It’s been a long time since I have posted anything but I have found time to continue on my blog. The beer that I will be reviewing today is The DBA by Firestone Walker Brewing Company. This beer is considered to be a Bristish Pale Ale and that is fermented in oak barrels.

Since this beer is fermented in those oak barrels you will get a hint of oak in the aroma and the flavor of this beer. When drinking this beer you will get a variety of other flavor as well . Those other flavors consist of caramel and toffee. Depending on your taste you may taste a hint of chocolate but it will be minimum. There is a bit of bitterness from the hops that are in this beer as well but the bitterness is also very minimal.

So what is in this beer? This beer consist of a variety of malts and hops. The malts that are in this beer the base malt that is the two row, caramel malt, chocolate malt, Munich and Maris otter pale malts. These are what give the beer the caramel and toffee flavors. The hops that are in this beer are as follows; Magnum, Styrian Golding and East Kent Golding.

I’m not the only one that thinks this beer is a great beer. Ever since this beer has been brewed it has been winning gold and silver medals. So if you love great beer as I do, I encourage you to try this one
