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.

12 oz can courtesy of ... oh .... ME!.... brought to our mini tasting with Padrefan98 and stefanje. Aromas were mild hoppy with touches of vanilla and lemon. Flavors were decent hoppy grapefruit without being super extreme. This was a nice lead in to a night of IPA’s and Imperial IPA’s.

smells very malty and like brown sugar. I don’t really smell the hops like everyone is saying. huge off white light brown head. tons of carbonation. orange copper color. tastes very hoppy even though it doesn’t smell like it at all. tastes like malty tangerines. great lacing. too hoppy and tangy for me. when I get a good mix of the creamy head and the beer it’s good otherwise it’s not my thing. much better though than the other beer I had by this Co. very good if you like a hoppy palate. they want you to take this brew in the great outdoors....I’m afraid I would only be able to drink one of these around a camp fire. too much going on to be a camp fire beer. it’s not swill but I don’t think it’s awesome either.

Canette 12oz, courtoisie de Blankboy. De couleur orange ambré et légèrement voilée. Nez de houblon citrique (pamplemousse), résineux et aux notes herbeuses, fruité (agrumes sucrées et abricots) et malté de caramel doux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement cérmeuse, légèrement aqueuse et résineuse. Goût moyen-amer de houblon résineux et citrique (pamplemousse) et aux faibles notes terreuses (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) accompagné d’un goût fruité (agrumes sucrées et abricots, traces de pêches) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel doux (faibles notes rôties) puis en finale l’on retrouve un regain d’amertume asséchante plus citrique et légèrement herbeuse ainsi que de faibles notes épicées (poivre). Post-goût long et moyennement sec, plutôt amer de houblon résineux, citrique et légèrement herbeux avec un goût fruité (zest d’agrumes et pelures d’abricots).

Tasted with BigMilly: Its a honey color thats very fizzy. It smells sweet and orangy. The taste is hoppy and bitter with little to no aftertaste. A mediumish body. Not to bad, but I’m not a hoppy girl.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2008
From can : Big time citrus hop aroma, as soon as you pour it you get a big whif of it. Pours a hazy amber gold color with a finger of white froathy head, that leaves some really nice lacing. Really a nice smooth hoppy taste, not much bitterness at all, but a really nice hop taste. Gets a little watery towards the end, but still good. Aftertaste is hints of hops, but not much. Medium body, and a really good feel in the mouth. I think this just became my #1 choice for a camping canned beer.

Nice roasted, hoppy flavor with a hint of sweetness, along with a great 6-pack price, makes this my current favorite "every day" beer.

Delicious. Pour was orangey brown, fantastic head and lacing. Aroma of faint grapefruits and caramel. The flavor was citrus, grapefruit and oranges, with hints of caramel. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Well balanced brew. This reminds me a lot of Bells Two Hearted, and that’s a good thing!

12 oz.can. Pours a clear amber color with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet malt, good citrus, and hoppy. The flavor is medium sweet malt, pine, citrus, and earthy. I love the balance of this beer. This is one I could drink all the time if it were more readily available and it happens to come in a can. Awesome!

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 9, 2008 Pours a clear, red-amber, with a thick, lasting, tan head. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Flavor is balanced sweet (honey and caramel). The Northern Brewer hops are a great complement, giving this a perfectly bitter flavor without the dry, earthy hop flavor of most American Pales (thank you OB). Palate is almost perfect...creamy and smooth. Don’t change a thing, this is an excellent Pale Ale.
