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.

Canned version. Large rocky white head sits on top of an attractive clear orange brew. Moderately hoppy aroma with light pine and grapefruit notes. Fairly bitter tasting pale ale from start to finish. Strong grapefruit notes combine with a decent malt background and creates a sweet pine like finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very enjoyable.

12 oz can. Pours a bright clear copper with a fluffy off-white one finger head. Nice retention and lacing. Bright citric hop aroma over a bready and toasted malt base, very clean. Nice moderate citric hop flavor with a well balanced malty backbone. Crisp and thirst quenching. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel despite fairly active carbonation. A very solid Pale Ale. Anybody who can claim to tell that this is from a can is either crazy or a liar.

Can (hell yeah). Pours golden orange with a tight, rocky white head. It has a very smooth hop aroma with some pine and earth. The flavor is a little bitter with a zesty bite and a pine-sap like finish. It gets just a little bit sweet as I drink more. Decent balance.

Centennial citrusy hops and plenty of malt on the nose. Pours copper with a huge off-white head. Flavor is mighty hoppy with a nice medium malt balance, medium body with a clean finish. It smells and tastes quite fresh. I’m a can fan now. I admire Oskar Blues for having the wisdom and guts to bring back the can. Good work guys!

0.5l for $4.50 at the Brick Store Pub. It was served in an unmarked pint glass. I swear I could smell it as it was being brought up the stairs. When this got to the table there was no head left and there was not much room for there to have ever been one. It was a clear reddish brown and had some good carbonation going on. It had a very BIG floral hoppy aroma. Liked to have knocked me out of my seat. (Nice!) If you can make it through that there is a hint of pine and underlying malt. The taste were unique and at first I could not place it. Ever smelled Murphy’s Oil Soap? Do you like the smell? (I do!) Yep! That’s what I was getting as a taste. I loved it. It must have been the way the hops balanced the malts that caused this “flavor.” I’d say this is a well balanced beer when it comes to taste. It was medium bodied and well carbonated. I understand this comes in a can. I shall look for it. (I did and I found it! Not quite as good as on tap, but not bad.)

A fine canned beer! What a pleasure to drink. Pours with a long lasting head. Great hopped taste. The malt is perfect for me in this beer. Beautiful color in the glass. Enjoy this beer on a hot day on ice with a thick deli sandwitch. Will even bring you luck when Steelhead fishing.

12oz can from ClarkVV. First off, im giving the appearance a 5 because I drank it out of the can which was beutiful. The nose was light crisp hops, some caramel, grass and a light fizzyness. Taste is a fresh crisp hop with some lightly stingy carbonation. A subtle malt back bone containing caramel and some fresh cut grass. Oh how I miss the days of drinking from a can.

Golden ale with a thin white head. Pleasant floral hops with honey notes, pungeant and floral. Crisp malt with a good c-hops backbone, crisp in mouth, no tinny can notes. Medium bodied. Can at the CNY Brewfest 2006.
