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.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 APA from a can?! well i tasted it on draft at barleys in greenville and it was quite good. color was light amber with no lacing. aroma is citrusy with orange and grapefruit, hints of pine with some floral notes as well. flavor was nicely balanced with hoppy bitterness taking the lead and malty sweetness in the finish. mouthfeel is medium bodied and the beer lingers with sweetness. overall, quite good if you can get over drinking it from a can.

thanks josh. clear amber with a good white head that settles into a thin film. aroma caramel grassy hops with a touch of citrus. bittersweet piney caramel flavor with a lasting bitter caramel grapefruit finish. finish a bit overly bitter. medium body moderate carbonation. decent pale i would drink it again but i dont know if it lives up to the hype.

can. white average fizzy head into cloudy orange body. good lacing present. aromas of light caramel and light to moderate floral hops. flavor is bitter-sweet throughout. I am not sure I would actually call this an APA it has way more flavor that I am used to from this style. I would love to have a cold six-pack of this on a camping trip.

pours a hazy copper color and the head has a pretty decent lacing. smell almost reminds me of a nut brown ale. the hops are prominent but not overpowering, leaving a nice hoppy aftertaste. a very well balanced APA

The aroma and appearance are clean but not distinctive. However the flavor shows off the brewer’s considerable skill. The multiple hops are at once earthy, astringent, and floral. The pale malts are full-bodied with sweet, peachy undertones, and provide a viscous texture. A slightly sweet finish with lingering hops on the front of the tongue.

Very good beer overall, especially from a can. 12 oz. can, no freshness date. Poured out a hazy copper color, with a thin, sticky tan head. Aromas are strictly "C" hops, with sweet malts. Flavors are sweet malts, "C" hops, slight esters. Thick mouthfeel and body. Finishes hoppy & thick on the tongue. Damn tasty canned beer. I’m impressed.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 can poured into a lager glass has a lovely amber color, steady slow carbonation, and a big white fluffy head that retained rather well. this is my first try of high end beer that comes in a can and so far it is looking pretty promising. aroma has peachy fruit hops, pepper, caramel malt, plenty of floral, and citrus. pretty juicy on the nose. mouth feel is surprisingly substantial with some thickness. flavors are hop centered with sweet fruit and pepper, good dose of malt to thicken it up, and finishing with some bitterness from the hops with lingering fruit. first caned beer and first oskar blues, both get a big thumbs up here.

Pours hazy golden-pale-orange with a thin but frothy white head. Big hop aroma that is more English than American to my nose -- more earthy, floral and berrylike than citrus. Excellent malt character that stands up to some big bitterness. Definitely more citrusy in the finish than in the aroma. Yay for canned beer that I can take camping!!

Can. Clean and copper coloured with a nice creamy off-white head. Aromas of fruity hops and a nice crispy and bitter taste.
