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.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2006 Fresh, robust hop nose - a little sweet malt to balance. Hop candy! After way too many "off" bottles of SNPA lately, this is my new low-priced keep-in-fridge hop fix.

Translucent, magnifying and polished brass in color with a booming, dense, frothy orange cream head reaching one-inch high in the tulip. Meringue and sugar crusted orange cereal begin the aromatic sequence, followed by a sweet rustic c-hop agenda, orange-pina-grapefruit smoothies and puce sugar cane. The puce hoppiness bears the brunt of a piney-nectar flavor infatuation while harvesting ruby red grapefruit that’s two days past its prime. Buttery substitute slides down orange blossom muffins, with a top crusted with rock candi sugar and hop soot. Oily, bitter pricks and a hint of steel as it fades. The caramel toffee tune-up gives it a husky dominion. Spicy orange toffee, tropical oatmeal and livening bitter sweet hop derivatives bring us to a close.

zach8270 (3352) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2006
(can - 12 oz) Copperish color with a thick tan head. Aroma is loaded with citrus and hops. I was surprised how much hop aroma could come from a canned beer. Flavor is very hoppy at the beginning with some citrus flavors (grapefruit and date) in the middle and a bitter and crisp hop finish. Very nice and very smooth.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2006 Can. Pours copper with a pretty good-sized white head. Aroma of pine, a bit of grapefruit, and some fruity malt. Taste is similar, with a bit more grapefruit and sweet fruit, and a hint of caramel. Finish is a bit more grapefruity and astringent. Well balanced; the bittering and flavoring hops complement the fruity and sweet malt backbone nicely. And of course, it’s in a can.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2009 Thanks to Antzman for the can. I owe you one! - Pours orangish golden, lightly hazy with a thin mostly receding off-white head. Notes of sweet citrus, bright hops, pine, toffee, and toasted pale malt. Medium bodied and resinous with lively carbonation. Excellence in a can.

thornecb (4288) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2007 Pours deep amber into a shaker. Bright white micro-bubble head leaves significant lacing as it slowly recedes. Pine, grass and citrus notes. Upfront sweet caramel, creamy bodied, with a lasting slight grapefruit alcohol finish. Very well balanced, but leans a little too sweet. Tastes great straight from the can.

Can from Super Saver. Wow, this one is a nice surprise. Coppery colored with aromas of big hops, some fruit, and caramel malts. The flavor is hoppy with a lot of fruit throughout. Smooth, well balanced palate.

"Gonzo BEER in a can!" Golden amber with moderate to high carbonation. Strong fruit aroma, lime and raspberry. Starts mildly sweet then sweeter with fruity hop finishing smooth and tasty. The novelty of the can makes it better, somehow.

From a can. Very strong maltyness and hops that still stay balanced in their fight for dominance. Good looking orangy color with large head and lacing.
