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.

StuartC (28) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Dulled hop aromas with slight lemon zest. Very soft on the palate with gentle effervescence, subtle nuttiness and constant undertones of bittering hops. A very moreish Pale Ale despite delicacy of flavours.

(Bottle): Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus fruit, malt, bread and floral notes. Flavour is nice and malty at first then hits with a floral/grassy hop and citrus fruits. Sweet fruit, bread and slight caramel notes in the finish. Very Drinkable.

Ericular (612) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours a nice hazy orange with firmly suspended sediment and lasting soapy head. Aroma is bready malts, citrus, and a little tea, balanced nicely. Taste is much of the same, citrus into earthy, bready malts and a dry finish. Palate is medium bodied with high carbonation.

maltman53 (328) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - DEC 1, 2013
In bottle, pours copper-orange color. For all the hop stories on the making of the beer on the label, the hop aroma is surprisingly muted. Nice head and lasting lace. Medium-bodied, nicely balanced malt/hop middle, finishing crisp, clean and deftly carbonated.
