I cracked a can of Dale's Pale, poured into a British pint glass, hoisted it to get a good look and spied my 18 year old son through the glass, a cherished memory (until he flipped me off). The appearance is beautiful, and the smell is outstanding. I loved the feel of this beer, and the taste led me to wish I could have had a second. Who would have thought such great beer would pour out of a can?

A- Drank it right from the can so I'm not too sure.

S- Nice burst of citrus as soon as I cracked it!

T- Great hop flavor here. Not very malty back bone but that's okay, I wasn't expecting as much from a APA.

M- Crisp in the mouth with a bit of tingle. Light to medium bodied and very easy to drink.

O- Great session beer. Not a whole lot going on here and thats perfectly acceptable. Well done Oskar Blues.

Serving type- 12oz can. Thanks for reading.

After four years and over a hundred beer tried, we expanded the man cave to add a two tap system. Dales was picked . Poured deep yellow, with small head. Fair lacing floral and pine notes, with a citrus finish. Full flavored pale ale.

Bought in a sixtel served at 38 degrees received a 11 out of 20 in our beer club. I gave it a 14 myself.

Dale's Pale Ale - 12fl oz can

My buddy and I were brewing beer when he offers me one of these bad boys, I love canned beer so I was interested.

Look - Interesting can, almost like a domestic. Pours a hearty, clear copper with a thick, soapy head. Minimal carbonation. Good lacing.

Smell - A permeating sweet savory malt rush with light hoppy overtones. Mouth watering.

Taste - A snappy smooth malt bite, bready and yummy with a nice hop overlay. Solid.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth and somewhat sweet. Good to go, drinkable for sure. Tasty, full, and thirst quenching.

Overall - Surprisingly delicious. This is how a pale ale is done. Best pale ale I have ever had. Underrated quality and drinkability.
