Oskar Blues Brewing Dale's Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Oskar Blues Brewing Dale's Pale Ale.
From the Oskar Blues Brewing website: “This voluminously hopped mutha delivers a hoppy nose and assertive-but-balanced flavors of pale malts and citrusy floral hops from start to finish. 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 (6.5 percent ABV and 65 IBUs).”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a light clear amber color with a large off-white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, pine and floral hops balanced nicely with grainy and bready malts.
Taste: Pine and citrus hops blended with bready, biscuity and doughy malts. Slight tropical hop flavor in the finish.
Overall: A very solid Pale Ale, Oskar Blues Brewing Dale's Pale Ale is a great tasting beer. This 6.5% ABV offering is refreshing and easy drinking. I would certainly pick this up again.
