COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. Cant be done. Weve honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. Youre 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

Pilsnertest (166) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2016
Sample from The 5th Element presentation with Jeffers Richardson @ Akkurat, Sep 27. Aroma of burnt sugar and vanilla. Light carbonated body with a slightly heavier, dry ending. Light oiliness. Taste of toasted bread, grapefruit in syrup, vanilla and caramel. Would love to see this one as a cask ale. It would improve. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hohops (874) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Appearance is amber and quite clear, plenty of fizz, a big fluffy beige head which lasts. Leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma- caramel malt, brown bread, raisin, toasted malt. Taste- nutty, creamy malt, cherry cake, almond, toast, hint of sweetness, smooth mouthfeel, fairly long finish with bitter malts. Tasty ale.

Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2016
American take on a traditional English ale style, with medium thick, egg-white, lightly lacing, moussy, irregular head eventually reduced to a wafer thin rim and nothing else, and clear, beautifully deep warm amber robe. Pleasant aroma of freshly toasted bread, barbecued chicken, smoked paprika, tomato concentrate, green peppercorns, dried red berries, vague vanilla, toasted peanuts, caramelized sugar, mustard seed, radish. Clean, rounded fruity onset, redcurrant, apple and dried orange peel, softish carbonation, smooth and lightly oily, very supple body; notably nutty malt middle with a bitterish toasted edge, reinforced by mild wood tannins, drying the back along with floral, peppery and leafy Old World hop bitterness, bit tonic water-like in the very end, perfectly balancing out the restrained dried fruit and nutty sweetishness. Very elegant, balanced, tasty beer, indeed resembling a bottled English bitter of the higher ESB class, but adding a toasted oak dryness which blends in very well. Recommended, like all of Firestone Walkers beers.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Translucent mahogany hue with a transiently present white head. Prominently robust aroma with notes of caramel, toffee, malt, dried fruit, and citrus. Mid bodied with an eminently silky texture. Absolutely delectable. Dried fruit, roast, mild chocolate, vanilla and caramel are all present throughout with a slightly dry and sweet finish. Pleasant indeed.

malvrich (275) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2016
7 week old can from Mixed 12 into a tulip. A: Deep crystal clear copper tea color with 1" of tight beige head, quickly falling to a film. Patchy sheets of lace. S: Malty scent of fallen leaves and earth. T: Much like the smell, earthy, leafy hop taste. Lightly sweet maltiness. A hint of orange is most welcome cutting and lingering through the toffee and tea. M: Light body and stiff carbonation despite a bit of sweetness. Finish is a little sticky though. O: Cant find much fault although nothing really stands out. A nice, light easy drinking autumn beer imo.

ALIBALI (1109) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
Hohe Drinkability, sehr wrzig, erdig und absolutly britisch. Der Trunk suerlich, berwiegend klar ALEig, obwohl manchmal auch ein kleines bisschen ein untergriges Trinkgefhl 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.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Alla spina. Ale biondo miele che stupisce poco. Fresca, di intensit medio-bassa, amarognola, piacevole ma niente di pi.
