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. Pours a light amber/copper color, good inch of off-white thick head foams up and sticks around for a good long time. Great aromas- smooth sweet caramel sits behind loads grapefruit, orange peels, and other sharp citrus notes. Flavors follow the nose, with malt sweetness fading further into the background. Not too much bitterness, but loads of lemon-lime, blood orange, grapefruit, and other fruit notes. Enough bitterness to give those fruit notes some nice sharp bite. Palate is full and even, with a nice lightly bitter finish. Overall, a superb pale ale.

Can. No pour. Hops, citrus and some pine to the nose. Flavors of hops, malt, and some citrus. Awesome beer.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Can. Poured a clear orange with an off-white head that left good lacing. The aroma finds caramel, citrus, and some floral. The flavor is much the same with big hops standing out. Medium body and moderate bitterness throughout. Very nice!

While I could savor my Dale’s Pale Ale from the can, only in emergencies or dire situations will that ever arise. Instead, I poured her clear golden orange body into my ale glass and watched gleefully as a rich head almost immediately formed, fading down into a good ring around my glass. From the foam alone, brussels lace adheres to my glass like seaweed on rice. A ripe assault of fresh citrus and grassy hops with a hint of caramel malts converge on my olfactory senses. Beautiful. I can tell I am in for a hoperific pale ale. Sweet caramel right up front, smooth and creamy body, with a bitter zing of pine and sweet grass coming in second. An oily finish that doesn’t immediately dry my palate, but leaves my mouth watering for more. Each quaff leaves an amazingly huge blanket of brussels lace all over my glass. As Dale’s Pale Ale warms up a bit, the palate softens and the malts meld well with the hop oils, resiny pine, and zesty bitter citrus finish. I really like how it’s maltier up front with hints of caramel and nuts, then moving over into hop territory.
Pack a sixer for a hike in the woods or day out on the water, and you can’t go wrong.

Appearance is burningly bright orange with amber highlights, thin white lacing of head is minimal, fair lacing on the glass. Smell is moderate pine and citrus hops with sweet caramel/pale malts in the background, nice presence for a pale ale. Taste is a nice mix of lighter caramel sweetened malts and more of a pine resin hops, some floral and orange tones pop up in the middle, finishes mildly bitter with biscuit malts. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, smooth and thick texture adds more heft than most pales, mild carbonation. Drinkability is high, a bold and nicely hopped pale ale with great malt presence and balance, the alcohol is non-descript and there is enough here to keep drinking all night long. My current favorite all-around beer, this is so solid!

Draft at Buffalo Brewfest. Pours orange with a white head. Light floral aroma with a touch of caramel. Well balanced flavor with floral and grassy hops. Nice.

Poured from a 12-oz can copper with a nice fluffy white head. Hoppy citrus smell dominated. The taste is essentially the same as the smell, but with some malt coming through to balance it out.

Thought this was an ok beer, but the novelty of good beer in a can wore off pretty quickly. Poured an amber color with a whitish head. Aroma of citrus and sweet malt. Flavor of malt and yeast with a good hop balance. Good beer.
