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

Nephilium (1425) - Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2012
A faint aroma of oak, pours a clear amber with a full white head, and visible carbonation. Biscuity malts, with some oak bite to it. There’s very little hop presence, just a touch of bitterness in the finish. A decent ESB, just nothing really outstanding about it. The one unique element is the oak, which adds a little twist to the style.

Torrefacto (698) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2015
Ámbar con espuma blanca ligera. Aromas de maltas, ligero caramelo y tímido lúpulo floral. Cuerpo bajo, textura maltosa, sabor maltas, caramelo y final seco de amargor bajo.

rouhlas (402) - GREECE - JAN 15, 2015
330ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, courtesy of Thomas. Clear orange color with white head. Sweet malty aroma, fruity citrusy, light berries and strawberry too, dusty yeasty. Sweet and bitter taste like the aroma, malty with a pilsner like bitterness. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Miksu (4982) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2015
0.355 l bottle. Amber color. Aromas biscuity caramel, vanilla and some distant fruitiness. Taste of toasted biscuits, mellow caramel with drying woodyness in finish. Light bodied with carbonation on a low side, very drinkable. Slightly too much caramel for my taste, but this leaves a very positive feeling.

AndrewGunnison (8) - - JAN 13, 2015 does not count
great citrus with a slight caramel aroma blend, dry, malty core on the palate, as drinkable as it is tasty

Beachmaster (185) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours an orange amber, with a large white head that fades quickly. Decent lacing. Nose is faint aroma of malt and bread. Taste follows the nose, but is watery. Small hop bite on the finish. An average session beer.

suprchunk (2420) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Deep golden, almost amber pour. Might be the horrible lighting though. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Nice peppery malt aroma. Taste is my and hops. Dry finish. Good.

GlasgowTAD (165) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Pours orange with a large white head that recedes to a thin white foam. Aroma is bread and fresh cut grass. Taste is fresh, sweet caramel and some slightly off flavour (cant tell what it is). Quite watery. Not my favourite.

sawbuck (373) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Faint aroma of sweet breads and malt. Amber color with a tan head. Rich sweet malt up front. Very sweet...not balanced well with bitterness until the finish. Medium mouth feel. Finish has a balanced bitterness that is smooth. O.k.

Warped_Silver (99) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours light amber with white head that lingers. Virtually no aroma. If anything, slight oakiness. Taste is boring. Hardly any maltiness, no hoppiness just a little subtle Oak. Overall, simply caloric water ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dresden (998) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Amber clear with a big foamy off white head. Oak, vanilla aroma. Caramel, vanilla, slight spicy hop. Really excellent beer but tough to get a high rating, just well executed. My biggest issue with this beer is that the name reminds me of the database admins at work.
