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.

neongolden (1148) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
(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
