Cask with thyme. We have been long-anticipating our first collaboration with DC’s 1st production brewery in 55 years, DC Brau, and we are psyched to announce that the Bluejacket/ DC Brau brew will be poured for the very 1st time during the 4th annual DC Beer Week! This is our take on a long-forgotten style, Grodziskie-Gratzer, a low abv, smoked wheat ale with a strong hop presence...dutifully called Embers of the Deceased, or--in German if you like--"Asche des Verstrobenen"!

Cask at CK. Pours a cloudy, low haze yellow. Weak foam. Nose is sharp thyme and rosemary. Taste is buttery, thin, with sweet rolls. Comes across as white pizza: dough, cheese, rosemary. Palate is weak. Nice experiment.

I forgot to list this one as a contract brew with DC Brau, my bad! Cloudy golden color, huge fluffy white head. Aroma of just the right amount of thyme, enough to make it interesting, but not overwhelming. Taste is up front spice then subtle straw. Very nice.
