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.

Still have a hard time buying canned beer but since this was on sale had to try it. Amber in color and heavy on the floral hop smells. The taste kind of put me off at first with the pine hop flavor but after a while it grew on me. Other than the intense floral and pine hop flavors the heavy malt is also notable. While not bad it is not something I would purchase again unless it is on sale.

Can... Light orange in color, small head that faded quickly. Malty, sugary aroma. Taste is the same. Light roasted malts maybe...sugary, light hops. Still well balanced. Good texture/body. Overall, at 6 percent alcohol pretty strong for a pale ale. It could be an IPA or something else. Overall good beer

Bright orange amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of flowers, hops, and carmel. Taste is hoppy with some caramel.

pours an orange honey color with a thick foamy white head. nice retention and lacing. aroma is of light malt, bread, cream soda, and apricot or peach. flavor follows suit with mych of the same. mouthfeel is a bit watery and lacks any co2 action.

Pours a nice opaque orange with a surprisingly dense head for a canned beer. Very nice balance of citrus hops (some mandarin) and sweet caramel malts. It has a bready aftertaste that I love, and a very refreshing flavor with a thick mouthfeel. Entirely satisfying - I’m very impressed, even though there isn’t really anything special or extraordinary about it besides the novelty of the can. Will be trying to get my hands on more Oskar Blues very soon!

This was the first beer that got me interested in the brewery. Something intriguing about a microbrew in a can. A pretty gold-colored, light tasting American Pale. One of my favorites, although the novelty of the can may subconsciously factor in.

A very good pale ale and I love that it comes in a can. Can go places that most craft beers can’t. Pours a dark golden color with a two finger white head. Mildly hoppy, easy drinking, and a nice clean taste. Only had one, but seems like it would be a great session beer. Very enjoyable.

Can from City Beer Store in SF. A nicely done pale ale, maybe the best you’ll get out of a can. Clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of C-hops as well as some malty sweetness. Flavor is sweet caramel malt and citrusy C-hops with a floral finish. I would like a little more sweetness to balance the hop bitterness, but it’s well-done overall. Nice on the palate, fairly full-bodied for the style.

Gingerman NYC draught. Clear and golden with a hint of orange. Nice delicate and laced head. A big american pale ale. I’m an IPA-man, but this is quite satisfying. Not over the top hoppy, just right and with a nice thick mothfeel.
