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.

Nice orange amber hue. Fresh clean citrusy hop aroma and flavor to match. A bit effervescent and bitter on the tongue so not incredibly sessionable but not bad either. Not very sweet but not sour.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
(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.

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.

a great smelling beer let down a little bit once it passes the lips. poured a copper orange with a small head. sweet caramel and fruity nose, gives over to a too thin and oily mouth feel. keg. blind jacks knaresborough.

Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is quite malty, some lemon, earthy hops. Taste is light sweet with a fairly well balanced, light sour and bitter finish. Oily texture, light carbonation. Quite nice.

It's malty with a good amount of bitterness. I like the hop character regardless of its subtle nature... A solid decent brew but nothing super exceptional. Yummy! Easy drinking with the odell house flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

natejgood (414) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Pours an amber almost orange color with a pretty decent head. Smells a big hoppy with a little bit of a floral undertone. The taste of the beer is a little underwhelming. It is a little bitter with a slight hoppy taste, but the flavor is pretty light. The beer goes down pretty easily with many small bubbles. This isnít the best pale ale Iíve had, but it goes down easy and is relatively refreshing.

Quite delicately hopped. Spicy with a notable floral aroma. I like it. So many bitters in England are desrcibed as having floral aromas but i generally get bread and stale flowers. This is sweet and fresh like rosewater. Well done.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - APR 10, 2007
12oz bottle (thanks to Indra) poured a hazy copper/orange color with a lasting white head. Aroma was a musty citrus with sweet caramel malts. The flavor was well hopped from begining to end with a good malt balance. Not a bad english pale, but I still like the american style more.

Bottled. Pours golden color with a medium beige head. Aromas of grapefruit and berry. Flavors are similar with a crisp hoppiness. Itís decent but not good.
