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.

Canned. Semi clear and amber coloured with a rather large offwhite head. Quite refreshing with notes of flowers, pines, fruits and also has a quite maltt sweetness to it.

Pours somewhat hazy amber, aroma of hops, wet forrest, maybe some pine resins. Flavor is full bodied, hops, pepper, brown sugars and malts. Wow, pretty good damn pale ale.

Dorqui (2168) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 23, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Draught at The Ginger Man (Manhattan - NY).
Orange/reddish color with good head of discreet duration. Much flowery and perfumed aroma with optimal notes of wood, cask and toasted sugar. Dense and barren taste, rather sweetish but that towards the end it is developed in a determined and alcoholic bitter. Balsamic and harmonious, good persistence.

Itís nice to see more of these brews making their way into CT. Pours copper with a white creamy head. Smells of pine, citrus, some tea, hints of pepper. Tastes of grapefruit, some sweet malt and bitter on the finish. I had some higher expectations for this.

India Pale Ale #100. Many thanks to Skyview trucking this in for the Cellarís tasting. Copper color with a thin head. Slight citrus hop aroma. The taste has an almost vegetal hop quality to it with a finish of dry caramel. Someone apparently said this was the countryís best canned beer? Uh, no. Not even the best in Oskarís lineup.

Can. Amber with huge head, brilliant clarity. Extremely floral and piney aroma, thereís some grapefruit too and behind all the hop aroma some caramel aroma too. The bitter, hoppy flavour is well balanced with a malty backbone, VERY good. Lowere carbonation than other american ales, which really suits the beer.

Skyview grabbed some of these from Hudson to share. Iím more disappointed with this beer now that I see the style. I thought it was a decent pale ale. Lots sweet carmel malts and candy sugar with a faint bitter finish. I didnít get much hops at all...

Yeah, thanks to slob for the skinny on this beauty. Very similar to SNPA in initial hop flavor and creamier character in body but more robust and a more subdued and rounded hop finish. Wow, that was a nice run-on sentence. Glad I bought the six pack for todays project lubrication. The best beer in a can I have ever had.
