COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

citric hops on nose & palate, at mid palate it starts to break down a bit but rebounds with a nice clean & dry finish. by far the best bitter beer i had in a can. if you do a 1/2 & 1/2 with old chub you have the dales chubby old something

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Pours amber with a thin, white head. Faint malt aromas quickly usurped by the hop bouquet. The hops are fragrant, but frankly I was expecting a bit more. The taste definitely does not disappoint; smooth malty sweetness perfectly balanced by the bittering hops. Hop flavor is evident as well. Medium body with a very smooth mouthfeel. Finishes clean.

This is the first beer from a can I have had in quite a while. Quite aggressively hopped for a Pale Ale. Beautiful colour and a touch viscous. I think an IPA is a better definition, but...maybe it is the can preserving those flavours better.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Poured from the can a dark amber with a beige head. Aroma is full of citrus hops and caramel. Flavor is a grapefruit bitterness with a touch of lemon peel and some sweet malts make their way through.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Orange-ish amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, mild floral hops and caramel. Taste is more of the same wrapped up in a somewhat sticky body that finishes mildly bitter with a little pine mixed in.
