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

Pretty good brewski. Sipped on dis on right near the beach. Santa Brah Brah. A rich brew but kinda plain like Jane. Dont see the oak involved in dis one. Smooth and pretty good, reminds me somewhat of sierra nevada but smoother w/ less hops. Drank str8 from da bottle. Enjoyable and medium. Very medium.

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear dark amber with a small amber head. Aromas of oak, bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of oak, bread and a bit of nuttieness with a dry finish.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Body was surprisingly light; I guess I was expecting a "big" barrel beer. It did have big caramel malts, though. Light and flowery bitterness seemed to complement nicely. No real complaints; nice flavors; OK aromas.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2005
Pint poured at the Big Skye Cafe in San Luis Obispo (California), an amber/brown with a full head. A pleasant floral aroma. A fruity taste with a hint of berries. Great mouthfeel with a good bitterness in the aftertaste.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2005
On tap. Tasted during trip to California. Amber clear colour with a nice smooth head. Very sweet little aroma of malt. Some woody flavour very smooth somewhat dull. But worth a try.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Bright copper color with a taller light tan head. Sweeter aromas of sugar cookies, orange blossom honey and just hints of pale malt. I find it to be slightly thin in feel (lightly watery mixed with higher carbonation). An english flare to this one that I do enjoy. Mild lightly earthy malt mix with floral hops. A nice balanced brew. Wow, a couple ambers in a row that I have liked. I’m slightly worried that I may be losing it.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2005
The aroma was malty sweet w/ oranges, slight coriander and a slight dark fruit/spice note. The flavor had oak, malts, a slight citrus and a little roast astringency. The beer poured a brownish orange color w/ reddish hues; thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was light to medium body, creamy, and bold through the middle, but very light on the tip of the tongue.

JFGrind (1844) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2005
My expectations of Double Barrel were too high on this beer. Malty English bitter with caramel and butterscotch flavors. Hops and oak barrel flavor are fleeting.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Tap at Falling Rock. Pours a lush gold/amber with a full head. Aroma is like a nice English bitter. Flavor is a nice balance of bitter malt and floral hops. Good beer.
