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 canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís 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.

Got to sample at a wine tasting. Interesting. Well done in a can ... who woulda thunk it! ;-) Hoppy & aromatic nose, yellow amber to slight orange color, okay head esp. for a can, good enough mouthfeel, med. malt tastes & crisp finish. Good job.

I will make this rating as short and sweet as possible. This beer is one of the best balanced pale ales available today; well balanced, easy drinking and, available in cans. My only complaint is that it isnít available locally.

Nice aroma of hops, very crisp without being overpowering. What I would consider to be a good level of carbonation, very fine in texture. Great hops flavor with some citrus notes (pink grapefruit, sans sweetness, maybe). Dry finish that leaves your mouth a little sticky.

Big can to glass. Pours crystal clear. Looks absolutely amazing. Off white head with an orange hue lasts a while with splotchy thick lace thatís almost decorative. Smells sweet with some grapefruit and citrus notes. Taste really is more IPA like than an average APA. Balanced throughout with the hops at the end and malt up front. Feels slightly chewy but slick. Awesome beer. First brewed in auburn just up the road a few miles. Great beer. Ill buy it again.

Vestlake (254) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours an orange, amber color with a two finger head. Aroma is citrus and piney, very pleasant. Taste is more hoppy than most pale alesís Iíve tried, but nice taste.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 23, 2010
Sweet caramelly malt backing serious bitterness, and a lot of hop flavour and aroma. Itís a nice beer, but I just feel the components donít really mesh, making a tasty but slightly confused pale ale.

straight from the can, so appearance rating is N/A... aroma is mostly pine hops with some grapefruit and make in the background. taste is mostly bitterness from some grapefruit rind and a little but earthy hops. really good beer.

Great beer; the first I've tried from this brewery. Pale but bordering upon ipa characteristics. Easy drinking while still keeping the hop profile(smell and taste) of an APA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
