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.

This is a very fine pale ale in a can! Drinkability right from the can is incredible. Even flow?, this is one of the smoothest hoppy ales out there

Here we go with the famed Dale’s Pale Ale in a can. Pours a clear gold with a ruby touch. Good sized head that sticks around. Nose is very heavy on the hops with a stong sweetness. Flavor is *really* heavy with the hops. It’s almost an overkill to me as it seems to be somewhat imbalanced. Too much in my face, I mean mouth. Just lacks a even flow. It’s like the beer is yelling out, "Hey! I’m a micro brew in a can! Woo hoo!" Feel is a little lighter than I’d want. Overall I have to drop the drinkability down because the hops are too harshly over-pronounced and it lacks balance. Sure, they are "pioneers" of sorts by putting a micro in a can, but that is not enough to save the production. It’s what’s in the can that counts.

12 oz can. Poured a clear orange color. Head was creamy and white. There was some lace left on the glass at the end. Aroma was of buttery caramel, fresh cereal grain, and a hint of vanilla. Slightly sweet on the tongue with only mild hop bitterness. Distinct caramel and pleasant flowery hop flavors. Smooth and medium bodied. Solid beer.

12 oz CAN man, deal with it. And no, the container is not just a gimmick. There are times when we need non-bottled beer and I seriously doubt there is a better brew out there available in a pop-top aluminum "mini-keg." Kinda reminds me of Victory’s IPAs (Hop Hog, Hop Devil). Tons of flavor and almost enough IBUs to make it a regular fridge dwelling IPA at Chez Krispy. Try it, you very well might like it!

Can. Nice aroma of grapefruit and some malt. Flavor is similar but the hop finish is more piney. Good mouthfeel, and the initial malt flavor is soft. Good beer for frequent drinking.

Pours a clear light brown with a lightly yellowish head. Sweet with aromas of caramel malts, nice grapefruity aromas. Full bodied. Medium to low carbonation.Bitter finnish with some caramel notes and a hit of chalk.

Golden. Big, off white head. Aroma of juniper, fruit, flowers, citrus and caramel. What a lovely scent! very nicely balanced. Upon hitting the tongue there’s a soft, malty flavour that turns into a dominating, dry bitterness, though the sweetness of the malt is a close companion in the background. It’s still seems light and is ever so drinkable. Works on mutiple levels and I could easily see myself drinking this as a regular session beer.

Dedollewaitor (14546) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
Can. Slight hazy amber/orange with a fantastic thick white head & good lacings. The aroma is of bitter hops & sweet malts. The mouhfeel is filling. Good hoppiness that lastes throughout. Fruity/flowery & piney with a light malty balance. Soft carbonation. Lasting end. Very nice can of beer!

Helt i top Pale Ale.. Ornage- rød gylden øl med ikke voldsomt kulsyeniveau. Duft og smag af amerikanske humler, og en let sødlig nuance. En meget humlet øl - lige akurat hvad den kan tåle før det bliver for meget. Enkelte karamel noter i duften. Tør og længe varende eftersmag.
