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.

Hazy, deep orange color. Lively head leaves some lacing. A lavender soapy smell dominates the aromas, though a little citrus is present, too. Bitter, full palate. Soapy hops, grassy up front and finishing more acidic. Almost creamy. The value in this beer is the true hop character.

Pours slightly cloudy, tap like head. Great depth of body, very "full" beer. Hops and alcohol, while strong, do not overpower. Very well balanced beer.

Much hoppier than I remember it being the first few times that I tasted it. Really more of an IPA than a pale ale, which wasn’t what I was looking for when I picked this up again. Pours a nice copper color with fairly low carbonation. Aroma is of huge centennial citrusy hops, as is the taste. Flavor is not overly complex whatsoever, displaying one-dimensional citrus hop taste with a mild malt backbone that doesn’t intrude. That’s really about it. A great beer when you’re in the mood for an IPA, a decent one when you’re not, and a horrid beer when you don’t want hops. At least it’s in a can :-)

Malty, bitter, caramely, delicious. Pretty complex for a pale ale, and a great little can. God’s gift to camping and the beach, at least while Sly Fox isnt widely distributed. Almost an IPA, and certainly more of an IPA than some so called IPAs.

Still have a hard time buying canned beer but since this was on sale had to try it. Amber in color and heavy on the floral hop smells. The taste kind of put me off at first with the pine hop flavor but after a while it grew on me. Other than the intense floral and pine hop flavors the heavy malt is also notable. While not bad it is not something I would purchase again unless it is on sale.

Can... Light orange in color, small head that faded quickly. Malty, sugary aroma. Taste is the same. Light roasted malts maybe...sugary, light hops. Still well balanced. Good texture/body. Overall, at 6 percent alcohol pretty strong for a pale ale. It could be an IPA or something else. Overall good beer

Great pale ale, might be the best. Dont be fooled by the can. Tastes great and would recommend to anyone.

Bright orange amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of flowers, hops, and carmel. Taste is hoppy with some caramel.

pours an orange honey color with a thick foamy white head. nice retention and lacing. aroma is of light malt, bread, cream soda, and apricot or peach. flavor follows suit with mych of the same. mouthfeel is a bit watery and lacks any co2 action.

Pours a nice opaque orange with a surprisingly dense head for a canned beer. Very nice balance of citrus hops (some mandarin) and sweet caramel malts. It has a bready aftertaste that I love, and a very refreshing flavor with a thick mouthfeel. Entirely satisfying - I’m very impressed, even though there isn’t really anything special or extraordinary about it besides the novelty of the can. Will be trying to get my hands on more Oskar Blues very soon!
