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.

Canned! Golden-amber colour with a white film on top. Pleasant aroma of cotton candy, sweet hops and a hint of raspberries? Great hop flavour but definitely not overpowering or grossly bitter. Very pleasant.

Very nice. A wonderful aroma hits you as you pop the can. that’s right, a can. Nice pour and good flavor. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

Very tasty brew! This stuff is very surprising coming from a canned beer. Aroma is very sweet and pours a hazy orange color with a crisp white head. taste is a hoppy sweet flavor. finishies very smooth. Would drink again.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 pours thick amber, fluffy tan head. subtle aroma, probably too subtle, with only a hoppy hint. the flavor is not complex enough, and is slightly bitter. a watery mouth feel. weakly disappointing. but cornfield, rayboy01, jackson220, elgaucho, frankenkitty, brideoffrankenkitty and a couple others know why i think the name is just plain cool.

12 oz. can - pours clear copper with big creamy head; slight suspended haze and quite a bit of lacing;aromas are of malts, sweet candy and a little hops; flavor a little on the light side, but body becomes creamy as it warms

can from 7th street spirits. this was my second installment from oskar blues and I must say I am really digging their style. At first taste the hops attack the tastebuds creating a burnt bitter flavor but as the palate adjusts and the beer warms the beer is really enjoyed. This is one that you have to be patient with - donit write it off too early. Pours golden slightly darker than the standard APA. Smell is rich and very full - sweet and citrusy. tastes is very much like the smell. well done.

Can from mcbackus. Pours a cloudy orange with anice white head. Aoma is very good, lots of hops and citrus. Tase is very clean, slightly earthy. Finish is powerful with hops. Very nice.

Shaker glass. Pours gold with a one finger head. Aroma a nice milx of caramel/toffee malts and floral hops. This is a well balanced beer with sweet malts and a nice bitter finish. Extremely drinkable. Another fine addition to a mind-blowing beer week!

Arguably close to an IPA... very fruity hops and way too easy to drink. I assumed this was closer to 5.5-6% abv. A bit thin on the palate, but that’s my only complaint. This is dangerously drinkable.

Draught at Oldsmar Tap House. Copper body with some amber highlights. 2 finger thick off white head, great retention and lacing. Head is densely packed, very soapy and sudsy looking. Hops attack the nose on first whiff, followed by a wave of caramel/toffee hops, then more citrus and piney notes. Flavor profile consists of tons of citrus and green hops, sweet caramel malts, some grassy notes and then more bitter citrus fruits. Medium bodied, very creamy for an APA. Slick on the tongue, very easy to drink. Finish is lengthy, full of bitterness and ensuing sweetness, then citrus fruits and pine that carry on. Great beer.
