OSKAR BLUES BREWERY DALE’S PALE ALE

Oskar Blues Brewery Dale's Pale Ale. I was drawn to this as I am a fan of the can.

Incidentally, Oskar Blues Brewery has can cred, because it was one of the first breweries to release craft beer in cans. They released Dale’s Pale Ale in cans way back in 2002. To date, they are one of the few craft breweries that solely use cans.

Despite being called a pale ale, it’s 6.5% ABV and 65 IBU, which is really starting to creep into IPA territory. It uses European malts, Northern Brewer for bittering, Cascade and Columbus for flavour and a post-boil addition of Centennial for aroma.

Slightly opaque golden yellow colour, frothy head with large hop oil bubbles. Sweet malt and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth moderately resinous mouthfeel.

Starts with a sweet light caramel malt flavour leading into citrus and floral hop flavour. The hop flavours and resin linger with a moderately bitter finish. The relatively high ABV for the style makes it a little sweeter than other pale ales but the resiny hop goodness in the finish keeps it in check.

Good work dale.
