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.

I don’t know why i haven’t rated this beer but it is the best pale ale in a can. Great beer on par with all the other Oskar Bliues.

Out of a can - this beer is the best canned beer I have ever had. Perfect beach beer. Hoppy, not too sweet, slightly bitter. Definitely an IPA and not a Pale Ale.

can into a glass-FIRST DRINK-Unimpressed, Iliked the look and the aroma, flavor is harsh and I couldn’t help but taste that can flavor. HALF GLASS- Mellowing and starting to enjoy, although tastes more like an IPA than a pale ale. FINISH-ended very nicely, this beer did a total 180, changed my opinion of craft beer in a can, but still prefer in a bottle.

It poured a hazy dark orange-golden liquid with a big foam that stayed a long time and left a nice lacing. It had a fresh aroma of grasy hops and citrus. Very nice! Just as the other two beers it was very smooth. It tasted sweet with some caramell and grassy hops. Not as good as it smelled but still nice.

I’m trying to think of the last time I had a good beer out of a can..hmmm that’s right never. They always have this horrible can flavor to them. Let’s see how this one tastes. The pour is really nice, good white head, lots of lacing, carbonated copper body. Aroma is mostly floral and citrus. Now for the taste. Nicely bitter, good orange citrus rind flavors, balanced nicely by the malts. Not even a tinge of metallic aftertaste. Really good pale ale, more bitter than most, I’d think of this as a good light IPA.

Hops, piney and itrusy, on the nose, some caramel. The appearance is very true to the style, amber coloor, white head. The flavor is caramel, orange peel, citrus. The finish is bittering from citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel, maybe a little thin. Decent Pale Ale.

$15.50-12 pack in NJ,Witty’s-love the price on this one...nice amber pour, big fizzy head..flavors of big hops, citrus, caramel malts and more hops to finish..I personally feel that Pale Ale’s should not exceed 50 ibu’s (stone,sierra,flyingdog) or they should just be classified an IPA..Dale’s at 65 ibu and 6.5abv is 110% ipa territory...I wonder why oskar blues doesn’t make a regular ipa? anyway this beer is still great, pale ale, ipa whatever, for this price and taste I’ll be drinking these babys..

sorry, this is not pale ale. ipa for sure. but don’t get me wrong. it is wonderful. a daily drinker for sure. not a huge beer, but certainly no weakling either. i oddly rate this higher than the average for great divide fresh hop. that is a far better brew. huh???

On tap at Nashville’s Music City Brew Festival. Amber body with a nice white head. This one was one of the better pale ales I had at the festival. The flavor has a great balance of pale and amber malt with a nice pine hop presence for balance.
