Rear View Review is a new feature where I review beers weeks after I drink them. The reviews will focus on the lasting impression, or lack there of, a beer has left with me.
The first beer on the hot seat is Pin Up Pale from Mother Earth Brew Co. When I saw a new beer from these guys I hadn’t heard of yet I was excited to try it out; they make exceptional beers.
On opening there’s a fresh, mild hoppy scent that will please most hop heads. A medium bodied beer with a well balanced clean and dry finish, I have to say, one bottle was not enough.
Anywhere other than San Diego this would probably be an IPA but here it’s a well formulated pale, highly enjoyable to drink and having an alcohol content low enough that you can have a few. I’m a huge fan of this beer, I will definitely buy more the next time I see it and recommend you seek it out . Mother Earth did a great job with Pin Up Pale!
They have also been nominated for the Sore Eye Cup for Kismet, a tremendous IPA. We are very close to the vote down, make sure you nominate your favorite San Diego craft beer if it’s not on the list!
