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.

Bright clearish orange. Soft starchy topping of off-white lumpy foam adorns the crown with steady staying power and levels off leaving tall hills along the sides as it collars. Patchy, big blotchy lacing sticks all over the place. Nice looking ale! Dullish pale pine and old orange skins poof up the air quite well along with partially toastyness and grapefruit scraps. Big taster with tenderly paled and toasted malt making its way across the palate quickly, letting you know you’re drinking something with some guts to it. Slender pine sap and soft eager dryness floats about while touching and flinting notes of all kinds of wonderful hop notes of grapefruit pith, lemon and orange peel, and resiny pine oils. Broad and lasting with a remarkablely easy finish within its dryness and bitterness. Holds a very high standard to what a solid Pale Ale ought to be like. Solid, affectionate body of medium/fullish girth. Loads of malt toasting and pale-izing things up with a crunchy edge of bite and carbonation allowing the finish to sneak by with an ease of slightly parching hoppy bitterness and citric pithy, peel, oilyness. Toasted dryness returns and has a nice complexing tone in the finish mixing with the citrus notes; which lasts impressionably well. A solid Pale; and in a can even!? Nice...

A wonderful pale ale. very fresh hop flavor and perfect for the summertime. Not too heavy and lightly malty.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Solid IPA, love the can effect still. Pours a deep amber with huge head. Nose was mostly malty with a little hope left over. Alcohol was actually a little more potent than one might expect. Was a little too chewy for me in an IPA/apa but something I would like to try really really fresh and have many cans to consume.

Pours a clear copper color with a thick offwhite head. Good aroma of spicy hops and toasted malt. Good flavor of spicy, resinous hops with toasted malt and a lingering bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation.

[Bottle bought in Vinens Verden.] This was just a very great sample ...and then a can!?=(")¤%/"¤. Never thought I should give a can the note of 4.2. Like a IPA or IIPA with remarkable notes of Cascade/Centennial such as flowers, fruits, spring, citrus, not so much grapefruit, nice bitterness and a very nice finish, great for broadsiding experiments! Like a summer IPA!

Nice red amber with creamy off white head. Pours smooth. Aroma of sweet grapefruit and floral notes. Hoppy sour citrus flavor balanced with a sweet mouth and dry finish. Loses body fast and feels thinner and watered down as the carbonation fades. Refreshing and crisp, but maybe a little too much grapefruit throughout from start to end. I think I prefer this at room temperature rather than from the fridge.

Can. Nice head with good duration. Color is hazy amber. Aroma and taste are rich with hops. Good long finish.

Finally, an american microbrew that deserves the hipe that it gets. I’m normally a european beer guy (they are clearly much better) but this beer is outstanding.

thewolf (12371) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2007
Can, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours a wonderful clear red-orange with a small creamy yellow-ish head. Aroma is heavily fruity hoppy - apples, peaches, grapefruit. Low carbonation. Flavour is very hoppy with some biscuit and caramel. Quite bitter, but there is a fruity sweetness behind it. Very nice - I could have liked a little more sparkle in the carbonation.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2007
(Can 35,5 cl) By far the best canned beer I have ever had! Huge hoppy aroma, impressive flavour with malt, fruits (peaches?), and pines ending in a quite bitter but very pleasant finish. Even the palate is very nice considering the 6.5% ABV. Basically this is an American IPA without the extra 3% ABV. Fan-fucking-tastic stuff!
