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

Another one of the beers from FWB and a good one at that. Very simple but yet good beer. Has a smoothness to it and yet more flavor than the Lager. The look and smeel were only average but the taste made up for it. Slightly less then the IPA IMO but I would down a sixer of these rather easily.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2007
From 12 oz. A clear copper ale with a lacy light head that disipates almost as fast as it forms. Floral aroma and well balanced hops and malt. Doesn’t wow you wiht personality, but also doesn’t offend.

Bready and mild hop aroma; lightly floral and spicy; uninteresting malt base; creamy body; nothing special.

22oz bottle; very pleasing to hold and look at. Pours rich golden dark, but with little head. Aroma of fruit and alcohol. Flavor not unlike a cheap general ale, but more concentrated and less carbonated. Goes down with a little bite; just a hint of alcohol, but with a smooth finish. Flavor can be described as rich, but not very complex. Gets more and more enjoyable as you drink it. I love this beer.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2006
12 oz Bottle. Sweet with a slight roasted aroma. Amber body with decent head. Flavor was medium sweet fruit at first and beer got richer as you get to the finish. Little complex and my sniffer is little off these days.

Bottle poured amber with a decent head and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts and fruit with a sweet hops and citrus flavor. Easy drinking beer .

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 6, 2006
ahh barrel aged brew.. tasty. aroma of the malt and a hint of hops. very smooth flavor but also well balanced and not overly assertive. this would be drinkable in quantity, but to do so would be dangerous methinks ;) definitely worth trying this if you can find it.

SpringsLicker (3253) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Starts with a large, frothy, long lasting light brown head that forms over a dark amber body. Bready malt aroma accompanied by light flowery hops. The flavor starts sweet with some acidic bitterness in the finish. Light, quaffable, but not overly complex. On the thin side.

A pleasing and well balanced english pale ale. Nothing to get excited about, just a well made beer.
