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

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 14, 2009
On tap. Amber with a small head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and an almost earth hop bitterness. The flavor is a great balance of sweet and bitter, leaning on the sweet side. Medium body with an average carbonation. A pretty easy drinker.

jrob21 (3689) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours an amber color with almost no head. Candi sugar and caramel aroma. Flavor is caramel and nut up front and the finish is smooth with a bit of light grassy hops. Still a fan of american hop profiles but this one is a little more pronounced on the hop side than what I am used to from the english style. Creamy texture to this too makes this go down smooth.

Crit (3996) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Sparkling amber,nice beige head.Vague malt nose.Light easy drinking malt profile, nearly undetectable hops. A session beer, not much here

3.7
nearbeer (5419) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2009
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting inch of foam. Aroma of clean-spiced caramel apple. Flavors of caramel, cheerios, light melon and citrus, some dry wood and a hint of resin on the finish. Near medium body is smooth and sessionable, and just dry enough on the finish.

3.8
Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a deep copper to medium brown, with a nice but short just off-white head. Nice notes of malt come through in the aroma: toasted bread, raisons, rich toffee, and some slightly burnt caramel. The palate is malt-forward, showing a heavy hand with the use of English character malts, with Victory, Crystal 40-60, and a bit of special roast making appearances. Hops balance the sweetness, but give little in the way of character. The finish is neutral to slightly sweet. Overall, a beer that can compete with the best English Pales on the planet (i.e, Fuller’s ESB).

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pours a dark gold with slight orange hues. Nice malty caramel aroma. Very sweet, but overall a bit bland. Decent sessionable beer, though.

3.4
dchmela (3064) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Draft at Pour2424 in Vegas. Pours a light brown with a thin white head. nice hop aroma, spicy and floral. Light malt body with a good woody hop bitterness. Decent brew, but not great.

3.8
carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2009
moderate light brown color with a decent head. Aroma of light hops and a sweet malt caramel. Taste is smooth and lightly sweet. I really liked this. Well balanced.

3.2
SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - MAY 22, 2009
light copper, fast off white head. subtle malty aroma with earthy woddy notes. the flavour is smooth maltiness, bread maybe a hint of stonefruit and oak. kinda weak but very drinkable. much along the lines of imported english pales but have made it to NZ in MUCH better shape.
