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 canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís 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.

Madium citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange with a large white head. Lots of carbonation. Starts mild ends with a moderate citrus hop bite. A little on the watery side.

by far one of the better canned beers iíve ever had. some weird creamy mouthfeel to it that would be better without the slight metallic twinge. flavors of orange, LOTS of hops, and some roasted malt and biscuit malt. some carmel and grapefruit.

12oz can. The opportunity to drink a quality beer out of the can was too much for me so I drank the majority of this from the can, cold. For rating purposes I poured a bit into a glass. Pours a bright copper color with a medium white head. Decent lacing. Smells hoppy but thereís a touch of something unpleasant in there. Canít put my finger on it. Thankfully it doesnít translate to the taste. Tastes hoppy, smooth, incredibly well-balanced, crisp and refreshing. This is about the definition of an everyday pale ale. I could drink this all the time.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2007
Draught at Oliver twist, Stockholm. pours out in a clear amber colour with a rich creamy white foam. Nice grapefruity hop aroma with touches of flowers, honey, all-spice and caramel. dryish hoppy flavour of grapefruit and lemon-rind with subtle notes of caramel. Bitter grapefruity finish. A hoppy and tasty take of the style.

Amber pour. Similar creamy head that is in Gordon. Aroma is some herbal soapy hops and molasses sugar. Very drinkable. The hops donít hit you like youíd expect, but then again, this is a pale ale and not an IPA. Very well balanced. This might fall slightly behind SNPA, but it is still very solid for the style.

Nice drinkable beer that has a wonderful balance of hops and malts. Pours with an off-white head.

Loved drinking a good beer out of a can. Good amount of hops without going crazy and manage to get a smooth finish. I never poured to see the color or smell the aroma, because its out of a can - and that should shape the experience, I think.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 over the years this has gone from being enjoyable to ho-hum to terrible, sometimes within months. itís not my tastes, really. this beer is made so inconsistently that some batches are nothing by fusel alcohol, solvent and metal. OB tends to make these beers under-fermented and raw-tasting; sweet, chewy, boozy with astringent hops. garbage craft beer in a can for your convenience. 2.5 to 3.2 range.

Thick frothy pale colored head. Ringy lacing. Crystal clear pale amber. Smells of hops, malt, caramel, honey, alfalfa, and sea water. Canít put my finger on the specific flavors, but damn fine none the less. Starts dry, finishes wet. Interresting. I loved it.
