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.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 2010-04-10, tasting at Papsø, 6-4-6-4-13=33
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Nice but mild aroma, caramel and fruity hops, a bit earthy. Simple but reasonable caramel flavor, with residual sweetness, sweet nuts, correct bitterness.

Hazy light amber color. Some malt and hop aroma, maybe a bit fruity, and some grass. Simple flavor, with light caramel, dry, some sugar, very light apple peel, quite strong (or correct) bitterness. Too simple.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle from GBBF 08. Amber, thin beige head. A little bit of acidic nettle? Not a great pale ale, some toffeeish malt, but I’m not a big fan of these acidic nettle hop beers. Bit dull.

Theydon_Bois (16865) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home - Apr ’12. Hazy orange/amber pour with a smallish white head. Sweetish malts on the nose, a little toffee, muted hop aroma. Not as sweet in the taste as the aroma suggested, caramel malt, toffee, hops, a little herbal flavour. Medium bodied and carbonation with a clean finish. Drinkable but uninspiring.

A bit hazy amber brown, small off-white head. Malty, some leather in the aroma plus aromatic hops. Malty, medium-bodied, some sugary notes, dry hoppy aftertaste. Balanced but quite uninteresting pale ale.
