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.

Aroma ligeramente dulce y espuma densa y duradera. Sabor lupulizado equilibrado y con amargura que tarda en desaparecer de la boca. Le van muy bien unos frutos secos y queso semi. No deja de sorprenderme la buena calidad de este producto envasado en lata. Perfecta para consumir en grandes cantidades.

12 oz can, pours a nice amber color, nice off white head and nice lacing. Grassy, bready aroma. Flavor has a hint of citrus. Not really the style of beer I enjoy. This would probably be better on a hot summer day.

Can. Pours a light golden color, with a fair head. Aroma of mild hops with grain and light fruit. Taste of hops, grain, bit of fruit and malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, has a crisp, clean feel and nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer.

Aroma is grass, hay, grains, vegetable, light hops. Taste is grass, pine, plus a dry Ashy Aftertaste. Appearance: slightly more color than a typical yellow pale ale, above average white head. Medium carbonation. Not sure why this gets such high marks. It seems very pedestrian to me. Not even pedestrian....like a pedestrian with a limp.

Draft @ RDU Indigo. Slightly hoppy aroma. Dark amber color, with white head. Pretty nice lacing. Very pleasant bitterness, a little fruitiness. Med bodied. Overall, a very nice, drinkable pale ale!

Drank from a can which didn’t harm the flavour at all. Nice hoppy flavour with a fruit background.

VeinAle (112) - Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2015
Smells great, grassy, caramel, hop aromas. First can had a violent head on it. More bitter than sweet on the mouth. A fine APA.

Can from utobeer. A classic. Good drinking. Sweet, malty and a sensible strength. Not sure who Dale is but he doesn’t mess around.
