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.

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.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2008
This is a solid beer. At first it reminded me of Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale with the floral aroma and hoppy aftertaste, but this beer takes it a little further. It is much more polished with a nice malt profile, and the hops are not quite as harsh, but you get the strong floral aromas with the bitter finish. This beer has no serious flaw, only perhaps the hop profile is not as broad as it only activates a subset of the palate. Overall, this is a very solid brew and highly recommended.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2008
Orange colored with slight cloudiness. Little white head. Strong fruits and caramel in aroma, some rich aromatic flowery hops also here. Medium bodied. Flavor is more hopped with same aromatic flowers, soapy palated hops here too. Aftertaste lasts with same bitter fruits. Rich flavored pa.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2008
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.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2008
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.

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!!

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2008
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
