Oskar Blues Dales Pale Ale

    Newer Older

    A can of Dale's Pale Ale from Oskar Blues Brewery in Lyons, Colorado, at HåndverkerStuene in Oslo, Norway.

    Dale's Pale Ale is a 6,5% abv American pale ale and recognized by many as one of the best beers of this style. It's been a couple of years since I last tried it, so I was a bit excited. It poured a hazy amber color with a white head. Fresh aroma of citrusy hops and a sweet malty note. Nice carbonation. Flavor starts out with a grainy malt sweetness before the bitter hops kick in to balance the sweetness. Nice bitter finish with some sugary sweetness lingering.

    I can't remember that Dale's Pale Ale was this sweet, it reminded me of Great Divide's Old Ruffian barley wine more than a pale ale. Still, it's a very smooth and balanced beer, with a lot richer tasting experience than your average Pale Ale.
