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! Cloudy brown-orange with a small cream colored head that dissipates quickly. Aromas are dominated by hops which smells wonderful. The tastes are just the same -- lots of hops with a creamy feel. I donít know if I had it too cold, but the aftertaste was weird in the back of my mouth -- kind of soap suds and water with too much chlorine in it. Other than that slight bump in the road for me -- it is enjoyable. Good price for a six pack too!

Hazy amber with a fluffy, creamy beige head. Subtle aroma of creamy, caramelly and grainy malt and mild lemon zest and grapefruit hop oils. The caramel, grain, breadiness and and light cookie elements tend to be a bit more dominate. The soft citrus, grass and light perfume aromas seem to balance and intrigue, as opposed to bullying their way to the forefront. The body is relatively moderate, a little light and easy drinking with molderate to active carbonation. The flavor has a nice balance of sweet malt and mild hop character. The hops donít bring a lot of bitterness, but add more of a light ting that keeps the malt from becoming too dominate. The layered malt is fairly robust for the style, but isnít extremely complex. All told, this seems to be a great drinking beer with loads of flavor and easy manuverability (see: cans). If I could get this locally, I might drink it pretty often.

Pour is nice copper amber with a big nice off white head...smell is pine and soap with some hints of grapefruit citrus...I hope it tastes as hoppy as it smells...taste is lightly hoppy up front with some nice balance from sweet malty flavors...hops build into a medium bitter finish...good...

12 oz can...YES, I SAID CAN!!!! Thank you to Chris McKim @ the Brew Kettle in Strongsville OH for this one! Coppery amber w/a a very long lasting cream colored pillowy head. Initial aromas are grassy and soapy hops. But lemony citrus hops behind as it warms and some English tea leaf hops as well. Toasty malt w/ a little bit of caramel and even a bit of bready yeast. A very little bit of alcohol fruitiness comes in when warmed to cellar temps. Flavor is well balanced, a bit lemony acidic in the intial flavor on the tongue, but toasty malt and herbal hops follow quickly. Only a bit of fruitiness, some herbal hop flavors at the finish and into the aftertaste. Low medium carb., smooth, a light bit of alcohol. Holy Shit!!!! This stuff is packaged in a CAN?!!!!! I canít wait to try the Scotch ale!!! Very well put together for being in a can! Iím impressed!

Hoppy aroma, amber and medium body look. Much malts and a hoppy aftertaste. Does have hoppy taste but malts are definitly what takes the beer over. Best beer in a can that i have had

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Pours a nice golden orangish color. Aroma is big piney hops with some floral and fruit. Flavor of a classic pale, mildly sweet malt action followed by great hop flavor bite, smooth throughout and a great finish.

I had it in the can, poured into a glass. Classice Pale ale. Nice frothy head. Citrus, hoppy start, and finishes smooth and clean. Hopps are not over berring... so if you donít normally like hoppy beers, this one wonít kill you....

TomDecapolis (4445) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2006 Thanks to hopdog. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with an average off white fluffy head that left some lacing and sustained. Aroma of pine, lemon, orange and some roasted malts with tons of caramel malts. Flavor of pine, orange, floral hops, some caramel and a bit dry at the end. This was solid, picked up a case of it for a softball game.

Nice amber color,large white head that had a decent hang time then faded to leave a bit of a lace behind.Malty citrusy aroma upfront with plenty of hops coming through.The flavor was much better then i was expecting it to be.Nice malty side with a strong showing of citrus and hops with a nice bitterness hanging on from the middle to the end.Very nice brew with way more flavor then i was expecting to see from a can thats for sure.I guess if this was a localy attainable brew iíd buy more of it for sure but for now the one can will have to do.
