A fine canned beer! What a pleasure to drink. Pours with a long lasting head. Great hopped taste. The malt is perfect for me in this beer. Beautiful color in the glass. Enjoy this beer on a hot day on ice with a thick deli sandwitch. Will even bring you luck when Steelhead fishing.

12oz can from ClarkVV. First off, im giving the appearance a 5 because I drank it out of the can which was beutiful. The nose was light crisp hops, some caramel, grass and a light fizzyness. Taste is a fresh crisp hop with some lightly stingy carbonation. A subtle malt back bone containing caramel and some fresh cut grass. Oh how I miss the days of drinking from a can.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
CAN. Best canned beer Iíve yet to try (although Iíll always have a sweet spot in my heart for Colt 45 in a can). Although I generally enjoy it straight from the can, it has a lovely pour with big birdseye bubbles and a red tinged golden hue. The hops are indeed voluminous but soft enough to enjoy a whole six pack in a sitting. The only complaint here is that the beer is inconsistant (some batches are a little on the bland side) and Iíve had a problem with low pours in the canning process. But, despite all that my coworkerís favorite catch phrase rings true: Daleís Pale Ale never fails to make the sale!

(Can) Sampled at the Central New York Brewfest in Syracuse, NY. I heard the rep bragging that they are the first brewery to go to a full canning production line. Medium tan head with a deep orange body. Nose of smoked out cascade hops. The flavour is somewhat lactic and hoppy yet good in a strange way.

Yup, I never saw this coming. How can, can beer be so good? This is a hard-core hopped beer from the aroma all the way to the end. Dales Pale Ale is perfect the for camping trip or just chilling at the crib. Iím on my way to get another 6pk ASAP.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color, smallish head after pouring from the can. Hoppy, but somewhat of a metallic flavor I think. Not sure I really like the can thing. Itís a decent pale ale, but I wouldnít really seek it out.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Late 2005 or early 2006 six-pack Consumed over a number of days in late January. I done drinked it straight from the can, so I donít know íbout no ípearance. No just kidding, itís a clear marigold with loads of fairly dense, lasting (and lightly lacing) beige colored head, plenty of bubbles rising. Nose is rough and raw hop greeness. Juicy, very floral and citric at the same time, without any real fruitiness. Bits of grass clippings, touch of pine. Malt is caramelly sweet in the nose, but allows the hop aroma to dominate. Light sourness from munich-like grains. The flavor shows more of the melanoidins from the malt, and plenty of hop bitterness. Plant-like and green, itís more floral than anything, with a very dry, unripened grapefruit flavor, orange rinds and light touches of pine sap. Malts almost seem to add to the dryness, especially on the end, as it comes off extremely bready. Fitting carbonation for a can, not over-the-top, but certainly present. Papery-bready mouthfeel, softened a touch by the caramel maltiness, but barely so. No alcohol apparency. After it warms, the breadiness, crystally/caramely malt simplicity and monotonous hop acidity become too heavy on the palate.
