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

Ungstrup (29223) - 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.

omhper (19321) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Bottled. Clear dark amber, rich head. Big toffee aroma. Sweet, soft and rounded with oak and caramel dominating. More focused on malt flavours than hops, which is scarce among American microbrewers. Very pleasant!

Light haze on this amber beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Light palate, mild minerally crispness. Lactose malt, lesser caramel. Whisper of dried fruits. Minerally crisp finish, semi dry. Disappointingly dull.
