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.

A really nice brew. In a can, which was a surprise but a good brew. Very hoppy and a good amount of hops. Goes down smooth, has a crispness that is refreshing.

can courtesy MrBunn. Wonderful aromas of pin and floral hops. pours a coppery brown. Good notes of malt, hops and piney goodness. Lingering bitterness that lasts to the end. Coming out of a can, its pretty good.

Amazingly tasty Pale Ale from a can. If you like American Pale Ale beer give this a try as soon as possible. Pours amber with a good white head and plenty of white lacings. Hops rule this brew and a good amount of support from the malts. One of the best beers from a can ever! Mouthfeel is very good. Overall a fine Pale Ale. Super good canned Pale Ale. Great looking can art too.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2009
12oz can. Pours a slightly hazy, golden copper body with a finger-width, dense, white head that dissipates slowly and remains nicely laced. Aroma is loaded with sweet, citrus hops. Big, rich malt profile as well. Flavor is similar. Lots of floral citrus hops and caramels. Light toasted caramel comes through in the finish. Lingering taste of resiny, moderate pine and citrus. Very fresh tasting. Palate is medium bodied and extremely well balanced. Overall, this is what an APA should taste like. Fantastic. Loved drinking this while visiting Denver/Vail.

Location: Picked up a 12 oz. can at Gillyís, drank it 3/16/09

Aroma: Hops, pine, citrus
Appearance: Cloudy orange, thin head
Flavor: Hops and the citrus fronts, with a nice balance from the malt backing
Palate: Medium body, really nice finish/mouthfeel.
Overall Impression: Really nice American Pale, almost IPA like, with some strong hops and a nice mouthfeel. The kind of a beer you can truly enjoy. I like the idea of making high quality can beers, kudos!

finol (3065) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2009
Can at Jšrnet, Stockholm. Pours hazy dark amber. Smells of oranges and hops. This should be the benchmark apa for every brewer!

First sniff comes at you strong and appealing to a hop lover. Looks al ittle hazy after pouring out of can but the piney aroma comes out more in a glass. Very drinkable compared to the hop presence in the nose. Good rating beer!

12 oz can. Pours a hazy gold color with a 1/2" white head. Nose is all piney/citrus hops. Palate is medium bodied. Flavor is hop forward with a malt backbone. A nice combination is the 2 flavors, although the hops do dominate. This is Gordanís younger, weaker brother. Very nice!

Color is a golden amber. Iíve had this beer many times before and this is the first time I can say Iím picking up plenty of citrus notes (especially orange). Of course hops dominates this beer but not in a brutal sense. Leaves very little lace. Tasty beer, I bought a 12 pack for about $18 and change, so far itís serving admirably (although it could afford to be a pinch less expensive)
