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.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Poured from a can. Pours a clear tawny color with a nice white head. Aroma of piney hops. Nice citrus, piney hop flavor that is just the right viscosity. Easy to drink, another good one from Oskar Blues.

aerosol999 (113) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2007
Appearance: Pale gold with a thick clingy head. Aroma: Almost wheaty, clean, hops are like sweet tarts candy. Very clean, very hoppy, distinct grapefruit rind aroma. Flavour: Clean and citrusy hop character, resinous bitterness, almost piney, good balace with malty sweet character. Mouthfeel: Light body creamy and well carbonated. Overall: Assertively bitter, resinous hops clean and a little like a pale ale on steroids. Who says you canít get good beer in a can?

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - DEC 3, 2007
A perfect appearance just cause itís in a can. HA. This is definitely an IPA, and a particularly brutal one at that. All hops, piney with no citrus, a bit like green bananas.

danhitch (17) - USA - DEC 3, 2007
Can: Poured clear amber with a long lasting off-white head. Aroma was slightly piney. The initial taste was hoppy, which then faded to a caramel and cardboard like malt taste, and then finished with a pleasant soft hop taste. Not a bad beer, but not great.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Hazy amber body, medium sized bubbles in off white head; Medium sized quite sweet hoppy slightly caramelled nose; Soft carbonation, soft texture, oth very nice, bitter but a little to sweet to be very fresh; Bitter sweet finish to full to be really fresh. Alright beer, not boring at all just a bit out of balance and a bit strangely composed.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Can. Re-rated 2013-03-14. Dark golden/orange color color with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrusfruit, flowers and caramel. Tastes is first a bit sweet then hoppy with notes of citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel, alcohol, a hint of plastic. The finish is bitter, dry and a bit metallic. Too much alcohol and hint of plastic messes up the drinkability for me.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Can from beerlando. Aroma of sweeter cereal malt and grassy, citrus and slightly musty hops. Pours full copper with a big white head leaving excellent lacing. Nice APA flavor. Restrained hops and some decent sweeter malt. Medium to full bodied and quite creamy on the palate. Finishes quite crisp and dry. A very sessionable APA.

nearbeer (3665) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Clear copper-brown with a large rocky head that lasts. Big caramel, orange, and christmas tree aroma is nice. Spicy resin-citrus tames the big malty caramel taste well. Some nutty, earthy flavors develop in the mix as well. Palate is nearly medium-bodied and smooth. Seems like it could really be an IPA as far as the hop content, but Iím not complaining.
