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

R4N5H (219) - SINGAPORE - MAY 16, 2015
35.5cl bottle on 16/05/15 poured into a pint glass. Cloudy amber in colour with a large tan coloured head which quickly dissipates. Light to medium carbonation. Medium body. Aroma of biscuit malt and hops. Taste of malt, the sweetness of honey. Fruity, bittersweet with a long lingering taste on the palate. A good version of an ESB although a little too sweet for my taste.

Big, malty and sweet. Beautiful color. Taste is sweet, malty and you can definitely pull the barrel out of it. Drinks super easy. I’ve always seen this and have never tried it but it’s really good. If you like sweeter English style ales this one kicks ass.

rosenbergh (8285) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Draught at the Firestone Walker Barrelworks, Buellton, CA.
Clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Sweetness, biscuits, mild malt and wood in the aroma. Sweet malt, biscuits and mild hoppy bitterness in the flavour. A bit boring.

Cervesa lleugera, destaquen les maltes en tots els sentits, és agradable i fàcil de beure. Cerveza ligera, detacan las maltas en todos los sentidos, es agradable y fácil de beber.

Strange malts and wierd sweetness. Both malts and sweetness overpower what ever hops are in this. Not a fan at all.
