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.

Straight from can. Taste is bitter and lightly sweet. Slightly metallic. Aromas of grassy hops. Drinks pretty good on a boat.

Had from can on several occasions, also draft at BD Brum 8/5/14. Pours clear burnished gold/orange, white head lasts reasonably. Big citrus and resinous hop aroma, plus some notes of caramel malt and bread. Tastes moderate sweet pale and light caramel malt, pretty heft bitterness, lots of resinous, floral and orange grapefruit hop character. Medium body, oily, moderate carb, long bitter finish. Textbook, for me. Obviously this is big for an APA but it has a great balance of malt so it’s not as hoppy as an IPA.

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, Bottledog (£ 4), 355 ml purk. Mesiselt kuldne toon, väga klaar ja läbipaistev. Vahtu ülemäära ei teki, kuid on korralik, kohev, püsiv, kleepuv. Aroomis polegi nagu mingit lubatud ja eeldatud tsitruselist humalapommi, on hoopis väga nõrk aroomipojukene, millest enamus linnastest tulenev karamellisus-mesisus, vast natuke männisust. Ka soojenedes jääb nõrgaks, muutudes küll veidi teravaks-vürtsikaks, karamellikusest saab rohkem lilleline-troopiline magus. Juues üpris ergas, keskmiku kehaga, mullisust omajagu, kuid mitte liialt, vaiguselt kleepjas (väga!), tihke, pähkline, karamelliselt magusakas, ja... meenutab varem proovitud (väheseid) USA laagereid... Nii lõhn kui maitse muutuvad soojenedes mitmeplaanilisemaks, mis mõnes mõttes nagu päästab, kuid kokkuvõttes on siin siiski rohkem linnaseid kui humalaid tunda. Greibisest mõrksusest saab kuskil kurgu lõpus õieti aimu alles pärast jupp aega maitsmist kui purk juba pooltühi. Ootasin midagi täiesti teistsugust. Vast peaks millalgi uuesti proovima, siis juba distractivate üllatusmomentideta. Aga tõesti, PALE see nüüd minu arust küll mingil moel pole, ei välimuselt, aroomilt, maitsepaletilt... Äkki oli seekord tegu liiga vana purgiga vms.

Burk från systembolaget. Kopparfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doft av citrusfrukt, barr och bröd. Maltig smak med viss fruktighet, sötma och hö. Härlig beska och tryck i truten

Pours a clear golden color with a shade of amber. Earthy hops aroma. Very smooth masculine IPA with a slight metallic tang to it. Excellent beer...one of my go-to’s.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a nice golden colour. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Taste is much the same with some maltiness and little alcohol. Great tasting beer drinks like an IPA though. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

The beer pours a very clear orange color with a large white head. The aroma blends resin and citrus hops with some bready malts, and the initial flavor is mildly bitter but very well balanced with a slight sourness and touch of sweetness, which gives way to an aftertaste full of grassy hop flavor. The palate fuses a sticky texture, soft carbonation that has a sharp bite, and a medium body.
