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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 4, 2008
Pours with a slightly cloudy amber-orange body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly bitter with an underlying sweetness, a touch of hops and a little mustiness. Medium bodied and smooth.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2008
Can. Pours a deep coppery brown with good sized white head. Aroma is big time floral hops. Taste is smooth and bitter with long flavorful hop finish. I think the ratings here (including mine) are influenced by the novelty of having a good beer in a can.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Copper color with thick foamy head, lacing, and lots of bubbles. Fruity and earthy hop aromas. Nice, dry, robust malt, quaffable, and balanced. Good stuff. Draft at zekes even better. Full bodied and balanced. One of those beers that really has the potential to hit the spot.

mcferc4 (59) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2008
A go-to brew of mine for a while now. Nice, fluffy head. Cloudy amber color. Spicy, floral hop aroma. Taste is solid: perfectly bitter. Smooth, medium body. A great beer in a can? Yes please.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 APA from a can?! well i tasted it on draft at barleys in greenville and it was quite good. color was light amber with no lacing. aroma is citrusy with orange and grapefruit, hints of pine with some floral notes as well. flavor was nicely balanced with hoppy bitterness taking the lead and malty sweetness in the finish. mouthfeel is medium bodied and the beer lingers with sweetness. overall, quite good if you can get over drinking it from a can.

wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2008
thanks josh. clear amber with a good white head that settles into a thin film. aroma caramel grassy hops with a touch of citrus. bittersweet piney caramel flavor with a lasting bitter caramel grapefruit finish. finish a bit overly bitter. medium body moderate carbonation. decent pale i would drink it again but i dont know if it lives up to the hype.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2008
can. white average fizzy head into cloudy orange body. good lacing present. aromas of light caramel and light to moderate floral hops. flavor is bitter-sweet throughout. I am not sure I would actually call this an APA it has way more flavor that I am used to from this style. I would love to have a cold six-pack of this on a camping trip.

robbmotiwalla (60) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2008
pours a hazy copper color and the head has a pretty decent lacing. smell almost reminds me of a nut brown ale. the hops are prominent but not overpowering, leaving a nice hoppy aftertaste. a very well balanced APA

The aroma and appearance are clean but not distinctive. However the flavor shows off the brewer’s considerable skill. The multiple hops are at once earthy, astringent, and floral. The pale malts are full-bodied with sweet, peachy undertones, and provide a viscous texture. A slightly sweet finish with lingering hops on the front of the tongue.
