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.

Crisp brilliant and seemingly tightly filtered this delicioss refreshing beer yields a clean whippy head. Texture is biscuity and with a light gentle sappiness. Very fine.

Can from lescar, sheffield. Rosy amber with lacy white head. Aroma is bready and malty with full and treacley resiny hops. Taste is sweet and bitter in equal measure. Medium carbonation with a nice oily medium body. Very very nice, graphics on the can look garbage though.

Dacrza (598) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2015
DATE TASTED: May 9, 2015... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... OCCASION: settling in after celebrating Willís First Holy Communion... APPEARANCE: a handsome two-thirds pint glass of orange amber clarity and one-third thick, pillowed snow-white mountainous head; lacings are legitimate and thick; ... AROMA: definite malty base to build around; some caramel; some grainy, earthy tones; Centennialís light hops suggest a flower bed...PALATE: a medium-bodied, textured mouthfeel--surprisingly balanced, with ample action at the teeth and the tongue; aftertaste despite its subtle flavors; thick texture with average carbonation... TASTE: some citrus early, but much more floral aspects throughout; again, BIG uncanny balance of malt and hop... OVERALL: at long last, Daleís Pale Ale is in the books, and rewardingly too; unlike many/most modern American pales, this one packs a malty punch that keeps the pitchiness of the hops in check--a beer worth sipping or sessioning...

Can. Pours a clear dark golden producing a medium fluffy head. Grassy aroma with a solid maltyness as well. Hints of citrus, pine and resin. Taste is well-balanced. Light sweet rounded nicely off with a pleasant bitter finish. Highly drinkable, crisp on the palate. Medium-light bodied, avg co2.

ERB92 (503) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2015
Tropical fruits, malts, resin, bread and herbs in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium + bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall quite a nice refreshing APA, but would perhaps like a little bit more fruit sweetness.
