Tried this from the bottle and on tap at the brewery.

The filtered (regular) DBA has a crisper flavor than the unfiltered version. There’s a nice and toasty malt flavor to this honey-blonde looking beer, with some sweet nutty flavor and a touch of honey on the finish. Simply put, it’s a delight to drink.

(9/2011) One of my favorite beers from one of my favorite breweries. Of course, I could say that about any number of their beers.

Gave this one a vigorous pour into a tall Moonlight Ale pint glass. I immediately get an inch of foam. Big, billowy bubbles topping a wonderful caramel brown colored beverage.

Looks great, smells great too. I get a mellow caramel roast on the nose and full flavors from first taste. Warm, pleasant mouthfeel. Muted hints of oak/barrel-aging—but ever-so slightly, which should be expected since this beer isn’t aged, merely resting for a brief nap. Very mild, pleasant, some well-worn leather and light malts. Overall just a well-rounded, smooth, incredibly balanced beer. Not big, hoppy, or otherwise extreme—just excellent.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, sweet malt, slight yeast, hint of alcohol, candy sugar, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of an English Pale Ale, but is trending towards an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus hops, slight pine, hint of pale malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, blend, and feel.
