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.

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.

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 I’m not complaining.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Clear copper pour, small white head that fades away. Aroma is lots of caramael malt just a big sweet blast of it. Flavor is the same tons of caramel sweetness, some biscuit and grapefruit hops mainly. Mild hop bitterness with a thick chewy malty mouthfeel just a lot of body to this. Hop flavor could be more but the citrus and grapefruit are there. Good pale ale.

Amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Big hoppy aroma, mostly pine, with some peach, orange, grass, and furthermore some toffee, malt and bread. Sweet and malty with enough bitterness and hop flavour to embarras most IPAs. Lasting grapefruit and pine aftertaste. Big and creamy mouthfeel.

The aroma is reallly hoppy...I would have labeled it as an IPA if i had to guess. The flavor is hoppy as well, not crazy bitterness... maybe some citrus in there? grapefruit?

Great pour with a nice head and a nice copper color that absorbs the light. The aroma is hoppy with a bit of an orange smell. Nice sweet and hoppy taste with a clean finish. An excellent pale ale!

Had this beer on 4/23/2003. Aroma is full of fresh hops. Color is a crisp clear gold with ok carbonation and a nice head. When opening the can it seems as though there is going to be no carbonation but this is not the case. Taste is fresh and hoppy. Starting with a light body it goes down with a lightly cream feel. Finish is a creamy malt flavor baked by a fresh hop flavor and nice bitterness. Overall this is a top notch pale ale.

Can thanks to radiomg. As the can says it’s a "Mutha of a Pale Ale", very true. Pours a dark amber/orange with nice off-white head and sticky lacing. A huge amount of bitter resinous hops, grapefruit, and citrus. Plenty of malt to back it up too, caramel, brown sugar, and bread. Very well balanced and goes way beyond many IPA.
