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.

355 ml can. Pours a slightly cloudy rather pale amber with a nice off-white head. Hoppy floral nose. Medium body. Initial semi-sweet malt base quickly followed by an ample hop bitterness. Quick dry finish.

Nice dark honey color with a puffy white head that recedes slowly and leaves nice lacing. Pure hop nose, grainy, earthy, weedy floral aroma. More of the same in the taste. I wish the malt backbone of this didn’t seem so watery up front, but the finish is nice and bitter. Very good.

Hoppy and Delish! Beer fan Dan stole that from me! I too sampled this at the Florida Beer Fest in St. Pete. I’m a big fan of the Old Chub (thanks Beer Fan Dan) and was very happy to have tried this one too.

Hoppy and delish! A superior American style pale ale. Sampled at the St. Pete Florida Craft Beer Fest. Very hoppy and crisp but not too strong. Oskar Blues continues to brew great beers!

Can. Pours an amber/brown, clear, with a small head. Aroma is surprisingly fruity. I was reminded of strawberry, raspberry, and banana Starburst candies. Flavor of the same fruits with a bitter finish. Incredibly delicious and as I said before, surprisingly fruity! Awesome APA and so drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Canned. Poured into pint glass, mild aromas of hops, clear and orange in color. Good straight up pale ale, some malty flavors. I enjoy that some good beers are now available from a can. 1/10/12: upped from 3.6 to 4.0. This has become like a quintessential Pale Ale. I have blown many of my friends minds by pouring this into a glass to erode their canned conception. It is one of the bigger Pale Ales within my normal reach. Great beer.

Pours copper with off white head. Nice citrus hops aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Easy drinking APA with nice balance of malt and hops. Good beer.

Dale’s Pale Ale has an air of backwoods drinkin’, but it ain’t no can of Bud or bottle of moonshine. This is a top shelf pale ale, and if it weren’t for the price tag, I’d be fooled. A deep orange and amber color, a thin fuzzy head and it has all the looks of a pale ale. What I don’t find is a grapefruity hop bomb. The aroma stresses the scent of grains, deep and pungent, with wheat favoritism and the classic smell of baguettes, oats and the general impression of a bread basket. Yes, the taste is bitter, but 1) the bitterness dissipates quickly after the first sip and 2) It’s not mouth puckering grapefruit. I LOATH that. Smooth, filling, roasted and bready flavors, with a subdued hoppy after-twang, this is a fantastic and very portable can of beer. Easy drinking.
