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.

Can. Moderate aromas of light bread, roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy hop smells of sweet orange, light leather fir the yeast, toffee and a faint berry note in the background. Head is creamy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic and the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation. It finishes lightly astringent. Another surprise from OB out of a can. Both a good drinking beer and a quality sipping beer.

I am no the biggest fan of pale ales, but this one is definately at the top of the heap. Smooth mouthfeel, easyily drinkability. This is a great product, and will make me try oskar blues again. I think the can is wonderful, and the beer tasted very fresh

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 5, 2008
355 ml can, shared with my neighbour Kjetil. 1/3 of the can on table and floor before I reached the glass. Hazy amber color, off-white head. Aroma is ok hops. Flavor is hops and sweet malt, but most of all watery. Boring, a big disappointment. Must be something wrong with this can - maybe I will re-rate it one day.

Pours a cloudy brown with a nice thick head. hops on the nose along with citrus. Smooth hops oon the palate with just a touch of too much bitterness for my liking. Overall a good beer for the style.

Pours with a slightly cloudy amber-orange body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. Itís slightly bitter with an underlying sweetness, a touch of hops and a little mustiness. Medium bodied and smooth.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2008
Can. Pours a deep coppery brown with good sized white head. Aroma is big time floral hops. Taste is smooth and bitter with long flavorful hop finish. I think the ratings here (including mine) are influenced by the novelty of having a good beer in a can.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Copper color with thick foamy head, lacing, and lots of bubbles. Fruity and earthy hop aromas. Nice, dry, robust malt, quaffable, and balanced. Good stuff. Draft at zekes even better. Full bodied and balanced. One of those beers that really has the potential to hit the spot.

A go-to brew of mine for a while now. Nice, fluffy head. Cloudy amber color. Spicy, floral hop aroma. Taste is solid: perfectly bitter. Smooth, medium body. A great beer in a can? Yes please.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 APA from a can?! well i tasted it on draft at barleys in greenville and it was quite good. color was light amber with no lacing. aroma is citrusy with orange and grapefruit, hints of pine with some floral notes as well. flavor was nicely balanced with hoppy bitterness taking the lead and malty sweetness in the finish. mouthfeel is medium bodied and the beer lingers with sweetness. overall, quite good if you can get over drinking it from a can.
