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.

[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet and quite hoppy, and so is the flavor too - the hops is mainly aroma hops, not much bitterness.

Can
Light copper brown, small white head. Flowery American hops in the nose. Medium-bodied, good malt profile with some hoppyness. Balanced American pale ale, which has some character of IPA.

PorterPounder (5553) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2005
On tap at the Summit Wayside Tavern in Atlanta, Ga. Dark orange pour, sticky white frothy head with excellent lacing. Light, but fresh sprucey aroma. Flavor has a clean grapefruity essence to it with some underlying honeydew melon. Very fresh and tasty - surprised. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Excellent APA.

thanks to zanthrus13 for this treat.. Poured a medium orange color with a smallish white head.. Aroma was hoppy with a bit of malt.. Flavor followed suit with a nice combination of citrus and pine hops. Medium to light mouthfeel with good carbonation.. Best beer I have ever had in a can.

on tap-pours an off white head with a cloudy orange color. Aroma is fruity, grain and hoppy. Taste is robust hops&malt. 3.5 12 oz can tasted just as good. 3.5

"Don’t let the can fool you!!" were the words on the sign next to this beer. There is something about the institutional box that makes a 12-pack of these seem like you are going home with office supplies stolen from your work. Anyway, this is the best beer that I have ever had in a can.

From the can. Styretowne. Not that bad. Brisk, crisp, and a nice mingling of hops. Would have it again. Nice to see a pale ale in a blue-collar can like this. Makes me feel like I don’t need to dress up to drink it.

Pours a slightly hazy blonde orange color with a small amount of very very thin fizzy white head. Aroms is floral, sweet, and slightly hoppy. Flavor is very smooth, sugared grapefruit, with a perfect bitter finish. Overall an extremely good beer.
