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

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 (1860) - 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.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Bottle. Clear dark golden amber w/dissapearing white head. Aroma is sweet hoppy with honey. Taste is malty caramel. Very drinkable. I like the maltiness in a pale ale.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: APR 20, 2008 An amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with light caramelic notes. The flavor is sweet caramelic combined with quite a lot of alcohol - surprising for such a low ABV beer, the flavor is also slighlty dusty. Too simple, which makes it somewhat boring.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2008 Bottle. Orange colour with a small off-white head. Light sweet hoppy aroma and a sweet caramel hoppy taste. Medium body and a sweet finish. 5-3-6-3-13 Re-rate. Blind tasting. 7-4-6-3-13

Hansen (6878) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2005
Light brown colour. No head. Malty aroma and flavor, something like the standard Brooklyn.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Transluscent orane amber in color with a thin, tan head. Definite oaky, bourbon-like aroma with a nice English malt (bread and biscuits, toffee) and fruity yeast and sweet hops. Big toffee malt flavor, ale yeast fruitiness, a solid bitterness at midpalate, some boubon flavor, earthy hop flavor, and just a touch of chocolate. Malt and hop balance incredibly well into a long, persistent finish. One of the best efforts of an English bitter produced in the U.S. in my experience. The only drawback is the American oak, charred American oak at that (I hope I am not assuming too much here), that gives this beer a little too much boubon-like character.
