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.

New York Times recommends and now I do too. The 2nd best beer in a can next to Old Chub. A solid Pale Ale for a buck fiddy. A good time all around.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2005 Original Rating (7-4-7-4-14=3.4): Grapefruit, leafy, herbal hops in the nose with some underlying biscuity, toasty malt character. Hazy orange-tan coloured body with a low tan head that recedes to cover with nice lace. Biscuity and toasty malts with leafy, herbal, citrus hops in balance and fair finishing bitterness. Medium light body with moderately lively carbonation. Sampled on tap at Breckenridge.
Rerate (9-4-8-3-17=4.1): Thick, sweet, biscuity and caramel malts with orange, herbal hops apparent. Clear copper coloured body is topped with a decent off white head that lasts well and laces. Strong grapefruit, orange, herbal hops with fairly strong bitterness over sweet caramel malts that have some pleasant toasty notes. Dry, medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Can enjoyed with MartinT, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

Give it a 5 on apperance for having the balls to put it in a can. Anyway I had it and had to have another cause I couldnít believe it, a good beer in a can...ok enough about the can. Very hoppy aroma with a nice mouthfeel, very upfront hop flavor which I like. Good finish and easier to throw away and not have to worry about breaking. OK, the beer was good

Wow. About as hoppy as a beer ever should be. Lots of hop bitters (caused by the isomerization of alpha acids in the hops), with plenty of hop flavor and aroma. Distinct hoppiness (as advertised), nice not so pale amber color, and pours with a huge but not particularly dense white head that lasts a damn long time for a carbonated beer. Cascades are obvious, the rest of the hops are difficult to discern until you read the commercial description. Sierra Nevada: watch out. Thereís a new American Pale Ale in town, and itís not taking any crap.

Great great great beer. Strong in your face hop flavor that is still tame enough to allow you to enjoy the taste and not just flinch. Not very malty and relaxed but definately present after taste. And I donít care what anybody says, I like cans better than bottles. They are lighter, more durable, easier to carry, and protect the hops from sunlight better than glass.

12 oz can. Pretty solid little APA. Nice amber color with a small head that faded rather quickly. The aroma is mainly hops, with the taste being of mostly hops but a little bit of a solid malt background. This was much better than I expected when I first saw the can. (the 6.5% abv was stronger than I thought it would be)

Thanks to FlacoAlto for this beer.

Poured an effervescent amber with a semi-frothy white head. Clean citrusy and piney hop aroma. Taste is piney hops, a hint of butterscotch and a smidgen of toffee. Clean and crisp APA; delicious.
