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.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 over the years this has gone from being enjoyable to ho-hum to terrible, sometimes within months. itís not my tastes, really. this beer is made so inconsistently that some batches are nothing by fusel alcohol, solvent and metal. OB tends to make these beers under-fermented and raw-tasting; sweet, chewy, boozy with astringent hops. garbage craft beer in a can for your convenience. 2.5 to 3.2 range.

Thick frothy pale colored head. Ringy lacing. Crystal clear pale amber. Smells of hops, malt, caramel, honey, alfalfa, and sea water. Canít put my finger on the specific flavors, but damn fine none the less. Starts dry, finishes wet. Interresting. I loved it.

Was a bit skeptical at first considering the $8.49 price tag for a canned APA but came away quite impressed. Poured a slightly hazy amber-orange color. Produced a classic tight, creamy beige head with excellent retention throughout the entire glass. Lots of clumpy foam islands and thick lacing. A nicely balanced aroma which leaned slightly to the malts over the hops here. Smells of caramel candy, biscuits and honey backed by more subdued notes of orange rind, grapefruit and pine needles. Mouthfeel was full and round for the style, more like a bigger IPA. Nicely done fine carbonation. Taste profile flips from the aroma seeming to favor the hops more. Citrus and pine predominate supported by mildly sweet flavors of crystal malts, caramel, fresh bread and honey. Finish was crisp, quite bitter and dry. This is one hefty APA; more like an American IPA in all respects. The OBís beers are certainly a bit pricey but so far for me this oneís a winner and worth the $$$.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 FBG07. Delicious hop nose, very heavy on the grapefruit notes. Amber with a thin white head. Hoppy deliciousness, well-balanced citrus. Palate is clean and not too dry for the style. Hell of a session ale.

From the can. Nice solid pale ale. Good hop bite to it. Good floral aroma to it.

Beautiful head for a pale ale. Citrusy hops that do not overpower--they blend nicely with malt, but definitely set the pace for this beer. Nice, snappy finish with no disagreeable aftertaste. Hmmmm... perhaps my favorite pale ale to date.

Can I picked up at Whole Foods: You can smell the hops on this, pours a darkish amber with a white head, the taste is not as hoppy as the aroma had me expecting, very nice for a canned beer.

Can from Broudyís Liquor. Poured dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid smooth resin hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. Standout drinkable brew in a can.

Wow...amazing to drink a beer out of can and have it be good. I have no idea about the color cuz I drank it right out of the can. The taste was the great malt and hops with a nice light hops background. Glad I brought it back with me from Rhode Island.
