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.

Can poured medium orange with a great creamy off white head. Medium caramel and malt aroma. Nice grassy and herbal hop bitterness. Not too much of a bite. Good malt to match the bitterness with a great chocolate malt flavor. My go to pale ale that you can find easily.

can a friend provided. Pours orange with a 1 finger tan head. Nose is sweet and hoppy and full of a punch of citrus. Taste is sweet and citrussy and more like an IPA. Great brew.

BillKismet (3764) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Bronze amber with a light hopped head. Medley of hops and caramel malt and twinge of fruitiness and old shoe.Flavor branches consistently from flavor. Hops, caramel malt and some fruitiness. More similar to a red/ESB than an APA in my opinion.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Strong taste for a pale. You can taste the quality of the hops. Not a lot of citrus or sweetness which is a nice change of pace for an ale this bitter. Very drinkable - I love drinking from a can again!

Always a treat. Amber with nice white head. Citrus hop aroma. Creamy and soft on the tongue with hops following close behind to spice things up. Dry and citrusy flavor. Nice and clean.

demitriustown (1181) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2008
12 oz can: Aroma had a nice grassy/hoppy aroma, citrus, light caramel malt notes, and that’s about it. Poured a golden/ lightly amber pour with a fluffy white head that diminishes into a soapy white film. Taste is almost chewy. Hops and a melding of flvors makes this brew really interesting to me. Nicley carbonated and has a nice mouthfeel. Overall, I like this stuff. Would like it more if I could get it regularly in Michigan. Cheers!!

Nice find, thanks to BFC. Very nice example of what a Pale Ale should be. Nice yellow color. Armoa is copper and hops. Flavor is nice and bitter, with a tart, dry finish. Solid malt backbone allows the hops to shine. Different hop flavors swirl around and come in and out. ABV is perfect for this one. All around great taste, and very refreshing. Perfect fishing beer!

V - amber color, refreshing for what’s termed a pale ale.
A - somewhat hoppy aroma with some hefe type elements
T - hoppy with some more malts in the taste
P - much more like an IPA.
