Has a hint of orange in an otherwise nice looking beer. Has light carbonation and a thick head. Hop is good and rather light.
Has the REAL beer taste with a fair mixture of hops and for me, the right amount of bitterness. Nice beer as it grows on me. Tasty beer. I'm liking it more all the time I'm trying this. Mouthfeel is fine. The right bitterness is a major plus for me. This is a great beer. Poured into a 8 ounce nonic from a Canned on 4/23/18 12 ounce can. "DUDE, WHERE"S MY BAR?"

Color is a bit lighter than I’m used to in a Pale Ale. Nice head, and bubbles ever so slowly rising to the top. Smell doesn’t give much away, some pine present. Taste isn’t as hoppy as some other brews eg. Lost Coast or Twisted Manzanita. More on par with Sierra Nevada. Good amount of bitterness- it’s what I like most about this beer. Very light carbonation, a little too light imho. Overall a good choice for the price and relatively high abv will add to your enjoyment.

Have had this several times now, but in honor of the 19.2 oz cans available at the local gas station, came here to review.

Dark amber color with a decent head and lacing. Very strong pine aromas, which, as trite as it may sound, seem straight out of Colorado. Tasted a bit of those pine hops, but the malts are just as present if not more--a deep sweetness as though there were a dark chocolate equivalent to brown sugar. I don't like the grainy aftertaste. Feel is smooth and body is solid.

As a hophead, I appreciate that you can find this beer at stores otherwise dominated by Bud and Miller Lite (and at a good price). It's like Sierra Nevada in this respect. And I would put Dale's on par with Sierra Nevada overall. Dale's is boozier and stronger, but weighed down by its graininess.
