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.

Into a goblet with a finger of head on a clear, straw colored body. The aroma is wonderful bright citrus: orange, mandarin and grapefruit. The taste is a little disjointed: moderate bitterness throughout with lemon and grapefruit dominating. There’s a sweetness breaking the surface once in a while too. There’s a soft texture with moderate carbonation. The taste was a letdown because everything else was great.

Fles online besteld, geprobeerd met LiekevdV. Het is een helder geel kleurig bier met een medium schuimkraag. Het heeft een lekkere hoppige geur. De smaak is vol, hoppig en wat fruitig. Erg lekker!

Defintely not a bad one this! Stable IPA with some citrus notes and herbs, but it is not a master of the species as far as I'm concerned. Know plenty more of better IPAs.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Aromat słodkie, dojrzałe owoce tropikalne, lekko winne. Trochę karmelu i żywicy. Ciutkę alkoholu. W smaku wyraźne owoce tropikalne, żywica i odrobina słodkości karmelowo miodowej. Goryczka wyraźna, trochę ściągającą, albedo. Sporo ciała. Ciutkę alkohol wychodzi. Nisko nasycone.

Sweet and bitter, big and fragrant. Piney and resinous hops, with all of the balance I always look for. I could see this fatiguing the palate, but it's constructed just right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
