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.

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!

No real notes on appearance or aroma, as I just have to drink this from the can. Full bodied brew thatís nicely hopped throughout, but light enough to ensure a good drinkability. Mild bitterness in the finish. Update: Draft at Oskar Blues: Pours a fiery amber with a small white head. Great hoppy aroma jumps out of the glass. A real solid caramel malt backbone supports the hops in the body. A real nice APA.

Itís . . . itís from a can, and it doesnt suck. Itís an American beer from a can, and it doesnít suck. My world no longer makes sense. Pours out a deep copper, absolutely stunning head, very thick and creamy, stays around for a simply amazing amount of time. Nose quite hoppy, some pine resin there and citrius. Flavor rather good, initial hoppy bit followed by some sweet malts, though not as sweet as it could be. Certainly canít fault it for mouthfeel, extremely full and creamy. Looks and feels beautiful, smells good, tastes good. Quite nice.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 12oz can, unsure how fresh this is. pours a pale color with huge head. clearly over carbonated. aroma is good mainly PNW hops. not a hop bomb but is pleasent. mouthfeel is kinda watery and fizzy. not too bitter. hops seem balanced. a refreshing beer but nothing special.

Pours a nice copper color with creamy white head. Nice citrus hop aroma with a note of caramel malt. Taste is much the same with a little more malt then I like. Overall this a solid beer.

Lots of hops and malt. Solid although a bit too sweet for me. Hides the alcohol quite a bit.

Pours a hazy copper color with off-white head. Floral hop and citrus aroma. Overly bitter malt flavor with grassy citrus accents.

Pours a light copper color with a good sized foamy off-white head, nice looking beer. Nice floral and citrusy hops aroma. Nice malty sweetness, overall a nice APA. Thanks OG.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Pours a light copper with a big fluffy off white head. Aroma of citris, grapefruit and pine. Taste is a thick sweetness along with the grapefruit and pine. More of a light ipa/barleywine style then apa. Donít care for the sweetness. Columbus hops? A big thanks to Steve and Tammie for getting this for me!!!!! Re-Rate: On a second and third tasting I noticed some spice flavor and the sweetness didnít effect me as much.
