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

BLADT (197) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 7, 2014
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Poured dark brown from bottle. Metallic nose, with apricots, faint allspice and some oak. Taste is pleasant malts, nothing too forward, tootsie roll in the background, some unnecessary spice, and just a whiff of basic English hops. Overall, solid for style, but a dash of spice too far.

Huhzubendah (2258) - Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2014
On draft at B&B Burger & Beer in Las Vegas. Amber copper body with a small off-white head. Malty aroma with sweet breads and a touch of fruit. More malt than hop character. A bit too sweet for my liking. A tad syrupy. Fairly light in body with light bitterness in the finish. Mediocre.

Love the Double Barrel Ale. Pours a clear amber with a nice off-white head. Nice earthy bitter flavor with a clean finish.

Another great one from firestone. Milder than their usual hoppy offerings, but incredibly well balanced. Tried at the Yardhouse in LV in 2014.

Marheb (1743) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Après l’avoir versée, je laisse les éléments se placer parce qu’elle me semblait un brin métallique. Le nez est celui d’un caramel sec et des houblons verts et doucement fruités. L’effervescence est parfaite pour donner un peu plus que corps qu’en réalité. Les notes de céréales sont profondes et un léger tanin s’y dépose. Buvabilité modèle.

Copper color with a nice off white head. Aroma is citrus, hops, caramel, wood, pine. Taste is citrus, hops, slight caramel and a slight bitterness at the end. A really good beer. A favorite one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scarletfire65 (865) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Malty aroma. Simple flavor profile with pale malts, light wood, and a nice bitter finish. Crisp and sessionable. Well done.
