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.

DonGregorio (122) - POLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Can. Clear orange/amber colour, rocky, slowly diminishing white head, good lacing. Faint floral and grassy aroma. Light sweet, light to medium bitter taste of caramel, flowers, leading to a grassy bitter finish. Light to medium body, average+ carbonation. Bland and very disappointing.

Couleur cuivré avec une belle effervescence. Une mousse onctueuse et riche. ça sent la céréale, le sucre, le houblon. Une belle texture en bouche. Une bonne touche de céréale, de sucre avec un bon coté citronné et une amertume fort agréable et persistante!

Tall cans are a bit much for this type of beer, 2 had me well past halfway there! Has all the bitter/aroma hop balance you’d expect in a pale but with a managable finish to keep it sessionable. Nice colour and consistant through the 4/5 places I had it .

355ml can from Tesco. Medium sized white head disappears quickly, good lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is resin, pine, caramel. Flavour is caramel, resin, grapefruit. Good bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium carbonation, spiky mouthfeel, nice little bit of chew. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Raistlin (353) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2017
Pours clear copper colour with at least 3 finger tall off white head. Aromas of citrus and woody hops with some pine deep down in the glass. Flavour is mildly piny, light malt and a good amount of hop bitterness. The malt has a short finish with the hops going much longer.Medium bodied and very soft feeling on the tongue.

Frothmeister (754) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2017
355ml can. "Canned on 10/03/16". Purchased 01/06/17. A classic LCBO two month wait before seeing a shelf may have affected the freshness of the hops, but it’s decent. Pours clear and the colour of honey with a creamy light beige cap. On the nose, British-like caramel malt profile, resinous hops, pineapple, and heavy mineral notes. Taste wise, crisp hard water, caramel malts, light citrus, and metallic hops into more mineral crispness, resinous notes, and citrus pith in the finish. I would LOVE to try this fresh because it almost comes across as a Fuller’s London Pride/American Pale Ale hybrid, and as a fan of both styles I mean that very much as a compliment. Here’s to Ontario’s 100 year old liquor laws! Huzzah!

It pours copper with amber highlights; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: toffee, grapefruit zest, mango, and cereal. The taste is lightly bitter. The palate is light bodied with medium carbonation, and has a short finish. Overall, it’s meh.

Tognetta (813) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 5, 2017
Âmbar escuro de leve turbidez, espuma bege de media formação e persistência. Aroma tendendo ao caramelo, leve amadeirado, nada extraordinário como esperava. Paladar de leve dulçor e amargor. Corpo leve média carbonatação. Final de leve/média persistência, tem um tom amadeirado. Boa mas não correspondeu à nota do RB.

drjoeng (1044) - SINGAPORE - JAN 2, 2017
6.5%ABV. Pale Ale. Poured out amber. 12°SRM. Nose is malty sweet, orange maybe a hint of pine. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has toasted malt with toasted grahams, honey on wheat toast, barley or multigrain toast. Hops are bitter melon, deep heavy grapefruit peel, resinous, sappy. Finish is long with a pronounced back of the tongue lingering bitter. Overall a big big hoppy ale, whose ginormous grain bill will largely go unnoticed. It’s really what allows you to really appreciate all of that hoppy complexity. Goes on Favorites List!

Can. Pours brown/amber. Aroma of caramel, bread and citrus. Mild sweet with moderate pithy bitterness. Nothing exciting here.
