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.

Deep amber with a small head and loads of lacing. Resinous, citrusy nose. Interesting array of hops, as the commercial description can attest and enough to tip the balance toward the more hoppy APAís. Found some of the maltiness in the latter whiffs of the aroma, and on the back of the tongue on the palate. Nicely carbonated, medium-bodied, with a dry, lingering finish.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2005 I am very impressed with this beer, a very nice APA. Nice floral hoppy aroma, and good malts. Taste is more of the same, good flavor hops, good malts, and a nice bitter bite. And it came in a can! I plan on having at least a 6 of this in my fridge for those of my friends who are ínon beer afficiandosí. When they complain that all I like is the thick heavy beers, Iíll present this and say "See, it comes in a can, so itíll be right up your alley."

hopscotch (9162) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2006 Can... Sparkling clear, golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Honey, apricot and pine in the nose. Chewy caramel malts, but also moderately bitter. Good balance. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, well-bittered finish. Thanks to springslicker for the can!

Iíve had this stuff numerous times while flying on Frontier and is the best Pale Ale Iíve had in a can so far. This stuff proves micros should be in cans. Lightly bitter and more caramel that hoppy. Just wish I had a glass to drink this from instead of a plastic cup.

Thanks to Cpt. Cougar for this. 12oz CAN. 51į. NB worthy glass. Reddish/copper color with a 1/4" off white head. Steady carbonation with little tiny bubbles. When the head recedes, it coats the glass. Aroma is somewhat sweet with spicy, piney, and a touch of citrus hoppiness. Nice malt base and some good hops flavor. The hops have a mostly piney flavor. There is a bit of an agressiveness to the flavor, it might be smokiness, it might be alchohol, or just intense bittering. The finish is a hops bitterness that fades away after 15-20 seconds, leaving a hint of the piney hops. Mouthfeel is good. This is a good APA. I personally like the option of buying a quality beer in a can and I would purchase this for canoeing if it was sold around here. There is one slighty strange flavor that bothers me a bit and knocks the flavor from a 7 to a 6.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Copper colour. Low carbonation Ė nice one. Resiny, woody c-hops in the aroma with crystal malts and a hint of florals. Well-balanced body shows toasty notes and floral/citric hoppiness. Fairly bitter example.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
I was skeptical but this a great beer out of a can. Amber body, medium light cream head. Nice citrusy hops in the aroma with some citrus and even a little smokiness. Strong hoppy flavor with nice citrus and malt balance. A nice pale ale.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2005 From the can, the best beer I have ever tasted out of a can - this is not a gimmick - on our recent canoe trip, it was great to have such a wonderful beer right out of the can - the trash bag provided in the 12-packs is an especially thoughtful touch! In a glass - a great pale ale. Light copper color; medium white head; light carbonation; slight citrus aroma; strong hoppy taste; a dry pale ale aftertaste. All in all, a great beer.

Delicious looking in the glass. Fruity, zesty, flowery aroma. Fresh malt meets my nose. This came from a can? My goodness yes! Flavor is sharp and yet very balanced. Grapefruit, bread, pine-like flavors. Nice bitter finish. I have had this and the Old Chub, and I have been pleased both times. Finally canned beer done right!

This is really quite impressive, Iíve never poured anything out of a can that looked so nice. Pours a copper/amber with a tall off-white head that leaves thick lacing. Tons of citrus hops create an aromatic halo around this brew. Taste starts with just a flinch of sweetness up front being chased by a big ol citrus hop finish thats rather bitter and nice. A great APA (really hoppy enough to be an IPA), now maybe you guys can make the big 24oz cans of this!
