COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
DPA has risen to become one of the most award-winning English-style pale ales in the world. Sporting a brilliant copper hue and an assertive floral hop aroma, DPA is known for its smooth, malty middle, which is expertly complemented with hearty and complex hop flavor. DPA's extraordinary hop finish is marked by crisp yet moderate hop bitterness.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2004
An amber beer with a small disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with some notes of alcohol. While the flavor is sweet malty with a hoppy end. But the body is thin.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours amber golden with a slight haze and a gigantic, rocky head that leaves big lumps in my glass as it dissipates ever so slowly. Distinct aroma of caramel and some aromatic hops. Medium body dominated by caramel malt, some fruit and a dry, aromatic hoppyness in the finish. Decent, but far from a great Pale Ale. Lots of flocculate in this bottle - takes a couple of days in the fridge to settle. Something wrong with this batch? Beer ain’t too old. 100306

Bottled. Dark copper coloured, small white head. Weak fruit and hops in aroma. Sweet fruity flavour with the precense of weak hops. King of mild flavoured, but still very pleasant and refreshing.

Light amber color; huge, frothy head. Flowery and fruity hoppy aroma, gentle (sweet grapes, peach). Dry and light body structure; some malt, but metallic touch; bold bitterness, but with metallic resins. I tried it some other times and I liked it more…

2005 October, 7-4-6-3-12=32
Cloudy amber color; huge rocky head. Nice hoppy aroma. Reasonable malty body, strong bitterness, a bit astringent and metallic at the end. Average. Unbalanced.
