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.

Can pours a hazy orange amber with a fairly coarse beige head. Moderate malty and slightly soapy hop aroma. Big hoppy flavor. Rather soapy and piney. Plenty of psudeu micro IPAs can’t keep up with this.

Love the idea of a quality beer in a can. Great pale ale - smells of cream and cascade hops. Great, fresh hop flavor - like spring water with hop, cream and a touch of malt. Fresh hop in the aftertaste - quite bitter and dry. The can is a great choice - it tastes like a fresh from the brewery APA. Very fresh tasting.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Pours a clear copper color with a two inch head into the lager glass. A floral hoppy nose with some earthy notes. The flavor was piney with a solid malt backbone. Earthy, dry and bitter finish. Very drinkable and refreshing pale ale.

Medium offwhite lasting head. Amber body. Powerful hoppy mango aroma with malty notes. Firm dry-sweetish taste of resiny hoppy mango and malts. Dry medicinal resiny malty aftertaste. Very nice! An excellent beer! (0.355l can from Charlene, shared on the bus to RBNAG’07.)

Surly it is the best can beer I have tasted yet! A great cold weather drinker with a full but not too heavy flavor. I tried this for the first time last night and loved it. I’m a big fan of IPAs and other hoppy beers, and this is the bees knees. I’m glad it has gone national, so we can enjoy it here on the East coast!

Can. Clear medium orange amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy hoppy, grapefruit, moderate malty, caramel. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy heavy bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. "My best can-beer" ;o)) (121007)
