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.

Pours a clear golden amber with a minimal head... Medium hoppy nose, not overly aggresive in the way an IPA is... Mildly creamy upfront taste followed by a very hoppy finish... Excellent Pale Ale... Very easy drinking, im sure this beer would catch up on you in no time...

Can. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a nicely-sized off white head. Aromas are minimal, but have a nice mix of malt and citrus hops. Flavor is a nicely balanced combination of the same with a bit of a pine bite to the finish. Comes across as a fairly heavily hopped APA, maybe IPA would be a better category, but who am I to say. I could drink a lot of these.

I kinda dig this new good beer in a can trend. I would feel like I wasted my money, however, if i drank this out of a can, but I think for freshness you canít beat this container. I think a good beer needs to have your nose all in it. This one i poured and i have to say iím really impressed. More like a lot of the IPAís Iíve had. With a 6.5 ABV on a standard pale, Iím a little curious about how Iím going to get my hands on their IPA!! I bought their Irish style ale too. Bout to rate that one next. This one, though, is delicious. Clean sweet malt and good hops through the whole deal. Great clean stuff. Really good.

Crushed with Jakebra. Very nice, smooth pale. My 3rd Oskar Blues experience: all have been extremely positive. Smooth, fruity, dry, delicious pale ale.

12oz bottle from Rolliní Oats (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger white head that settles quickly with some glass lacing. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with notes of honey, grass, wheat, grain, citrus, grapefruit, fresh ripe fruit. Flavor is also sweet and hoppy with notes of floral hops, citrus, grapefruit, honey, caramel, some faint maltiness. Generally light to medium body with a floral and sweet finish.

On tap at The Yard House. Pours a clear golden amber with a rich creamy off white head. Lacing and head retention is excellent. Aroma is citrusy hops and sweet bready malt. Flavor is again mostly hops, but with a very nice caramel malt backbone. Well balanced with a bitter finish. Medium bodied and super smooth.
