A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. Can’t be done. We’ve honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. You’re 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

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Pours a very clear medium amber color with a nice head that lingers a bit. Aroma is mostly malt, probably crystal and caramel. Faint noble hops. Taste dominated by malt, hops barely come through. Finish is pretty smooth. I’m not a fan of British Pale but this is better than most. Not enough hops for my liking but there is a nice flavor here and it goes down smooth.

Amber with a decent white head. Malt and oak on the nose, not a lot else for me. Taste is malty, sweetish, a bit earthy, a bit of bitterness (but not much). A little disappointing given their blurb...

Malta, toffee, fruta madura y ese clásico lupulado floral de las cervezas inglesas. Espuma mínima. Muy buena y muy clásica. Canned 07/08/2016

Can bought at Piccadilly Tap. The noisy pour reveals a fawn-coloured head and a bright dark amber body. Minimal lacing. Dark spiced fruity nose. Mixed taste of wood, leafy hops and earthy malts. Bittersweet finish, dry. Soft on the swallow. Pleasing. (Hotel Room, Norwich 07.07.2017).

Clear amber, nice large head. Aroma is malty with clear oak. Taste is medium sweet, malty, some light herbal-floral notes, boring. Nice oak in the tannin finish, though.

A very fresh British Pale Ale. The Firestone Union oak barrels give this beer a very refined and taste that most will enjoy and appreciate. Nice mild blend of vanilla and toasted oak flavor touched with a hint of English noble hops.

Bottle. Color: Amber, off-white head. Taste: Starting more to the medium sweet side, with notes of caramel and bread. Wuickly changing more to the hopbitter side. Floral hops. Pretty long lasting bitter spicy finish with dry mouthfeel. Nice ESB. Above medium carbonation and body.

dambor (700) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2017
Pours almost ruby red with medium head. Aroma: a lot of toasty aroma, followed by caramel, dried fruit but also floral aroma. Taste: caramel and a touch of dried fruit nicely balanced by the hoppy bitterness. Vey nice drinkable stuff.

Light amber in color. Some subtle earthiness going on, but really not much else. Literally tasted like nothing. Disappointing.

Fisler (547) - Bamberg, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2017
Optisch schonmal ein Puma, rotbraun, stabiler Schaum, feine Perlenstränge. In der Nase schönes Malz. Im Trunk geht das dann auch so weiter, sehr malzig, cremig, im Abgang wollen die Bitternoten dann aber nach dem Anklopfen nicht hereinkommen. Schade, dabei hab ich extra aufgeräumt.

Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Can. Clear amber with an average off white head that leaves nice lacing as it shrinks. Aroma is caramel, bread, and floral hops. Taste is toffee, sticky citrus and floral hops, caramel and mild bitterness. Average thickness for the style and sticky on the finish.
