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.

Paid $1.45 for a 12-oz single can. Amberish in color, HUGE head... lotsa floaters. Sweet fruity hops in the nose... lotsa sweet grapefruit and other citrusy aromas. Taste is bitter malty, with hops around... finishes tangy bitter with a slightly funky aftertaste. Overall, very nice.

Can - pretty can. Pours a deep gold color with a white head. Aroma is all NW hops with a hint of malt. Taste is hoppy and finishes quite bitter. Just enough malt to let me know its there. A very good American IPA - despite the fact it says "Pale Ale" on the can.

Rich, hoppy aroma. Yellowish color with a light white head. Very big hoppy taste. The aftertaste is extremely bitter, maybe too bitter, but that’s personal taste. Overall, this a very good beer.

Clear amber body topped by medium beige head. Aroma is mild sweet, earthy, pine, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, earthy, pine, caramel, light spice. Medium body. As others have noted, impressive that this comes in a can.

Very hoppy, very fresh, very agggressive. I really like it. The can doesseem to protect it quite well. DOes yield some fruity esters as it warms. Seems very utilitarian. Nice.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
The beer poured a light amber with a nice white head that stayed throughout the session and left a nice lace. The aroma was full of citrus hops and some nice floral aromas as well. Flavors were modest. Tastes of sweet malts and very hoppy with flavors of grapefruits possible of other citrus fruits from the hops. Very dry and well hopped. Very bitter and not sweet like some.

Poured a light copper color with a sticky off white head and it left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, and surprisingly no hops however. Taste was very nice with bitter citrus, light roast and also some sweet malt. The best canned beer I have ever drank on an airplane! Frontier Airlines.

12 oz can. No bottle opener need for this one. Pours mostly clear golden/amber, with a nice fluffy peaked head that fell to a thin, but very adequate layer of lace that covered the glass as it was consumed. Oh that’s nice, very aromatic, mmmm, piney woody spiced hops, I could smell this beer for hours. Flavors are piney, sappy, sticky, savory, creamy, nice malt backdrop, finish starts with the flavor of freshly roasted peanuts and end with a lingering, satisfying, and very addictive hop bite. Body is thick and creamy, so nice! Drinkablity very high/ high. Outstanding beer, do it, to it to this beer. Find it and drink it. "This can (and) is a mighty fine beer."

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2004
It’s . . . it’s from a can, and it doesnt suck. It’s an American beer from a can, and it doesn’t suck. My world no longer makes sense. Pours out a deep copper, absolutely stunning head, very thick and creamy, stays around for a simply amazing amount of time. Nose quite hoppy, some pine resin there and citrius. Flavor rather good, initial hoppy bit followed by some sweet malts, though not as sweet as it could be. Certainly can’t fault it for mouthfeel, extremely full and creamy. Looks and feels beautiful, smells good, tastes good. Quite nice.

12oz can attractive brunette, nice head and lace. Big fresh hops smell, citrusy, little piney, some carmelly malt lurks as well. Full bodied, crisp finishing beer. Flavor of orange and carmelized malt mix together to near perfection. Lingering earthy bitterness matches the sweetness of the malts very well. This is an awesome, big, malty, hoppy party. Tons of flavor, very well done. I had it on tap at the brewpub as well...and this can tastes just as good. Very big and balanced beer.
