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.

General66 (203) - Streator, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2010
12 ounce can that I received in a trade at Dark Lord Day 2010. I have read quite a bit about this brewer and was pretty excited to finally get to try something by them. Poured a deep amber color with a medium amount of carbonation and a one finger width white frothy head that stuck around for a while. The aroma was pleasant but was a bit bland for an APA. It consisted of fresh hops, pine and some light citrus. The taste was along the same lines but had a great crisp hoppy bitterness that made me want more and more. Finished with a nice bitterness. I really wish I could have this on a daily basis... this would be a perfect brew to have in a cooler at a tailgate or any other summer activity!

Light earthy floral aroma. Pours clear gold amber with a long lasting thick foamy white head. Smooth medium bodied. Bitter edge on the finish. Earthy. Grassy. Not bad.

From a can at drinkstore. Big hop aroma for a pale ale but big malt flavours balnce it well. Really good beer.

dambor (338) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2016
Pours dark orange with medium to large head. Aroma: biscuits, oranges, lemon, with a pine tree in the background. Taste is on the malty side, but nicely counterbalanced with pine tree hops. Palate is medium. Very solid, very drinkable, very good.

thick, very oily, caramel, light pine, hop is a bit muted. Taste is bitter oily orange peel, grapefruit, some yeast, not very outspoken, light caramel. Bit oily. Okay, nothing exciting, decent standard basic beer for a brewery.

Diogans (8) - Funchal, PORTUGAL - APR 28, 2016 does not count
On the nose has resin, melon, fresh fruit. It has a medium high body of a sweet caramel with a hearthy, meaty feeling to it. So umami. Perfectly balanced with a bitter finish.

Nice aroma of west coast hops. Piney, good. Taste is hops and golden malt. Pine and resin, but not overly bitter. A smooth finish for a pale ale. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

davidezdonz (224) - , HONG KONG - APR 25, 2016
A 12 fl oz can with a canned on date of 20th November 2015 and poured into a Mikkeller pint glass. It poured a clear copper colour with a less than two finger slightly off white head that dissipated slowly to a nice puffy layer and left nice stringy lacing. Aromas of a lot of pine and wood with a hint of citrus orange peel zest. Tastes orange citrus with a bitter piney hop in the background and honey caramel malts. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this was a decent pale ale and easily drinkable.

Smoothsippin (47) - Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a light hazy brown with a white head. Nose is a mix of sweet, pine, a little bready. Subtly sweet mouthfeel then the hops kick in but mix nicely with the malts. Not overpowering or too bitter. Nice lingering finish. Good pale ale.
