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.

Can from Discount Liquor. Pour is a crystal clear reddish gold, thick fluffy head. Nose is distinctly C-hopped, though not as big of a hop nose as I’d expect. Definitely clean and no skunk thanks to the can. Very smooth with a refreshing bitterness. Wish I could get this as a regular in Illinois, especially for $8 a sixer. Nice.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 What a surprise! For a pale ale you think you’d taste more aluminum, but you don’t. Dale’s Pale Ale has a medium-sized frothy white head and thick lacing. Moderate carbonation and a clear orange-amber color. Light pale malt/hop aroma that’s sweet and a little grainy. Very bold pale malt/light hop presence in the mouth and a light, but definite bitter finish. Easy drinking, very enjoyable, and well-brewed. Better in a glass than straight out of the can, but if you’re looking for a beer to bring along with you on the river or lake, this is a great choice.

Very hoppy nose. Mostly a bitter hop flavor. Little to no head. Well balanced with mild sweetness. Caramel and some stray cat. Lasting bitter finish.

Can poured medium orange with a great creamy off white head. Medium caramel and malt aroma. Nice grassy and herbal hop bitterness. Not too much of a bite. Good malt to match the bitterness with a great chocolate malt flavor. My go to pale ale that you can find easily.

can a friend provided. Pours orange with a 1 finger tan head. Nose is sweet and hoppy and full of a punch of citrus. Taste is sweet and citrussy and more like an IPA. Great brew.

Bronze amber with a light hopped head. Medley of hops and caramel malt and twinge of fruitiness and old shoe.Flavor branches consistently from flavor. Hops, caramel malt and some fruitiness. More similar to a red/ESB than an APA in my opinion.

Strong taste for a pale. You can taste the quality of the hops. Not a lot of citrus or sweetness which is a nice change of pace for an ale this bitter. Very drinkable - I love drinking from a can again!
