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.

Gotta be the best APA you can get in a can. Pours a huge amount of froth. Copper, with a slight haze. Dark for style. Huge citrus aroma - grapefruit and pine (natch). Taste malty/biscuits with the American hop smash to the mouth. Very good overall.

Can. Pours a clear, copper amber with a lacy off-white head. The aroma is flowery, with some fruit and oranges. Medium body, slighlty creamy with medium carbonation. The taste starts mildly sweet with caramel, fruit and some roasty malt. Grapefruit and pine finish that sort of drifts into IPA land.

12-oz can, courtesy BitBucket. Great orange amber body with a dirty white head, streams of carb. Nice refreshing--but still substantial--body. Great citrusy hops on the nose and the finish, with some sweet crystal malt backbone. Beautifully made beer, whether youíre intrigued by the relative novelty of the can or not. Some day Iíll think of a reason to try one straight from the can.

Holy Cow! A great beer from a can! A nice golden brown coor, with a decent head. Has a very hoppy aroma and taste, the taste that comes from using Cascade hops. Also has a malty taste. Definitely will be getting this one again.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006
12oz can via trade with BŁck Dich! - Thanks Jordan! - Pours amber and pretty clear.with a fair offwhite head. Aromas of grapefruit and floral hops. Flavor is hoppy with lots of citrus notes and some grains and caramel malts beneath it. Pretty chewy and definitely quite drinkable on the palate. I like this alot and found it to be a fantastic pale ale. So much for hating beer in a can.

Can. Pours a clear, bright copper body with a medium, foamy off-white head and lacing. The aroma is a big surprise - it’s just great that this stuff comes in a can! Lots of sticky and resinous orange fruity hops. Also some mild sweet caramel. Wonderfully bitter and chewy with those aforementioned orange and grapefruit hops. The crystal makes a significant contribution too. This is tasty stuff that I could easily drink CAN after CAN of. Terrific. Purchased at Premier Gourmet, Buffalo in June of 2006.

A nice looking beer- clear orange color with a medium sized white head. Hoppy aroma that smells kind of citrusy and kind of like the ocean almost, Iím not a huge fan of the aroma but at the same time there isnt anything particularly wrong with it. On the other hand, I think the flavor is highly enjoyable, it starts out hoppy and bitter and becomes very malty, with a little of both in the aftertaste. Some floral notes, some caramel, and even honey. Smooth consistency. Highly drinkable.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Pours an ever so slightly hazed light golden brown with a really nice head. The nose is a big floral bouquet of American hops. Reminiscent of SNPA, but with more sweetness for sure. The mouthfeel is truly exceptional. Perhaps a lot of the percieved creaminess of the palate is due to high CO2 levels, but still there seems to be nice viscosity and Iím very happy. The flavor is as big and bad, if not badder than the aroma. Big sweet malt immediately, light with a slight bit of caramel. Quickly there are some dry grassy grapefruit hops. Thereís a nice creaminess that kicks in before the lingering orange peel bitterness. My one critique of this beer, is a slightly metallic note that seems to linger with the bitterness. It cost this otherwise worthy brew a point on flavor. Now I know that the can doesnít impart the metal taste, I know thereís a vinyl lining, but somehow, some way, an off flavor developed in this beer, and I percieve it as metal. Anyhow, I really think this is a fantastic brew, and I enjoyed it even more than Old Chub, Iíll certainly pick up a sixer next time I travel to a state that carries Oskar Blues.

Nice amber color, very clear with no chill haze. Pours with a white, frothy, though quickly dissipating head, which leaves some lacing on the glass. Thereís only a mild hop aroma (compared to other American Pale Ales), but on tasting it, thereís adequate and pleasant bitterness. Body is medium with some malty sweetness-- just right. Slight bitter and ... soapy aftertaste. Doesnít taste like canned beer. Of course, itís not priced like canned beer, either. Iíd drink it again.
