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.

(355mL can from Systembolaget) Pours medium amber with an average white head, and a little lace. Aroma has leafy green hops, peach, grapefruit, bit of tropical fruit, and a little more malty caramel sweetness than many APAs. Flavour has a reasonably substantial caramel core to the style and some sort of specialty malt character, Munich maybe? Of course fairly hoppy as well, grapefruit, leafy, lightly resinous, stone fruit, with the sweetness transitioning into a slightly piney, leafy, averagely bitter finish with some lingering toffee/caramel notes. Average but oily body with moderate carbonation. Probably not the freshest can of course, but still a nice APA. Drank at a party so will have to try again under less hectic conditions.

On draft. Amber color with one finger head. Grapefruit and tropical aromas. Taste has some pine in it. Over the tropical aromas. Very good sipping beer.

TyggaBrown (420) - NORWAY - OCT 20, 2014
Pretty much an almost perfect american style pale ale; fruity, bitter, very tasty and refreshing. Great character, and tastes and smells like something you’d drink on a day in the sun.

loco_gallego (139) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Ambrée orange clair. Mousse beige clair. Assez persistante, avec de jolis dépôts sur les parois. Très belle pale ale. Arômatique fruité, sucré-caramel, malt toasté. Houblonnage très présent, agrumes puis résineux. En bouche similaire, avec une amertume agrumes assez puissante en milieu de bouche puis s’estompe pour une belle longueur, plus sur le résineux en fin de bouche. Le maltage sur le toastage et caramel donne une belle rondeur malgré le puissant houblonnage pour une APA.

Vili (34) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2014
From a can 5 months to best before date. Clear dark amber appearance with solid white head. Little to none carbonation. Faint malty aroma with a hint of citrus. Oily malts and aggressive hops attack on the first bite, but aftertaste has only solid metal and bitter hops. Overall taste too malty and sweet, almost sugary. Needs more freshness but a good companion to long autumn evenings.

355ml can, amber color, with a beige head, mild floral citrus, leafy hop, peachy fruity nose, with a faint toffee, caramel, toasted malt accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a. Ice flowery leafy, citrus, grassy, piney hoppy character, with some cedary, faint pine bark, light caramel, toasted malt, faint toffee flavours, leading towards a good citrus, leafy, piney hop bitterness finish.

dfinney23 (1836) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Certainly a classic. Hoppy citrus, hoppy pine and hoppy caramel malt. Might be some hops in there, too.

AbouAli (88) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2014
En canette de 33cl Apparence : Orange-brun clair, mousse diminue vite avec une bonne persistance Arôme : nez très puissant de houblons états-uniens Goût : sensation puissante d’agrumes, plutôt floral et frais dans la bouche, présence du malt légère mais correcte pour une Amercian pale ale En bouche : l’amertume prend le pas sur le reste et dure très longtemps, accompagnée par le goût des houblons. Le malt n’est là que pour contrebalancer le reste. Belle rondeur malgré une impression d’amertume élevée

can @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear dark amber, thick bubbly 2" white head, cobwebs of lace. Nice aroma of hops. Taste is caramel malt that adds citrus hops midway through, both sides carrying each other to a medium finish. A solid brew, worth searching out.
