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.

From can : Big time citrus hop aroma, as soon as you pour it you get a big whif of it. Pours a hazy amber gold color with a finger of white froathy head, that leaves some really nice lacing. Really a nice smooth hoppy taste, not much bitterness at all, but a really nice hop taste. Gets a little watery towards the end, but still good. Aftertaste is hints of hops, but not much. Medium body, and a really good feel in the mouth. I think this just became my #1 choice for a camping canned beer.

Nice roasted, hoppy flavor with a hint of sweetness, along with a great 6-pack price, makes this my current favorite "every day" beer.

Delicious. Pour was orangey brown, fantastic head and lacing. Aroma of faint grapefruits and caramel. The flavor was citrus, grapefruit and oranges, with hints of caramel. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Well balanced brew. This reminds me a lot of Bells Two Hearted, and thatís a good thing!

12 oz.can. Pours a clear amber color with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet malt, good citrus, and hoppy. The flavor is medium sweet malt, pine, citrus, and earthy. I love the balance of this beer. This is one I could drink all the time if it were more readily available and it happens to come in a can. Awesome!

UPDATED: APR 9, 2008 Pours a clear, red-amber, with a thick, lasting, tan head. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Flavor is balanced sweet (honey and caramel). The Northern Brewer hops are a great complement, giving this a perfectly bitter flavor without the dry, earthy hop flavor of most American Pales (thank you OB). Palate is almost perfect...creamy and smooth. Donít change a thing, this is an excellent Pale Ale.

Pours a cloudy copper color with a small tan head. Wonderful aromas of caramel malt,hops and citrus.. Great citrus hop flavor that is solidly backed by caramel malt flavor. Wonderful bitter finish....and all this from a can! Wow, awesome stuff!

Pours an orangish yellow, with a white head, aroma of citrusy hops, flavor of citrusy hops with a malty backbone and a nice bitter finish. Pretty good beer in general, but superb for the style.

Whodathunkit? A great beer in a can. I like this even better than Oskarís canned Old Chub. It tastes to me like an IPA and ranks up there with the best of them. A nice value to boot with 12 packs going for 12 bucks around here.

Poured from can. The head was firm long lasting. Floated on my glass like a hockey puck for about 10 minutes. I fond it strong with a lingering after taste. Slightly bitter. I found none of the citrus or flowery qualities other have. I must not have a sophisticated pallet !?
