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.

Can. Earthy moderately sweet caramel aroma. Amber body, off-white head. Flavor is very similar to aroma, very malty and caramel, well-balanced. High quality apa.

Pours cloudy copper with small white head. I had heard about this brew but only now found it available here in Houston. What a great concept -- a good pale ale in a can for Mt. Biking, camping, etc. Aroma is fruity apples and nice malt. Some citrus in there too. Absolutely delicious and refreshing for a plain old pale ale in a can. I could drink this everyday. Nice alcohol kick that is well hidden too. This will turn into one of my favorites when camping, hiking, etc. (Easier to pack out than bottles). Count me in as a fan.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2008 Clear copper; shy head. Fruity aroma - passionfruit? Medium body. Hoppy; borderline metallic. Unusual. I like this so far but I will try a few more cans and see if it gets better.

Received as bonus from Beerlando in a recent trade. Dirty golden pour with a half inch head. Good malty flavor right away with pleasant mild hoppy aftertaste. Very good, hope to get a chance to try this on tap someday.

Tap at Liars Club. One of the best pale ales out there , hands down. Great aroams of malts and hops, and very balanced flavor profile a swell. Very smooth with toffee accents that then finishes with more of a fruity, estery note. Smooth. I agree that the carbonation could be a bit more lively, that seems true even for the kegs.

illidurit (2286) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 10, 2008
12 oz can poured into a nonic. Nice clear copper color, probably too dark to be called pale. Moderate ecru head leaves some sticky lace. Aroma is apples, grapefruit, and caramel. Initial flavor is all hops, with a sharp citrusy bite, followed by a sublime caramel finish which then melds into a residual bitterness. Very robust for a pale ale. Mouthfeel is a little undercarbonated, but the body has a nice heft to it and it‘s very drinkable.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 7, 2008
On tap. Standard clear copper color with a short white head. Decent lacing. The aroma was light citrus and thin malt. The flavor was malt and earth and light citrus hoppiness. Light, easy drinking body. Not bad, just not anything truly special.

I had this in a bar out of a can and I think it was a bit cold. That being said, the hops come across as grapefruit and pine. It is very thin. Even so I thought it was quit refreshing and over all enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2009 Can. Hazy orange. Nice long lasting foam. Smells caramel and hops. Has a fresh hop taste to it. Refreshing! Very smooth beer.
