"Five is a farmhouse pale ale that was born after enjoying a few small production European brews that use a heavy hand of hops. Ours blends several Mt. Angel grown varieties to create a deep and complex flavor with an underlying earthiness. Pale fruit aromas created during the fermentation brighten the profile and bring the beer balance."

Malts: organic pale,organic caramel
Unmalted: rolled barley

Bottle I brought to share at the Revenge Of Instant Replay bottleshare held at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a thick cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, licorice, tea, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, floral, and tea flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has some unique aromas and flavors that I am enjoying.

A - Nice golden color, cloudy, huge head, slowly melts away, leaving nice trails of glistening lace.

S - Amazing balance of hops and citrus, very fresh nose.

T - Hoppy at the start, fading into an amazing orange finish that sticks around, very good.

M - A carbonated bubbly drink, that keeps it's form throughout.

O - Overall this is an amazing beer, my favourite so far with this brewer, have to try them all now.
