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.

Birra americana molto particolare, amarino ma nn esagerato sia al palato che al naso e leggermente fruttata e speziata. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Tap at the Pure Bar and Kitchen, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is citrus nettle hop. The flavour is medium bitter witn a zesty citrus, woody, resin, hop bitter palate. Moderate to light bodied with average carbonation. A super session ale!

Poured from bottle to glass. Honey hue with fizzy off white head that settled. Aroma is malt, resin, straw, slight sulphur. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet followed by a nice hop bitterness. Overall this is a decent brew.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Tap at Drunken Monkey. Pours light orange with an inch of white foam. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. Has a bit of floral on the nose. Nice floral hip notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. This one’s pretty solid.

Block (1432) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2014
A pretty light and usual beer. What you would expect in terms of hops and malts. Well balanced. Hoppy up front and at the finish with a smoother and sweeter middle.

majorbase2 (14) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Aroma has citrus and pine, with a bit of bready malt. Pours amber-orange with a decent off white foam head, with good retention and lacing. Taste is where this one lets down. Some hop bitterness leads the way along with muted citrus. Floral hops. Nothing too strong. Light bodied and thin. Overall not Odell’s best attempt, but not horrible.

smells of malt and barley and cigar smoke (odd that i couldnt smell any hops?) dark amber with white foamy head. Rich and smooth creamy aftertaste, reminds me of rodenbach grand cru. excellent.
