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.

I picked up a 24 oz can of Dale’s Pale Ale last night. It was great as always. Dales poured into a pint glass with a dark golden hue and two fingers of cream head. The taste is smooth with some strong hop character. Dale’s is nothing out of this world, but it is solid. Anytime Dale’s is available I will pick it up in lieu of a BMC. If you haven’t already give it a try.

This would be a good beer to get someone started in craft beer. Not much up front followed by slight bitter on finish. Easily drinkable for 6.5 ABV.

Can from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Pretty dark for a pale ale! Big grapefruit piney aroma, quite sweet. Taste is grapefruit, lemon with a decently bitter finish. Very good.

FBoekman (58) - SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2014
Hemlig doft. Mycket skum. Ljusbrun klar. Ganska besk försmak med lite bränd eftersmak. Inget speciellt, men ok. En av de berömda knu**rufs-burkarna.

Pours clear orange with a strong bone white head from a can. Nose has caramel-like sweetness and fruit, particularly grapes/raisins. Mouth has in addition hints of pine and hints of something like licorice. Body is quite full for an IPA with slick texture and average carbonation. A long sweet and bitter finish.

On draft at Denver airport. Pours Amber with a white head. This was a let down. Too malty with a soapy hop flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells of honey malt sweetness, hops, and a grass-like earthy scent. Good, clean simple aroma. A little darker than your ordinary pale ale with a lot of white clingy foam. Tastes light and malty at first, then a sharp hop bite hits you. The after taste is clean and refreshing. This is not a style that lends itself to having a great palate, but still the palate is a bit weak and watery. This would be a great camping or float trip beer. Overall it is refreshing and just flavorful enough to distinguish itself from other canned beers.
