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 into shaker pint. Aroma is absolutely wonderful. Pours a darker orange/yellow with a great head. Taste is textbook, perhaps THE pale ale to beat. Definitely picking up a sixer if I go camping.

Beer 4 of the US tour. The perfect refresher for 29 degree weather in LA. Not an overly hoppy nose but great hoppy flavour coming through. The malt profile is just enough to provide some backbone but also just enough to let the hops shine. This would be a go to summer beer if I could get it back home!

Poured from a can. Copper orange hue with no haze, foamy white head that sticks nicely as I drink. Mild Carmel sweetness with citrus & pine in the flavor. Some apricot in the nose. Moderate dryness that lingers.

RafeAU (552) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Can in LA. Lasting creamy white head. Big hoppy aroma, moderate bitterness, it’s an APA not an IPA but it’s close! Fresh, fruity, citrus and some grassy hops. Really nice refreshing summer beer, but the alcohol catches up on this big can. Great APA.

Drjohnrock (592) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce can at Southern Culture On The Skids concert at the Southgate House Revival on May 9, 2015. Medium to dark amber hue, nice citrus/hop nose, good bittersweet flavor with lots of fruit and some complexity. Could stand a little stronger hop profile but this is a very flavorful brew.

The aroma is full of fresh hops, and some sweet malt. As a pale ale, it has a slightly thin mouthfeel, but has a clean bitter hop finish

From 12oz can to tulip glass. Pour is a nice red-orange with a thick off white head. Nose is rich hops, malt, bready, pine, touch of caramel. Taste is medium bodied, bitter with sweet notes coming through. Awesome mouthfeel, almost a juicieness to it with several flavors. Awesome beer

Tomg (5) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 18, 2015 does not count
Warning: this does not taste like most pale ales. It is more like an IPA. I guess that’s why i like it since those are my favorite category, I also love that this comes in a can: far more portable and better environmentally.

Can: Amber in color with a white head and some lacing. The aroma is pine and citrus with a lite bitterness in the taste.
