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

Golden color with a thin head. I didn’t notice much in aroma due to a stuffy nose. Flavor is hoppy but balanced.

Draft in Camarillo CA. Brown pour with a decent head. Didn’t last very long though. Aromas were a little macroish. Not a loth there. Flavors were better with a lot of caramelish malts and some spiciness that really set it apart from other common beers. Not too bad.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Poured a dark amber-orange with a decent head that quickly shrunk to a thin head that lasted the entire drink. Aroma was hoppy with some caramel coming through. The flavor was caramel malt based with some pine and light floral hops coming through. Very little citrus was detectable in the aroma and flavor. A smooth drink with a little bit of body for the summer or easy drinking moments. Thanks to bfeld for grabbing this one for me.

12-oz. Pours perfect ruby/brown amber with a diminishing, spare white head. Ghostly little suggestion of malt sugar on the nose, not much else. Medium body, medium carb. Sweet on the attack. Barely bitter (but sticky) finish. Disappointingly lacking in complexity.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Deep copper pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some fruit, corn flakes, hops. The flavor is caramel malty up front, with some bready fruits and hops emerging at mid-palate. Also some tannins appear late.

loseratheart (110) - USA - MAY 28, 2006
A bit overrated if you ask me. Flavor really was a let down. Malts were there along with hops, carbonated palate which really dragged the rating down. No aroma to speak of, no body to speak of, quite ordinary.

anders37 (17658) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2006
Bottle. Amber colour with a small slightly off-white head. Malty aroma with some roasted hints and some hoppiness. Malty flavor with some fruitiness. Also some roasted hints. Has a malty fruity aftertaste with some bitterness.

Had this one on draft in California. Very good taste and a smooth finish. Really enjoyed it. Wish it could be found in my area.

This had a non-existant head.Aroma was whimpy.Color was anice red-brown.The taste was a mellow one with a bit of body.Much better than the average beer.Would buy again if in a bar.I would pick others before this on a liquor store shelf.
