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.

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 !?

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 Canned - of course. Pretty good maybe not quite as awesome as its reputation might indicate. Amber, hops etc, well balanced. I like it, don?t get me wrong.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 Pours amber with a slight haze. Fluffy off white head that slowly settles to some becoming islands. Picture esque thick lacing. Nice fresh piney hop aroma with notable hints of mace. Crisp and refreshing beer. well balanced between hops and malt. very nice indeed! This definitely will be with me on my next trip to the beach

Iím really starting to appreciate the little cans this brewer uses. Beautiful amber color with a thick tan head that hangs around seemingly forever. It leaves some really nice lace too. Smells of fresh piney hops and a bit of cinnamon. Very smooth and balanced with a big hop finish. Canít get enough of this stuff.

One of the best APAs Iíve ever tasted. The can trick is no myth. great golden hop aroma with a smooth finish. The feeling of freshness is uncanny. The perfect beer for taking into a concert of a ball game.

From can... Aroma is of sweet caramel malts and citrus hops. Tastes is more or less the same. Bittering hops more evident in the finish. Balanced well, and pretty easy to drink. Good for a picnic, tailgating, and just about anywhere.

Citrus and super hoppy nose. Deep golden, almost honey-like color. Thick long-lasting head. Solid bitterness, balanced by malty sweetness. Was a little heavy, but alcohol cut through. One of, if not the, best American pale ales out there.

Ahh, Daleís... the session ale of choice for hopheads in my little city. Pouring from the can into a glass, I marvel at this brewís frothy head, beneath which a golden amber liquid sits and waits excitedly for its journey into my mouth. But first the aroma... A fresh burst of juicy hoppiness greets the nose, mingling sweet herbal notes with mild citrus qualities. The first sip introduces Daleís delicious malt flavor, remeniscent of a good chocolate chip cookie. A vague metallic taste lingers, although the bold flavors try hard to hide it. As noted by previous reviewers, this pale ale achieves a nearly perfect balance of malts and hops. Each component helps the other one to show off its best characteristics. I think they have great Rocky Mountain water in Lyons as well. I visited the Oskar Blues establishment and had some Daleís from their tap -- amazingly it tasted just like their canned product. (The same cannot be said for most bottled beers, which always have better flavor at the brewery.) Go cans!

Can@Home. Lovely strong floral aroma with a hint of grapefruit. Dark yellow, almost amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, fruity and floral at first but soon rather bitter and grassy. Full, soft mouthfeel. Long lasting finish. Nice balance, not too powerful or overwhelming. Thanks Yngwie!
