COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ljuvlig l, kraftig humlig, stma, fruktig i aromen. Smaken har en balanserad kraftig beska kanske lite kryddig p slutet. ABVn rundas in fint och kroppen r fyllig och perfekt kolsyard

Flaska från Systembolaget. Doft av ananas och andra tropiska inslag. En liten spritighet i smaken som för övrigt är söt, karamell, tropisk. Aningen vass men väldigt god. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear amber with medium tall frothy off-white head. Aroma of rye, caramel, light toffee, hints of citrus, light resin. Taste is initial caramel sweet followed by a long resin bitter finish that lingers. Body is fairly light and somewhat oily with soft carbonation.

Doften helt fantastisk frsch tydliga amerikanska Humletoner. Smaken lite tunnare ltt med medelbeska. Efter en stund tydliga toner av Padron 1964 Maduro i doften. Underligt men fantastiskt gott ihop.

Det hr var inte dumt, smaken var fint balaserad med toner av pple, grapefrukt, honungsmelon och tallbarr. Kroppen var hrligt stabil och balansen var, som tidigare ppekats, riktigt fin. Slutsats; kp den och drick den!
