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. Amber with a huge offwhite head, a little unclear. Very aromatic with hopp aromas, citrus, floral notes. Malty taste and quite much hoppy bitterness in the end. A nice beer. This one reminds me a lot of Mikkellers hoppy IPAs.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2008
Pours clear orange amber with a very thin white head. Strong citrus hop aroma. Beautiful hop flavor with a bit of an earthy flavor on the finish. Not quite as high drinkability as some pale ales, but a very good beer nonetheless.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours a beautifully crisp, clear honey amber with a tall foamy white head. Pouring just wafts hop aromas into the air. A closer smell reveals some light malt and fruit tones too. Initial taste is almost apple juice like. The finish has an excellent layered hop character that leaves just a little sweet bitterness on the tongue for a while after swallowed. Ultra smooth body.

This is the finest pale ale that I have had the opportunity to consume. I often describe it as a brew for an I.P.A. drinker who would like something a bit lighter. I feel that most pale ale drinkers would find it to be overly hoppy. As many others have said, this beer is proof that a can can hold and incredible full bodied ballsy beer.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - APR 12, 2008
Can poured into a lager glass. Nice hoppy aroma with a really nice brownish color. The head was solid and stuck around. Very well balanced but the hops still really pop out at you. I loved this beer. I have to say I was very impressed. Thanks to the can a new camping or festival top pick. Can’t beat it. Thanks Dale.

Can. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Powerfull hoppy fruity aroma. Malt detected very complex. Powerfull hopy flavor. Very nice moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Fantastic well-balaced beer.

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - APR 9, 2008
Can. Pours a yellowish amber with a decent off white head. There is some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is lightly hoppy with some citrus flavors coming out. The taste is slightly sweetness but then the bitterness come on strong. There is a bit of apple in the flavor. The body is medium and the finish is dry. This is an excellent beer although this seems a bit more of an IPA than an American Pale ale.

This is a great beer. Not as good as Dogfish Head (which I consider to be the gold standard of IPAs), but excellent nonetheless. The best (or maybe only) IPA you will ever find in a can. Delicious hops, but extremely short finish. Still, recommended.

glennmastrange (2464) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2008
Can. Moderate aromas of light bread, roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy hop smells of sweet orange, light leather fir the yeast, toffee and a faint berry note in the background. Head is creamy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic and the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation. It finishes lightly astringent. Another surprise from OB out of a can. Both a good drinking beer and a quality sipping beer.

I am no the biggest fan of pale ales, but this one is definately at the top of the heap. Smooth mouthfeel, easyily drinkability. This is a great product, and will make me try oskar blues again. I think the can is wonderful, and the beer tasted very fresh
