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.

Thanks BOLTZ7555 for the brew. Pours a clear cooper from the can. Almost no head or carbonization. A little citrus hoppy aroma and some bitterness. A solid American Pale Ale. I have just been spoiled by fresh Alpha King.

It comes from a can and tastes amazing. Hoppy but in a very clear and crisp way. A great portable beer.

BeerBunker (962) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Not too heavy on the carbonation. Aroma is of hops, some citrus, and an earthy note I can’t quite put my finger on. Taste is bitter hops up front, with citrus and grass to follow. Hoppiness dies quickly, leaving a bland taste in the mouth. Tasty, but lacking something to really make it something to drink again..

can - Pours lightly hazy copper with a fluffy, two finger head. It has a good citrus hop aroma and tastes moderately hopped with light citrus and pine notes. This ale is a tasty example of the style.

Can. Pours a dark copper color with large white, frothy head. Aromas of hops, citrus, and more hops. Lively carbonation and a surprisingly softer hop aftertaste when considering the smell of the brew. Unfortunately the only taste is hops, and even for a hop-head like me something else is needed.

Pours a copper color with a relatively thin white head. Plentiful aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste is also very hoppy, balanced with toasted malt. Turns a bit sour at the finish, with reminders of grapefruit. This is a nice, complex beer with a broad character. Not perfectly balanced, but diverse. Reminds a bit of Stoudt’s American Pale Ale, but not as well balanced. I’m also not a fan of anything in a can....

Ratman197 (13084) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2008
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a hazy orange with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and pine. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry lightly bitter finish.

Taste 10/8 Can. A mix between a pale ale and a premium bitter. Creamy and full bodied. Pretty good.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - OCT 17, 2008
12oz. from the brewery, canning date 10/2/08. Fresh, fruity and sweet aroma, citric and lightly malty, with notes of pine, orange, toasty biscuit and toffee. Clear medium amber color with a lasting, fine head. Flavor profile clearly shows the balance that this beer is known for, with prominent but not overwhelming hoppiness, bringing a good dosage of spicy bitterness, pine and citrus flavor, blended with a gently sweet, toasty, honeyish maltiness that helps round things out nicely. Amply carbonated but not overly so, palate is smooth and a tad oily, body is medium. Certainly one of the better examples of this style one is likely to run across.
