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.

The beer pours a saddle leather amber with a thick white head that is mostly lasting with nice lacing. The nose is a bouquet of floral hops. The taste is IPA all the way. The front is a clean maltyness that is followed with a sharp bitterness that hits you in the back and sides of the mouth. The mouth feel is smooth and watery. The after taste is spicy hops.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2008
Poured a hazy amber color with a quickly dissipating off-white head leaving a little bit of lacing. Nose is dominated by citrus with a slight piney scent following. It tastes a bit like a hop-filled pine forest with a little bit of lemon zest thrown in. The hop flavor skews strongly to the bitter end of things, though in a good way. Sticky mouthfeel with a slight lingering bitterness. Though the bitterness can be a bit abrasive, I really enjoy this beer and always end up drinking more than I intend...I guess that makes it pretty drinkable!

Quite clear rosy amber with a small sticky white head. Nice looking ale. Floral citrus hop aroma with some butter. Very clean and well balanced in flavor with perfect bitterness. Excellent hop character, bright, complex and satisfying. My only complaint in the diacetyl notes which detract from an otherwise perfect beer.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2008
12oz can. Pours a clear orange with a thin off-white head. Nice strong smell of pine and citrus with some malt sweetness noticeable. Taste is pine, pine, pine with a hint of citrus. Yummy! Mouthfeel is medium with a good bitter aftertaste. Much like an IPA. Would have liked it a tad sweeter though it is still definitely the best pale Iíve had. Glad it is finally available in Texas.

ahalloin (54) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2008
Pours a filtered liquid gold color. Looks fantastic in the glass. The head is medium bodied with a small amount of lacing that lingers. The aroma is of pine, hops, with a touch of citrus. The mouthfeel is medium sharp with a decent amout of carbonation. Flavor is very hoppy for only a pale ale (i.e. not an IPA). The finish has the sting of bright hop flavors unlike anything I have had. Great beer!

Absolutely delicious beer in a can! Im so glad to see this in Wisc. Pours a vibrant orange colour with a nice full white head. Aroma is citrus with bright fruit, floral notes throughout the beer. and plenty of carbonation to keep this beer bubbling for a while. A winner from OB!
