RATINGS: 2498   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.71   EST. CALORIES: 195   ABV: 6.5%
Brewed with hefty amounts of European malts and four kinds of American hops, it delivers a blast of hop aromas, a rich middle of malt and hops, and a thrilling finish. It weighs in at 6.5 % alcohol by volume.

Why squeeze such a big brew into a little can?

Because we think fun in the great outdoors calls for great beer. Our cans go where bottled beers can’t, where flavorless canned beers don’t belong. And no matter where you drink Dale’s Pale Ale, our can protect it from light and oxidation far better than bottles do.

Northern Brewer for bittering, Cascade and Columbus for flavor, and a big, post-boil addition of Centennial for aroma.

This is my refrigerator beer - nice aroma without being overpowering. Dale's is better than most craft IPAs and never disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a glowing, coppery-amber color with a great looking, big, froth head. Smells of lemon zest and cakey malts with a whiff of kiwi added, showcasing a pleasant, thoughtful put together hop profile. Drinks easy, with a higher carbonation to it, revealing a fitting balance between hops and malts. Tastes of syrup coated malts, melting together with fruity hops, revealing orange and crisp lemon zest. Lemon invites a prominent dryness to the otherwise very malty beer, giving it an inviting hop character, which then results into a long lasting, lemony dryness. During its finish, the beer reveals a mineralic quality, carried to the tongue by the lively carbonation, while malts and hops are still there, providing an easy agreeable bitterness. Well balanced and easy drinkable, while its hop profile is well integrated into the distinct malts and the higher, refreshing carbonation.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This beer is a clear amber color with a large white head. The taste is really good and is full of malt, hops and citrus. the aroma matches the flavor and it is a medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation. Overall, this is my second favorite beer from Oskar behind Ten Fiddy.

Tall can. Pours a clear copper with a tall almost beige head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of caramel, citrus and generally fruity hops. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately bitter, offers some nice fruity hops again with a good piny bite. Both body and carbonation are moderate. Overall a really good option for camping, especially in big cans like these!

Quite malt forward... caramel malts at the fore, with a hoppy bitter finish. Not bad, but it’s got a bit of a weird aftertaste to me. Not really my cup of tea.

Can. Lots of caramel in both aroma and flavour, American malty character. Other than that classic hoppiness, resiny zesty citrusy. Very good.

TATE (369) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Can. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Piney aroma. Big malt up front well balanced with the piney hops. This is a pretty strong pale ale but with the balance is pretty easy drinking. Solid overall.
