Ok Bird,

After your glowing reviews of Dale's Pale Ale I'm going to give it a second chance. I had tried it a while ago at a restaurant. I was expecting more. Although I just hooked up another two kegs to the keezer over the weekend I couldn't resist on my recent visit to Wegman's to pick up a six. More yard work = more beer.

Dale's = Good Stuff

I'm also pretty fond of Pork Slap PA. Very nice. My "Official Post Dive Brew."

Aaaah. Pork slap was right next to Dale's. I know I leave myself open to abuse but the only time I did have Dale's I think it may have been sitting in the ice cold chest with the other canned beverages. I actually like having hoppy beer a bit cold as it changes with the temperature in the mouth but the flavor wasn't there. It was light but hop flavor wasn't quite there and pale ale's to me always mean (whether american or english) some kind of malt plus a good flavor from the yeast. It just didn't have that undertone. It was only one tasting tho. As someone once said I blame the PID!

Well, it's not overly hopped, which is why I like it (when I want an IPA, I'll drink an IPA). It's also pretty clean, I don't remember much if any yeast character (it's an American Pale Ale, not a Brit). To each his own; I just think of it as clean, very balanced, very drinkable.

If I recall, I think I had Dale's on draft one night. It was ok, but a bit absent of character. An ok lawnmower beer to serve cold and drink up. Steel Rail is about as light an example I really enjoy for a pale ale. I was up in Bennington, at their brew pub, and tried their suckerpond. That was too light for me, and if I recall, similar in profile to Dale's.

I'm a fan of both. Although the pork slap is a farmhouse and more malty than the dales but dales has a cleaner finish. To each their own.
