From Santa Cruz California’s Uncommon Brewers comes their “Golden State Ale”. This ale is brewed with poppie seeds although they are not all that noticeable. The beer pours a golden colour with a white head. The aroma of this beer is of pale malts, fruits like grape, honey and a Belgian style yeast. The flavour of the beer is of pale malts, honey, fruits such as grapes, spices, pepper and a Belgian yeast. The alcohol content of the beer is 6.4% with an IBU of 25. This is quite the uncommon ale but it is quite a nice beer none the less!
Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: BBQ Chikcen, Pasta with tomato basted sauce.
From Santa Cruz California’s Uncommon Brewers comes the “Baltic Porter” found locally in single tall cans. This porter pours a deep black with a brown head. This beer smells of sweet malts, licorice and anise. The flavor is amazing with coffee, licorice, malts and anise with a slight hint of hops. The beer comes in at an alcohol content of 7.8%. Being a lover of actual licorice I was a fan of this beer and would recommend it to any fan of porters or dark beer in general.
as Uncommon Brewers says this is an “Uncommon beer for uncommon people”.
