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

Copper color with minimal, white head. Malty, herbal hops, sweet caramel, and slightly tart aroma. Interesting. Flavor has sweet malts, some fruits, and tea leaves. Not at all what I was expecting but enjoyable anyway. (Thanks for the bottle, Rei!)

I like the commercial description. It reminds me of sweet toasty cereal. Very unique and appealing beer. English and not hoppy at all.

TheRealBastard (145) - The-No, California, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Boring not very good, but just about all that fresno has to offer. Picked up a 12 pack hoping for something better but didnt get it. Pours amber with white head. Has hardly any flavor on the nose and going down. Not recommended to others. Another boring beer to add to the list.

APPEARANCE: Pours a clear amber color with a relatively small off white with average retention. There is a little bit of lacing. AROMA: Light aroma of biscuit like malts and caramel. TASTE: Lightly toasted malts with a light caramel sweetness that is balanced with a little woody bitterness that must come from the barrels. There is also a hint of smokiness. MOUTHFEEL Light to medium body with a relatively dry texture. Light fizzy carbonation. DRINKABILITY: Very drinkable but needs a little more flavor to make it interesting. The dry finish also means it is not thirst quenching. NOTES: BBCSD-0812

jjuf1853 (1301) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle pours a clear copper amber color with a foamy beige head. Excellent lacing along the glass for the duration of the beer. Aroma is a nice mixture of caramel malts and English style hops. Nice flavor and aftertaste.

Barreras (1685) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 13, 2009
On tap, a clear copper color with a white head. a very drinkable Ale, that finishes smooth. Strong bite of flavor in beginning but tapers off at the end of the swallow. Overall a good drinkable beer that I would order again.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 12, 2009
12oz. Thanks to explosivebeer. Pours a copper, semi-clear with a small but well retained white head. Aroma shows a nice balanced maltinesss, rich with some subtle piney hops. Reminds me a bit of Southern Star Pine Belt or a less hoppy Dales. Just a nice balanced aroma. Flavor is smooth, malty, easy drinking, mildly dry. A toasty, grainy finish. This is a fine beer, really, quite good for the style. Perhaps a little underrated.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2009
22oz Bomber Gravity Beer Market Olympia, WA
Aroma: Nice malt aroma with a lingering of oak and hops in the nose.
Appearance: Light Brown in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: Nice flavor this was smooth and silky like a ESB should with a nice oaky flavor that was light but present.
Palate: Nice Dry finish with a very good overall Mouthfeel.
Overall: A very nice beer. I would have liked more oak but this is an ESB so it should be subtle.
