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.

What a surprise out of a can! Took this on a beach/camping trip and was not disappointed. Heavy hoppy hit up front, smooth but bitter finish.

12 oz. can from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Clear orange pour with a BIG head. Good lacing and retention. Citrus and resin hop aroma. Citrus taste with an unexpected bittersweetness to it that reminded be a bit of anise. Interesting.

Finally getting around to trying the beer. Initially I thought can beers were inferior thanks to macros. But I am glad I tried this and can’t believe I haven’t sooner. Just the right amount of hops for a pale, nice body and hard to put down.

Draft at TRIA in Philadelphia. Good hazy dark orange, good head. Great nose of American hops. Taste of sweet malts, orange, pine, grapefruit, with a bitter finish. Almost an IPA. Nice.

Clear amber with a tight head. Nice aroma is caramel and mild piney hops. Medium body. Hop forward bitter flavora are grapefruit and pine sap with a smooth, sweet maltiness to balance.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Cool can. Juicy hops, somewhat buttery/toffee araoma. Rather sweet, malty flavor with light citric hop notes. Lots of crystal malt here, it seems. Rather thick finish, lots of hop particulates which somewhat burn the throat. Good, but seems a little raw.

Good looking orange/golden beer with head that drew crazy lace everywhere. Nice fresh hop aroma with notes of caramel and oranges. Quite dry finish.
