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 canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís 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.

Can poured into a pint glass. A slightly cloudy beer with a creamy head that leaves gentle lacing. Strong hop aroma which is what I would expect when it says "a huge voluminously hopped mutha" on the can. Hops on the nose, hops in the mouth, but the malts deliver some balance. Thereís a bitterness that lingers but I expect that from a beer that delivers 65 IBUs. Itís not my favorite American Pale Ale, but itís certainly not a bad beer.

Orange citrus aroma overwhelms but a little caramel sneaks through. The body is big and chewy, really large for the style. A good one for summer but strong enough year-round. Poured from a can (what else?).

Cajun (245) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUN 26, 2016
12oz can - Pours amber with orange hint. white head. Good smelling brew with citrus fruit and grassy notes, and a bit of roasted malt. Flavor of a sourdough bread, pop of citrus, and hay. Subtle nuttiness, with some slightly sweet cereal grain. Bitter finish.

Oskar Blues Daleís Pale Ale is a nice example of the style but not a standout IMHO. Lightly hazy amber pour with a decent head. Low fruity aroma. Taste is malty with a pine background -- not a lot of floral or fruit notes. Daleís Pale is a decent go to brew.

This my 2nd favorite summer time active beer in a can behind Shift beer by New Belgium. This beer is a lot more hoppy than Shift. This beer as an awesome hop aroma and finish with a hearty rich middle.

HourGlass13 (538) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Finally a Pale Ale not going for full IPA zesty profile. Pours up a light golden color with a nice white head. Malts tastes like an old English ale with a bread skin and sugar background. Quite well balanced into the sweetness of malts. Itís also tea like with some resin and herbal notes to it.

GIJOE (1077) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Pours a golden amber. Moderate lacing. Nose a little piney, hints of citrus. Taste is crisp and clean grains and malts. A quality pale ale.

On tap. A beer that basks in its middle-of-the-roadness. Itís fine. Itís kinda hoppy. Itís perfectly alright for drinking at a bar or a ballpark or pretty much wherever. Itís not perfect -- itís too bitter and kinda boring -- but who can knock a beer for not rising above itís own normalcy?

Can from Appellation Wines Comely Bank. Pours clear amber. Cinnamon, pine resin, butterscotch. Big flavours, toffee, tropical fruit, bitter, loads of hops, long, spicy finish. Lush.
