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

Bottle. Nice malt aroma, and a small hop aroma. Pours with a lightish brown color. Flavor is a nice mix of malts and hops, with good balance. A refereshing beverage.

Aurelius (4631) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2007
Nice malty aroma. Tea brown, with a fluffy thin head. Great bottle feel, nice label.Lightly tart, moderately bittered, a bit buttery, sunflower seedy. Medium to medium-heavy body, sunflower seeds in the finish. Lagerish, in a lot of ways, but there’s a hard-to-pin-down briny/fruitiness in there. A clean-drinking brew, to be sure. Faint vanilla in the very end. Very nice. Mellow Mushroom, Auburn.

amber/copper in color with a small, quickly diminishing head. weak aroma of hops, tea and caramel malts. flavor is much better with hops, toasted malt, and the tea. very smooth.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Pours a copper amber color w/ minimal froth and residual lacing. Actually, it looks like aged Bourbon. Not very aromatic at all, just pungent malt. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Texture is like cotton. I can taste the oak right upfront, then the malts and then the velvety hops. A mild hay flavor creeps into play. No off flavors to speak of. It is crisp and clean but you must like the oak to add refreshing. The finish is bittered nicely.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Hazey amber body with a tiny white head. The aroma is caramel, some dark fruits and light spicy, floral hops. The flavor is clean, some sweet caramel, but very light, and a touch of woody hops. Medium/light body with soft carbonation. Very refreshing and a very nice session.

brianjames1 (539) - Northridge, California, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Very good ale. Not to hoppy and not to malty...very good balance. Pours a nice copper color and has a hint of chocolate to it.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Nice Nor-cal microbrew. Aroma is very nice and hoppy. Appearance is clear and dark amber. But the best part of the beer is the flavor and the mouthfeel. It is very smooth and has a great intense flavor.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Bottle. Small white frothy head into amber colored body. Aroma was light: some roasted malts and also some light citric hops. Flavor was smooth: molasses at first taste with a hit of hops then subsided back into sweet molasses (in a good way). I am surprised and impressed with this EPA.
