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

Alphadelic (2220) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2008
Really lovely colour here. A deep red/amber with a thick permanent beige head. Smells like brittle toffee. Very sweet in the mouth, a little stale, flat empty finish.

12 ounce bottle from Corks & Kegs in Richmond, VA. Poursa brownish red color with a thin head, low head retention and average lacing. Big malty aroma with caramel and light hop notes. Very sweet malty taste with a tiny note of vegetal hops. Thin bodied.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
A terrifically malty, lightly hopped pale that’s a great pizza accompaniment. A solid sessioner that pours a light amber color with lots of bubbles for an ale. Pleasantly sweet aroma of honey and grain.

cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2008
I just don’t get the impression that this beer tried all that hard. There’s bitterness to it but it just falls so flat. Watery palate, a soft-metallic bitterness mixed with blandness, just nothing much doing here.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Clear copper with a fleeting tan head. Mild spicy caramel aroma. Medium body and smooth. Decent flavor is semi-sweet spicy caramel same as aroma. Just ok.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2008
22 oz bottle via Liquid SOl. Pours a clear amber with alarge beige head. The nose is subtle floral hops and some citrus. Taste is lemon, orange, berries, and a mildly hoppy finish. Light body..a bit watery. Medium carbonation.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2008
bottle - this one pours clear amber with a one finger white head. It has a very mild malt aroma and tastes mainly of caramel malt. It’s kind of watery and overall a very mediocre brew. Old bottle?

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Clear amber color with an off-white head that recedes and leaves a bit of lacing. Smell of biscuits, hops (peach and some citrus aromas), and some oak (seemingly). Light orange and peach on the tongue, oak, caramel, and a biscuity and somewhat piney finish. Light body, less than medium carbonation. Pretty drinkable, but I don’t know that this would be a regular of mine. Thanks to mashmaster for the bottle.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 6, 2008
Tasted 06/10/2008. 12oz bottle courtesy of TheGrandmaster via one of his travelling workmates. Pours a luscious rose gold with a tight creamy off-white head. Nose reveals stonefruit (peach esp.) with some floral notes, spicy hops, a little steely character, caramel and stewed fruit (a little tired?). A late note of subtle citrus comes through. Sweet stewed malt in the mouth definitely gets me looking at the best before date - 07/2008 - but there is a nice juicy fruit hop flavour all the way through and a sprinkling of spicy hop. Mild-merdium bitterness. Full weighty mouthfeel for 5%, soft carbonation. Still very balanced. I suspect this is a really great beer that is just too old (and the storage didn’t it let it get away with it).

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Had on draft, and have had it numerous times in bottle. A nice amber color, not much head. Has a nice subtle hop flavor with a bit of a dry malt finish. Great to session and cook with.
