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.

12 oz can. Pours an expected amber hue with little to no head. Initally, I was extremely disappointed with this, as served at fridge temperature it has almost no taste at all. As it warms up, however, a subtle caramel flavor combines with some piney hops. Every sip finishes with a small blast of alcohol. Decent, but I feel they could have done better.

Had kind of forgotten about this one, given its ubiquitosness on local shelves. Thanks to mctous for the reminder. Pretty red-orange in the glass. Smells intiially caramelly/malty, but hops lingering in the background. Nice, balanced flavor between the sweet malt and a generous dose of citric hoppy bitterness. Good job on this one...

Fine malty aroma with a touch of cheese. Decent head and sheet lace. Dales is sweet and malty for a pale ale, with dashes of cherry and orange esters, and it closes with a hop tingle. Very good, and the best brew I have had from a can.

Pours a nice copper color, nice blend of pine hops, and citrus. Great in the can, better on draft

Possibly the most overrated ’indie’ beer, though that title probably still belongs to Sierra Nevada’s IPA. Unbalanced hops married with the skunkiness from a metal can.. not for me.

Really? A can? This is my new favorite beer for the summer since I can take it to the neighborhood pool and it isn’t Miller, Coors or Bud... nice. Pours a copper/amber color and has the nice citrus, hops and pine flavor you would expect from a solid pale ale. Solid this pale ale is... tastey hoppy, grapefruit, malty and piney ale... and no tinny taste. Perfect for the summer.

What a great Pale Ale. Seems so strange out of a can. Full citrus aroma followed bu a burst of grapefruit and pine flavor. A hint of sweet followed by dry. As good as many better IPA’s.

Thanks lb4lb for this. Pours a pale orange with off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops well balanced with malt. Flavor is surprisingly smooth and complex. Quite a nice surprise out of this one, definitely a beer I want a bit more of.

Can. Nice clear, copper color. Barely any carbonation. White head thins quckly. Good hop nose, citrus and a hint of pine mixed with honey. I was looking forward to all of those aromas hitting my palate, but the flavor profile doesn’t measure up quite as well. Taste was flat and unexciting. There is a strong malt beginning but the flavor was bland. Medium high hop bitterness lingers on the palate and warmth from alcohol is definitely present. The flavors do seem to blend a little better as the beer warms a little.
