Intercourse Brewing Paradise Pale Ale
I picked up a case of the Intercourse Brewing Company sampler pack, and the first beer I tried was the Paradise Pale Ale. The beer pours a golden color with a think filmy white head. The aroma consists of sweet pale malts and an intrusive caramel accent. The taste is smooth and sweet with a big caramel base and a wonderful sour lemon hop bite. The alcohol content is 5.2% ABV. I would say this beer fits in the sweeter pale ale category, but it’s not sweet; it simply is not bitter. This is a well crafted beer with a wonderful fruity finish built upon a caramel base.
