle - pours orange-amber and clear; white head quickly fades; aromas of sweet hops, cotton candy; refreshing and crisp; a little on the thin side, but has a nice texture to it; no carbonation with flavors of hops, caramel and sweet malts; not bitterness and a sweet finish; pretty nice

Pours thin and golden. Amber in the glass with a average white head. Nose of construction materials, maybe spackle. Malty taste which is quite good, with mininal hops, OK beer, but not good enough.
