COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fairhope’s No. 51 is a classic American pale ale, brewed with a combination of American-made Falconer’s Flight hops and German hops. Named for being the 51st recipe entry into head brewer Dan’s beer notebook, this pale ale is packed with hop flavor but not overly bitter. Though this crisp, flavorful beer was 51 in Dan’s notebook, we expect it to be your top choice for a pale along the Eastern Shore.

BVery (9482) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle (with too much age on it, I’m afraid). Need to try this again fresh. Clear orange pour with a small to moderate white head. Kind of an orange hop thing in the nose with a little funk? Taste is bright, save the stale hops.

djd07 (9712) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt and earth. Medium mouth, honey, sweet malt, light finish, good.

on tap @ Fairhope / AL --- Aroma of biscuit and malt. Bright clear medium amber, white head, and hanging strands of lace. Looks good. Taste is malt with biscuit and light caramel that glides through a medium fizzed swallow to clean floral hops in the finish. Basic, yes, but also very well done.

On tap at Fairhope Brewing. Pours a copper color with white head. Hoppy, herbal, citrus aromas. Hoppy, bitter, slight citrus flavors. Pretty plain pale ale. Decent and drinkable, but nothing I would necessarily get again.
