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.

Pours golden brown with a thin white head. Well balanced with a great hop flavor. A huge hop aroma away from being an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a copper gold, with nice lacing. This pale has a citrus green pine scent. The flavor is of melon, orange and pine hop resin. Very refreshing . More like an IPA in a lot of ways. Cheers!

Can. A- Caramel, malty, doughy. A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head. T- Caramel, malty, piney, medium bitterness, bready. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- This can had about 8 months of age on it so that undoubtedly mellowed it out and made the caramel come through more, as it wasn’t near as piney as expected, nor was there really any citrus notes. Pretty well balanced and a solid beer, but I don’t know if I would agree with the claim that this is the best canned beer out there.

On tap at Whole Foods. Pours a clear dark copper with golden hues when backlit. Head settles quickly to white lacing and a trace of bubbles on meniscus. Aroma is bright hop bitterness, bready malts and ale sweetness. Flavor is same with a pleasant citrus sharpness, with notes of blood orange. Medium bodied, clean finish.
