3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pale gold and filtered. Moderate but fresh hop nose. A bit sweet and then turns bitter on the end-almost sour. A bit floral. Too carbonated, alcohol not present at all. Malty and very drinkable. Overall OK.

Can: Pour is light amber golden with a nice white head. Aroma is lightly floral with medium fresh hops. This brew was only canned just over a week ago. Hops are Very dominant in the flavor along with very floral characters. Damn fresh and damn nice. Would definitely buy again.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a coppery color with a white creamy head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is hoppy, but not hugely hoppy with some malty notes. The flavor follows up on this. This is a real nice pale ale with some excellent hop flavors and great malty background. The body is medium with medium carbonation. This is the best pale ale I’ve ever had from a can!!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can from a liquor store in northern Mass. Pours a hazy amber-orange with a good half inch of off-white head. Smells strongly of grapefruit/citrus hops with hints of caramel malt. Tastes like citrussy hops first, with undertones of caramel and biscuit malt. On the heavy side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation - flirting with viscosity without hitting it or losing drinkability. An exquisite APA for sure - one I’ll be drinking as regularly as I am able to. Good stuff.

Have had both on tap and in can, pours amber with a nice head, nice hoppy aroma, crisp, dry taste with a decent malt backing, finishes bitter, the beer was a bit better on tap in my experience

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Discount Liquor. Pour is a crystal clear reddish gold, thick fluffy head. Nose is distinctly C-hopped, though not as big of a hop nose as I’d expect. Definitely clean and no skunk thanks to the can. Very smooth with a refreshing bitterness. Wish I could get this as a regular in Illinois, especially for $8 a sixer. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 What a surprise! For a pale ale you think you’d taste more aluminum, but you don’t. Dale’s Pale Ale has a medium-sized frothy white head and thick lacing. Moderate carbonation and a clear orange-amber color. Light pale malt/hop aroma that’s sweet and a little grainy. Very bold pale malt/light hop presence in the mouth and a light, but definite bitter finish. Easy drinking, very enjoyable, and well-brewed. Better in a glass than straight out of the can, but if you’re looking for a beer to bring along with you on the river or lake, this is a great choice.

Very hoppy nose. Mostly a bitter hop flavor. Little to no head. Well balanced with mild sweetness. Caramel and some stray cat. Lasting bitter finish.

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.
