BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Odell Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
odells.com

Style: English Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Poured out of a 12oz bottle this beer produced a beautiful, creamy head that disappeared within two minutes. There was however some lacing left behind. The liquid was amber with some haze. The aroma was a bit sweet with mild hoppiness. The flavor is quite mild, and just a bit fruity. A very light, drinkable ale.Not a terrible beer, but not the kind I would actively select again.
