Beer Wednesday – Duckpin Pale Ale
Happy Beer Wednesday!
As I’ve been drinking and blogging about beer, there have been some amazing brews that I’ve been lucky enough to tell you about. Unfortunately, some vegan beers have been less than amazing, and this week’s vegan brew falls into that category. The beer is Union Craft Brewing’s Duckpin Pale Ale.
At just 5.5% ABV, it was almost a session ale, and I had the same complaint with it that I have with most of the session ales: it was kind of one-note.
The head faded quickly, and while it was light both in mouth-feel and in flavor, there was almost no malt, the the hops were just a little citrus, with a little too much bitterness. There just wasn’t much to this vegan beer.
Because it didn’t impress me, I have to admit that I’m a little disappointed in this particular Baltimore beer. That having been said, it’s certainly drinkable, and I could see myself drinking a few too many of these Baltimore beers on a hot summer day, so I’m not unhappy to give this vegan beer a 3/6 on my six-pack scale.
