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 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.

Orange-ish amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, mild floral hops and caramel. Taste is more of the same wrapped up in a somewhat sticky body that finishes mildly bitter with a little pine mixed in.

Had on tap. Definitely a light copper color. Strong hoppy odor, but can taste fruity and slightly sweet while drinking. Finishes nicely with no alcohol after taste.

Clear copper colored pour with a loose, one finger off-white head. A lot of sticky lacing going on. Crisp, floral nose, some light pine and citrus. Flavor has a sweet caramel and malty base, maybe just a little salty, grapefruit with a sharp piney resin, lemon pith and peel...and I could almost swear to a touch of buttery diacetyl. Finishes with a toffee sweetness with a nice throat clenching bite. Medium thick body. Super stuff.

Pours thin copper with smallish head, but its there. Can? wow. ok. Sticky caramel notes and thick raisiny aromas smash up front but are subdued by a citrus peel and piney scent which presents itself more forcefully in the flavor. Deep sugared malts punctuate themselves into a lingering but muted hop bitterness. wow. very tasty. I am super happy with this one.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
Can courtesy of Matt7215, thanks man! Deep orange/amber pour with a two finger froth of eggshell foam. Good structured lace leaves line after line of rings. This pale shows fresh pine and citric hops in the nose, with bread crust and caramel, followed by cotton candy. The taste is great. It is quite hop forward, with sharp piney hops, with citrus rind, that leads into an earthy caramel malt., and finishes with a candy like sweetness that is only balanced with the northern brewer. This beer suffers from extreme balance, and is damn fine! Excellent craftsmanship. Thanks for the can and the opportunity to try this Matt!

Canned from BevMo. Dark amber/golden in color. Somewhat sweet and hoppy aroma. Hops and malts up front. A little bit of breadiness. Good solid APA. Nice balance with a good amount of bitterness.

Canned beer can get no better! Pours a nice copper color. A nice head dissipates to fine lace around the top of the beer. The hoppy taste is just right! A good session beer!
