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.

@ Röhällavägen. Can (355 ml) from Systembolaget (24:-). Hoppy and quite fruity, sweet, caramel, grapefruit and pine needles, bitter, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and hoppy.

Can @ #h-J14, 20/06/14. Pours a deep orange with a good-sized, white head. Aroma is citrusy with a light touch of grapefruit. Taste is rather bland. Citrus, grapefruit and caramel are present, but fairly mild. Fairly full and well-carbonated. Underwhelming.

Burk från systembolaget. Oerhört välbalanserad. Heter pale ale men drar åt ipahållet, dock inte fullt ut. Perfekt sommaröl, mycket imponerande.

It has a very nice orange amber color with good clarity and a thin white head. The head fades quickly leaving just a ring of bubbles on top and very little spotty lacing that slowly slides down the sides of the glass. The aroma has lovely aromatic hops with hints of citrus and mild pine notes. Under that there are light toasted and bready malt notes. The flavor has a good malt base with a mildly sweet caramel and buttery toasted bread character that is balanced with a pleasant flavor and bitterness from the hops. Hop flavors include mild resin and citrus (grapefruit/lemon) notes. Its finish has a nice bitterness that slowly fades off the tongue. Its light to medium bodied with active carbonation that tickles the tongue.

A very good pale ale, had this many times. Very consistent, lots of pine and some citrus fruit on the nose upfront, with just enough malt on the finish. Very good.

Too much like an IPA, very bitter, but good smell and taste improves with temperature...or deadened taste buds...x2

Color is nice a dark golden, small cream colored head. Aroma is hops, some grapefruit, quite a bit orange, a lot more hops than malt. Taste is way more hops than malt, but It’s got a bit of a tinny flavor, maybe from the can? Drinking this on 06/16, and it was canned on 01/31, maybe that’s not super fresh for this? I don’t know. There’s definitely a bit of an off-flavor there. An ok pale ale. Not my favorite offering from Oskar blues.

It’s good. Nothing crazy here. A hoppy pale ale. I’d say more hoppy than SN Pale ale but not quite as hoppy as your average IPA’s. It tastes fine. I was actually really excited about this one and it wasn’t all that crazy. It’s good don’t get me wrong. It has a nice hoppy aroma, great bitterness but something was missing I don’t really know what.

Pours a clear orange amber with small white head which sticks around. Smell is slightly floral hop, slightly grassy and orangey resin. Taste is wonderful, as others have said very strong malt profile sweetness, a bit of cereal, piney resin sweetness with orange peel and a refreshing bitterness. My can was slightly cooled but it still had a bit taste! Yummy yummy!
