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 pour. Big bubbles, lacing ok. Peach color pour. Fruity hops aroma. Well balanced with malt. Not as hop heavy as I expected. Not as bitter either. Smooth drink. Great canned beer.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2018 Amber pour with off white head. Some malty sweeter notes along with hoppy pine, resin, and citrus. A go-to in our house

Dale's Pale Ale von der Oskar Blues Brewery aus Colorado, USA. Schicke 0,355l Dose. Trübes Bernstein im Glas, mächtige Schaumkrone, allerdings kurzlebig. Malzbetonter Antrunk, süssliche Zitrusfrüchte im vollmundigen Körper, sehr harmonisch. Super gehopft (65 IBU), hinterlässt leicht trockenes Mundgefühl, die süssbittere Grapefruit bleibt ewig im Rachen hängen. Sehr gut.

Poured from 330 can to a glass mug. Pleasant hoppy aroma that doesn't seem to massively follow though into the taste. This is by no means a bad beer. It's a pretty typical American pale ale really. Tasty and refreshing without being too offensive on the hop front. Not that dissimilar to Sierra Nevada's pale ale. If anything Dale's is more of an easy drinking beer, not sessionable, but very easy to drink if drank from the 330 cans.

Canned 7/25/17. Bought the 1 Pint 3.2 oz can cold. It was recommended by friend at work (Dale). Beautiful amber pour with thick, light carmel head. Aroma and flavor were not as robust as expected. After reading reviews of hikers, perhaps I didn't have enough of a thirst to truly appreciate; don't know if nearly 5 months on the shelf contributed.

Amber, bit hazy with rich off-white head. Malty aroma with some hoppy notes. Moderate malty sweetness well mixed with good hoppy bitterness, some sourness too. Lasting mild bitter hoppy aftertaste.

Keg at the Salisbury Arms in Winchmore Hill. This is an ESB, not a pale ale. As an ESB it is good, with a rich sweet taste, a long flavour and a nice malty mouthfeel. That richness was evident (alongside the alcohol) and there is no way we could do more than one pint during the session.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 This is an excellent beer for a backpacking trip. It is delicious after hiking 3 miles in the woods. Put it in a mountain stream to keep it cold. Just a solid easy drinking and tasty beer
