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.

gold, cottonwood head. bold hop aroma with a creamy edge. now thatís how I likes it! long lasting, rounded, flavorful bitterness rises quickly, plateaus, and maintains at length. anything more polarized would seems like an attempt at an ipa. base reminds me of a few cream ales iíve had. very pure bitterness, nearly goes over the top and into astringent, but commands the tightrope and finishes memorable.

Whoops, missed rating this in the past... Strongly hopped (west coast style) APA. Plenty of hop aroma pours out of the can opening to let you prepare your tongue for the fresh hoppy, citrusy and slightly sweet flavor. crisp, somewhat bitter finish. Borders on IPA. Appearance = can. Expect it will be as good or better in a glass.

Can courtesy of Mar. I really liked this beer. To me, this is what a hoppy american pale ale should taste like. Definitely an everyday drinker. Can, clear orange, almost apple juice color, very hoppy nose, citrusy and sweet. Flavor was malty, creamy. Perfect hop balance. Not overwhelmingly hoppy, very smooth to drink.

I had to pour this into a glass. Just couldnít drink it from a can. Perfect appearance. Taste different than I expected or any other Pale Iíve tried.Sort of fruity but I canít figure out which it is. Very good.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 30, 2008
Pours with a nice and thick, off-white head covering a slightly chill hazed golden-brown body. Really good lacing and retention on the head. Aroma is fruity, with hops and some brown sugar. Taste is one-dimensionally bitter with a metallicy note. Mouthfeel is syrupy and a good level of carbonation.

Pours a nice copper color into the glass with small head. Aroma is big and hoppy. Really wonderful flavor with plenty of hop punch and nice malts. This beer has relatively low carbonation, but really benefits from it. Would buy again!

texasbartender (160) - Sugarland, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2008
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!
