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.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Canned. Poured into pint glass, mild aromas of hops, clear and orange in color. Good straight up pale ale, some malty flavors. I enjoy that some good beers are now available from a can. 1/10/12: upped from 3.6 to 4.0. This has become like a quintessential Pale Ale. I have blown many of my friends minds by pouring this into a glass to erode their canned conception. It is one of the bigger Pale Ales within my normal reach. Great beer.

Pours copper with off white head. Nice citrus hops aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Easy drinking APA with nice balance of malt and hops. Good beer.

Dale’s Pale Ale has an air of backwoods drinkin’, but it ain’t no can of Bud or bottle of moonshine. This is a top shelf pale ale, and if it weren’t for the price tag, I’d be fooled. A deep orange and amber color, a thin fuzzy head and it has all the looks of a pale ale. What I don’t find is a grapefruity hop bomb. The aroma stresses the scent of grains, deep and pungent, with wheat favoritism and the classic smell of baguettes, oats and the general impression of a bread basket. Yes, the taste is bitter, but 1) the bitterness dissipates quickly after the first sip and 2) It’s not mouth puckering grapefruit. I LOATH that. Smooth, filling, roasted and bready flavors, with a subdued hoppy after-twang, this is a fantastic and very portable can of beer. Easy drinking.

One of the nicest looking APA’s I’ve had a pillowy offwhite head that had awesome lacing and great staying power. Smell is resiny hops with a good citrus note and some ruby grapefruit also, with a little malt presence. Taste is very nice. Good sweet citrus taste with some grapefruit and a mice malts presence too it. A very good APA, I don’t after drinking a couple Oskar Blues out of can I am starting to really like the canning idea.

Can and tap. As far as the so-called American Pale goes...heh, to me, THIS is a Pale! Not thinned out and watery like most, Dale’s brings a huge malt presence up front and then just pushes a slightly unbalanced (in a good way of course) flushes of bitter hops all over the palate. Perfect for camping as it’s not too heavy in ABV, and its compactable! This is one of my summer favorites!

Canned, nice pour copper/amber color. Very nice floral hoppy aroma. Taste is much better than I expected(don’t judge a book by it’s cover!), very hoppy, not too bitter, definite notes of citrus, almost grapefruit. Aftertaste was a little strong(which can be good or bad, depending on your perspective), but the can I had was pretty warm.

12 oz. can. Pours a golden-copper color with a two-finger creamy head. A lot of biscuit in the aroma punctuated with citrus and floral hops. Flavor has tangy hops up front followed by strong malt leading into a bitter hop finish. Very balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth but fairly heavy - possibly the only impediment for this being a stellar session beer. Now, if only Oskar Blues was to be had in Michigan...

Very impressed with this brew. On Tap at Hamiltons in SD CA. Nice smooth texture, has a weight to it. Smooth balanced finish. Very easy to drink. Minerals, and more malt than hop. Slightly hoppy nose. Subtle complexity. Really to eash to drink.

beautiful herbal tea orange pour loaded with tiny bubbles, small white head. Caramel and grapefruit aroma. Long lasting hoppy bitterness, a great beer. I love the can and will often crack one as I summit one of the local peaks - you should see the looks of envy on the faces of fellow hikers!
