COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AKA Holiday Ale
AKA Holiday Leftover Ale
AKA Brown Sugar Substitute

This sad holiday season we didn’t have the brewing capacity to make our favorite seasonal brew, the widely feared BrownShugga’ Ale. You see we had a couple of really good years (thank you very much) and so heading into this season while we are awaiting the January delivery of a new brewhouse we are jammin’ along brewing 80 barrels of IPA and PILS and such every 3 hours. A couple of months back we realized that since we can only brew a mere 60 barrels of Shugga’ every 5 hours, that we were seriously screwed. For every case of Shugga’ brewed, we’d short 3 cases of our favorite daily beers. It’s a drag. This year, we brewed something that we think is also cool and brews more like our daily brews. The new brewhouse will help insure this kind of failure never happens again. It’s a mess that we can not brew our BrownShugga’ this year and we suck for not doing it. There is nothing cool about screwing this up this badly and we know it. Maybe we can sue our own sorry selves. There is no joy in our hearts this holiday and the best we can hope for is a quick and merciful end. F*@& us. This totally blows. Whatever. We freaking munch moldy donkey butt and we just want it to be all over...
So this substitute beer is a ‘Cereal Medley’ of Barley, Rye, Wheat, and Oats…. Full of complexishness from the 4 grains, and weighing in at 7.85% abv, Then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous hop flavor.

Great hoppy aroma with a bit of citric in it. Light golden colour with long lasting head. Hoppy taste with quite los of alcohol feel, but very smooth palate and easy to drink. Good one!

Big resinous bite, mid-sweet, grapefruity, noticable, but not overpowering maltbase, ABV well integrated. Medium/fullbodied soft carbonation, bitter finish. Very similar to a little sumpin’ sumpin’

Flaska från SB. Ganska klar mörkgul med vitt luftigt skum. Doftar ljuvligt av humlen, tropiskt, citrus. Tror Amarillon finns där. Otroligt frisk och pigg, söt men går över nästan direkt i beskan. Bra!

@Nedre Mölla 3/5-14. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Persika, aprikos(?), citrus, tallbarr, grapefrukt. Smak: Grapefrukt, citrus, tallbarr, sötma, tydlig beska. Kroppen är medelfyllig, avslutningen bjuder i sin tur på en ganska lång och rejäl beska.
