So tonight was the night of the Indian Pale Ale. I went to my local Fresh and Easy and was walking around looking for something to have for dinner. After what I got what I needed, I went to the beverage aisle to see if they had beer that you wouldn’t find at the normal supermarket. That is when I saw this cool looking label, that the Underworld Brewing Company had come up with. I had never heard of this brewery,  and not having of heard of them before sparked my interest. So I decided to grab it.

This beer pours to an amber cooler with barely no head on it. I have made it a habit of smelling the beer before I even taste it. This helps me identify what to expect when I take that first sip. When I smelt this beer I was expecting to smell the hops that it is brewed with. What I actually got was a little bit of hops, malts and the aroma of fruits which was mostly an aroma of a lemon. After I took that first sip, it tasted just like I thought it would. I has the malts, a little bit of hops and finishes of with a fruity after tone. This beer was not as hoppy as I thought it would be when I bought it but overall it is a really good before. I usually give a beer a recommendation in each post. I would recommend this beer to anyone who like a Indian Pale Ale, but doesn’t like it to be that bitter. One a boldness scale I would rate this beer a 5 out of 10. Its not really that dark which is associated with a beer that is bold, but the alcohol content is near six percent.   So with that said, if you are looking for a unique Indian Pale Ale, this one is the one for you.

I paired it with some tacos because I wanted to see how the taste of the citrus of the beer paired with the spiciness of the salsa. I really think that  the citrus really complimented the tacos in general. This beer will also be a great beer to pair with a lot of seafood since it has that hint of lemon within it.

Since obesity has become such an issue in the United States more and more people are eating healthier than they every used to. A big part of eating healthy and a big trend in the United States is eating organic food. Well I have good news for beer drinkers that want to go organic. There is organic beer out there for each and every one of you.

The producer of the organic beer that I have tried is Wychwood Brewery that is based out of England. It is located in the small town of Whitney, which is a town known for the beer that is produced there.  The beer that I chose from that brewery was the Scarecrow with is a Organic Golden Pale Ale. When this beer is poured it is poured with a cloudy amber color with very little head. you immediately smell the aroma’s of the malts a sweetness that is of fruity aroma. When drinking this beer you will taste the malts combined with a slight fruitiness. The beer ends with the bitterness of the hops. If I were to rate the bitterness of the ending I would rate it a 6 out of 10, 10 being very bitter. One characteristic that I found unique to this beer is that it had a rather dry finish to it as well. With the beer being organic I didn’t know whether to taste any difference between this one and a non organic beer, but the fact is, I didn’t notice any particular taste that was attributed to it being an organic beer.

If you are looking for a crafty organic Pale Ale this beer is the one for you. I can’t say enough about how good this beer was. I also noticed with this beer as with other ales, the warm it gets the better it is. I highly recommend this beer to everyone.
