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.

Slightly malty hop aroma. Hop flavor and malt balance start out slow and then hit you. Balanced very well throughout. A good session brew.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Pours a clear bright copper. Incedibly thin white head. Quickly dissipates to nothing. No lacing to speak of. Smell is surprisingly hoppy. Assertive citrus and floral aromas. Also some sweet fruity maltiness in the nose.

Taste: Bitingly bitter up front, mellowing into a grapefruity hoppiness. A surprisingly substansial pale malt then takes over although it remains quite bitter throughout. Nice sticky maltiness that I wouldn’t have expected. A nice bold body to go with the hops. Lightly chewy withthat bitter hops aftertaste.

Not bad at all. Certainly good enough for my next backwoods camping trip.

12oz can. Medium amber color. Large sized white foamy head, strong lacing. Aroma is earthy, sweet and piney. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. Malts are caramel, sweet, with touches of earthiness. Hops are piney and grapefruity. The malt sweetness is balanced by the big piney hops. Nice crisp dry finish. Decent beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

Can. Orange-amberish in color. In my opinion kind of an ugly looking beer. Floral hop nose. This one packs a nice punch of hops but is well balanced by the creamy malt flavors. Overall, the best beer you’ll ever have from a can.

Can from SpringsLicker. Nice clear medium amber in color. The head is medium to long lived and whitish in color. Great lacing. Big aroma of pine and fruit with just the right amount of caramel malt trown in for balance. Medium bodied. A little alcohol is felt. Malty sweet caramel with the same piney and floral hops in flavor. Pleasant lingering hop bitterness. This is more of an IPA, and a good one at that, than an APA. Great beer in a can!!

ElPodo (6) - Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2005 does not count
Too big for a can. My palate wanted something more drinkable. Too hoppy, out of balance. Not my kind of beer. I love hops, but I need some malt backbone to balance it out.

DewBrewer (294) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2005
12 oz. CAN. (personally canned by Brush Prairie’s own Marc M---thanks!!) Clear copper color. Good head w/ nice lacing. Piney, resinous aroma from the hops. Flavor: best canned beer in America! Pretty hoppy but the malt background tames it. Piney hop flavor. Pretty quaffable at 6.5%. Nice beer.

3.8
BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Can from Eric: Pours a nice amber hue with a big fluggy head and outstanding lace. The aroma has notes of light citric and pine bitters, biscuity and caramel malts, and a dusty ester. The taste is a nicely balanced bitter versus sweetness combo. The hops shine and the malts provide a good backbone. The bit of citric notes adds depth but also provides a long aftertaste. The feel is refreshing and slightly sharp. A darn good beer, again Oskar proves canned beer "can" be good.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 12 oz can,says on the side "Pack it in, Pack it out"!
The beer is a deep orangy/dark honey colour with a smallish off white head, leaves pretty nice laceing.
The aroma has a very substancial hoppyness..especially the "citric" tangs..almost as strong as some IPAs.
Again the taste is mainlly of the hops but after a few sips a good smooth , semi sweet maltiness shows, and after about half the glass its a well balanced beer.
Very nice on the palte, exceptionally smooth and quite "thick" for the style.
What can i say? Very drinkable and would make an excellent camping beer as the label suggests
