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.

19.2 oz can partly poured into a pint glass. A: Pours a copper color with good clarity. The head is a three finger offwhite shade. I really like how much lacing it leaves on the glass in particular, not to mention the fluffiness of the head itself. S: The aroma is what you’d expect, grassy/piny Cascade hops and caramel malts. Hoppiness is amplified when inhaled directly from the can. T: This is quite bitter to start. The leafy, herbal hop bitterness really comes through, though perhaps with not as much actual hop flavor as I’d like. Bitterness seems to cool off near the back end, creating something that’s pleasantly drinkable instead of oppressive. M: While the opening bitterness suggest this could be resiny and harsh, the finish is crisp and dry enough to scrub it away. Nice body and carbonation here, though I still think the back end is a little rough. O: You know you have something pretty good on your hands when 19.2 oz. seems like the right size for this one. Word of warning though - this one might be too bitter for newbs.

BlackHaddock (6123) - 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 (294) - 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 (1155) - 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 (477) - .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?).
