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

Goodgrief (1965) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 19, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 Apr. 2007 - Beer pours a caramel chestnut brown, little head or lacing. Nice aroma of caramel malts and a touch of citrus. The flavor however was strong sweet caramel, some biscuit with a mild hoppiness and touch of buttery diacetyl. Mouthfeel seemed flat when cold, but improved as it warmed. May 2012 - Not much else to add. Sweet and malty, with some diacetyl. Not great.

asedzie (784) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours deep copper with medium off-white head, nice lacing. Nose is mellow fruitiness, raspberries, nectarines and aromatic hops. Flavor is fully, creamy toffee-like malt, very light toasted flavor, balanced with mild piney, herbal hop flavors. Great lingering bitterness. Excellent session ale.

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2008
A deep amber pour with lite gooey lace. Lightly roasted malt and light hop aroma. Upper level of hops on the finish. Decent malt, semi sweet a hint of fruit almost makes me think of orange. Carbonation is good but body is a tad thin. A good beer really refreshing. Glad I drank the whole 22oz myself:)

Ver clear malty rich aroma, flavor initially bitter but niot too bad but almost sweet on the finish. could drink a few but gets overpowering for a pale.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy, but mostly transparent copper amber with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of doughy semi-sweet English caramel malt with a hint of grassy hops. Body starts fairly full with some nice malty sweetness and a decent balance of slightly earthy bittering hops before a duller semi-sweet finish. A decent English pale ale.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Beautiful clear amber with a frothy head. Malty aroma, some caramel sweetness, a bit of bread. The flavor has almost no bitterness, all malt sweetness surrounded by a nice full body and a clean finish.

jake65 (3244) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Draft @ The Beer Hunter: Pours a hazy copper with a large beige head. Aroma is malty with a little citrus hops. Flavor has a bit of rye to go with the malts and light hop presence. Easy drinker.

highibus (774) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Slightly toasted malt aromoa. Pours an amber color with slight head which goes away right away. Flavor is slightly sweet with a bit of saltiness and acidity. Body was lighter than I expected.

mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Gratis bottle from Rick. Medium amber pour into a pint with a light tan head. Head dissipates to a ring around the glass. Probably the clearest beer I have seen in a while. Nice bready aroma. Small sweet initial taste with light bittering hops. Tart bitterness comes to mind. Much less hoppy than an American pale ale. A bit of smokiness in the aftertaste. Easy to drink EPA. Not a huge fan of the style, but nice to drink.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Thanks to Eric for the taste of this and the 22oz. bottle--Poured a rich mahogany-amber body with a fluffy white head and thick lacing. Toasty, malt-laden, but very well balanced and not too sweet. Nice English yeast balance with a creamy, slightly fruity finish. Very mild but very enjoyable.
