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.

A definite go-to since it’s always the best-buy option when I hit my favorite market, which is loaded with tons of good beers. There are some nights, especially when I have to work the next morning, when I don’t want to get into sampling the latest double hop bomb blasts that line the shelves here in San Diego. So I go for Dale’s. 6 pack of cans, modestly priced. For what it’s worth, it’s a delicious pale ale, toeing the line to a crisp, understated ipa. Smells good, tastes good, lets me keep my head on straight and I can recycle the cans if I get bum broke. And now they have tall boys. Excellent!

Pouted a clear golden yellow with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of light grain and faint citrusy hops. Taste is nicely malted to start with a grapefruit bite in the finish that is well balanced with the malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I thought the aroma was a little weak, not bad, but not as strong as I had hoped. The appearance was good. Nice golden color and was clear. The taste was decent to good for me. Maybe a touch bitter for my palate. Not sure the hops were balanced with the malt enough..a little harsh. With that being said I still liked it.

Ericular (971) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Canned about a month ago. Pours a clear pale orange with lasting film and not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, floral, caramel, a little tropical fruit. Taste is not quite as good... starting off with a moderate malt/hop resin balance, then into a bitterness that feels just slightly cheap. That fades after a few seconds and the aftertaste brings it back from a 6 to a 7. Palate is fine and carbonation appropriate. Not terrible, but a letdown after a couple of finer Oskar showings this week.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 First of all, old can, brewed in July (7.5 months old). Pours orange, kind of reddish, good head. Smell of tropical fruit mix, hard to pick out one dominant fruit, but I guess that would be grapefruit. Taste of a very nice short bitterness and then fruity and some biscuity maltiness. Medium mouthfeel, feels more like an IPA than a Pale Ale. Very good.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Can pour with a big fluffy off white head on a nice hazy bright orange body. Aroma of toasted malt with hints of caramelized pineapple. Taste of smooth toasted malt with with fruity pineapple sweetness. Nice smooth mouth feel with just a slight bitter finish that does not linger long. Overall greatly balanced pale ale my bar offers a lot of depth and complexity to enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can from Georgio’s, Billerica, MA - although unlike the photo here, this is marked "Brevard, North Carolina" at the base. Amber with a thin cream head; attractively perfumed, honeyed aroma; clean, fresh, hoppy taste; and a satisfying finish. An easy drinking APA.
