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.

Can. It poured a bit unclear, with a nice, golden-orange color and a medium, lasting, dense off-white head. Quite lively carbonation. The pour released these lovely, piney, resiny and citrusy aromas, and having a more thorough sniff, the maltyness also finds it’s way up your nose. The flavor is quite dominated by all the hops, with its citrus and pines, but as in aroma, a nice maltyness is also present. Quite sweet, with some beef-stock as well. The beer has a firm body, and that bitter astringency feeling that the hops give. The finish is long and bitter, and quite heavy on the resiny flavors. And the lacings are nice too.

I have no doubt this is the best canned beer I’ve ever tasted, it’s really enjoyable, and it’s definately a beer I could down a few of. Nice work Oskar! (071012)

Can
Light copper brown, small white head. Flowery American hops in the nose. Medium-bodied, good malt profile with some hoppyness. Balanced American pale ale, which has some character of IPA.

A: Poured from the can into my Russian River pint glass. The beer is clear and amber in color with a thin white foam that leaves some lacing on the glass. S: The smell is a nice combination of citrus hops (with a mild piney quality) and quite a bit of sweet, bready malt. There is also a mild honey smell. T: The taste is fairly comparable to the nose. The hops are certainly present, but not overwhelming. The citrus flavors are dominant in the beginning, followed by a sweet malt flavor, and a bitter finish. M: The beer is fairly well carbonated and the body is medium, but on the fuller side for a pale ale. D: A good example of a Pale Ale. Not overly hoppy nor malty, but a good balance of the two.

Copper colour. Low carbonation – nice one. Resiny, woody c-hops in the aroma with crystal malts and a hint of florals. Well-balanced body shows toasty notes and floral/citric hoppiness. Fairly bitter example.

On tap at TCBF, pours golden. Aroma of hops, pale malts and grains. Flavour is hoppier for a pale ale, with a decent malt balance. Great bite with a nice hoppy finish. Definitely one of the better pales out there.
