There is nothing like fresh beer. There is also nothing like coming home to find some fresh beer waiting for you from far off lands. In this case from Colorado to Wisconsin to Illinois to NJ.
Beer #73 is Dale’s Pale Ale by Oskar Blues Grill & Brewery. Hailing from Colorado, they are famous for putting their brew in cans. Cans…I can’t remember the last beer I had in a can. It quite possibly may have been a Miller Lite. I think it is safe to say Dale’s, an American Pale Ale with an ABV of 6.5%, will be a much tastier brew than the Miller Lite.
From the can into my the pint glass it went with an amber color and a small white head. The nose was very light, some pine, a bit of citrus, and malts. The taste was nice and hoppy, by that I mean pine and grapefruit type flavors. I picked up a bit of biscuit flavors, malts, in the back of the mouth. Mouthfeel was on the medium side with a decent amount of carbonation with just a bit of bitterness that lingered on. This was another easy drinker and before I knew it, it was gone, gone, gone.
Dale’s Pale Ale was a very nice beer. So much better than anything I have had in a can. Cheers to Scot from Illinois for this beer and the numerous others I received today!
