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 canít, where flavorless canned beers donít belong. And no matter where you drink Daleís 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.

Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is of citrus, a bit muted and dusty. Taste is hoppy and clean up front, nice citrus and bitter notes and a bit of caramel from the malt.

HOPS very hoppy taste and aroma. From start to finish its pretty smooth with a bit of an after taste that lingers.

Good retention and good lacing. Smells of slight citrus hops and malt with a hint of barley. Tastes of citrus fruits and lemons. Long bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Canít believe the high ratings here at RateBeer. Had this on tap at Foxís Pizza Den; perhaps there was a problem with the tap. This was just plain nasty. It tasted like someone took a BMC and added some hops for a little bitterness. Nothing enjoyable about this beer at all.

pretty decent ale bordering on IPA bitterness. a little toasted malt in the finish. good attenuation i think, the lack of sweetness and alcohol % but no harsh alcohol notes at all show that some care went into this beer.

A good pale ale, especially from a can. I am a bottle drinker myself but if you put this one in a glass its a great tasting, smooth pale ale with good flavor.

12oz can. Pours a orange/amber with a small white head, aggressive pour. Some lacing, not much though. Aromas of hops and malts, pretty basic nose. Flavors are a step up, with a good malt backbone, and a nice hoppy bitter finish. The palate and overall score were both brought down by the lack of carbonation in this beer.

Much hoppier than I remember it being the first few times that I tasted it. Really more of an IPA than a pale ale, which wasnít what I was looking for when I picked this up again. Pours a nice copper color with fairly low carbonation. Aroma is of huge centennial citrusy hops, as is the taste. Flavor is not overly complex whatsoever, displaying one-dimensional citrus hop taste with a mild malt backbone that doesnít intrude. Thatís really about it. A great beer when youíre in the mood for an IPA, a decent one when youíre not, and a horrid beer when you donít want hops. At least itís in a can :-)

Daleís Pale Ale comes in a can...it was put there by a man...in a factory, downtown... Extra point for putting this fine beer in a can. One point deducted for calling your IPA a pale ale. Light amber, clear, fluffy white head that lasts and lasts. Pleasant citrus aroma. Very bitter but drinkable, orange, cranberry, toffee. Finished smooth. Great beer.

Well, the color is spot on, the aroma is spot on, the malt is in tune with the hops, and the bitterness is clean and resonnats with the spicy candor of Northern Brewer hops.... The only thing wrong with this beer is that itís a IPA. I think everything about this beer screams IPA and I think they would sell more of it if packaged so. The can bothers me not, I have too many beer glasses to be drinking from the container.
