Dales Pale Ale – Oskar Blues Brewery

O’hare’s Beer Club April 2013 Box

From Longmont, Colorado’s Oskar Blues Brewery comes their “Dales Pale Ale”.  The brew pours a slightly hazy orange/copper colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of lots of malts and floral hops.  The flavour is of malts, pine, orange and a mild to medium hops bitterness.  This beer has a creamy mouthfeel.  The alcohol content of the brew is 6.5% and it has an IBU of 65.  This is a very nice well balanced pale ale and I am glad that I was able to get my hands on one can of it!

Commercial Description:  America’s first hand-canned craft beer is a voluminously hopped mutha that delivers a hoppy nose, assertive-but-balanced flavors of pale malts and ho

ps from start to finish. First canned in 2002, Dale’s Pale Ale is a hearty (6.5% and 65 IBUs), critically acclaimed trailblazer that has changed the way craft beer fiends perceive canned beer.

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows:  Steak Pie, English Cheddar
