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.

Poured from.....CAN?!?! What will the neighbors think? Amazing that I still remember how to open a can. Anyway, copper look with persistent white head. Aroma of hops and more hops. Not as intensely hopped as others, but still packs a punch, with good hop combo and balance. Creamy feel. Solid finish. Excellent.

I was ready to be impressed but this is not a very good beer. Medium body. Aroma is lacking, some hops, but not much of them, and nothing to fill the void. Flavor has simple, one dimensional bitter hops, without any notable herbal or citrus character. Additionally, the hop flavor is far too light. Surprisingly light and not complex at all for a beer rated so highly.

Skinnyviking (7236) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2007
Can. High creamy good looking and long lasting off-white head. Clear amber body. Barley malt aroma with a nice shot of hops. At first it feels fresh and fruity, the fisnish is however pretty nice hoppy. Low carbonated and with a long hops bitter aftertaste.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2007
12 oz. can. Pours a nice golden amber. Thin, bubbly, white head. Aroma of floral hops with a touch of honey. Bittering hopfeel gives way to a bready malt. Ultimately the bitterness lingers for quite some time, though.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2007
Popped the top on the can [the CAN?] and the foam came over the sill like I’d dropped it or something. Wha??? Pours a murky orange-amber with a huge off-white head. Lotsa hops in the nose. Hey......this is pretty good. No. This is very good. Very smooth and drinkable. It’s the packaging that fools you. Nice American Pale Ale.

anders37 (17658) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2007
Can. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a longlasting off-white head. Malty hoppy bitter grapefruit aroma. Sweet malty hoppy bitter flavor with some hints of grapefruit. Sweetish malty finish with s long bitter aftertaste.

pours a hazey amber, with nice off white head (normally i save this for the golf course and drink it out of the can, but for rating..) aroma is mildly malty and hint of citrus and fruit hop. i think there is a slight hint of can... mouthful is a fruity hop with some nutty flavor. has a smooth feel and goes down easy. i love having a great pale ale in a can for those times when bottles just won’t do...

12oz can. I was really surprised at how good this beer was. Granted, I didn’t have any glasses, so I couldn’t really rate its appearance properly. Plus the can is a little metallic-smelling. Anyway, the aroma was strong piney/nutty hops. Flavor was a very solid cascade hoppiness with just enough malt to carry the bitterness. Overall, a very solid beer.

12 oz can. Delish! I haven’t had a beer this tastey in a long time, and never in a can. I’ve heard its the best beer many on this site have had in a can, but this was magnificant. The appearance (large billowing, long-lasting head), aroma (cascade hops), flavors (some more cascade hops along with some sweet crystal malt flavors) are all fantastic. thoughouly enjoyed it.

A dark orange with a nice frothy head and aroma just bursting out of the can. Hop forward with a nice creamy palate, really well done.
