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 can’t, where flavorless canned beers don’t belong. And no matter where you drink Dale’s 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.

Wow! I haven’t 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 you’re left at a flavor impasse. I must say the can is a sexy twist as well. There’s a slight metallic taste (but that can be alleviated by pouring the beer into a glass I suppose). I wonder if it’s 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 fo’ real.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2006
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 I’m 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.

MIBRomeo (2564) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2006
a light golden orange colo rw/ a full thick small bubled white head and soem great lacing. Aroma is mostly hop a spicy note and a good floral hop aroma. Palate is full well coated and lightly creamy. Flavor is a very nice APA, good amount of nice hop some floral and definate citrus notes w/ a full malty backbone. Very good.. I can’t believe this came in a can.

shrubber85 (7846) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2006
Can. Strong hops aroma with moderate tart cherry as well. Reddish yellow with moderate head. Strong hops flavor as well with orange and cherry notes. Oskar Blues has some of the best canned beer ever.

Gachupines (930) - USA - APR 21, 2006
Amber with a thick, lingering white head. Taste is hops with a decent malt presence. Overall, fairly bitter for a pale ale, but thats part of why I like it. This could easily become a new fallback/session beer for me and the can actually makes it more convenient on some occassions.

Shag (2623) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 A perfume and grapefruit aroma. The apperance is a dark orange with a moderate head. The flavor is quite bitter with some peaches, grapefruit, and lemons present. A slight pine presence is also detected. Awesome pale ale! Dont let the can fool you!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2006
UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Pours a tawny amber color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Thick and sticky residual lacing. Aroma has a prominant hop profile. Medium full nectar w/ soft and creamy residual effers. Another WOW, this is a can ? I would have never known. This pale is on the hoppy side and delivers a crispness even w/ the thick malts. Big citrus rind, leather, sea salt, and slight biscuits delivered by massive waves of dense malt. The finish is bittered extensively yet leaving my palate wet. This and Old Chub are perfect high quality canned brews that should be included in your "no glass allowed" activities. Overall; a very rich and delicious brew worthy of it’s rating. Highly recommended!

JorisPPattyn (8007) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2006
From a tin can, as it behoves Orange-amber, slight (chill) haze; no head. Very hoppy, grapey & grapefruit nose, very dry, fruity &lively at the same time. Rather soft mellow bitterness, again fruity. No new aftertaste, but the hoppy bitterness lingers on exceptionally long. Slightly burning but non-aggressive MF; with a mineral water quality. Medium body. Very good pale ale, in no way inhibited by the can, agreed.
