COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Care for some hops with your hops? Before we ferment our 5 Barrel Pale Ale, we strain it through a bed of 'em. Then while it ages, we add even more. We like how this gives the beer a fresh, lively finish. We like hops.

As we go about refining the recipe for each new beer, we brew up just five barrels at a time. That's exactly how we arrived at this pale ale -- so that's what we named it. Plus, it sounded a lot nicer than Giant Vat Pale Ale.

Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a limited head. Citrus, hops and malt on the nose. Flavors are a hop winning battle with the malts, but I did not find this brew to be crazy hoppy. Grapefruit on a apricot canvas. A good pale ale. Thanks to jhammerly for the bottle.

Decent little beer this was. Very malty, but also very nicely hopped, with lots of citrus and grapefruit, lots of decent fruit flavors. Decent flavors and a stand up bit of maltiness. A better beer from these guys than I expected

On tap (on trip to KC). Pours a nice amber orange with decent sized head. Aroma is sweet citrus. Nicely hopped. Very drinkable.

Decent aroma but the taste will let you down some (in my opinion). Has some good flavors but overall itís a bit too hopy with not enough character. Just slightly too pale for my taste. If you like pales then it might be for you. Probably my least favorite from Odell.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 31, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Pours orange with an off white head. Aroma is some mild grass and floral hops. Flavor is lightly citric with more of a grassy taste. Hop character is medium. Finish is light and crisp. Some sweet floral notes linger in the finish. Nothing like knocking back and Odell 5B in mid summer whilst grilling and chillin.

mamabeer (39) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Bottle - This was a very pleasent surprise for me. I thought this was going to be a lawnmower beer. Iíll mow more often if this is my reward. Starting with a nice fruity aroma, this lightly cloudy golden ale presents itself with a moderate white head. Light creamy mouthfeel with little carbonation. Flavor begins sweet and citrus then changes into a nice mellow hop aftertaste.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Golden amber in color with a nice head. Huge aroma of fruit and grass. Succulent but dry hoppiness, tinged with orange and grapefruit with enough sweet, slightly caramel malt to keep it balanced. Nice.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - MAY 12, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear amber with slowly diminishing, frothy, medium white head. Big aroma of grapefruit right from the start, with more subtle notes of juniper and toffee. Lightly bitter with intense carbonation and a light body. Aftertaste of dried apricots maybe. Maybe. Everything except the grapefruit hoppiness is subtle in this beer. Overall, not bad, but nothing remarkable about it either.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2006
On tap at their tasting room. This was my favorite of their beers I think... the hops definitely stand out in taste and aroma. A bit thin. The bitterness comes out towards the end.
