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

Good balance between malts and hops. A bit crisp which cuts into the overall flavor of the beer. Not offending and will appeal to most as it is fairly light.

ALIBALI (539) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
Hohe Drinkability, sehr würzig, erdig und absolutly britisch. Der Trunk säuerlich, überwiegend klar ALEig, obwohl manchmal auch ein kleines bisschen ein untergäriges Trinkgefühl aufkommt.Der angenehm bitter Nachtrunk rundet den Eindruck, es hier mit einem soliden Bitter zu tun zu haben, ab. 355ml Flasche von FAMILA Kiel. 2,99 Euro.

Alla spina. Ale biondo miele che stupisce poco. Fresca, di intensità medio-bassa, amarognola, piacevole ma niente di più.

Pours a clear light copper with a medium head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of yeast and a bit of malt and grass. Not very strong though. This beer tastes like a wheat beer, which isn’t my favorite. I will say that this beer is pretty clean in the mouth. Overall, I’m not thrilled with this beer, but I think I just don’t like the style, so it isn’t necessarily a knock on this beer.

HuskerTan (1643) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Can. A- Subtle caramel, malty, slightly metallic. A- Dark copper color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Sweet caramel, malty, subtle oak, mild vanilla. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Seeing the name I thought this was going to be a Pale Ale. Turned out to be an ESB and a pretty decent one at that. Nothing really stood out about it but it was easy to drink and not skunky or boring.

355ml can. Pours a clear dark amber with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, bread and toasted oak. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, dried fruit, vanilla and toasted oak with a slightly bitter grass finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.
