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.

Draft at Mad Mex (Monroeville). Pours a medium amber, no real head to speak of. Aroma is semi-sweet, hoppy. Flavor is a nice, mild hop profile some touches of floral and pine.

Pours a very nice dark amber in color, with a nice two inches of pillowy head. Very hoppy on the nose, the smell is very inviting and is a great start. Taste is very hoppy, but much more balanced than the nose lets on. Good hop bitterness, but enough malt to keep it together. This is a very easy drinking, solid beer.

Golden orange with a fluffy offwhite head. Cant wait for this beer from a can. Citrusy hoppy and sweet malt aromas. bursting with flavor! pale malt and awesomely hoppy, little bit of bitterness on the tongue. Very bold and flavorful APA, extremely enjoyable!

As mentioned over and over, a total suprise based on it being from a can. Pours a fluffy golden orange. Smells very hoppy, but doesn’t out do the equal parts of malt. Depending on the can, it can be really hoppy or almost too malty. Either way, it’s a delight and a treat.

I loved this beer. Excellent head, great mouthfeel and nice citrusy bitterness. Very fresh, tended more to the IPA category.

Dale’s pale pours a nice toasted amber. Aroma is of nice bright hops. Taste is dominated by big citrus hops, and very balanced smooth malt. This beer is a great example of why you shouldn’t judge book by it’s cover. Big beer in a small can, Dig it!!!

Not bad at all. Tap at Brown Dog’s in Telluride. Full aroma of sweet hops, great malt bill for balance, and yes: a smooth finish. Flavors of apple, orange juice and brown sugar amongst the smooth malts.

(Can) Pours an orange/amber color with a small amount of head. Strong aroma of pine and citrus. Hops also dominated the flavor, with some subtle sweet caramel and biscuit notes. Sticky, thick mouthfeel. Lots of citrus in the finish as well. Relatively low carbonation. A very good beer, especially for being in a can. Not sure why this beer isn’t considered an IPA though...

Wow! I was really impressed with this beer. Not only was it relly flavorful and hoppy, it is full of football instinct. I had six of these and auctioned one solid fantasy footbal team.
