COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. Canít be done. Weíve honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. Youíre 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

Pours red-brown, a typical amber ale. Hints of citrusy hops and brown-sugar malt on the aroma, straightfoward amber-ale taste, enough hops to keep it from being disappointing, enough malt to keep it from being too thin -- but not enough of either to make it more than yet another drinkable amber ale.

An english pale ale? Doesnít seem like it. Sweet, fruity aroma. Flavors of fruit and a little caramel. Weak, sweet, not much hops to balance it out. Not very good.

jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Dark amber body, small tan head fades quickly. Muted citrus, orange candy, resin. Light resiny citrus carries over to the flavour with mute malt as well. Average palate. Pretty mediocre but not off putting. 5/2/5/3/10

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle shared with HTH, Jerc, MDS, Harryís bottle. Orange, frothy bubbly white head. Mild malt, hop aroma - like an amber with some citrus. Decent soft malt taste, some orange citrus, so light malts, pretty damn mild though. Weak short finish. Average stuff, I havenít been terribly impressed with either beer Iíve had from the bottle from these guys so far.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 Bottle (650ml). Shared with jerc, mds and tupalev, my bottle. Clear deep amber with dimishing white head. Sweeet light aroma of sugary malt, slightly vegetal grain, grassy hops. Taste of sourish grain, cream, stale hops - sourish, weak mouthfeel - ehh. *** re-rated March 3 2009 - what the hell was I thinking? This is a fine beer - nice wood and light juicy malt.

fishean (12) - Palmdale, California, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Sampled many times from various Keg. Mostly in Solvang after 103 hard riding miles... and now at the local Red Robin in Palmdale. Dark amber with nice White head, smells a bit of carmel and flowers Flavor very smooth with a great pain killing effect after 16 oz. The body says, "whoa, thats was good, one more will do nicely"

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts and citrusy hops. Flavor was smooth, sweet up-front, caramel, with a slight hoppy bitter finish. Good body, good brew.

Golden color with a thin head. I didnít notice much in aroma due to a stuffy nose. Flavor is hoppy but balanced.

Draft in Camarillo CA. Brown pour with a decent head. Didnít last very long though. Aromas were a little macroish. Not a loth there. Flavors were better with a lot of caramelish malts and some spiciness that really set it apart from other common beers. Not too bad.
