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.

Can. Golden brown with a white foam. Aromas are toasted multigrain with dusty yeast and lemon. Woody pine with grapefruit and herbs. Flavours are tropical fruit with woody pine and bready yeast. Dry to finish. Decent but not great.

Can. My first from this brewery. Slightly hoppy. Bitterness builds up leaving a gentle bitter aftertaste.. Not as powerful as I expected but a reasonable if not very exciting example of this style.

adasko (874) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
ładny cytrusowy aromat, trochę owoców tropikalnych. Piwo mętne, kiepska piana, ciemny bursztyn. W smaku raczej wytrawne, fajna goryczka. Dość krótka ale zdecydowana. Orzeźwiające, bardzo pijalne.
