Chuggability:&#160 8
Great flavor, but it’s simply too smooth to sip. If I was feeling particularly thirsty I might be able to chug a six-pack of these. Don’t mistake chuggability for lack of character, though, because this beer is bold and flavorful. The fact that it goes down so easy is a real testament to its quality.

How Much:&#160 10
When it comes to value, this beer simply can’t be beat. I buy at least a dozen of these a week and my local store, Incredible Liquors, sells this for around $16 for a 12-box. Using the math I learned in 2nd grade, that’s $8 for a six-pack. I have yet to discover a beer at this price point that can compete with this beauty and that’s why it’s a staple in my fridge the entire year. It’s a great beer, one that I would gladly pay more for…just don’t tell Oskar Blues that.

Uhhh…Taste:&#160 9
It’s hoppy as all hell, but it’s as smooth as two marshmallows wrapped in silk and making love on a bed of velvet. It’s a fantastic beer and my favorite pale ale to date. Like I said, I always have a few of them in my fridge and they’re great to mix in between some bigger imperials. It’s a perfect beer for when you want to take a break from 9% DIPA’s without taking a break from bold flavors. Bitter and crisp with a creamy smooth finish. If you like pale ales, you’d be doing yourself a great disservice by not drinking one. Hell, if you like beer at all you better at least try it. Team Chug approved.

Gettability:&#160 7
Oskar Blues distributes to around half the states and Dale’s Pale Ale is available the entire glorious year.

    • Agreed. Also I find a can easier to smash against my forehead when I’m done chugging than a bottle.
