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.

12oz can. Dark copper with a good head. Hoppy aroma with some pine and citrus. Sweet, caramel laden flavor, with minty and piney hops. Medium bodied. For this amount of alcohol, some more hops would be good, but for a pale, this works out alright. This base could yield a great IPA with more hops though... well, maybe its still a little too sweet.

12 ounce can purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma has a bit of piney C-hops present along with some crystal maltiness. Lightly metallic. Smells like holiday lights, if that makes any sense to anyone. A nice aroma. Transparent copper body with a medium off-white/yellow head. Decent lacing present. Starts herbal and a bit spicy before it it becomes a little husky with some of the crystal malts. This quickly becomes more hoppy to finish with more of the grapefruity, piney, PNW C-hop flavors. I’d say this is pretty flavorful, rather drinkable, although rather straight forward. A nice canned beer that would be good for camping.

(11.22.08) 12 oz. can: Bright orange pour with a ton of carbonation that settles down to a medium-sized, white head. Nose is loaded with citrusy hops, along with brown sugar and pine. Taste is very hoppy as well, balanced out by some caramel malt. Medium-full mouthfeel, which is saying something for an APA. Outstanding within style.

12 oz. can Poured a rich copper color with medium head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Taste is well balanced between the rich malt and subtle hop finish. Great Pale Ale, surprised it is not rated higher??

I thought this was really great for a basic american pale. Probably a little less watery than most of its kind. The taste was smooth and hoppy and not too big to the point where i couldnt finish the sixpack. Brownie points for cans, if its really better doesnt matter I just like it.

On tap ESPN Zone Denver. Silky caramel malt, sweet, lots of tropical fruit with a medium bitter finish. slightly more malty, more fruity, and a little less bitter than the 5-Barrel I tried in the same sitting.

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Can. Pours bright orange with a medium-sized, white head. Aroma of flowery hops, and some lemon essence. Flavor features a fruity, sweeter flavor at first, before quickly giving way to a bold, citrusy, hoppy finish. This brew is smooth, well-blended, but a touch average. In my opinion, it borders too much with many west coast IPAs.

Thanks BOLTZ7555 for the brew. Pours a clear cooper from the can. Almost no head or carbonization. A little citrus hoppy aroma and some bitterness. A solid American Pale Ale. I have just been spoiled by fresh Alpha King.

It comes from a can and tastes amazing. Hoppy but in a very clear and crisp way. A great portable beer.

BeerBunker (965) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Not too heavy on the carbonation. Aroma is of hops, some citrus, and an earthy note I can’t quite put my finger on. Taste is bitter hops up front, with citrus and grass to follow. Hoppiness dies quickly, leaving a bland taste in the mouth. Tasty, but lacking something to really make it something to drink again..
