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 canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís 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.

Can. Pours amber with voluminous white head. Aroma is fully of piney hops along with some caramel maltiness in the background. The lacing on this bad boy is something else, almost Houblon-like. Taste is lightly hoppy with more of the malty flavors coming out. Very well-balanced. I could drink this all day long and would willingly do so. Pretty full palate and finishes bitter.

The beer poursour a nice amber color with a thick had and some really nice streaks along the sides of the glass which is good for a pale ale. The aroma is nice and malty with hops and carmel. As the beer warms up and you take a sip it is nice and rich with carmel and toffee and the flavor coats the inside of your mouth much like candy would if you were sucking on it. the palte is extreamly good leavein those nice hoppy and smooth candy flavors lasting for a while.

Very subtle hops aroma up front. Thick murky amber color - looks heavy and thick and has stellar lacing. Sharp bitterness on the tongue but not overpowering. Has some slight sweetness to it that is very pleasant and well balanced with the hops. It gets much better as it warms - smoother and the flavor really stands out. I would love to have again. Strange sensation about this one though - almost seems as though there is something different in each sip - a different flavor of hops or perhaps malt that only shows up in some but not all of the drinks of it. Strange - almost like it isnít fully mixed or blended, or something like that. Either way - I really enjoyed this one - it was like a surprise in every sip that you took.

What a suprise. I saw this beer for the last year in the store and thought it was a generic P.B.R. Pours a brilliant amber with a big head. Standerd piney citrus aroma. Not sure why they decided to hide this great brew in a can. Now i have to try the stout!

pours gold with a nice thick head. Very hoppy in the nose with some citrus. Taste is the same, pretty mild but for the style it is exactly what I look for. Iíd love it if I could pick up a 6 of this any time I wanted. A great brew. Thanks goes to BlackForestCO again for this one.

12oz can, of course. I couldnít believe how good this beer looked when poured - a nice, golden brown with a big head. Aroma is of strong hops - based on smell alone it could easily be considered an IPA - and a strong one - although itís not classified as one. Rich, complex taste - definitely overwhelming citrus with a very bitter finish. Reminds me quite a bit of sea hag, with a thinner mouthfeel and a stronger bitter kick at the end. Good.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Very nice pale ale, big hop flavor and aroma, very piney. Being from a can and a pretty ugly one at that I had passed over this beer many times but I am glad I gave it a shot, A pleasant surprise.
