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
Light copper brown, small white head. Flowery American hops in the nose. Medium-bodied, good malt profile with some hoppyness. Balanced American pale ale, which has some character of IPA.

brokensail (15444) - Dublin, 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.

Can. Slight hazy amber/orange with a fantastic thick white head & good lacings. The aroma is of bitter hops & sweet malts. The mouhfeel is filling. Good hoppiness that lastes throughout. Fruity/flowery & piney with a light malty balance. Soft carbonation. Lasting end. Very nice can of beer!

Copper colour. Low carbonation – nice one. Resiny, woody c-hops in the aroma with crystal malts and a hint of florals. Well-balanced body shows toasty notes and floral/citric hoppiness. Fairly bitter example.

bhensonb (13731) - 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.
