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.

Draft for pint night at Greenleafe cafe. Reddish amber with ample slightly off-white head. Very fruity hop aroma follows through in the flavor. Malty backbone is not evident but clearly balances the beer extremely well. No lingering bitterness

Amber colored to almost red in color with nice foamy head. The smell wafts into our nose with hops, grass, malt. Good balance there. Smooth crisp taste. Superb feel at the back of the mouth.

can. outstanding APA!!! pours a nice clear copper with a 1/4" white head which slims down a bit, but lasts throughout. great pine and earth hop aromas... medium body with a bit of cream, caramel and solid bitterness... especially on the finish. very clean and well balanced. The malts shine through quite well... Oskar Blues knows how to make some damn good beer... and canning it is brilliant.

On draft @ redlight. Pours amber with a nice white head. Strong citrus and pine hop aroma. Sharp citrus hop lead-in, rides on a solid malt backbone. Nice bitter finish. Very drinkable.

kidmartinek (4664) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Copper beer, lasting 2 inch, thick, white head. Floral bouquet aroma of delicious hops. Naturally lush, hoppy, sweet flavor. Very clean. Very delicious. Medium light, excellent palate. Smooth taste, finish, and a drinkablility that Adolphus Busch dreamed about. Finally a real beer, and a damn good one at that, that we can take down the river, and all those other places where you prefer cans over bottles. To sum it up in 12 words, this beer is the beer that other brewers have wet dreams about. Oh, and the lacing is superb, but drink it from the can. I just had to pour this one out to do it proper rating justice. You’re damn right, fun in the great outdoors calls for a great beer, and with Dale’s we finally have one. Worth every penny and then some. Overall impression of 20 for having the balls to produce such a *W i L D** and great product and puT iT iN a cAN!!!

daninferior (4) - USA - MAY 10, 2008 does not count
pours and smells really nice, lots of head, nice hoppy aroma, actually smells better than it tastes, not bad for a can beer, kinda creamy for a pale ale, mild hop attributes, nothing to aggressive

Can @ home. Pours in golden and produces a nice off white head. The aroma is hoppy but malts are present too. Th flavor is nice with floral hops nicely balanced by this beer’s malt backbone. Finish is hoppy and slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium with a nice amount of carbonation. Highly drinkable. This beer’s strength is its balance. This is a sure fire winner anytime and a wonderful example of what an excellent APA can be. Really nice!

Pours a dark amber color with white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma with noce malt balance. Very quaffable beer with a perfect balance of malts and hops. Very hoppy for a pale ale. Excellent!
