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.

Can to pint. Nice example of the style. Great summer beer. All I need is a boat. Pours golden clear yellow in color. Smells floral and clean. Very mild pale. Nice malt backbone and just enough hops to call it a pale.

djoeye (2162) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2015
Look; standing light tan foam, amber golden clear body, fluffy rings as lacing. Aroma; citrus, hops, grass, dust, bread. Taste; citrus, malts, hops, bread, syrup. Somewhat sticky. Finishes with hops and roasted malts. Not bad. Quite ok, especially along with grilled meat or hot salty spicy snacks. [33cl can abv6.5% B@Systembolaget BB260715]

RasmusOtt (1430) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2015
Can @ ølbutikken. Pours clear amber with an off white head. Aroma is pretty malty with notes of earthyness, sweet resin, caramel and some herby grassy hops. The taste is also very sweet and malty with notes of caramel, sweet resin, weak bitter hops and some oxidation. Would love to try fresh...

Can. Pours clear dark orange with a thick offwhite head. Aromas of malt, earthy notes, resin, citrus, hops. Taste is malty as fuck, citrus, dry, resin, orange peel, hops. I dont know how old this was, but my guess is pretty fucking old.

BierMeHoos (273) - Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2015
12 oz can. Appearance pours a deep copper, with a 2 finger thick head. Aroma is hoppy and malty. Taste is sweet, amber, decent bittering on the end but not overpowering. Palate is soft with less carbonation. Overall pretty good, you can definitely drink this any time.

deyholla (7635) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2015
On tap. Pours a clear orange with a gold hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has has citrus notes with light pine a hint of grapefruit and a backbone of grass and grain. Flavor is similar with a citrus and pine combination supported by grass, a touch of resin and light grains.

The original craft can! Love this beer. If ever I’m in doubt and need a good solid choice for staying or for leaving, this fits the bill.

kingaugusta (17) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Pours golden with a modest white head. Nose is a bit like an IPA with a bit of a hop bite and distinct pale-ale maltiness. Flavor is fairly simple but very good: moderately strong bittering hops balance perfectly with a sweet, almost candy-like malt and just a hint of warmth. Backside is smooth and down the middle. About as good as medium-gravity "normal" ales can get.

angelkostvo (808) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 28, 2015
Orange colour, off white head. Aroma of slightly caramel, grassy hops. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Light body, thin to oily texture, average carbonation. Good, I was just expecting more.

mfhennig (104) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2015
12 oz can, pours a nice amber color, nice off white head and nice lacing. Grassy, bready aroma. Flavor has a hint of citrus. Not really the style of beer I enjoy. This would probably be better on a hot summer day.
