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.

Can. Clean and copper coloured with a nice creamy off-white head. Aromas of fruity hops and a nice crispy and bitter taste.

Without a doubt the best beer Iíve ever had in a can. Vibrant burnt orange liquid exudes a 1/2 inch meringue head. The aroma exhibits tall douglas fir and citrus notes. The flavor is dominated by aggressive hop bitterness that lasts long after the last sip. Bottling this one might be beneficial as I sensed tin when first tasted. After additional drinks, my taste buds were overwhelmed and that impression diminished. Very good beer...

Can from Wine Cellar. Resiny aromas. Clear amber color with a very impressive tan/beige head. Full bodied with very creamy carbonation. Flavor is more citrus grapefruit over evergreen, with a backdrop of roasted caramel. Still, this is all about the hop. Itís not balanced. Itís an IPA in disguise. Maybe an IIPA in disguise, based on the bitterness. Evergreen seems to return in the finish. Everyone should have one of these once in awhile just to get back to roots. Whoo. Itís not in the same class as the best, complex ales, but it is a winner in the APA class.

can, of course. pours a brilliantly clear orange amber with a thick cream colored head that fades slowly and laces abundantly. big citrus floral hop nose, with sorts of candied pineapple and orange blossom dominating. sweet breadlike malts fill in the background, but they are definitely in the background. they come out quite a bit more in the taste, creating what has come to be my prototypical american pale ale taste: lightly sweet bready and nutty malts, with a large, possibly dominating (in this, theyíre about equal) pnw hop tone. in this case, itís a pineapple, grapefruit, and orange citrus note, and it seems to be quite heavily dry-hopped. dashed enjoyable, i must say. seems to be fairly thick of body for a pale ale, which puts it right in the ipa range, and a nice creamy and resinous mouthfeel. great finish with light sweetness and a complementing bitterness. the carbonation also serves to complement the entire palate. this is really a fantastic apa, neck and neck with great lakes burning river, and almost at the level of alpha king. quite solid.

12 oz. Can courtesy of Naka. Pours orange-amber with small white head that dissipates to a small rim. Nose is quite hoppy, citrus and pine with a touch of caramel and honey. It starts with a large hop presence, earthy and floral notes combining as a sticky hop flavor, bleeding into a prominent bitter that is balanced by a smooth caramel and biscuit malt profile. Mouthfeel is odd, rather thick at the beginning but trailing off into a moderately watery finish. This is a good, drinkable American Pale Ale. Definitely a keeper.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2008
355 ml can. Dark golden apricot colour. Hazy, and seems to be holding a lot of hops. Tall light beige head that clings to the glass. Slightly metallic rich hop aroma. Strong nutty aroma with a strong hop backing. Crisp carbonation and a rounded, but strong hop bitterness that lasts all the way through.

Pours slightly hazy orange color with off white head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. Taste slighlt sweet with lots of hops. Very refreshing, I could drink this every day. Lots of flavor without being too heavy. Light to medium body with creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. This is a great beer to introduce people to craft beers. Iíll be keeping some of these at all tiomes.

This is a great tasting beer. I suppose Daleís is to me what Bud is to the average beer drinking man. It tastes great, is refreshing and you can bring it on the boat. I could drink this all day in the summer.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Wow! I canít believe this comes in a can. And thatís part of what makes it even better. Well-hopped, seemed like dominant cascade hops. Great flavor, sticky, bitter, but not too heavy, perfect for playing croquet in the hot sun.
