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

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2017 Muy inglesa, con un dulce final que agrada, se sienten berries que al final se pierden por el alcohol

12oz can. Pours a clear amber with a three finger tan cap. On the nose mineral notes, and lots of caramel. Taste wise burnt sugar, raisin, and mineral notes that heads into caramel malts, hard water, light citrus, and oak in the finish. Kind of tastes like a light hybrid of a British London Pride and a Scotch ale. It's a tiny bit sweet for my tastes but it's a solid brew.

Nice deep amber colour with tight head. Fresh earthy nose and restrained grassy sweet malt flavours. Maybe some oak, definitely wood and grain. Pretty flat and feels a bit thin in keeping with the style, but a good ESB and very smooth. Plenty of subtlety here.

hirigalzkar (3274) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2017
Draught @ Spitfire. Piney and sweet with notes of toffee, marzipan and grass. A rather messy yet interesting ESB.

Draught at Spitfire. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet taste of knäckebröd, orange peel and caramel malt.

Bottle, from US. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

beer-yum (1890) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 4, 2017
Restrained aroma in an amber copper pour. Similarly laid back hop forward balance with a fruity malt body and moreish finish. Just like it says on the tin?

3.1
ALLOVATE (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2017
At just on cool and into a nonic. Bright, burnished amber body with very sparse, very intermittent carbonation. Head rises forth but fades to mess up the glass with suds. Nose has hints of tangelo, mandarin, rose petals and Anzac biscuits. Considerably light on the palate. Thinner than anticipated, especially for an ESB. Prominent, tangy orange flavour with a sharp Burton snatch on the swallow before it fades off woody and floral; very little bitterness to break it up. Dry overall with prickly carbonation upfront, softening to still as it moves south. Very clean, but lacking in unique character. I did like it though. Drinks with remarkable ease. (35,5cL, bottled 04/04/17, Dan Murphy’s, Canning)
