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.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Can. 12 fl. oz. A clear, amber color with small, off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel. Medium body with a creamy texture and a long, lingering finish that seems to stick to the roof of your mouth. Flavor is a nice balance of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Very drinkable and very good.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAY 31, 2007
A big thanks to theisti for this can. If I could get this in Kansas City, it would be a staple in my fridge. It pours a flat, light brown with a large, frothy, off-white head that diminishes with time. The aroma is all hops, citric and lightly floral. The mouthfeel is light and creamy with a bitter finish. The flavor is dominated by the hops without smacking you in the head. The front is a serious hop hit with a sweet malty middle following. A dry citric-hop kick finishes things off. A very flavorful and drinkable beer. If only all canned beer could taste like this...

TURDFERGUSON (4017) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Can. Pours a clear orange that is dark around the edges. Retains a thin white head. Nose is hops, sugary candy malts. Flavor is crisp and refreshing--I could drink this all night. Nothing really stands out other than the fact that this is a very drinkable pale ale. I wouldnt call it an ipa, but its a fabulous pale ale. The first several times I had this I didnít care for it (I was drinking it out the can then), but here I am on my 3rd can and I canít stop. Well done.

Stine (1649) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Pours a clear shade of burnt orange. Retains a very thin layer of foam. Aromas of almond, sugared grapefruit, wet leaves. Flavor is crisp and clear. Fresh grapefruit juice and a hint of garlic rubbed artichoke. Quenching. Palate is lively while somewhat earthy, leaving just the right sediment of bitterness to soak the mouth. No deviances at all. One of the best straightforward renditions.

Aurelius (4637) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Big, rushing cascade of foam in a tall pilsener glass, bad can, dark-tinged brown-gold beer. Big, butternut caramel fruity aroma. Prominent orange/grapefruit flavors, some sugary and woody tones. Goes a bit vacant in the middle before a dusty, citrus finish.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Clear copper-gold pour with a small off-white head and good lacing. Lots of grapefruit, honey and earthy malt. Medium body with a sort of chewiness to it and a soft carbonation. This is easily the tastiest beer Iíve ever had in a can.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Err, I guess this is due for a rerate. I had this on tap at David Copperfields in NYC but I think the keg was quite old. There was little hop aroma to be found, and though it had a nicely malty body, it was quite weird without any kind of hop balance.

RealAleDave (45) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Full copper-red. Very fine beige head sticks around throughout leaving nice lacing. Nose is bready, caramel malt with a good dose of earthy, slightly citric hops. The toffee-ish notes are more than Iíd prefer, but certainly within style. Medium in the mouth with the caramel malts leading the way. Not as sweet as the nose would lead one to believe (thankfully), but still too much for me. Very reminiscent of New Glarusí Hearty Hop. Could use more bitterness to balance the malt, but the finish is still decently long. Mouthfeel is fine, with carbonation on the higher end of the scale, which helps cut through the maltiness. Drinkable, but just not my preferred expression of the style. Can 5 of a six pack.
