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.

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.

>> Pours a low haze orange with low to no foam. Nose is sticky orange gummies, neutral lemon, no aromatic hops, cereal grain. Taste is potpourri, dry, watery, orange peel. Potpourri bitter in the end to the point of a near chemical bitterness. No body to offset either.

sloshgator (623) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Fairhope #51 is a decent session pale. Moderate floral hop aroma coming off a dark hazy orange pour with a frothy head. Taste is less floral with more of a bitter bite on the back end than expected from a pale ale. #51 is just an average pale ale good for drinking with food.
