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.

330ml can (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Bitter and Sour 2008)
Amber copper, tiny head. Citrus fruity hoppy aroma. Very lemony taste. Not lemonade, lemon. Very hoppy, grassy. Apart from that, or because of that, it’s pretty dull.

Tinned, Pasteurised, 355ml courtesy of Casey (Doppelganger). Gold to amber with white head. Simply surprising, a beer in a can that tastes this fresh, it cannot be, not when you have been brought up with the dross that is UK tinned beer. This is bright, freshly hoppy, grassy, orange citric and very pleasant. Dry and refreshing. Many thanks Casey for this and for showing me how a tinned beer could be.

(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.

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.
