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

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 20, 2008
THOUGHTS: Very British. The first bottle of this I tried I didnt like very much, but now I really like it and would have it on a fairly regular basis if it were more readily available around here. Very easy to drink and a great break from super hoppy or chocolate malt bomb beers. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium brownish orange with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma was moderate to heavy caramel malt, light herbal hops, a little cask wood, tea and maybe some tobacco. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, acidic and bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet, moderately bitter and a little sour with an average duration. There was caramel malt, tea and then mild herbal hops. There was also some oak. Nice balance. The light to medium body was sort of oily with tingly carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

On Tap at Anaheim Stadium. Pours amber brown with a fluffy tan head. Slight aroma of roasted nuts and caramel malt. Flavor is mostly bitter and sour with some roastiness. Overall not very enjoyable, never again.

Bottle; thought I had previously rated it, so I didnt note anything about the color. Aroma of toffee and flowers. Flavor was spot on for the style. Very recognizable as an English pale. Good toffee and caramel flavor with some woody vanilla. Good crispness and slight sweetness. Hops were mainly grassy and floral. REally good for the style.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2008
This was surprisingly good and surpsiginly English in overall character. Its copper with a medium, light tan head, steadily shrinking to a thin, permanent top with only weak hints of lace. The aroma is flowery and a bit earthy with prominent breadcrust, as well as hints of caramel and grapefruit. The taste is mild caramelly malt, bread, mild lightly grapefruity citrus, hints of pine, leaves, and earth, and a light fruitiness. Its a bit mild and some of the specific flavours are not my real preference, being a little more grapefruity than I ideally prefer. However, it has definite English qualities as well and is well balanced in flavours and in sweetness-bitterness, with both lasting. It also goes well with food and is easy to drink.

Poured a clear amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma was slightly hoppy with some interesting malt aromas. Taste was very sweet. The malts are the highlight in this one. Finish was nice and hoppy.

rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Poured from 12oz bottle an amber color with medium sized off-white head. Aroma is light with caramel and malt. Flavor is full with a small amount of roast grain, malt and caramel that has a mild sweetness and crisp but mild bittering finish. I found this beer exceptionally easy to drink and smooth. Good flavor and one Ill come back to regularly.

posikyle (165) - Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Not bad. Pours a deep amber with a sweet, slightly hoppy aroma. Taste is almost all hops, with caramel undertones and a big hop finish. Defnitiey worth a buy.

12 oz bottle Poured a clear orange color w/a slight off white head. Decent hop aroma. Some up front flavor of hops, than taken over by a moderate roasted malt flavor w/traces of caramel. Decent mouthfeel w/a bitter finish. Solid, easy drinking brew, quite enjoyable.
