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.

I have a lot of admiration for Oskar Blues. I donít know if itís fair to call this a pale ale, given that itís so hoppy and the high alcohol content, but whatever it is, itís good. This beer has great color, and although it still feels weird sticking my nose in a can, it smells awesome. This, along with 21st amendment 21-A IPA are two of the best things I have ever had in a can. Dales Pale ale is good stuff.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Golden color and carbonated. Smell of hops and malt. Taste of sweet hops, malt, citrus and a touch of pine and honey. Wonderful bitterness at the end. I cant beleive this beer is in a can.

Mumpu (46) - USA - SEP 17, 2006
Pours rich amber with a thick sticky head and plenty of lacing. There is a freshness of dew-covered fruit in the aroma, perfectly balanced with a sweet maltiness and a balanced hoppy presence at the end. This is an amazing APA.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle. Bright orange color with a white head. Nice hops in the aroma, very sweet, some toffee, decent citrus notes. Bitter, hoppy, a tad one dimensional, but still very good. Very little sweetness in the flavor. Palate is good, refreshing, but a bit watery. Best beer out of can Iíve ever had. Very drinkable.

12oz CAN! Clear and amber hued. Slight skin of white head. Oh, sweet, sweet Cascades! All citrus nose. Slight light malt roast. This is nice. Lively and full. Slick dry and bitter. Light malt flavor. Citrus bitter hop note. Then a bitter slap in the cloying finish. Very nice.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Can, pre-TOOL concert. Pours a beautiful and thick amber, with a nice head and intricate lacing. Aroma is an offshoot of grapefruit with a slight roasted malt presence. Flavor is full-on sour, with notes of grapefruit and grassy hops. A slight tinge of grape seems to be lingering. Full, flowing mouthfeel. Donít let the cheap-looking can fool you; this is a damn good beer.

hotstuff (4642) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Can. Small ivory fizzy head with sparse lacing, transparent, carbonated, and an orange hue. Nose was malty, caramel, hoppy and some spice notes. Taste was caramel, mildly hoppy, spicy and some light fruit taste. Slightly tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium body. Fairly well balanced.

Boutip (5465) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2006
Can courtesy of Brentfeesh: Poured a slightly hazy deep amber color ale with a nice foamy head with average retention. Aroma of crisp C-type hops with a nice sweet malt base. Taste is a very well balance mix between sweet malt and some bitter hops. Body is above average and carbonation is just perfect. Well made example of an APA.
