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

Draught. Poured red amber with thin head. Spicy aroma, with much floral. Malty flavour, with a bit of flatness also toast notes. Balanced finish.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Pours amber, very clear, with a smooth white head. Toasted malts up front, fruity and a touch spicy in the hops. I didn’t pick up much barrel character in this. Also, this felt a bit watery on the palate, very soft carbontation, maybe a bit more and some more barrel character would come out.

raphael (1193) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Caramel, pine & plywood. The head holds on a while over clear darkish armber. A little flat in the bottle, flavors of caramel, whole wheat bread, lemon, oak & a hop edge. citrusy finish

apshah99 (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Orange amber pour, light aroma of floral hops. Smooth, sweet taste, a touch of grapefruit with bright crisp finish. I can’t taste much of the barrel. Nice on the palate if a little thin.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Faint aromas of mixed fruits, malts and hops, orange, slightly cloudy with a mild head and carbonation, taste is like a mild ESB, with some mixed candied fruits, toffee and hops. Palate is light, palate is smooth, clean with a lean toward some lingering spice hoppiness. The first time that I had this I was blown away by its complexity, not anymore, its still a beer I like and an above average, every now and then quaffer.

Quite suprised that I haven’t reviewed this beer yet. I’ve enjoyed it several times in both bottle and on tap. Each time was a very enjoyable beer, but I think I prefer it out of the bottle a bit more.

The beer pours out a rich amber color with a thin one-finger thick head. An aroma of sweet, undefined malts with just a touch of earthy, floral hops. Flavors had a nice caramel-like sweetness combined with smooth finish and a nice bitter swallow. Always a nice beer to go to when the choices are slim.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 31, 2008
22 oz. bottle - pours orange-amber and clear; white head quickly fades; aromas of sweet hops, cotton candy; refreshing and crisp; a little on the thin side, but has a nice texture to it; no carbonation with flavors of hops, caramel and sweet malts; not bitterness and a sweet finish; pretty nice

brokephibroke (312) - Mead, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Pours thin and golden. Amber in the glass with a average white head. Nose of construction materials, maybe spackle. Malty taste which is quite good, with mininal hops, OK beer, but not good enough.

One of my groomsman bought a case of this beer in 1997 for my bachelor party in Los Angeles, leaving me with fond memories. Until recently, this beer was almost impossible to get on the east coast, but lately it seems to be getting a national distribution. Pours a light copper color with a modest white head, and smells of malt and caramel. I remember the taste being more evocative 10 years ago, but to be fair there is a lot more fuller-bodied craft beer available now. The finish is definitely crisp and clean, almost biting.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Poured clear brown/amber with a small head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and light fruit. Taste is malty, caramel, and some light hops. Finish was unremarkable, with some light malt and bitterness. Mouth was smooth and lightly carbonated.
