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.

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!

fonefan (38495) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2007
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)

CRUNCH! This beer oozes hop aroma, hop flavor, hop feel, and hop finish. Big billowy head, orangish color. Lots of floral aroma, TONS of hop flavors. Strong. This is what I like my APA, IPA, or IIPA to be like!

Bright clearish orange. Soft starchy topping of off-white lumpy foam adorns the crown with steady staying power and levels off leaving tall hills along the sides as it collars. Patchy, big blotchy lacing sticks all over the place. Nice looking ale! Dullish pale pine and old orange skins poof up the air quite well along with partially toastyness and grapefruit scraps. Big taster with tenderly paled and toasted malt making its way across the palate quickly, letting you know you’re drinking something with some guts to it. Slender pine sap and soft eager dryness floats about while touching and flinting notes of all kinds of wonderful hop notes of grapefruit pith, lemon and orange peel, and resiny pine oils. Broad and lasting with a remarkablely easy finish within its dryness and bitterness. Holds a very high standard to what a solid Pale Ale ought to be like. Solid, affectionate body of medium/fullish girth. Loads of malt toasting and pale-izing things up with a crunchy edge of bite and carbonation allowing the finish to sneak by with an ease of slightly parching hoppy bitterness and citric pithy, peel, oilyness. Toasted dryness returns and has a nice complexing tone in the finish mixing with the citrus notes; which lasts impressionably well. A solid Pale; and in a can even!? Nice...
