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

Probably the best beer I have tasted in my young life. I would drink this beer everyday.

One of my favorites. Begins smooth, nice and hoppy. a very mild caramel like sweetness mid-way thru, end to slightly bitter and then clean finish. Great cold weather beer.

Bottled sample via presario. Amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Nice malt forward aroma, some vanilla, very mild esters, and some wood. More hoppy flavors than expected, with some nice woody, grassy, and very mild citrus notes. Some light caramel flavors enter into the picture midway through, before some mellow woody bitterness finishes things off. Somehow, this is more of a British style pale ale for what it is not (a c-hop bomb), rather than what youd normally expect a British style pale ale should be (lots of fruity esters, etc.). Pretty good.

rayg1 (586) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2007
Pours out a deep amber color with a small tan head that quickly diminishes to nothing. Some light malty sweetness detected in the aroma followed by a quick but light bittering. Taste is again very light sweetness followed by a mild toasted flavor with light hops at the end. Pale Ales are not my favorite style, I prefer IPAs but I particularly dont care for English style Pale Ales. Nothing wrong with this beer really just sort of boring. Doesnt really do it for me.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Tasting at the brewery. Sadly this one did not live up to the billing in my book. Nose was weak, taste was weaker, finish was not memorable. It was okay, but too bad for a place that has great quailty.

bubbleflubber (2176) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Pours muddy amber, with a fully diminished head, minimal retention/spot lace. The nose is nicely done, of aerated caramel and toffee. Sweet toffee and caramel notes fall subtly behind an initial dryness. Not bad... I get a little copper and some spices leading into a clean finish. The finish is crisp, and very reminiscent of the beginning of the pull, in reverse order. The mouthfeel is a little off... not quite thin, and not quite hollow, but borders on either. Carbo levels are zesty, and make for a light embodiment. Again, not bad, but not a record breaker.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2007
Malty aroma with some woody notes. Pours a clear copper with thin head. Somewhat yeasty middle, with sweet malt, caramel. Mid range dry hoppy finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Draft. Poured a clear copper-red color. Head was thin and off white. Aroma and flavor were of spicy malt, toasted bread, and grassy hops. Pretty homogeneous. Not bad, but doesnt particularly stand out.

The type of Pale Ale that tastes very toasty for me. Brown,. Not head at all, at least from the tap. Very similar to others, like FlatTire and NewCastle.
