In this beer blog, we are going to sample Union Brewing Duckpin Pale Ale. This brewery was founded in 2012 by Kevin Blodger, Adam Benesch and Jon Zerivitz. They brew several different beers and they package them in cans. Their website does not say it but it looks like some of their beers are draft only. Let us get into this pale ale.
It has a copper color with inconstant white head on this pale ale. The aroma has a heavy hints of citrus to tropical fruit notes. The taste has a nice sweet malty notes that rips into a bitter citrus notes. The aftertaste has a heavy hop bitter finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer can and their website (www.unioncraftbrewing.com):
This generously hopped pale ale is a strike in your mouth! Brewed with lots of Pacific Northwest and Southern Hemisphere hops, this beer is ten frames of big citrus and tropical fruit aroma and flavor. A strong malt backbone rounds it out and makes this pale ale a delight for the senses. The pins may be small but the flavor is huge! In our town, we roll Duckpin-a true Baltimore original.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Ending, I was pretty stun how good this beer was. I did enjoyed this beer very much. I love the hops that they picked for this brew. This pale ale kicks off some nice citrus to tropical notes. They builded a nice malty backbone that takes control of the hops in this brew. It is pretty drinkable beer and is easy to drink brew. I made a trade with my friend Matt out east. I will be doing more trades and I will try to get more brews from this craft brewery. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
