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.

Yup, I never saw this coming. How can, can beer be so good? This is a hard-core hopped beer from the aroma all the way to the end. Dales Pale Ale is perfect the for camping trip or just chilling at the crib. Iím on my way to get another 6pk ASAP.

Golden color, smallish head after pouring from the can. Hoppy, but somewhat of a metallic flavor I think. Not sure I really like the can thing. Itís a decent pale ale, but I wouldnít really seek it out.

Late 2005 or early 2006 six-pack Consumed over a number of days in late January. I done drinked it straight from the can, so I donít know íbout no ípearance. No just kidding, itís a clear marigold with loads of fairly dense, lasting (and lightly lacing) beige colored head, plenty of bubbles rising. Nose is rough and raw hop greeness. Juicy, very floral and citric at the same time, without any real fruitiness. Bits of grass clippings, touch of pine. Malt is caramelly sweet in the nose, but allows the hop aroma to dominate. Light sourness from munich-like grains. The flavor shows more of the melanoidins from the malt, and plenty of hop bitterness. Plant-like and green, itís more floral than anything, with a very dry, unripened grapefruit flavor, orange rinds and light touches of pine sap. Malts almost seem to add to the dryness, especially on the end, as it comes off extremely bready. Fitting carbonation for a can, not over-the-top, but certainly present. Papery-bready mouthfeel, softened a touch by the caramel maltiness, but barely so. No alcohol apparency. After it warms, the breadiness, crystally/caramely malt simplicity and monotonous hop acidity become too heavy on the palate.

Hazed deep orange, creamy off-white head. Rich hopped up nose of mango, citrus, pineapple and apricot. Layered undertones of toasted caramel and molasses play out upon warming. Juicy floral and citrus hop tones balance well with a near perfect toffee and caramel backbone. Slight hints of pine are noted late. Medium bodied, light carbonation, drying bittersweet finish. Do I dare say I love it in the can? There...I said it...and itís damn funny...

Can. What a wonder to pour this, see its beatiful golden orange translucent liquid come forth bearing a scent of fresh sweet florida oranges. Its flavor is classic pale ale, bitter and slightly citrust sweet, a little pucker in the finish. Itís very smooth on first entering the mouth and only delivers its bite gradually. A delicious pale ale and, Iím sure, well suited to the outdoors, outdoorsy weather, and outdoors activites and behavior...

Tap @ the Horseshoe Pub. Good nose, sweet. Pine and citrus mix. Clean orange copper color, ok head with good lacing. Bittersweet flavor. Like aroma with a little yeasty/nutty thing. Has some caramel/toffee malt backbone, but the hops rule. Medium body, creamy/oily mouthfeel, bittersweet finish. Thatís a real good pale ale, butter than some ipaís Iíve had.

This beer pours a rusty orange color and leaves a frothy head with holes throughout the froth. The smell of this ale is piney and citrus with some sweet fruit candy in the background of this nectar. The taste of this ale is so smooth it hits you with a very light carbonation followed by a sweet honey comb flavor finished with a bitterness that leave you wanting a little more. The overall flavor is a bit bland on the finish but this is still a quallity brew.

Handed out as freebie on Jam Cruise 4. Unlike the Oskar Scottish style, I do, in fact, like pale ales....but this one fell way short of my expectations. I researched it here first before the cruise and was looking forward to it. Goes to show us beer lovers are just as differant as we are alike.

Had this on-tap at the brewery. the beer poured a clear, medium-orange color with an average, creamy, off-white, mostly lasting head that leaves behind nice lacing. The aroma is kind of a one-dimensional hop party, but still pretty interesting: Lightly yeasty with a note of sweet caramel, heavily hoppy with fat, vivid notes of grapefruit, herbs, apricot and pine / resin; Miscellaneous note of moderate vanilla that tempers the acidity of the hop aroma nicely. The flavor is trace sweetness and heavily bitter with a long, moderately acidic, heavily bitter finish. The body is full, the texture is creamy, the carbonation is lively and the finish is moderately alcoholic.
