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

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - MAY 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2008 looks great in the glass. has a lot of fruity flavor, malts very upfront in this one. spicy hops but not a whole lot of them. has a grainy mouthfeel that kind of bugged me. havent had it bottled in a while though, so maybe i need to rerate it.

riversideAK (6215) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2007
Aroma is mostly sweet and slightly roasty maltiness. A little hops too. Dark copper color. I got alot of roasty caramel toffee malts. Some hoppy crispness. As well as some dried fruit. Relatively complex, yet nothing overwhelming. A medium body with a bit of carbonation. You cant really go wrong. It is nothing over the top special, but it is a reliably tasty offering.

bhensonb (14321) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 20, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Primary aroma is flowery hop, backed by some medium malt. Color is very copper, with a white head that isnt persistent. Starts with a bit of carbonation bite, medium mouthfeel. Seems to be floral hop with accompanying malt. More balanced than many. The finish is dry and bitter, but some malt aspect tags along. Really decent. Still good beer!

radagast83 (7510) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2007
Bottle. Nice malt aroma, and a small hop aroma. Pours with a lightish brown color. Flavor is a nice mix of malts and hops, with good balance. A refereshing beverage.

Aurelius (5129) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2007
Nice malty aroma. Tea brown, with a fluffy thin head. Great bottle feel, nice label.Lightly tart, moderately bittered, a bit buttery, sunflower seedy. Medium to medium-heavy body, sunflower seeds in the finish. Lagerish, in a lot of ways, but theres a hard-to-pin-down briny/fruitiness in there. A clean-drinking brew, to be sure. Faint vanilla in the very end. Very nice. Mellow Mushroom, Auburn.

amber/copper in color with a small, quickly diminishing head. weak aroma of hops, tea and caramel malts. flavor is much better with hops, toasted malt, and the tea. very smooth.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Pours a copper amber color w/ minimal froth and residual lacing. Actually, it looks like aged Bourbon. Not very aromatic at all, just pungent malt. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Texture is like cotton. I can taste the oak right upfront, then the malts and then the velvety hops. A mild hay flavor creeps into play. No off flavors to speak of. It is crisp and clean but you must like the oak to add refreshing. The finish is bittered nicely.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Hazey amber body with a tiny white head. The aroma is caramel, some dark fruits and light spicy, floral hops. The flavor is clean, some sweet caramel, but very light, and a touch of woody hops. Medium/light body with soft carbonation. Very refreshing and a very nice session.

Very good ale. Not to hoppy and not to malty...very good balance. Pours a nice copper color and has a hint of chocolate to it.
