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

On tap at Barneys Beanery. Pours a translucent golden amber with a smaller off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of citrus, lightly spicy hop notes, caramel, nuts and iced tea. Flavor of tea, caramel, noble hops, light citrus and light hop bitterness.

strong aroma of dense malt that belies its low ABV. certainly biscuit style notes come to mind quick, but the appearance is a bit weak: orangish hue is very translucent and the mouthfeel is very wet and sloppy. palate is gone at the speed of light, but not in a crisp, dry manner...moreso along the lines of dilution.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2009
On tap at the Paso Robles Inn. poured a nice clear red color with a thin white head. Good malty aroma with a hint of hops. Flavor was very malty, a bit nutty, some biscuit dough. Very smooth beer but maybe a bit watery. Good drinker though.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Bottle. Musty fruity nose with soft caramel hues. Gradient copper body with a sticky, lacing, immovable tanned head. Taste is basic caramel and an absolutely lovely hop presence: caressing flowers; light citrus and pine; musty, sweaty resin-equivalent with faint spice, though not a large dose; a little orange cleanser to keep you awake. Lightish body with a smooth body, some earth, and a faint touch of corn. Low bitterness, dry finish. A refreshing, mild session, a joy!

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 5, 2009
One of my go-to beers when I’m at the grocery store and the selection blows. A classic session beer, DBA is clean, refreshing and easy to drink. $6.99 a six pack. Can’t go wrong there.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - JAN 5, 2009
From a 22 oz bottle purchased locally. Aroma is malty with just a slight hint of wood. Color is a clear amber, very deep orange with a half inch beige head. I get malt then a little oak, followed by earthy hops and then a little chocolate and a touch of roast in the back. A little lingering malt in the finish with out being sweet. There is so much going on in this beer. I really enjoy it.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Tap at the Snake Pit in Hollywood. Usually what I get in that place when Im not feeling absinthe. Strikes me as a bitter, actually. Nice even flavor that is bread crusty enough to not be a US Pale. Sweet only to taste finished. Refreshing when cold.

mpersinger (365) - , California, USA - DEC 14, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2008 12 oz bottle pours deep amber color, fantastic clarity, and topped with small beige head that fades quickly. Malt aroma is bready. Complex sweet malt flavor leads with mild fruity hop (Columbus?) bitter to balance in finish. Latent finish is sweet like grade b maple syrup.

drfabulous (7514) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Solid pale ale. Light citrus. Mellow aroma. Lacks intense hops, but I guess that is the point. Overall, ok. My substitution for not being able to ever get the anniversary beer.
