Notes/Commercial Description:
The distinctive hop character of our 5 Barrel Pale Ale is due to the extraction of essential oils from select hops. We treat 5 Barrel Pale Ale to an infusion of fresh whole hop flowers in the Hop Back and the Fermentor, as well as four hop additions during the kettle boil. We like how this gives the beer a fresh, lively flavor and aroma.

From notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

5 Barrel Pale Ale pours a pale and transparent copper color with a medium sized fluffy white head.

There is a spiced malt nose with a bit of a citrus hoppy kick.

The flavor starts with a grainy malts, with a faint sweetness. There is a bit of spice and pine, and a light citrus bitterness toward the end. It is a fairly simple beer, and not anything that I

The mouthfeel can best be described as not offensive. It is light bodied, somewhat smooth but still a bit grainy, with a medium carbonation.

This is fairly bland and just not that exciting.
