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.

Golden colour with thin white head. Smells hops. The taste is quire hoppy too and rather fresh.There is something else in the taste but it is hard to identify. The palate is very straightforward, easy to drink. Quite bitter and astringent in the aftertaste. Overall a good pale ale.

Pretty good hop-forward pale. Light and drinkable. Not too bitter. Full citrus and pine aromas but a lighter flavor.

On draft. Caramel color minimal head when it got to me. Piney aroma. Taste is a moderate bready malt backbone with lots of piney/resinous notes. Mouthfeel was quite sticky. A very solid beer. Not fantastic, but definitely not bad.

Had to see whats up with the quality- can revolution-pours like the best of them-Aroma is as hoppy and malty as APAs get -flavor is a hop burst with mega malt follow-up ending with crisp carbonation and pleasant bitterness. Very surprised by the quality of this-if i had one suggestion, it would be a rounder hop profile to further balance the maltblast, thats it.

The best beer I think I’ve ever drunk from a can. Great hop aroma, attractive pale amber colour and tons of hop punch. Citrus pine and grapefruit melded with a delicious smooth malt background. Hugely drinkable hop fix.

16oz draft. Deep golden color with thin white head that disappears as you drink. Aromas of pine, bitter hops, and bready malts. Flavor profile follows the same. One if the more intense pale ales out there, not for the weak.

Light bee colour with an off-white head. Aroma of hop with some caramel and citrus as well as some apple and pear. Taste of hops with some burnt sugar, sweet apple and grapes. A finish of nice hop bitterness. Medium body but a full taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 At pivni in York, right up there with Odells. Expensive, but pay it. Hoppy, solid, perfect, truly awesome.
