COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

bigbish (715) - California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Poured out of the bottle. Thin head, not a lot of carbonation. Flavor is malty with a slight toasted note, touch of bitterness. It’s ok, not that great IMO.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2017 Muy inglesa, con un dulce final que agrada, se sienten berries que al final se pierden por el alcohol

Frothmeister (827) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2017
12oz can. Pours a clear amber with a three finger tan cap. On the nose mineral notes, and lots of caramel. Taste wise burnt sugar, raisin, and mineral notes that heads into caramel malts, hard water, light citrus, and oak in the finish. Kind of tastes like a light hybrid of a British London Pride and a Scotch ale. It's a tiny bit sweet for my tastes but it's a solid brew.

danjs5 (270) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2017
Nice deep amber colour with tight head. Fresh earthy nose and restrained grassy sweet malt flavours. Maybe some oak, definitely wood and grain. Pretty flat and feels a bit thin in keeping with the style, but a good ESB and very smooth. Plenty of subtlety here.

3.3
hirigalzkar (3240) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2017
Draught @ Spitfire. Piney and sweet with notes of toffee, marzipan and grass. A rather messy yet interesting ESB.

3.6
finol (3465) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2017
Draught at Spitfire. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet taste of knäckebröd, orange peel and caramel malt.
