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.

Pours a golden color with an average head. The aroma is wonderful for a pale, piney citrus, & a little fruity. In fact I love smelling this beer. Taste is a great balance of malt & hops with the bitterness kicking in the end. Very high IBU for a pale & as hoppy as a pale ale can get.

On tap at Barleys Taproom in Greenville, SC. Dark orange in color with a thin white head. Strong hop aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor is great balance of malt and hops. Slightly fruity, with some citrus. Hoppy and moderate bitterness. This isnít as strong as IPA or DIPA, but itís not supposed to be. This is just a damn good, balanced, and flavorful Pale Ale that I wish I could drink on a regular basis back home.

12 oz can. Deep orange in color with an off white thick head. Big floral hop aroma with hints of citrus, pine, and caramel. The flavor is pretty much the perfect balance of sweet malt and bitter hops. This beer is medium bodied and has an active carbonation and a soft mouth feel. I love to see great beers being canned, the portability of cans are great, especially in the summer. Overall this beer is about as good as a Pale Ale can get in my opinion,

From a 12 oz. can at Coasters (but poured into a glass, of course). Dark orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, grass, and light pineapple. The aroma does fade quickly, however. Bitter, grapefruit hop aroma. It is still a pale ale and doesnít pack the punch that I really like from an IPA. But as far as a pale ale goes they donít get much better.

Hazy, deep orange color. Lively head leaves some lacing. A lavender soapy smell dominates the aromas, though a little citrus is present, too. Bitter, full palate. Soapy hops, grassy up front and finishing more acidic. Almost creamy. The value in this beer is the true hop characte

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Hoppy aroma. Very hoppy taste. Slightly malty palate. Overall, a quality and quite smooth brew, but overly bitter (let the past go, my friend).

Pours mostly clear orange, frothy beige head. Molasses and pine aroma, seems very thick. Taste is a great combination of rish toasted malt and bold hops. Very well balanced and finishes nicely.

Wow what a pale ale! Poured this one out of the can and into a pint glass. Although just as enjoyable for me from the can on a hot summers day. On the nose I get nice strong hops upfront with slight malt in there. Almost like an IPA. Medium bodied. A big american pale ale! Mouthfeel is great very smooth. On the palate I am getting a nice bitter hop flavor, slight malts, some citrus and floral notes there. Just an awesome APA. Widely availalbe and not a bad price either, especially for the 12 packs! Get it!

Not the first thing to amaze me by Oskar Blues, but it still amazes me to taste something so good come out of a can. Pours a hazy golden with a mild foamy white head. Nice hoppy aroma with a touch of malt. Medium body with a nice balance of sweet malts and citrus hops finished by a nice hoppy bite. This is what Iím taking pool side

I heard a lot about this beer from numerous sites around the Web, so I decided to give an entire case of 12oz cans a try. This is definitely one of the more solid APAs Iíve found, especially more recently. This pale ale pours a semi-cloudy golden color with an average-sized white head. The head left a generous amount of lacing around the glass. The nose features a big hop presence, along with notes of caramel, bread, grass, earth and wood. The body is medium in strength, but extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors consist of a big hop profile, but is balanced nicely with a solid caramel malt backbone. The body also features a huge amount of grapefruit and pine. The finish is quite bitter and a little dry. It also features a little fruity flavor, as well as some grapefruit and pine. Overall, this is a very nicely done and delicious APA. Iím glad I have an entire case of this to enjoy!
