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.

(Can) Pours a lightly cloudy orange body with a moderate creamy off-white head. Aroma is bursting with orange and grapefruit, along with rich malts. The flavor has a nice of breadiness and hops with a bitter finish. Not your typical APA, or canned beer.

Leighton (11841) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2009
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.

Clear amber body topped by medium beige head. Aroma is mild sweet, earthy, pine, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, earthy, pine, caramel, light spice. Medium body. As others have noted, impressive that this comes in a can.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 16, 2010
A: Poured from the can into my Russian River pint glass. The beer is clear and amber in color with a thin white foam that leaves some lacing on the glass. S: The smell is a nice combination of citrus hops (with a mild piney quality) and quite a bit of sweet, bready malt. There is also a mild honey smell. T: The taste is fairly comparable to the nose. The hops are certainly present, but not overwhelming. The citrus flavors are dominant in the beginning, followed by a sweet malt flavor, and a bitter finish. M: The beer is fairly well carbonated and the body is medium, but on the fuller side for a pale ale. D: A good example of a Pale Ale. Not overly hoppy nor malty, but a good balance of the two.

bhensonb (11491) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Can from Wine Cellar. Resiny aromas. Clear amber color with a very impressive tan/beige head. Full bodied with very creamy carbonation. Flavor is more citrus grapefruit over evergreen, with a backdrop of roasted caramel. Still, this is all about the hop. It’s not balanced. It’s an IPA in disguise. Maybe an IIPA in disguise, based on the bitterness. Evergreen seems to return in the finish. Everyone should have one of these once in awhile just to get back to roots. Whoo. It’s not in the same class as the best, complex ales, but it is a winner in the APA class.

Christian (11274) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2007
Amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Big hoppy aroma, mostly pine, with some peach, orange, grass, and furthermore some toffee, malt and bread. Sweet and malty with enough bitterness and hop flavour to embarras most IPAs. Lasting grapefruit and pine aftertaste. Big and creamy mouthfeel.

thewolf (11234) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2007
Can, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours a wonderful clear red-orange with a small creamy yellow-ish head. Aroma is heavily fruity hoppy - apples, peaches, grapefruit. Low carbonation. Flavour is very hoppy with some biscuit and caramel. Quite bitter, but there is a fruity sweetness behind it. Very nice - I could have liked a little more sparkle in the carbonation.
