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.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet and quite hoppy, and so is the flavor too - the hops is mainly aroma hops, not much bitterness.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 Can, 2007-08-31
Canned is still good (the can to go for), but looses the freshness it has on draught, the body, the hopping.

Draught at Five Point restaurant, NYC, 2006-12-29, 7-4-7-5-15
Hazy amber color; thin creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, with some fruitness (oranges). Some malt flavor, with sweet caramel, and good hopping with some resins. Good, balanced.
