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.

sawbuck (251) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2014
Mild aroma of hops. Nice deep yellow cover with a tan head that had lasting power. Nice sweet malt up front, quickly followed by a bitter hop bite. Malt has roasty characteristics. Bitterness is firm with a long aftertaste...not too overpowering. Not bad.

Small head leaves little retention but a good deal of lacing. Orange and lemon flavors with a sweetness on the finish that is very enjoyable.

rodbod (6) - SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2014 does not count
From a can, on the train. Great balance between bitter hops and weighty malt. Superb texture, creamy yet not remotely cloying, very clean in the finish. Hop fruitiness comes through too, but it’s predominantly bittering hops.

1/27/14 12oz can into tulip. Pours a honey color with one finger lathery head. Smell is pine and citrus with a bready backbone. Thin carbonated mouthfeel. Taste is hops and citrus peel. Overall, easily drinkable and refreshing. Would be a outdoorsy beer. 4/5

Slightly hazy copper color with a med head and plenty of lacing. Lemon peel, caramel malt, pine, floral hops. Very balanced and pleasant. The quintessential APA.
