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.

piscator34 (2370) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Can. Pale copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pale and caramel malts, white grapefruit, a bit of kitchen spice and booze. Spicy citrus upfront on the palate, backed by some substantial pale malt flavor. Medium bodied with a solid bitter finish. Very old school APA in terms of the hop-to-malt balance and bitterness level, but with a bit more refinement. Decent.

Pours clear red golden with good off white head. Aromas of bread and honey with hint of citrus and metallic notes. Smooth carbonation and medium mouth feel. Taste is toffee and Cereal with hint of citrus hops but not much. Medium sweet and light bitterness. An old can but I expected much more...

teamsale (213) - Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Can pours a clear orange with a two finger sand head and sticky lacing. Aroma is a wonderful floral woodsy citrus. The flavor is excellent and while initially seems quite muted, is actually just right for the style. Mild bitterness and a solid aftertaste finishes very well.

kaserov (281) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2016
Color ámbar claro, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media tirando a baja. Aroma a malta, lúpulo por un tubo y resina de pino. Sabor donde se aprecia la malta, pero prevalecen el lúpulo y ese carácter resinoso que ya se intuye a través del olor. Bastante amarga (casi más una IPA que una American Pale Ale, aunque comprendo por qué la catalogan como American Pale Ale). Muy disfrutable y compleja. Toca muchos ángulos interesantes y a la vez es fácil de beber. Pa repetir, desde luego.
