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 canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís 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.

Clouded orange. Hoppy aroma, yet pleasing. Taste is ridiculously smooth for the style. Hops add to the taste but do not destroy the finish. Jolly good! Wait this beer isnít English. Uh....nice.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Enjoyed via 12oz can. Pours a light copper with medium to small white head. Nose is one of citrusy American hops, a wonderful change from some of the weaker examples of the style. The palate is a nice balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. In the end, the hops prevail, but not to a point that is out-of-style. Overall, a wonderfully creative and full-flavored American beer.

APPEARANCE: Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a large white head dissipates at relatively slowly. Large amount of sticky lacing. AROMA: Full aroma of malt, caramel and citrusy hops. FLAVOR: A lot more hops than your typical pale ale. Nice caramel malt backbone. I taste citrus and pine. Finishes with long mild grapefruit like hoppy bitterness. MOUTHFEEL: Medium body. Soft fizzy carbonation. DRINKABILITY: Flavorful and well balanced pale ale. I could drink a few of these in a night. Probably the best beer I have had in a can. NOTES: BBCSD-0902-ScottR

Can. Pours orangish brown with a decently thick white head. Excellent, long lasting lacing, line after each sip. Smells of beautiful pine/citrus hops. Flavor is an excellent mix of hops and a pleasantly astringent flavor, and almost a hint of soap.

jefcon (1775) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Hazy, deep orange color. Lively head leaves some lacing. A lavender soapy smell dominates the aromas, though a little citrus is present, too. Bitter, full palate. Soapy hops, grassy up front and finishing more acidic. Almost creamy. The value in this beer is the true hop character.

ttoadee (1412) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Pours slightly cloudy, tap like head. Great depth of body, very "full" beer. Hops and alcohol, while strong, do not overpower. Very well balanced beer.

Much hoppier than I remember it being the first few times that I tasted it. Really more of an IPA than a pale ale, which wasnít what I was looking for when I picked this up again. Pours a nice copper color with fairly low carbonation. Aroma is of huge centennial citrusy hops, as is the taste. Flavor is not overly complex whatsoever, displaying one-dimensional citrus hop taste with a mild malt backbone that doesnít intrude. Thatís really about it. A great beer when youíre in the mood for an IPA, a decent one when youíre not, and a horrid beer when you donít want hops. At least itís in a can :-)

Malty, bitter, caramely, delicious. Pretty complex for a pale ale, and a great little can. Godís gift to camping and the beach, at least while Sly Fox isnt widely distributed. Almost an IPA, and certainly more of an IPA than some so called IPAs.

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.
