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.

Vir4030 (593) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2012 Clear tannish red out of a can with thick head. Pale ale aroma light beer and decent. Solid flavor but a bit roasty. Actually, quite roasty. Yuck.

BlackHaddock (6063) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
On-tap in The BrewDog bar in Barcelona with the RBESG guys on 9th July 2016. Amber pour with an off-white crown. The nose was a pleasant combination of malty molasses and citrus fruit notes: the taste was similar. Easy drinking beer in the Barcelona summer heat.

Zoret (270) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 17, 2016
De tirador a BrewDog Bar Barcelona. Cervesa un pel massa fosca per ser Pale Ale. Bon aroma ben balancejat amb afruitats que recorden al préssec, caramel i resina. En boca es encara més resinosa. Potent en aromes. Molt bona.

This beer is one of my go too beers, light enough for a hot day but no lacking in flavor. To me it is robust like an ipa, but without the dryness after. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (1152) - Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours clear copper with a large off-white head. Smells piney and citrusy. Taste is citrus and pine and malty sweetness. Medium-bodied with a supple texture and average mouth-carbonation, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale finishes with a soft hoppy bite.

mrjaxson (475) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Orange citrus aroma overwhelms but a little caramel sneaks through. The body is big and chewy, really large for the style. A good one for summer but strong enough year-round. Poured from a can (what else?).

12oz can - Pours amber with orange hint. white head. Good smelling brew with citrus fruit and grassy notes, and a bit of roasted malt. Flavor of a sourdough bread, pop of citrus, and hay. Subtle nuttiness, with some slightly sweet cereal grain. Bitter finish.
