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.

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - APR 9, 2008
Can. Pours a yellowish amber with a decent off white head. There is some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is lightly hoppy with some citrus flavors coming out. The taste is slightly sweetness but then the bitterness come on strong. There is a bit of apple in the flavor. The body is medium and the finish is dry. This is an excellent beer although this seems a bit more of an IPA than an American Pale ale.

janelso3 (7) - USA - APR 8, 2008 does not count
This is a great beer. Not as good as Dogfish Head (which I consider to be the gold standard of IPAs), but excellent nonetheless. The best (or maybe only) IPA you will ever find in a can. Delicious hops, but extremely short finish. Still, recommended.

glennmastrange (2400) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2008
Can. Moderate aromas of light bread, roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy hop smells of sweet orange, light leather fir the yeast, toffee and a faint berry note in the background. Head is creamy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic and the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation. It finishes lightly astringent. Another surprise from OB out of a can. Both a good drinking beer and a quality sipping beer.

I am no the biggest fan of pale ales, but this one is definately at the top of the heap. Smooth mouthfeel, easyily drinkability. This is a great product, and will make me try oskar blues again. I think the can is wonderful, and the beer tasted very fresh

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 5, 2008
355 ml can, shared with my neighbour Kjetil. 1/3 of the can on table and floor before I reached the glass. Hazy amber color, off-white head. Aroma is ok hops. Flavor is hops and sweet malt, but most of all watery. Boring, a big disappointment. Must be something wrong with this can - maybe I will re-rate it one day.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2008
Can from ucusty. Pours a orange/amber color with a nice off white head. Has a slight hop aroma that leads to a nice hoppy ale. Isn’t overpowering a has a nice sweet malt flavor on the back end. A highly hopped pale ale. I love it!

jrmac (331) - South Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2008
Pours a cloudy brown with a nice thick head. hops on the nose along with citrus. Smooth hops oon the palate with just a touch of too much bitterness for my liking. Overall a good beer for the style.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 4, 2008
Pours with a slightly cloudy amber-orange body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly bitter with an underlying sweetness, a touch of hops and a little mustiness. Medium bodied and smooth.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2008
Can. Pours a deep coppery brown with good sized white head. Aroma is big time floral hops. Taste is smooth and bitter with long flavorful hop finish. I think the ratings here (including mine) are influenced by the novelty of having a good beer in a can.
