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.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 Can, poured into glass. Big hop aroma and taste. Dry, hoppy, slightly bitter finish. On of the best beers I have ever had out of a can!

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 A pale ale that has flavor. Some citrus or fruit hidden away. Much hops. It had some bitter aftertaste.

Great pale ale; like a Ballantine on steroids. Watch it though, the killer 6.5% sneaks up on you around beer 4 or 5 and makes you start mumbling to yourself and laughing. Don’t play poker while drinking this beer. --The Reverend Steel Johnson

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 Supersaver can (should have bought more than one) I love this pale ale-it has a well hidden and decent alcohol content, a resiny piney grapefruity hoppy flavor that is pleasant and well balanced along with a medium body. This is how canned beer should be.

Not a bad little pale ale. Lacks in big hops flavor, and overall punch. Smells great and has good color. The best thing about Oskar is they don’t skimp, so they fill the can to the top. They sink!

nolankowal (923) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Pours a transparent golden-orange with a pillowy off white head with a tinge of yellow. Aroma of citrus fruits and bready caramel malt...some pine as well. Nice combination of resiny piney hops, some light citrus and bready sweet malt. For a pale ale it has a huge body, everything coats...both malty and sticky with a nice balance between sweet and bitter....more malty sweetness in the front with the bitter tangy hops creeping in midway through the bitter/almost dry finish. Overall a thick and sticky APA that drinks like a heavy IPA...great stuff.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 A hazy, orange amber color with a lacing, sustaining, bone-colored head. Aroma of cotton candy and big American hops that are resiny, piney, and somewhat herbal. The palate is definitely an IPA. Big malt sweetness tempered by a long hit of hop acidity, lots of Munich malt flavor and tons of American hop flavor. This is very tastey.

Marsiblursi (2985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2006
(Can) Pours hazy amber. Fantastic (exotic) fruity, piny, citrusy hop aroma with some malt. Smooth piny and citrusy hop mouthfeel with grassy notes. First all the lovely sweet fruityness and then a not to aggressive bitter hoppyness. Silky, allmost buttery aftertaste with rasiny hints. Small to medium body. A great example of how you can punch out a lot of aromas and flavour from hops.

Beerdedone (2494) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Can sampled at the Newtown Brewfest with Stegosaurus and The Mad Indian. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. The flavor is citrus, sweet pale malts, and moderately bitter.

Slayer85 (1041) - Firenze, ITALY - OCT 31, 2006
Canned. Beautiful red colour. Good citrusy and flowery hoppy aroma. Also in the flavour there are citrusy notes (grapefruit) and generally hops are dominating in this beer. Medium body: Long pleasant and lingering bitter finish. I love American hops.
