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.

MPA (979) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
Golden. Big, off white head. Aroma of juniper, fruit, flowers, citrus and caramel. What a lovely scent! very nicely balanced. Upon hitting the tongue there’s a soft, malty flavour that turns into a dominating, dry bitterness, though the sweetness of the malt is a close companion in the background. It’s still seems light and is ever so drinkable. Works on mutiple levels and I could easily see myself drinking this as a regular session beer.

Dedollewaitor (15737) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
Can. Slight hazy amber/orange with a fantastic thick white head & good lacings. The aroma is of bitter hops & sweet malts. The mouhfeel is filling. Good hoppiness that lastes throughout. Fruity/flowery & piney with a light malty balance. Soft carbonation. Lasting end. Very nice can of beer!

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
Helt i top Pale Ale.. Ornage- rød gylden øl med ikke voldsomt kulsyeniveau. Duft og smag af amerikanske humler, og en let sødlig nuance. En meget humlet øl - lige akurat hvad den kan tåle før det bliver for meget. Enkelte karamel noter i duften. Tør og længe varende eftersmag.

most excellent beer from a can - please do yourself a favor and pour it into a glass before drinking to experience the full effect - excellently dry hopped to give it a wonderful citrusy/piny aroma is followed by a wonderfully balanced hoppy/malty drink - this is the second beer that I have had from this brewery which has just become available locally, can’t wait to try more

Had some on top, I thought the tap was hilarious (beer can). This beer really surprised me, dry and not too bitter from start to finish, goes down very smoothly. Not as hoppy as a lot of other IPAs.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Storm, another great session @ Papsoe] Average creamy like beige head that mostly diminished. Cloudy golden color. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of elderflower, grapefruit, apricot, very citrusy, caramel, and some underlying fruity notes as well. Medium bodied with a dry texture and an average carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. 31-08-2007

(Can 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Storm/markgugs. Slightly hazy amber golden with a rough, off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with some caramel also. Medium body with lightly sweet karamel and a rather hoppy finish. Classical APA (more than an IPA really). 310807

you can’t keep fresh kegs when you have 200 taps

a old can from a very cold fridge does not hold up any better than an old keg from a place that does not rotate kegs very often, but still quite tasty when stale

Just like they say, "a voluminously hopped mutha of a pale ale." It’s a damn fine beer, don’t let the can fool you!

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2007
Canned. Semi clear and amber coloured with a rather large offwhite head. Quite refreshing with notes of flowers, pines, fruits and also has a quite maltt sweetness to it.
