Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale

Brewed with hefty amounts of European malts and four kinds of American hops, This American Pale Ale delivers a blast of hop aromas, a rich middle of malt and hops, and a thrilling finish.

A sniff from the firm, tan head yields a varied aroma, displaying a healthy dose of caramel sweetness along with a resinous, floral hop presence bolstered by a surprising alcohol tingle on the nostrils. Toffee and caramel flavors march in on the beginning of the swallow, heavy and sweet. Aggressive hops emerge as well, citrusy, sticky, and spicy with an elevated level of bitterness. Dark gold and full-bodied, this beer has mild carbonation and a stiff alcohol presence.

Why squeeze such a big brew into a little can?

And no matter where you drink Dale’s Pale Ale, our can protect it from light and oxidation far better than bottles do. Oskar Blues launched its canning ops in 2002, brewing and hand-canning Dale’s Pale Ale in the Lyons, ColoRADo, brewpub. America’s first-craft-canned mountain Pale is a hearty, critically acclaimed trailblazer that changed the way craft beer fiends perceive portable beer
