Tonight, at Mudville 9, we have Flying Dog Brewery Night and are featuring two beers by the brewery- Wildeman and UnderDog. I decided to tell you a little about UnderDog and why I like it.

Flying Dog UnderDog is an American Pale Ale that pairs exceptionally well with barbeque, one reason why its a perfect beer to have on tap here. The beer pours into the glass as a beautiful, clear gold color with a nice, billowy white head. Upon first taste, it goes down incredibly smoothly and is very refreshing. UnderDog is very light in taste and great for the warm temperatures we have been enjoying. After the first initial taste, I noticed a moderately spicy and slightly citric bite which I enjoyed profusely.

This is a great beer to pair with your meal any time of the year, but especially Summer since it is so refreshing. We look forward to pouring you a glass.

The Bitter End Pale Ale

We now have The Bitter End Pale Ale on tap and it is delicious. It is a very clear, auburn color. It smells of citrus and pine with a small note of sweet caramel.

The first taste is a very light pale malt taste which leads to a slight bitterness that is not too overpowering. The beer leaves a very mild bitter after taste and is incredibly refreshing to drink. It is not too extreme in either the malt or hop direction. The Bitter End Pale Ale is very easy to drink and great to try if you are not incredibly familiar with many craft beers. 

At just over 5% alcohol, this is a great beer to pair with a meal. I paired it with a Buffalo Chicken Salad, but it would go well with any of the many salads we have on our menu. Come on in soon to try The Bitter End Pale Ale.

Dead Guy Ale

We recently just added Rogue Ales’ Dead Guy Ale to our list of on-tap beer and it is crisp and refreshing, just in time for the beautiful weather we are having today. The beer is a beautiful medium orange with a golden glow and a very clean scent. 

Initially, it tastes of toasted malts, with some floral and spicy malts midway through. Dead Guy Ale has a very balanced taste where neither the crisp hops or sweet malt overpowers the other. The beer goes down incredibly smoothly with a full and hearty flavor that doesn’t over-intensify your palate. I would pair this with any meat or fish- try it with our beer battered cod!

Troegs Nugget Nectar

One of our new beers on tap here at Mudville 9 is Troegs Nugget Nectar and I highly suggest you try it. Before today, I had never tried this but now I will definitely be ordering it a lot.

The beer pours into a nice amber color with a pleasant, but not strong scent. It has a very strong, hoppy taste that lingers in your mouth and is quite delicious. It pairs very well with both poultry and cheddar cheese so I recommend trying this with Mudville’s wings (I prefer sweet BBQ) and their cheddar cheese fries. 

At 7.5% alcohol- which you cannot taste- I think this is the perfect beer to pair with a meal. It is crisp and clean and will not leave your mouth feeling overpowered. This is a must-try next time you’re in Mudville 9, but since we change our beers up pretty often, better come in soon!
