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.

Amber coloured, Citrousy hops in aroma with some malty notes. Some toffee is present too. Flavour is quite malty and earthy. Really hoppy flavour as well. Great bitterness.

Sammy (9438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006
Understated pale, with citrus hop smell and citrus orange taste. Above average mouthfeel. Satisfying in a meal. Suitable carbonation. Decent for a beer in a can, but I still detected metallic in my glass. which subtracted from a good balance of bitterness and malt.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Pours a med. clear amber with an attractive sherbert like head. Arom of caramel and biscuit malts along with a nice wallop of piney, citrusy hops. The body med and slightly sweet, maybe a bit too big for the style. The flavors are huge malts, gobs luscious american hops and just perfectly in balance. The finish is nicely bitter without being too IPA like. This is just a great Pale ale.

thedm (5064) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 9, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foam with a frothy top fine to large sized off-white colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated light orange brown colored body. The strong aroma was hoppy and doughy. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild caramel hop aftertaste and a hop bite. The flavor contained notes of piney hops mild caramel and dough. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Capa (2260) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Draught at the Blarney Stone in Philly. Poured a orange/golden color with only traces of head. Aroma had floral, sweet and pine hues. Flavor was mellow, sweet and pretty good. Citrus and hops were noticable as well maybe some nuts. Was suprisingly good, something Iíd try again.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2006
12 oz Can-Trade w/after4ever-Poured a orange color w/no head but a lot of lacing. Hoppy aroma w/traces of grass & grain. Definite hoppy flavor, not a lot else. Some roasted nuts maybe, but just too much hoops. No real malt or sweetness to balance it out. This is average at best & that may be generous. Donít really understand all the buzz @ this one dementionial beer

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Draught at Brewery: Faint aroma was both malty and hoppy. A little fruity. Poured amber in color. Medium, off-white head lasted. Ok head. Sparkling and clear. Flavor was nutty, hoppy, malty and skunky. Mildly sweet and bitter. Also tastes like dough. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Not balanced. An ok Pale Ale. Note: after we said it was skunky, the brewer tried it, agreed, and immediatly changed the keg.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2006
12oz can, no date. Iíve been excited to get my hands on this stuff for a while, and hopefully it wonít let me down. Pours a clear orange copperish with a one finger staying light yellow head. Aroma of big pine and grapefruit, some caramel and toffee hops bordering on butterscotch, though not enough to be bad. Very bitter up front considering itís an APA, with more perfumey and piney hops, also getting some grainy malts and a lingering grassy (not Saaz grassy though) bitter finish. Medium bodied, mod-high carbonation. Did not disappoint at all, and it is the best beer Iíve had in a can.

rickgordon (3846) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2006
[Canned, SBWF] Clear amber colour. Deep fatty hop nose. Pale malty with some sweetness and loaded with citrusy and flowery hops in flavour. Soapy, bit earthy mouthfeel. Good bitter finish.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Can. Pours clear copper in color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is piney and floral hops, with a definite maltiness as well. Flavor is textbook APA: a rich hop character, maltiness in the middle, and a clean finish.
