4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #973 - February 13, 2014 - Love canned IPAs and APAs - great golf beers and camping beers. $18.69 CAD for 6 355mL cans at Co-op. Aroma is a spicy, grapefruity eruption right out of the can into the pour. Pours a good amber colour with a perfect sticky white foam, spotty lacing, decent retention. Medium carbonation, mild-medium alcohol warmth. Palate is a decent lemon grapefruit citrus hit, with some sticky pine resin notes, and a comfortable ABV - supah crushable. This will probably be my golf course 6er for 2014, pending availability in good olí Redfordland.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured out of a can into a snifter. Canned on 27-Nov-2013.
Slight hop aroma, mostly florals with an inkling of cinnamon or spice making an unexpected showing. Maybe Iím an idiot. As the carbonation declines, so does the aroma. No alcohol detected. Pale malt peeks through. Would have benefited from just a touch more hop florals.
Crystal clear, golden, half-inch straw-colored head slowly dissipates and eventually disappears, although lacing remains on the glass. Seriously though, I can see what Iím typing through my beer. Sure, itís distorted and golden, but I can see it!
A consistent taste from the time it hits your tongue until you swallow. Medium hop bitterness complimented by a solid caramel malt presence. I think I detect a hint of dust, but maybe my wife needs to learn how to do the dishes better. Hop bitterness wins out at the end and stays.
Light-medium bodied. Surprisingly dry. Salivation kicks in with the first sip and leads to a coating on the tongue that reminds you of the beer for a while after youíre done.
This was my beer for the Super Bowl this year. After four it made my mother-in-law much more tolerable. Itís a solid pale ale. Most American pales seem to over-hop in an attempt to leach off the popularity of their cooler brother, IPA. Daleís Pale Ale seems to stay true to the style, and for that Iím thankful.

Poured from a 12oz can. Aroma is pine, tropical fruit, and sweet caramel. Flavors are pine, citrus, light pepper, and sweet caramel. Solid balanced beer, more of an Ipa than a pale. Another great beer from Oskar blues!

This is easily one of my go to beers. I love the pale ale style and I always have a six pack in my fridge.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can - solid pale - herbal nose - low biscuit malt impact which is surprising considering the full body and malt sweetness - must be the heavy herbal hoppiness - smooth drinker with great bitter kick to finish. Nice. Could do with more fizz but thatís not a deal breaker.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home. Pours cloudy marmalade orange with white lasting head. Looks good. Nose is all malt, caramel sweetness. Not much hops. Flavour is all smooth toffee, balanced nicely with mild bitterness. A little watery on finish. Needs more hops as promised on the tin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Heavily malty on the nose, with some earthy and subtle citrus notes.Not particularly enticing. Palate is fairly light but not thin. A little transient. Toffee malt is predominant flavor partnered with some pine and grass. Rough, scratching bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sweet malty aroma. Burnt orange color with a decent head and good lacing. Surprisingly dry with pronounced hoppy notes. Clean, long drying finish. An outstanding example of a Pale Ale.

Can- I love cans. I think it has hop and malt. Good mountain pale ale with good flavorful character. I recommend this brew to any one that enjoys a good pale ale.

Love this pale ale. Great color and aroma, not too bitter with good citrus to balance the malt. I would say a step above in flavor compared to most pale ales.
