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

Keg @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. Deeper amber colour with a thick frothy head. Does not taste its strength a slightly sugary sweetness throughout. It’s a little sticky in the palate with some toffee notes evident and quite a strong nose in this respect.

Golden brown pour. Aroma is big ginger whack (spruce?) and some yeast. Taste is the same and some malt character. Not a beer I would drink very much of but still well crafted.
