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.

a old can from a very cold fridge does not hold up any better than an old keg from a place that does not rotate kegs very often, but still quite tasty when stale

Can from Broudy’s Liquor. Poured dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid smooth resin hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. Standout drinkable brew in a can.

Koelschtrinker (10643) - 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

imdownthepub (10210) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2009
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.
