AKA Holiday Ale
AKA Holiday Leftover Ale
AKA Brown Sugar Substitute

This sad holiday season we didnt 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, wed short 3 cases of our favorite daily beers. Its 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. Its 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 8% abv, Then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous hop flavor.

Fearium (4) - - MAY 31, 2014 does not count
Klar gyllenbrun frg med ett fluffigt ltt skum som ligger kvar lnge. Fruktig och fyllig arom med mycket humle och syrliga frukter. Citrusfrukter och grs, den typen p tomten, inte i pipan. Riktigt bra balanserad beska. Lagom sm syrliga bubblor i kolsyran. Syrlig t citrushllet med en bra avslutande stma. Toner av kola och den bsta humlen man kan vlja. En sjukt bra verjst ale som frtjnar en plats i ngon typ av hall of fame! Does it sucks? HELL NO!

mmahut (1858) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle, swap with hackobock. Pours in clear pale body with low white head. Aroma is loaded with grapefruit, tropical fruits, watermelon, mango. Pretty complex. Taste has medium tropical sweetness with grapefruit bitterness, really fruit, well balanced. Body is full, medium carbonation, oily. Awesome.

Staffan47 (909) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
Blindprovning med Gambrinus Uppsala (vad som visar sig vara en Lagunitasprovning). Frsta tanken r att alla fyra brs r samma l!. Dominerade husprofil? Nr vrmen stiger i glasen s blir dock skillnaderna tydligare. Gyllene och klar. Bra humlad och lite rtigt. Aningen spretig ihngande beska men bst av de fyra Lagunitas fr kvllen.

Defreni (3100) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Flaske: Hjemme ovenp en hrd lfestival. Gul klar l med et stor skumhoved. Lidt gammel men stadig tydelig lagunitas med citrus humle og lkker mundfylde. God smag hvor man kan ane lagunitas terroir, men ikke nok for min smag. RERATE: Quarts flaske kbt p bryggeriet. Gulorange let diset brygget for en uge siden. Ekstrem frisk masser af citrus og mango i smagen. Superlkker og rgeligt tap room var lukket en mandag.

Vignale (3641) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
Flaska frn SB. Gyllengul, klar, centimeterhgt krmigt skum som ligger kvar lnge. Fin torr stram humleprofil, tnker stkust, kalk, citronzest, lime, grapecitrusblommig, aprikos. Rena smaker, bra balans mellan maltkropp och humle, medelstorbeska. Fr mig som inte har superkoll r det hr en stkust-IPA och en riktigt bra sdan.
