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.

Pretty much an almost perfect american style pale ale; fruity, bitter, very tasty and refreshing. Great character, and tastes and smells like something you’d drink on a day in the sun.

(355mL can from Systembolaget) Pours medium amber with an average white head, and a little lace. Aroma has leafy green hops, peach, grapefruit, bit of tropical fruit, and a little more malty caramel sweetness than many APAs. Flavour has a reasonably substantial caramel core to the style and some sort of specialty malt character, Munich maybe? Of course fairly hoppy as well, grapefruit, leafy, lightly resinous, stone fruit, with the sweetness transitioning into a slightly piney, leafy, averagely bitter finish with some lingering toffee/caramel notes. Average but oily body with moderate carbonation. Probably not the freshest can of course, but still a nice APA. Drank at a party so will have to try again under less hectic conditions.

Big rocky white head, clear caramel color, malty caramel flavor to match it, aroma is mostly malty, bitters on the back end of the sip, some cascade flavors but not overly floral, easy drinkin, one can always invites another

Sweet Carmel, got a birthday cake thing to it (a grocery store cake), little to no citrus on nose. Late addition centennial hops are awesome but not dominating. Really solid, could put down a lot of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From 12oz can, 6-pack

Aroma: Good amount of "C" hops for American IPA/Pale Ale type smell, citrus with some pine

Appearance: Clear, Amber color, off-white frothy head

Taste: Light bitter, inline with pale ales

Palate: Nice dry finish, light body

Overall: Not a bad pale ale. The aroma fades pretty quick and after a few minutes, it begins smelling not so much like a Pale Ale - almost like wet newspapers. Still tastes fine, just the aroma fades quickly. Super clear, must be filtered to be that clear. Nice malt/hop balance. Some malts, but not too much.
