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.

A nice looking beer- clear orange color with a medium sized white head. Hoppy aroma that smells kind of citrusy and kind of like the ocean almost, Iím not a huge fan of the aroma but at the same time there isnt anything particularly wrong with it. On the other hand, I think the flavor is highly enjoyable, it starts out hoppy and bitter and becomes very malty, with a little of both in the aftertaste. Some floral notes, some caramel, and even honey. Smooth consistency. Highly drinkable.

Pours an ever so slightly hazed light golden brown with a really nice head. The nose is a big floral bouquet of American hops. Reminiscent of SNPA, but with more sweetness for sure. The mouthfeel is truly exceptional. Perhaps a lot of the percieved creaminess of the palate is due to high CO2 levels, but still there seems to be nice viscosity and Iím very happy. The flavor is as big and bad, if not badder than the aroma. Big sweet malt immediately, light with a slight bit of caramel. Quickly there are some dry grassy grapefruit hops. Thereís a nice creaminess that kicks in before the lingering orange peel bitterness. My one critique of this beer, is a slightly metallic note that seems to linger with the bitterness. It cost this otherwise worthy brew a point on flavor. Now I know that the can doesnít impart the metal taste, I know thereís a vinyl lining, but somehow, some way, an off flavor developed in this beer, and I percieve it as metal. Anyhow, I really think this is a fantastic brew, and I enjoyed it even more than Old Chub, Iíll certainly pick up a sixer next time I travel to a state that carries Oskar Blues.

Nice amber color, very clear with no chill haze. Pours with a white, frothy, though quickly dissipating head, which leaves some lacing on the glass. Thereís only a mild hop aroma (compared to other American Pale Ales), but on tasting it, thereís adequate and pleasant bitterness. Body is medium with some malty sweetness-- just right. Slight bitter and ... soapy aftertaste. Doesnít taste like canned beer. Of course, itís not priced like canned beer, either. Iíd drink it again.

Nice balanced Pale Ale that has a nice honey malt flavor. The hops are in the background and are of the tropical fruit variety. I wish this brew were available in Maryland.

Another great canned beer from Oskar Brewery, and great thanks to Kinz for sending this beer my way. Ruby-orange body with a medium ivory head. Excellent aroma, nice hops and some light salty fruits. Taste is very nice, sweet hops with some light malts. Sweet ending.

I finally got around to trying this, and now Iím sorry I didnít sooner - huge, bright, fruity nose loaded with hops - nice and crisp, but still a full mouthfeel - biting hops up front, followed by loads of dried herbs and a strong, buttery character - Iím very glad I found this beer in time for summer - I plan on shoving it in peoples gullets at every BBQ I attend.

Thanks to StewardofGondor for this delicious beer! Great-looking, lush, foamy head over a golden orange. Fruity, crispy-hoppy aroma - very refreshing. Herbal qualties - floral with some vanilla bean. A nice American Pale Ale - sweet, but not syrupy at all. I canít wait to buy some more!

Poured from the can. Bright copper color with a big pillowy white head. Lively hoppy aroma, earthy pine notes. RIch medium body, with a good balance of chewy malts and sticky pine finish. A lively cross between a British and American pale ale, effortlessly drinkable and delightfully tasty.

This is a beautiful balance of malt and hops. Its on the heavy side for an APA, but if youíre up for it- you will not be disappointed. Itís absolutely wonderful. When uneducated beer drinkers want to know how to differentiate malt and hop flavors- I tell them Daleís answers all. As a homebrewer, I strive to find such a flavorful balance. My favorite beer.

Orange/copper color. Creamy head which stuck around for the duration of the drink, settling on the bootom of the glass and leaving stripes of lacing. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. Flavor is citrusy, juicy and very hoppy for an APA. Delicious hoppy spiciness on the finish. Love it. My favorite "session" beer. Unfortunately, I think the secret may be out by now, and I worry that the inventory will be depleted.
