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.

Hank1980 (963) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Pours a clear copper with a fluffy beige. Aroma of hops, with some pine and citrus. Taste is hoppy, though not as forward as some others. Finish is not too bitter, body is medium. Not a bad APA.

330ml can (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Bitter and Sour 2008)
Amber copper, tiny head. Citrus fruity hoppy aroma. Very lemony taste. Not lemonade, lemon. Very hoppy, grassy. Apart from that, or because of that, it’s pretty dull.

mansquito (4101) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Pours with a slightly off-white head (long-lasting) and a copper body. Nose is of the flowery hops. Really earthy hops. Not too much fruitiness. Almost a little on the sweet side. Grass all around. Pretty good stuff.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2008
(USA) Courtesy of AFI96, Thx Waylo. Color is amber with a thin off white head. There is a grassy / citrus aroma with a sharp hop taste. the finish is bitter but in a good way.!!!

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2008
(Canned) Hazy amber with a small, but firm and lacy head. Smoothly pine-hoppy aroma with nutty-toffeeish maltiness. Sweetish, very aromatic-hoppy, pine-citrusy flavor with a strongly bitter, dry finish. Medium-bodied, dry and bitter palate with soft carbonation. Bitterness is a tad harsh, but other than that, this is a pretty solid and balanced, strongly hopped pale ale.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Can. Body-dark honey brown with a lasting foamy off white head with good lacing. Nose-flat pale ale, crisp PNW hops. Taste-very clean, just the right amount of hops, biscuit malts, light unacidic citrus, grape, light grass, medium CO2, very light white spices, light bread, low alcohol, light earth/soil, light astringency on the finish. All in all, one helluva beer.

Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Draft for pint night at Greenleafe cafe. Reddish amber with ample slightly off-white head. Very fruity hop aroma follows through in the flavor. Malty backbone is not evident but clearly balances the beer extremely well. No lingering bitterness

travita (4415) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Amber colored to almost red in color with nice foamy head. The smell wafts into our nose with hops, grass, malt. Good balance there. Smooth crisp taste. Superb feel at the back of the mouth.
