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.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2009
First sipping out of the cold can, it was delicious in a pleasant hoppy but not overpowering sense. The smell is almost sweet, like grapefruit. The color is rich for a pale ale, more amber than golden. As the temperature went up, the real delicious flavors of the beer came out. This beer is excellent!

Can. Orange/amber pour with thin white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is dominated by pine resin and sweet malt. Taste is bitter up front with more pine and some citrus flavors. Nice maltiness as well, but the hops dominate. Medium mouthfeel with bitter finish. Very good beer.

2008 Can - Pours a dark orange with a large off white head...aroma is sweet and hoppy...flavour is piney and smooth, with a caramel finish and an astringent bittrness that lingers...mouthfeel was pretty bad, coats like dairy with little if any carbonation...also had a metallic quality that had little to do with the can, but still easy drinking and enjoyable...
