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.

A reliable classic, though many have since created more interesting varieties and variations. Quite straightforward and slightly heavier for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Denver airport. Pours Amber with a white head. This was a let down. Too malty with a soapy hop flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coachd (136) - Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Smells of honey malt sweetness, hops, and a grass-like earthy scent. Good, clean simple aroma. A little darker than your ordinary pale ale with a lot of white clingy foam. Tastes light and malty at first, then a sharp hop bite hits you. The after taste is clean and refreshing. This is not a style that lends itself to having a great palate, but still the palate is a bit weak and watery. This would be a great camping or float trip beer. Overall it is refreshing and just flavorful enough to distinguish itself from other canned beers.

Aroma is sweet, malty, hops. Appearance is a nice amber, white head. Taste is light, sweet malt, hops. Mouthfeel is light but nice, decent carbonation. Overall, pretty good.

grundsow (90) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Huuuge foamy head poured into glass. Odd experience drunk from a can, but a nice hoppy pale ale, just not the bitterness or intensity of an IPA. Good beer though.

Steasy66 (995) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Golden with big white head. Malty body for a pale ale but good hops to balance. Great go-to beer.

Bobblehead (54) - Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a golden color, white foam, frothy, light aroma of cheese, citrus, light body, average carbonation, nice light pale ale, not too bitter but plenty of flavor that doesn’t overpower.

Straight from can. Taste is bitter and lightly sweet. Slightly metallic. Aromas of grassy hops. Drinks pretty good on a boat.
