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

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.

MIBRomeo (2562) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2006
a golden orange pour w/ a nice head and some good lacing. Aroma is pretty small some oak notes and very light carmel, some light hop aromas as well. Palate is highly carbonated and other than that pretty avg. Flavor is an english style malt flavor with some grainy notes and some bland flavors. NOthing special.

Oak, hop, and caramel aromas are noted. The pour is golden with a off white head. Caramel flavor upfront gives way to a more hoppish and oakish flavor. The finish is smooth with some bitterness lingering on the palate.

Great beer. Dark Amber color with medium head. Oak Aromas. Good Palate with flavors ranging from nutty, oaty, and toasty. Their oak barrel processing gives the beer a unique taste.

Thanks to jimbowood as a bonus...this beer pours a uber clear read with not much head. Aroma is floral hops and citrus...a bit of malt too. Flavor at first isnít too bad...at first it tastes like a decent pale ale...but then it diminishes and tastes a bit metallic...very very unbalanced finish. Mouthfell pretty much watery.

From bottle. Reddish, amber pour with a medium, copper colored head. Some vanilla oaky aromas are blended nicely with some caramelized malts in the nose. A touch of grassy hops gives the smooth, delicate aroma of bit of extra character. The caramel flavors are much more apparant on the tongue, as is the realization that the balance between citrus hops and sugary malts is quite good. Final smack of oatgrain toast.

Oxidation and caramel on the nose, however the palate tastes fresh. The palate is mainly balanced with fruit and earth bringing up the rear. Quick sweet finish.

(12oz Bottles. Draft. 03/2006). Some vanilla in the aroma and a muted, soft maltiness. A bit oí grassy hop notes. Clear, copper-colored. Very inviting. Mellow caramel and citrus notes in the flavor. Very muted woodiness with some vanilla notes. Medium-bodied.
