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 can’t, where flavorless canned beers don’t belong. And no matter where you drink Dale’s 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.

Beautifull cloudy orangish amber brew with major huge foamy white head. Huge aroma of citrus and bitter sweet grapefruit. Heavy brew, bready, grain kind of bitter hoppy flavor. Pretty satisfying.

Tastes great, even though from a can. Lots of flavor, perhaps even more flavor than average pale ale, but very drinkable.

I’m not sure how this doesn’t get higher ratings. To style, its as good as it gets and its in a can no less. I’m guessing that if you threw a Stone or Three Floyds label on this and put it in a bottle and charged $40 a case for it, that the ratings would be higher. The beer has the malt and the hops but neither is overdone like alot fo the IPAs these days. Bitterness is medium with a great american hop flavor and aroma. The head was froathy and simply a thing of beauty. Its really good stuff...

Can sampled at the Newtown Brewfest. pours golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. The flavor is citrus, slightly sweet upfront, and finishing with a hoppy bitterness. Good body, decent brew.

On tap at HDG. Hazy orange in color with a nice fluffy off white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Orange and grapefruit notes. Malty and hoppy flavor. Piney and earthy notes. Sweet tasting. Finish is nice and bitter. Medium bodied. Very nice beer. Enjoyable.

(Thanks to Jah Noth) poured a hazy orange color with a nice off white head. It had a nice bold citrus hop aroma with some nice sweet caramel malts. The taste was bitter as if it was an IPA with a huge citrus hop flavor and a slightly sweet finish. Overall I would love to have more of this and think it is a great example of a strong pale ale.
