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.

Pours a very nice dark amber in color, with a nice two inches of pillowy head. Very hoppy on the nose, the smell is very inviting and is a great start. Taste is very hoppy, but much more balanced than the nose lets on. Good hop bitterness, but enough malt to keep it together. This is a very easy drinking, solid beer.

Golden orange with a fluffy offwhite head. Cant wait for this beer from a can. Citrusy hoppy and sweet malt aromas. bursting with flavor! pale malt and awesomely hoppy, little bit of bitterness on the tongue. Very bold and flavorful APA, extremely enjoyable!

As mentioned over and over, a total suprise based on it being from a can. Pours a fluffy golden orange. Smells very hoppy, but doesn’t out do the equal parts of malt. Depending on the can, it can be really hoppy or almost too malty. Either way, it’s a delight and a treat.

I loved this beer. Excellent head, great mouthfeel and nice citrusy bitterness. Very fresh, tended more to the IPA category.

Dale’s pale pours a nice toasted amber. Aroma is of nice bright hops. Taste is dominated by big citrus hops, and very balanced smooth malt. This beer is a great example of why you shouldn’t judge book by it’s cover. Big beer in a small can, Dig it!!!

Not bad at all. Tap at Brown Dog’s in Telluride. Full aroma of sweet hops, great malt bill for balance, and yes: a smooth finish. Flavors of apple, orange juice and brown sugar amongst the smooth malts.

(Can) Pours an orange/amber color with a small amount of head. Strong aroma of pine and citrus. Hops also dominated the flavor, with some subtle sweet caramel and biscuit notes. Sticky, thick mouthfeel. Lots of citrus in the finish as well. Relatively low carbonation. A very good beer, especially for being in a can. Not sure why this beer isn’t considered an IPA though...

Wow! I was really impressed with this beer. Not only was it relly flavorful and hoppy, it is full of football instinct. I had six of these and auctioned one solid fantasy footbal team.

Poured from a 12oz can hazy honey/amber color with a thick, tight foam cap. The nose is huge with grapefruit and pine with toasty/bready malts. The tastes starts with a snap of grassy, piney, grapefruit hops. Then comes sweet, caramel apple malt with some sweet and slightly boozy esters in the end to accompany an almost tongue-numbing hop bite. This is one of those sleeper beers. It comes at you all unassuming in it’s average looking can, then bam! it knocks you on your ass. Bravo. A very good American Pale.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Presentation: It was poured from tap into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a very nice orange amber color with good clarity and a thin white head. The head fades quickly leaving just a ring of bubbles on top and very little spotty lacing that slowly slides down the sides of the glass. Smell: The aroma has lovely aromatic hops with hints of citrus and mild pine notes. Under that there are light toasted and bready malt notes. Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor has a good malt base with a mildly sweet caramel and buttery toasted bread character that is balanced with a pleasant flavor and bitterness from the hops. Hop flavors include mild resin and citrus (grapefruit/lemon) notes. Its finish has a nice bitterness that slowly fades off the tongue. Its light to medium bodied with active carbonation that tickles the tongue. Notes: Overall it’s a very good easy drinking beer with plenty of flavor.
