A-Dark orange body. Off-white fluffy head. Body slow bleeds with ruby tendencies when held to light. Head has a long life-span which leaves behind great lasting lace. A bit thick in color, no uniformity in body. The beer can look orange, brown or ruby on any inspection of body. But that persistent head will steal your eye in awe.
S-Fresh cut pine. Floral. Citrus peels. This is one of the freshest beers I've ever smelled. The variety of smells are limited, at least to me, but those present are so fresh. Malty on warming.
T-Orange in there, subtle grapefruit. Smooth pine throughout, mainly in the middle. Bready. Great balances of sweet & bitter. The key-word in taste is: smooth. Malty on warming.
M-Medium-low to medium body. Same for carbonation. Fluid body with a chewy swish. Sip starts with a restrained sweetness, a grainy malt middle and ends with a bitter pine finish. The after leaves palate numb a tad via peppery hops. Then the polar opposite arrives with a cool herbal minty breath to offset & interplay with the spicy hops. Like chewing on a hop essentially.
O-Dale's Pale Ale should be the go to beer for any occasion. It should replace all BMC brews as America's Flagship Beer. I can see and understand if Dale's is someone's favorite beer. And it gives impetus for all breweries to offer canned versions of their flagship brews because freshness is unmatched in a can.
