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.

Ok, this beer just blows you away. Its in a can. You expect, ďA pale ale in a can, novel, have to try it, heard the new cans donít create off flavor. Expecting a serviceable pale ale.Ē But this pale ale is great. It closer to great homebrew than any bottled beer I have tried. Great head and lacing. Smooth, substantial mouthfeel. Nice balance hop, alcohol and sweetness. Ten thousand kudos, impressive.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Tap @ Mellow Mushroom Brandon, Fl and can. Pours a clear copper with a one finger offf-white head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light notes of caramel, and tons of citrus, herbal, and light pine hops. Taste is the same as aroma with a very strong but clean bitterness. Medium mouthfeel that finishes slightly sweet. Probably the best can beer in the world.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Amazing hop aroma. The flavor started out a bit hoppy and finished with a sweet malt kick, caramel hints. More or the sweet malty side but still very smoothe brew. Very tasty.

Slobís secret and blind surprise (poured in my absence while returning filtered beer to the municipal water supply), a pallette cleansing cap to the nice run. This one was a dandy, quite enjoyable. Appearance was golden-amber in color with a nice foamy head. Aroma was grapefruits, light pine, it begged a quaff or two. Flavor followed suit, an almost perfect interpretation of the APA/IPA style if I ever had one, very close to along the lines of Stoneís IPA (my far favorite even to-date), crystal malts underneath, strong grapefruits, piney resinous notes alongside it all, full hearty mouthfeel, even grainy, more body than Stoneís IPA, yet a touch less smooth. Probably the best "APA" Iíve had, although Iíd put this down as an IPA and rate it among my top 5 for sure. Thanks, Bert!

Bottle from CaptainCougar. Light piney hop aroma. Faint copper color with a big head. Medium to full palate for the style. Spicey hops up front with light malts throughout. More pine hops in the finish. Solid.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 28, 2007
Pours a cloudy brownish amber wit ha half-inch white head that quickly fades. Pleasant soft malt aroma with some nice big hops. Flavor is classic pale ale: sweet malt shallowly buried under a bitter, tangy citrusy hop character. Slightly on the thin side of medium bodied. Nice lacing. A very good pale ale.
