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. Pours a clear copper color with a medium frothy off white head. The aroma is very hoppy and pine. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a also a strong hop and light malt finish. Just like the description big brew in a little can. A great American Pale Ale from Oskar Blues.

Absolutely a beautiful copper color. I wasn’t expecting this... I guess just cause it’s in a can I was expecting a watered down looking beer. Nice piney hops aroma. Flavor, as the aroma, is definitely intense at the beginning but really mellows as you drink it. It’s almost a roasty nutty bitterness. Simply awesome

Can. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick off white head. Immediate caramel aroma fills the air after the can is cracked, some mild hops present as well. Flavor is bitter up front with a sweet caramel tasting middle and then finishing with a mild floral hop taste. Leaves a pleasant roasted aftertaste in my mouth. Pretty good overall.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 This is a damn good APA. Full of malty goodness. Full of hoppy goodness. What an APA should be. Very Midwestern in its worship of the malt. Very West Coast in its worship of the hop. Pours a slightly hazy copperish amber with very little head. This comes in a acan - I am amazed a good beer like this comes in a can. This is after a growler of Alpine Duet.

Nice and hoppy - a bit malty & sweet but not overpowering. I love the new mini-trend of canned craft beers!

12oz can from S.B. Liquor San Diego. Wow! One of the best pale’s I’ve had in some time. Great aroma of pine and citrus with some malt in the back drop. Great balance through out the finish, highly recommended!

Can. Pours copper color with a crisp offwhite head, somewhat sticky and nice lace. Smells equally hoppy and malty together, almost honey like, a little metallic as well. Tastes hoppy sweet, slightly caramelly with a bitter finish, some malts in there as well and a little metallic flavor.Thin to medium body, carbonation is a bit subdued.

I bought a case of Dale’s a little over a month ago; I have one left (tears). I love this beer. It has a big bold and crisp hop flavor, and great aroma. Pours a rich copper color with about a one inch head. Amazing!

An ale with light brown colour. A small head. Hoppyness in nose. Too hoppy for my taste.
