COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Green Flash 1st Anniversary – American Strong Ale The original Brewmaster at Green Flash, John Stewart, created this brew in 2003 to celebrate one year of brewing in Vista, CA. The recipe starts with pale malt, medium crystal, aromatic malt, and highly kilned roasted malt. Additions of specialty brown sugar and high-grade maple sugar contribute a kiss of sweetness. Medium hopping from both the US and EU give balance to the almost chewy richness of this decadent, malty ale. John has been asked to come back as a guest brewer for a re-brew of this commemorative ale to help celebrate 10 years of Anniversary Ales at Green Flash Brewing Co. 8.9% ABV, 45 IBU

Floral hop aroma, sweet but burnt malts. Amber color, medium body and light carbonation. There is something kinda offensive in the finish, maybe a dirty tap.
