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.

There is something deliciously covert about drinking a fine pale ale from a can. The freedom to be a beer geek and look like you don’t care. To look like one of the guys without actually being one. Poke a hole in the bottom of the can, cover it with your mouth, pull the tab and let the lush malt and ample hops stream down your gullet. Let out a huge belch and before they catch a wiff of the resiny pine and citrus, smash the can against your head and they’ll remain in their corn fed bliss none the wiser.

A light, clear, orangey pour, nice off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and hop spice, a nice carmelley maltiness, and slightly bready. On the tongue, a mellow refreshing palate containing nice blend of sweet slightly carmelly malt and a grapefruity-citrus hop, developing into a lingering dry bitterness in the back of the mouth. Nice stuff, and surprisingly good, as well; I’m not used to REAL beer from a can! Try it, you’ll like it. I’ll have to make Dale’s a regular.

Can. Copper coloured beer with a thich creamy off-white head. Great looking beer. Aroma is of sweet orangey hops, spicy and earthy with a great balance of sweet caramel and toasted malt flavour in the back. Flavour shows lots of sweet biscuity malts, some cookie dough, light hop resin, fruit and spice with a kiss of pine as well. Well-balanced tasty beer.

Pours a clear amber color with a big off white head. Nice lacing left as the head slowly settles. Nice floral, citrus hop aroma. Flavor is lightly hopped with some noticeable caramel malt. No metalic flavor that you might expect from a canned beer. Very smooth medium body beer. The best canned beer I have ever had. Hands down. I will pick up a couple of 6ers the next time I go tubbin’ down the salt river. A must try.

Fabulous malt and hop profile. Made with Munich malt, which gives a malty grainy character to the malt backbone. Lots of American hops. Piney and resinous. I Really dig the can. A must drink IPA. Perfect Colorado Pale Ale.

A great American Pale Ale that could easily be classified as an American interpretation of an IPA. Hoppy, copper and assertive, this is a great beer for something substantial like a basket of onion rings or other such pub grub. Wonderful to look at, but not very aromatic or floral, this one will scare your Hops-fearing Mother.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 11, 2006
12 oz can. Amber with a big off white head that diminishes to a dense white film. Srtong caramel in the nose, resiny pine. Wonderfully balanced flavor, caramel and toffee, piney hop. The finish is really interesting - initially, a big hop bite, then an orangey caramel sweetness, then more piney hop. Wonderful APA!

Boy, am I glad I grabbed the last can of this at the Total Wine store. Great head with mild retention and great sudsy lace. Nice caramel malts and resin aroma. The flavors are much the same, with a great caramel malt underlying an awesome hoppy mid-palate and clean pine-hop finish. The mouthfeel is both cleansing and round, with good levels of carbonation that add to the overall effect of the brew. Very nice complexities that work wonderfully together, and make for a classic APA! Awesome!

Fairly deep amber with orange hues. Nice off white head. Nose of toasty malts and spicy centennials. Just about medium bodied, texture a bit watery but firms up nicely as it warms. Semi-sweet crystal malts with hints of caramel and toast. Perfect amount of bitterness to balance, long hop spice aftertaste. Great pale ale. Best beer in a can I have had:) Reminicent of alpha king.
