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.

12oz can. Semi-opaque orange/amber pour with a big beige head. Sweet malt aroma with some floral hops and notes of bread. Sweet and bready malt flavor up front with a bitter hop finish.

Thanks to Homerwants beer for sharing a couple cans. This brew is an orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and citrus along with a touch of malt. Medium body with flavors of floral hops, fresh citrus and clean malt. The finish is moderately bitter hops that linger for awhile atop a decent malt base. A good straightforward APA overall.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2009
12 oz. can. Pours a hazy, orangish brown with a small, white head. Sweet malt, a touch of pine, honey, and an odor I just can’t quite place in the nose. Medium carbonation with a medium-rich mouthfeel. Sweet malt, honey, caramel, pine, and a touch of resin on the palate. Good balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Medium-short finish with some lingering bitterness. Overall an excellent pale ale that isn’t over hopped.

Probably one of my favorite pale ales. Great sweet tart of hop and malt balance. Almost orange body. A good ol’ reliable.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2009 Pours a nice thick yellow. Very nice aroma of citrus. Clera and typicale taste of a pale ale. Not much of an aftertaset though. Overall a very good beer.

im not really a big fan of pale ales because they always make me want something more intense. this one surprised me in that i really enjoyed it. lots of hops yet it is pretty smooth.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Wonderful aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is also nice, kind of like the aroma, but a bit metallic from the hops. The sweetness from malts are massive. There is virtually no aftertaste though, which affects the otherwise high grade.

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...
