Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: GPHarris on 04-01-2013

Fairhope No. 51 is a classic American pale ale, brewed with a combination of American-made Falconer's Flight hops and German hops. Named for being the 51st recipe entry into head brewer Dan's beer notebook, this pale ale is packed with hop flavor but not overly bitter. Though this crisp, flavorful beer was 51 in Dan's notebook, we expect it to be your top choice for a pale along the Eastern Shore.

Interesting hop character on this. Somewhat floral with some tight fruit and a decent oily thing going on. Seems heavy on malts, which is fine with me really. Again, heavy on the carbonation for me. I can dig it. Wouldn't mind a slightly more defined character. But I think this is meant to be an easy drinker as opposed to some degree of a punch in the mouth. (360 characters)

Nice color and thin head. Smells like a fresh cut grapefruit. Nice carbonation and light crisp feel. Tastes like it smells. Heavy grapefruit citrus flavor that is sweet up front and then a harsh bitter punch at the finish. Bitterness got to me but the sweet up front helps. (273 characters)

Appearance - Pours a clear golden pale color with slightly off-white head with good retention.

Smell - Strong hop presence of citrus notes, pine, and floral. Faint hints of fruity esters.

Taste - High hop bitterness with medium finish. Hop character of floral and citrus, also a toasty character. Malt sweetness is present, but balance heavy towards hops (as expected).

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied,with smooth finish and medium carbonation.

Overall - Not an overly hoppy American PA, that seems more balanced and refined, albeit tough to standout in a saturated craft market of Pale Ale styles.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Dating on label suggest this may be the first commercially bottled batch. (707 characters)
