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

Nice Nor-cal microbrew. Aroma is very nice and hoppy. Appearance is clear and dark amber. But the best part of the beer is the flavor and the mouthfeel. It is very smooth and has a great intense flavor.

Bottle. Small white frothy head into amber colored body. Aroma was light: some roasted malts and also some light citric hops. Flavor was smooth: molasses at first taste with a hit of hops then subsided back into sweet molasses (in a good way). I am surprised and impressed with this EPA.

22 oz bomber with a a gold foil top. Iíve had this in my cellar and my fridge for a really long time, and I needed a brew tonight but not something super potent so this is what i chose. Pours dark bubbly orange brown with a stable white head. The aroma is lightly citrussy with a little bit of hops. The taste is hoppier with a crisp matly finish that lingers slightly in the mouth. This is a good drinkable brew.

FlacoAlto (4133) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Pours with a brilliantly clear, deep reddish amber colored body and is topped by a frothy, initially two-finger thick, tan colored head. The aroma is quite light, in fact at first it seems indistinct except for a soft berry-like fruitiness and a touch of grassy hop notes. Upon closer inspection the aroma opens up with a touch more fruitiness; notes of berries as well as sweet plums, golden raisins, and even a light aromatic apple note. In addition a soft citrus-like hop character, becomes more prominent after I first recognizable it. A very nicely balanced aroma, that is perhaps a touch too light even for a nice session brew.

Up front the taste is sharp with hop notes and dry malt character. It moves to a soft fruitiness that lingers on in the finish. The fruitiness is lead by that berry note, perhaps even a touch of strawberry. This beer has a fairly light body, though it does have some heft to it, especially towards the finish where a touch of malt sweetness and the fruit notes are found. The note that lingers the longest after swallowing a sip is that of biscuits or soda crackers. In fact this note helps to dry things out and prepare you for another sip. This beer is nicely hoppy with notes that are at times herbal, a touch citrus-like (leaning towards sweet citrus fruit notes), definitely with a nice bitterness, and maybe, just maybe with a touch of grass-like character. A touch of tannic astringency might be what is left of the barrel character, but this is soft and barely perceptible. I canít help thinking that this is at the right level though.

This beer is very soft overall, it is really quite tasty and well balanced, but I do wish there was more to it. I have a feeling that this would be a killer beer if served in an unfiltered straight from the hand pump form. I will have to seek out such a beast at some point as I am intrigued at what heights this beer might be able to achieve.

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.

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. Doesnít wow you wiht personality, but also doesnít offend.
