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.

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.

Had a pint on tap at Mudville 9. This is a great APA right here. Pours a nice yellow-amber with a medium white head. Aroma of bitter hops a sweet malts. Flavor has a complex bitterness which is slightly offsett by the European malts. Highly drinkable and delicious.

Koelschtrinker (16806) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Feinhopfiger Antrunk mit vergleichsweise intensiver Bitterkeit. Im Mittelteil relativiert sich die Bitterkeit dann doch etwas, das Bier wird süffiger, dennoch ist die Hopfenbitterkeit zeitweise beißend. Grasig, Zitrusfrüchte. Zum Ende ausgewogener, die Hopfigkeit ist nun angenehm. Wirklich gut! 7/10/11/12/7/12

Can at home, thanks to James, 03/04/15. Clear amber golden with a well appointed cream covering. Nose is caramel, straw, floral, bread dough, light hops. Taste comprises sweet malt, caramel, melon, bread dough, orange pith, toffee. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with earthy hop bitterness. Decent APA of the malt lead variety, good balance.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2007
Can. It poured a bit unclear, with a nice, golden-orange color and a medium, lasting, dense off-white head. Quite lively carbonation. The pour released these lovely, piney, resiny and citrusy aromas, and having a more thorough sniff, the maltyness also finds it’s way up your nose. The flavor is quite dominated by all the hops, with its citrus and pines, but as in aroma, a nice maltyness is also present. Quite sweet, with some beef-stock as well. The beer has a firm body, and that bitter astringency feeling that the hops give. The finish is long and bitter, and quite heavy on the resiny flavors. And the lacings are nice too.

I have no doubt this is the best canned beer I’ve ever tasted, it’s really enjoyable, and it’s definately a beer I could down a few of. Nice work Oskar! (071012)
