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.

12 fl oz can. Pours orange with a frothy tan head. Aroma is dough and fruity hops. Flavour is sweet caramel, mild liqourice like note and fruity hops. Lingering finish with a solid bitterness. Lovely, smooth and straight forward American Pale Ale.

The balance of this brew is its best quality. A fresh tasting northwestern hop profile is perfectly married with a rich caramel malt backbone in a highly drinkable, smooth PA that few can rival. There is not much that can be said about this beer, but it is certainly quality and a great session beer, not too mention a good intro to micros for your less educated buddies.

Enjoyed on draft at the OB brewpub. This beer is great in the can, but that much better fresh on draft. Big citrusy, west coast hop aroma embodied in a golden orange brew topped with whipped white head. Perfect hop balance with malt backbone to boot. Clean finish with lingering hop perfection. Relatively high alcohol content for a Pale Ale is well masked by malt and hops. One of the best pales in the country.

This beer is becoming one of my favorite pale ales. The unique flavor is that of a traditional PA but with sweet under currents. Very well made and complex brew.

highibus (737) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Thick creamy white head on top of a nice amber color. Aroma is slight hops (might be a little cold) and a little malt. Flavor is nice and spicy hops and good malt backbone. Great version of a pale ale.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Orange/amber color with a large tiny bubbled white head. Aroma bigs hops with lots of citrus and some herbs. Flavor is peppery and spicy but nicely balanced with caramel sweetness. Long sweet finish with lots of residual bitterness.

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 4, 2008
12 ounce can in pint glass. Bright copper with lasting beige head and lace. Fresh hop, citrus and bread aroma. Exceptionally well balanced flavors of malt sweetness, mild fruitiness, hop bitterness, and, best of all, hop flavor. Medium body and carbo. Good enough to drink often and in large quantities. Excellent.

wow. Just goes to show you, you canít judge a brew by itís container. This is like that lil whitekwhatever from belgium that comes in that ol petite can. This is hugely hoppy, but has immense flavour to it. More so than any of the sierraís or others Iíve had. Lotís on the swish. Ripe grapefruits, malts, creme, berries, and a touch of barely and mint. Very entertaining.
