RATINGS: 2717   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.71/5   EST. CALORIES: 195   ABV: 6.5%
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.

One of the best APAs I’ve ever tasted. The can trick is no myth. great golden hop aroma with a smooth finish. The feeling of freshness is uncanny. The perfect beer for taking into a concert of a ball game.

From can... Aroma is of sweet caramel malts and citrus hops. Tastes is more or less the same. Bittering hops more evident in the finish. Balanced well, and pretty easy to drink. Good for a picnic, tailgating, and just about anywhere.

Citrus and super hoppy nose. Deep golden, almost honey-like color. Thick long-lasting head. Solid bitterness, balanced by malty sweetness. Was a little heavy, but alcohol cut through. One of, if not the, best American pale ales out there.

Ahh, Dale’s... the session ale of choice for hopheads in my little city. Pouring from the can into a glass, I marvel at this brew’s frothy head, beneath which a golden amber liquid sits and waits excitedly for its journey into my mouth. But first the aroma... A fresh burst of juicy hoppiness greets the nose, mingling sweet herbal notes with mild citrus qualities. The first sip introduces Dale’s delicious malt flavor, remeniscent of a good chocolate chip cookie. A vague metallic taste lingers, although the bold flavors try hard to hide it. As noted by previous reviewers, this pale ale achieves a nearly perfect balance of malts and hops. Each component helps the other one to show off its best characteristics. I think they have great Rocky Mountain water in Lyons as well. I visited the Oskar Blues establishment and had some Dale’s from their tap -- amazingly it tasted just like their canned product. (The same cannot be said for most bottled beers, which always have better flavor at the brewery.) Go cans!

Can... Pours sunset yellow-orange...slight white head. Great hop aromas...citrus, slight pine. Same on the flavor...hops bitterness, a some smooth malt flavor. Typical pale ale mouthfeel...a little bitter, w/ a nice dry finish. Taste doen’t linger... Great portable beer for fishing!

[email protected] Lovely strong floral aroma with a hint of grapefruit. Dark yellow, almost amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, fruity and floral at first but soon rather bitter and grassy. Full, soft mouthfeel. Long lasting finish. Nice balance, not too powerful or overwhelming. Thanks Yngwie!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 Dåse. Duften er fænomenal på denne yderst attraktive øl. Mørk pilsnerfarve med et lille skumhoved. Humlen er perfekt doseret i forhold til maltbasen som tydeligt skinner igennem. Synd at det er for dyrt at gøre dette til standard drikke øllen. Ved nærmere eftertanke er øllen også en tand for stærk, burde trække o,2 ned på overall i forhold til stilen, men det er en lækker øl.

Dale’s Pale Ale is a great canned brew. A good balance of malt and hops. When I tasted it I couldn’t believe it came from a can.

Can (is there any other way??) Orange/gold color, clear, small white head. Lovely bitter hops aroma, more on the pine side than sweet. Tastes of Cascade hops, pine, caramel, and a bit of roasted malt. Excellent hop-forward balance. Crisp, clean finish. While it seems more like an IPA than an APA, who am I to complain? I love this beer!

poured a orange-amber hue with a thin white head which had great retention. Aroma seemed to be full of bitter hops and very mild citrus notes. Flavor had mild caramel malts with an almost peppery hop bite. Seemed thin on the palate. finish was dry.
