3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oskar is really impressing me with this whole good beer in a can idea. Poured a clear amber with a frothy white head that quickly disappeared into nothing but a memory. Tons of hops in the aroma with a hint of malts as well. Flavor is fantastic but I agree with Yankovitch333 that it seems almost like an IPA rather than an APA. My only problem now is when going for a beer in a can do I grab this or an Old Chub, decisions decisions.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 New: Not much to add to below except that I keep buying this stuff. Itís really wonderful. Old: (3/11/07) This is a very likeable beer. It has a nice amount of fruity malt and a definite hop presence. Thereís no one thing that I would particularly remark upon, but there is this undeniable, overall sense of quality that you experience while drinking it.

Looking forward to trying this one. I always passed getting this beer, the can always put me off. I decided to check the ratings and see how horrible it was, I then find out that it is a really decently rated beer. Pours an amber color with a nice white head on top. Aroma is full of hops with grapefruit and citrus taking dominance. Sweet malts come in the aroma too with caramel and vanilla. Flavor is grapefuit and citrus with caramel malts coming in. Finishes with a nice hoppy bitterness. A very refreshing beer. A "to go to" beer.

I have no idea what this beer will ever look like. I refuse to pour canned beer into a glass. But all I can say is that I found my ONE and ONLY TRUE LOVE!!!! An awesome beer in a can!!! I love canned beer. Now I can take GOOD beer out on the boat! As for the beer. It has a nice aroma. Lots of flora hops. Pine and citrus jump right out at you on the tongue. Nice bitter finish. Itís more hoppy than I expected. Itís more like an IPA than an APA. A great beer. A great beer in a can. There is a god.

The aroma on this beer is amazing. Strong citrus and pine. Flavor is more of the same. This is an awesome beer. Amost too hoppy for me to consider it an APA, but I cant complain.

Another Winner from Oskar. Its got great concentration of malt and hops. Pinney, citrus hops in the beginning but not so much as the beer progresses. Palate also starts off strong then thins out. Recommended.

(Can from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julioís Liquors) Malty with a piney bite - do these guys make anything thatís bad?...Pours cloudy orange/amber with a large light amber/biege head that ultimately becomes a soft lumpy cap of about 1/2". Aroma of sweet malt - egg cream, vanilla and a little toffee. Mouthfeel smooth and fairly meaty, esp. for a pale ale. Flavor of sweet malt - primarily egg cream and vanilla overlain with a distinct hoppy bite with a flavor of pine and maybe a touch of grapefruit rind. Hoppy pine bitterness in finish. Quite satisfying.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 Can - Iíve had this one on several occasions, but never in a place that was rating friendly. Amber color with a med-large head. Sweet aroma of caramel malts with an appetizing floral hop essence. Taste is smooth and sweet. Well balanced, finishes nice. Why canít all APAs be this good and be widely available in cans?

Daleís Pale Ale has a large, dense, and foamy off-white head that leaves lots of
lacing. It has a sweet grapefruit aroma and a bright golden orange/honey color. Lots of caramel and maltiness to the flavor with a moderate hop bitterness. It is a bit sweet on back side, but well balanced overall. The fine carbonation creates a smooth and extremely easy to drink beer that is also crisp, clean, refreshing. Another great canned beer that deserves both respect and itís high rating. I would love to have this available on a regular basis so that I could take it hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, picnicing, and more!
12 oz can from Ross. Thanks man!

12oz can purchased from Bauer Wines in Boston. Pours a dark copper with lots of head and lacing. Lovely hoppy aroma. Nice full flavour, and without a doubt the best beer Iíve ever had from a can. Unfortunately, I wonít be able to bring it home ever again, because cans do not fly well. (Had one of its cousins, an Old Chubb, explode in my suitcase. Now it smells like good beer.)
