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.

Orange/amber color with a large tiny bubbled white head. Aroma bigs hops with lots of citrus and some herbs. Flavor is peppery and spicy but nicely balanced with caramel sweetness. Long sweet finish with lots of residual bitterness.

12 ounce can in pint glass. Bright copper with lasting beige head and lace. Fresh hop, citrus and bread aroma. Exceptionally well balanced flavors of malt sweetness, mild fruitiness, hop bitterness, and, best of all, hop flavor. Medium body and carbo. Good enough to drink often and in large quantities. Excellent.

wow. Just goes to show you, you canít judge a brew by itís container. This is like that lil whitekwhatever from belgium that comes in that ol petite can. This is hugely hoppy, but has immense flavour to it. More so than any of the sierraís or others Iíve had. Lotís on the swish. Ripe grapefruits, malts, creme, berries, and a touch of barely and mint. Very entertaining.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 Had this one for the first time at a tasting a few months back. I was surprised at how flavorful it was since I am not used to drinking such full-flavored beer from a can. One of my current favorites. Nice hoppy flavor.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Poured into a pint glass with a burnt hazy amber colour with a medium white creamy head. Nose of grapefruit hops and sweet malts. Initial taste is softly carbonated that pours over the palate with a delicate touch of caramel. Balancing on the finish with sharp bitter hops and light red berry. Smooth finish. Good palate duration. Good head retention and lacing of the glass. Body is light to medium and very drinkable. Refreshing and tasty american pale that shows this style can be very enjoyable. Nice job!

Interesting to see a beer like this in a can...but nonetheless, this was a very good pale ale. I got the 6 pack for $4.99 too which was cool.

Can. Pours amber with voluminous white head. Aroma is fully of piney hops along with some caramel maltiness in the background. The lacing on this bad boy is something else, almost Houblon-like. Taste is lightly hoppy with more of the malty flavors coming out. Very well-balanced. I could drink this all day long and would willingly do so. Pretty full palate and finishes bitter.

The beer poursour a nice amber color with a thick had and some really nice streaks along the sides of the glass which is good for a pale ale. The aroma is nice and malty with hops and carmel. As the beer warms up and you take a sip it is nice and rich with carmel and toffee and the flavor coats the inside of your mouth much like candy would if you were sucking on it. the palte is extreamly good leavein those nice hoppy and smooth candy flavors lasting for a while.

Very subtle hops aroma up front. Thick murky amber color - looks heavy and thick and has stellar lacing. Sharp bitterness on the tongue but not overpowering. Has some slight sweetness to it that is very pleasant and well balanced with the hops. It gets much better as it warms - smoother and the flavor really stands out. I would love to have again. Strange sensation about this one though - almost seems as though there is something different in each sip - a different flavor of hops or perhaps malt that only shows up in some but not all of the drinks of it. Strange - almost like it isnít fully mixed or blended, or something like that. Either way - I really enjoyed this one - it was like a surprise in every sip that you took.

Good pale ale! Has a nice hoppy bite, and is amazing for a canned beer. Thanks CT for the tastes, definitly have to get my own pack some time.
