Beautiful Amber color but that head was a bitch,
Smells like malt and caramel notes with spicy hops detectable
Taste is balanced. It's stronger, and more hoppy than what you'd expect from an APA
Overall good but not my favorote

Dale's is an old favorite and a great beer to serve at parties and also pairs pretty well with food.

Pours a translucent amber with great clarity and a puffy off-white head with excellent lacing.

Smell is heavily malty with a hint of fruit character.

Flavor is intensely malty but not offensive and easy to drink for the hop shy.
