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

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle. Bronze color with small, wispy off white head. Slightly malty and oaky aroma. The malt and hops seemed to be pretty balanced with a strong oak taste, and some nutty notes. The oak flavor seems to intensify as it warms, to the point that the last few drops can taste like licking an oak barrel. Went well with the pot roaste stew I ate it with, and would work well with similar dishes.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, amber golden with tiny, floating impurities and a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of overripe fruit and caramel. Medium-bodied with notes of caramel and overripe fruit. Dry, clean finish with only a discreet bitterness. Nice and quaffable. 190408

JorisPPattyn (9380) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2008
Draught Rim of whitish foam, pale amber-chestnut beer. Discreet hoppy nose, flowery, just a touch grapey, very complex, yet subtile. Flowery, discretely hopped IPA, ends on a slight carameled chestnut note. Light to medium bodied, sweetish aftertaste. Nice, subtle, clean. English in stead of overpowering.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - APR 20, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 On tap, attractive pour with deep amber color and decent off white head. Sweet malt nose with a bit of sugars. Mellow, easy drinking with a mellow malt forward flavor, ushered out by a subtle hoppiness that carries to the finish.

yespr (40140) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
Blind tasting at Papsoes place, another great session, thanks Henrik! Beer #6: Pours slight cloudy with a lacing white head. Wet cardboard and light spiced aroma. Flavour is light fruity with a mild oxidised note. Light bitterness and mild fruit note into the finish. A bit dull in the far finish. Light cornish touch.

Grovlam (4206) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
# 6 Bottle. [Papsoe’s great blind tasting, thanks Henrik!] Small bubbly white head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Mild cloudy amber color. Aroma of bread and sweet toasted malt, grain, fruit. Over the palate came light floral notes, light dusty grainy feel and again bread and toasted malt. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Light to moderated sweet flavor with light bitter notes. Light dry and sweet finish. 7-3-7-3-14 = 3.4 19-04-2008

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2008
Nothing noteworthy here. Burnt orange with white head an minimal lacing. Equal distribution of malt and hops...no "ah-ha" moments. Solid beer but one I probably wouldn’t try again.

illidurit (2284) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
Served on tap. Copper color, with a bright white head that clings to the glass. Aromas of toasted malt and some citrusy hops. Flavor is grounded by the sweet malt as a candied citrus hoppiness lingers atop it. Medium bodied, well-carbonated, easy to quaff.
