COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of Officer Mathias Degan, the first of 8 of Chicago’s Finest to lose their lives in the line of duty during the Haymarket Affair. Copious amounts of Citra Hops deliver wonderful citrus and mango notes. At 10% ABV, we feel Mathias is a proper representation of the strength and courage of our Boys in Blue. Raise one to thank the fine Officers of the Chicago Police Department for their sacrifice.

A version of Uber Mathias is Mathias dry hopped with 10 lbs of Cascade per barrel.

By far my favorite Haymarket brew. Ripe, tropical fruitiness that dominates your palate with flavor. Rediculous finish to this beer, and with such a juciy finish you won’t even realize you are on your 4th serving! This beer is ranked #1 by my bowling team, as "Mathias Tuesdays" has quickly taken Chicago by storm!

gyllenbock (4460) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2011
On tap at the Brewpub, October 21, 2011. Clear dark orange with a small white head. Good aroma of fruit, hops and some malt. Quite a lot of pine in the taste, also other fruits, malt and caramel. Easy to drink, not as bitter as expected. A solid beer.

deyholla (6520) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 14, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber gold with a near white head that laces slightly and dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of non sweet mango with some grass and a hint of grains. Flavor is similar with a lot of mango, hint of grapefruit and some backing hay and grass.

douglas88 (5842) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2011
On tap at GABF 2011. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is huge citra hops, tea and marmalade. A very smooth flavor if citra hops, very light bitterness, of course massive tropical fruits. Very solid and super smooth.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2011
On tap @ brewery! Headed over after an amazing meal at Girl and tge Goat. Bright copper/brass pour with a small white head (very dim lighting, so I apologize for any inconsistencies). Nose of sharp citrus, harsh pine, and caramel. ABV marvelously hidden...orange peel and resin are balanced by light honey. Medium to syrupy mouthfeel.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Pours clear dark orange with white head. Aromas of mango, pineapple, bready malts, hops. Flavors dominated by mango and pineapple with some bready malts and caramel. Lacking the big burst of hop bitterness I was hopping for. Wonder how fresh this batch was. Enjoyable but not what I was expecting.

Tmoney99 (10475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2011
GTMW. Poured a hazy amber color with a moderate frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex citrus hop and exotic fruit aroma with a malt tone. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration.

[Tap] Sampler at the brewpub. Fragrant hoppy nose is spicy and also includes sweet tropical fruitiness. Heavy palate is of sweet caramel, heavy bitterness, alcohol and lingering mango/grapefruit sweetness. Oily and viscous body. Decent drinkability considering its weight. A solid brew.
