COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ďHammarby Syndrome is the distress or impairment caused by the frenzied anticipation and giddy obsession over the beautiful Hammarby SjŲstad section of Stockholm, Sweden and the New Carnegie Brewery that Brooklyn Brewery will open there in March." Now thereís good news - we can help you! Our new Brewmasterís Reserve beer is Hammarby Syndrome, a robust ale that will transport you directly to the seaside of old Stockholm. Itís brewed from a large proportion of spelt, an ancient wheat-like grain that was once a mainstay of Scandinavian beers. To the speltís distinctively nutty flavor, weíve added another old Swedish beer ingredient - spruce fronds. They add a tasty citrusy pine note to a full-bodied, lightly fruity strong ale thatíll keep you warm until the spring sunshine comes to the rescue. More importantly, itís great with hearty cold-weather food, and itíll make you feel like youíre in Hammarby until you can come visit us there yourself.

McNeillR (1679) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Murky auburn, no head. Nose is minty honey, dehydrated grass and scrubbed wood. Light treacle and honey sweet hit a right grainy dryness. Soft carbonation and a keen bitterness on the back end. Finishes a nice juicy brass, motown bitterness. Really lifts itself. Gummy plum and starchy linger. Keg, Birexx, Newcastle.

Nocturne (1134) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Keg at The Font, Manchester. A deep, autumnal shade of red. Short cap. Red apple and toffee malt aroma. Taste is sticky toffee maltiness and orange citrus. I get a hint of the spruce at first but itís not very pervasive. Fizzy carbonation. Itís OK but too one dimensional to really grab my interest.
