BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Fairhope Brewing Company
Alabama, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly known as Fairhope No. 51

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.

I spent the afternoon at the beautiful beach of Gulf Shores, AL, and now trying some local beers. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus hops, some pine. Taste is piney, malts, light citrus, some bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but nothing special.

Pours a pale Amber with a frothy white head that hangs around and leaves a trail of lace.

Nice pine, floral, and citrus notes in the nose. It has some nice malt biscuit note as well.

Pine and citrus give a nice bitter hop punch up front. It has a nice slightly chewy malt middle and a dry, bitter herb finish.

Pours a clear, amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of pale malt, fresh sweet malt, citrus hops, hint of alcohol, hint of tea, and hop resin. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight pale malt, hop resin, caramel malt, slight tea, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, malt aroma is amazingly fresh, and well balanced body.
