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...

Fine malty aroma with a touch of cheese. Decent head and sheet lace. Dales is sweet and malty for a pale ale, with dashes of cherry and orange esters, and it closes with a hop tingle. Very good, and the best brew I have had from a can. Drewsi227 (16) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Pours a nice copper color, nice blend of pine hops, and citrus. Great in the can, better on draft ldg1413 (13) - USA - MAY 27, 2009
Possibly the most overrated ’indie’ beer, though that title probably still belongs to Sierra Nevada’s IPA. Unbalanced hops married with the skunkiness from a metal can.. not for me. brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Really? A can? This is my new favorite beer for the summer since I can take it to the neighborhood pool and it isn’t Miller, Coors or Bud... nice. Pours a copper/amber color and has the nice citrus, hops and pine flavor you would expect from a solid pale ale. Solid this pale ale is... tastey hoppy, grapefruit, malty and piney ale... and no tinny taste. Perfect for the summer.

What a great Pale Ale. Seems so strange out of a can. Full citrus aroma followed bu a burst of grapefruit and pine flavor. A hint of sweet followed by dry. As good as many better IPA’s. pbstevens (1) - USA - MAY 24, 2009 does not count
WOW! This is my new favorite pale ale! Great hops and nice alcohol content! dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Thanks lb4lb for this. Pours a pale orange with off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops well balanced with malt. Flavor is surprisingly smooth and complex. Quite a nice surprise out of this one, definitely a beer I want a bit more of. HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Can. Nice clear, copper color. Barely any carbonation. White head thins quckly. Good hop nose, citrus and a hint of pine mixed with honey. I was looking forward to all of those aromas hitting my palate, but the flavor profile doesn’t measure up quite as well. Taste was flat and unexciting. There is a strong malt beginning but the flavor was bland. Medium high hop bitterness lingers on the palate and warmth from alcohol is definitely present. The flavors do seem to blend a little better as the beer warms a little. kmyers8807 (176) - Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Can thanks to bitbucket! Cracked the can open, poured into glass. Aroma was of light hops, with the sweet hop and maybe a little fruity smell. The flavor was just the right blend of hops for a APA. Could have been better, but nothing to hate.
