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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 OMG, I never thought I would have such satisfaction out of a can. I"m so damn hard right now. This is an awesome pale ale.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I have been curious about this one for a while now. Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a chestnut color with a large tan head. The aroma is sour malts with a vaguely vegetal undertone and mild floral hops. The flavor is sweet malts with a bit of grapefruity hops. The body is moderately thick. The hops while noticeable are rather subdued. This one really reminds me more of an English style pale ale rather than an American pale ale.

All this flavor from a can, who knew!?! Decent, these guys can turnaround some pretty decent pale ales. Great mouthfeel, great flavors, nice musky hoppiness from the cascade. Impressive.

What a beer. And from a can! I had low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Good hop aromas. Good malty mouth coating.
