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.

Can. Amber with huge head, brilliant clarity. Extremely floral and piney aroma, thereís some grapefruit too and behind all the hop aroma some caramel aroma too. The bitter, hoppy flavour is well balanced with a malty backbone, VERY good. Lowere carbonation than other american ales, which really suits the beer.

Skyview grabbed some of these from Hudson to share. Iím more disappointed with this beer now that I see the style. I thought it was a decent pale ale. Lots sweet carmel malts and candy sugar with a faint bitter finish. I didnít get much hops at all...

Yeah, thanks to slob for the skinny on this beauty. Very similar to SNPA in initial hop flavor and creamier character in body but more robust and a more subdued and rounded hop finish. Wow, that was a nice run-on sentence. Glad I bought the six pack for todays project lubrication. The best beer in a can I have ever had.

Iíve read that this was voted "Best canned beer in America." Picked up a six-pack at Chicones in Hudson, WI. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a decent white head that slowly dissolves to a film and white ring. Aroma of caramel malt, plenty of citrus zest, some dry herbal spice, and light honey. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors or grapefruit, caramel and lime zest. Finish has a lingering bitterness with a dry grapefruit aftertaste. I was expecting more from all the "hype" but turns out to be a good hoppy pale ale.

Poured from.....CAN?!?! What will the neighbors think? Amazing that I still remember how to open a can. Anyway, copper look with persistent white head. Aroma of hops and more hops. Not as intensely hopped as others, but still packs a punch, with good hop combo and balance. Creamy feel. Solid finish. Excellent.

I was ready to be impressed but this is not a very good beer. Medium body. Aroma is lacking, some hops, but not much of them, and nothing to fill the void. Flavor has simple, one dimensional bitter hops, without any notable herbal or citrus character. Additionally, the hop flavor is far too light. Surprisingly light and not complex at all for a beer rated so highly.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2007
Can. High creamy good looking and long lasting off-white head. Clear amber body. Barley malt aroma with a nice shot of hops. At first it feels fresh and fruity, the fisnish is however pretty nice hoppy. Low carbonated and with a long hops bitter aftertaste.

12 oz. can. Pours a nice golden amber. Thin, bubbly, white head. Aroma of floral hops with a touch of honey. Bittering hopfeel gives way to a bready malt. Ultimately the bitterness lingers for quite some time, though.

Popped the top on the can [the CAN?] and the foam came over the sill like Iíd dropped it or something. Wha??? Pours a murky orange-amber with a huge off-white head. Lotsa hops in the nose. Hey......this is pretty good. No. This is very good. Very smooth and drinkable. Itís the packaging that fools you. Nice American Pale Ale.
