I was honestly going into this beer already disapointed because 2 of my 3 previously tried out of a make your own 6-pack were very disapointing (1 was another well known pale ale from another craft beer giant, the other was a canned beer). Boy was I surprised, this is a good beer. Pours an orange-gold body with a mountain of frothy foam. The smell was floral and piny with some citrus. The taste reflects this with the addition of some sweet malts. Overall a delicious beer that I definitely see myself drinking in the future, but with that said there are a few critiques. Firstly I felt there was too much bitterness with not enough hop flavor if that makes sense, like there was a lot of just generic bitterness with not too much distinct hop flavors. Secondly, the packaging needs to be updated. Although I got only one in a make your own I saw that these were being sold in the old plastic rings of fish doom. In my opinion that need to change to the new 6 pack carriers most craft brewers use for their canned beers, they look better and are better for the environment

Dales pale ale is pretty plain and doesn't stand out much.

you say pale ale, I say IPA. this is a solid beer. Put some in your back pack and chug it at the top of a mountain.
