I bought a sixer of Dales Pale Ale yesterday after I checked the date on the bottom of the can and it said canned on 10/6/17. When I drank it, it tasted different than what Ive had fresh. When I rechecked the date, I read it wrong. The canned on date was 01/16/17. What surprised me that, although it tasted different, it was still quite good. It almost tasted like a good Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Dark fruits, malty sweetness, caramel, etc. Is this the norm? Or was this a novelty? Given Dales is not classified as an IPA, rather a Pale Ale. I'm wondering if SNPA would also be quite good at nine months old.
