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.

This pours a semi-clear amber color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is hoppy with a touch of bready malts. The taste has hint of pine, citrus, and grapefruit giving it dry taste. Very tasty and well made, a nice flag ship beer.

johndoughty (4217) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Can. My first from this brewery. Slightly hoppy. Bitterness builds up leaving a gentle bitter aftertaste.. Not as powerful as I expected but a reasonable if not very exciting example of this style.

adasko (890) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
ładny cytrusowy aromat, trochę owoców tropikalnych. Piwo mętne, kiepska piana, ciemny bursztyn. W smaku raczej wytrawne, fajna goryczka. Dość krótka ale zdecydowana. Orzeźwiające, bardzo pijalne.

12fl oz can poured into a pint glass. Deep bronze with a fair amount of off white head. Aroma is honey graham crackers. Flavor is not much different, heavy on the sweet malt. Decent, quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
