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 8% abv, Then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous hop flavor.

Pours a clear golden orange with a fluffy white head. A somewhat soapy note on the nose, lots of citrusy hops, sticky pine, and a nice bit of malt. Very smooth taste, pineapple and mango, orange rind, and a nice bready malt note. Super fresh juicy tasting citrus and tropical fruits, and a nice malt backbone. Delicious.

Grapefruit and pine aroma. Pours a cloudy honey gold with a thick white head that fades relatively quickly leaving lots of lacing. Graefruit. Pretty sweet. Mouth coating. Hard candy like texture. Very smooth. I thought this was going to be really bitter but it's not. It's very smooth.

wonderful aroma of pine and resin perhaps a grapefruit or lemony hint as well..nice clear amber gold color thin white head..taste..NOW you get the rye and oats nice and strong to balance the hoppiness mentioned in the aroma,very well done..the palate is rather light-med bodied and well carbonated with a bitter dry finish overall it’s cool that a beer called "sucks" might actually be one of their best beers

On tap at Flying Saucer. Golden orange color. Smells of sharp citrus and pine. Taste has a slight body odor? Not quite sure what that is. Not terrible...

Apache (63) - Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Very balanced. Tastes like a much lower abv beer. Slightly sweet with citrus hop character.

c4p3n (6) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2014 does not count
Great citrusy flavor. Tastes like a lower alcohol beer. Hops flavor doesn't have an overly bitter aftertaste.

3.7
chicagobears (473) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a highly carbonated golden color with a bright white head. Aromas of lemons, sweet ruby grapefruit, and pines. A lemony and bready taste. A very lively carbonation and slightly oily mouthfeel. A pleasnt dyness in the finish. It does ’suck’ that there is no Brown Sugga available but this will do well as a substitution.

Lagunitas Sucks pours a mostly cloudy bronze orange with an eggshell white head that lasts nicely and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is rye bread, resin and earthy. The flavor is resin, rye bread and earthy. Overall this is a delicious brew that says just the opposite of the beer’s name - it does not suck. I would recommend anyone who enjoys some good hops to give this a try.

Very much a hoppy beer. Nice bottle pour, aroma is citrus hops, and appearance is golden with a decent head. Taste is very balanced! Solid malt background that is perked up by the hoppy goodness!
