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.

12 oz can courtesy of the Three Cellars singles selection (Franklin, WI). Pours a well hazed orangish amber with decent whitish head that laces and sticks around to most extent. Aromas are a very nice florally hop presence. Grass, lemon, light grapefruit, and light pale malts make up the nose with decent power and a tasty appeal. Initial is light bodied, sessionable in body and taste, pale malts mix with a nice lemony and grapefruity hoppiness, balancing the sweetness and leaving a pleasant bitterness on the palate. Certainly not the strongest pale ale, but a good sessioner and great beer on the go with can appeal. Finish is bitter, lending some sharp hop and bitterness at times. Picks up a point for being able to pick out some resinous piney feel. Sessionable yes and a good APA, but not the best by some ways.

Can picked up at Market of Choice. Pours a clear amber with a huge white head that fades soon. Floral and pine aroma, kind of cloyingly sweet. Too much soap in the flavor spoils it for me. Will try again at some point since it’s so highly rated.

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.

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 Gilly’s, 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!

Can at Järnet, Stockholm. Pours hazy dark amber. Smells of oranges and hops. This should be the benchmark apa for every brewer!
