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.

Can at the LI Beer Festival. Being a beer can collector, I especially enjoy seeing microbrews using cans. The brewer explained to me the new technology in cans these days makes them better carriers for beer than bottles. If this beer and Old Chub are any indication, theyíre right. Nice fruity hop aroma and flavor. Also the appropriate amount of hop bitterness. Iíd love to see these on my local shelves.

Best beer Iíve had from a can, hands down. Very tasty. Iím not even going to pour it into a glass. Very hoppy aroma and taste. Slightly bitter finish. Awesome beer.

Can (12oz). Good beer in a can - Iím up for it! Poured hazy orange with a smallish creamy white head. Smells like a very good APA - orange/citrus sweet & resiny hops with plenty of yeasty light roast malt backing. Tastes right too - a little light in flavour, but resiny/orange zest bitter hops with a little less malt backing, a touch smokey. Mouthfeel is creamy, lively and astringent - I could quibble and say itís a tad watery, but six-packs of this at the corner store? Iíd be there in a shot; good stuff.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2006
From the can, pours a hazy, dark golden color, with a thick, white head that leaves a nice lacing down the side of the glass. Smells of grassy hops, some citrus, some lemon peel aromas. Tastes bitter and hoppy, a smoothness at the end, more floral than grassy. Really smooth for a pale ale.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 Enjoyed at the Dark Lord/Hampton Inn tasting 06. Pretty good hoppy sweet aroma. Clean orangey amber with a khaki head. Well balanced with a plesant bitterness. Short finish. Medium to full body with the perfect level of carbonation. I love the can. I wish this would make it over to MOKAN. Welcome in my glass anytime.

Straight from the can. Looks reddish colored with a white head. Pretty hoppy, smooth to drink. Hints of malts in this as well. Not bad. A little too heavy to be a lawn mower beer (that was what i bought it for - resorted to High Life after a can of this). Interesting to say the least. Ill rerate once I pour it out into a glass. Good beer in a can is def. something new to me.

Wow! I havenít had an American Pale this solid since, well, ever! This beer is like an epic battle between malts and hops. Just when you think one is going to over-power the other, the tide of battle turns and youíre left at a flavor impasse. I must say the can is a sexy twist as well. Thereís a slight metallic taste (but that can be alleviated by pouring the beer into a glass I suppose). I wonder if itís cheaper to can beer than it is to bottle it.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2006
Can. Rich orange gold color with creamy white head. Big, fresh hoppiness smoothed over perfectly with soft, sweet orange flavors. Nearing IPA-ness, but round and soft. Delicious. I looked this beer over at first because of the can, but this stuff is foí real.

Has a powerful hop aroma form the snifter and makes plenty of rocky clumps in the head of the beer. Has nice caramel orange color and hops abound in the taste along with bready yeast. The finish is a little piney being moderate enought to still be classified as a regular pale ale, and one of my favorites. Now Iím going to finish the rest off in the can out on the porch.

On tap at the brewpub, 4/13/06: Bright orange with an excellent sticky head. Nice little hoppy aroma. Yummy citric hoppiness wit a solidly sweet malt backdrop.
