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.

Initial aroma is slightly bitter with an earthy aroma. A nice rich flavor with hints of citrus and molasses. Finish is nice and hoppy but not overpowering. A unique and tasty brew.

Had from can on several occasions, also draft at BD Brum 8/5/14. Pours clear burnished gold/orange, white head lasts reasonably. Big citrus and resinous hop aroma, plus some notes of caramel malt and bread. Tastes moderate sweet pale and light caramel malt, pretty heft bitterness, lots of resinous, floral and orange grapefruit hop character. Medium body, oily, moderate carb, long bitter finish. Textbook, for me. Obviously this is big for an APA but it has a great balance of malt so it’s not as hoppy as an IPA.

canned, pours a thick light amber with no head at all, aroma of light malt with more hop presence then anticipated, flavor same as aroma, sweet malt up front, heavy on palate, with residual hop bitters, I would imagine that this would be good on a hot summer’s day strait from the can.

Can’t believe I’m just getting to this rating now...maybe because I knew it wasn’t a one-off purchase. Absolutely by far "thee" best beer I’ve ever had in a can. And this Pale Ale can challange anything in a bottle...not that it has to be in a bottle to be good. Definitely glass worthy...nice amber pour...frothy off-white head...smooth mouthfeel...nice hop character and malt balance...this is a staple in my fridge...goes in that cool can rack on the door!

12oz Can. Pours a medium copper with frothy head and deep lacing. Aromatic of hops mostly grassy and citrus. Taste is a wonderful blend of hops and malts just bitter and just sweet enough. Palate is medium light and the beer goes down well.

picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Poured from a can. Bright orange golden color. Frothy off-white head. Plenty of American citrusy hops in the aroma. Some flavor from the hops. A well balenced malt back bone followed by a crisp clean bitter finish that lingers a bit. Overall a delightful beer.

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.

I min mun smakar det IPA. Förstår inte riktigt skillnaden? Annars helt drickbar, men inköptes pga av besök från USA av IPA-fantast. Not my cup of tea, really...

Orange med høyt hvitt fluffy skum. Lukter malt og sitrus, litt syrlig i smaken. Medium kullsyre, god bitter ettersmak.
