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.

Flaska från SB. Ljust gyllene med vitt skum. Fruktig doft med inslag av passionsfrukt, ananas och lite tallbarr. Söt och fruktig med låg beska.

Medium amber body floats a creamy off white head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of citrus and juniper and cut hay, mango and orange, caramel. Taste is mango and juniper, bitter orange, faint honey in the finish. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation is fine and light, perfect. This is really fine beer. Just a touch bitter on the finish to be something I want all day, but so close!

Received, pleasingly unexpected, in a trade with BMoosey. Bottle poured into my IPA glass. Nice clear golden pour with amazing aroma. Flavor is very nice more malt driven than I expected. Very nice beer would like more please.

Huge spruce nose - jumped out of the bottle and drop kicked my nose with a steel-toe boot. Big sweet malt body. Some herbal and floral qualities. Strong ripe fruit character. A bit of pepper on top of tropical notes. Really nice hop spice and citrus. This is Lagunitas bread-and-butter; a perfect example of their balls-out, straight-up muscle car horsepower, bull in the china shop approach that leaves little to the imagination but is dead center bulleye and every other cliche in the book.

33cl bottle at Foodhallen, Amsterdam on 23-Apr-2017. Clear orange amber colour with a small white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus and floral hops. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is sweet fruit, medium bitterness and hops. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit, caramel and malt. Decent.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 2, 2012
355ml bottle. Aroma is sugary sweetness and pine and grapefruit hops. Pours a orangish gold with a small foamy head that went away, then the very active carbonation regenerated tighter, creamy head. Never saw that before. Taste is creamy and spicy with some clear dry hopped notes on the finish. Body is creamy and smooth, but a little light. Overall, rather tasty and unique. Thumbs way up.

Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Tap at blue door. Golden with small white head. Aroma is muted and sweet, citrus hops. Flavor is sweet clean and bitter. Nice beer.

sudomorph (1153) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
1qt bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a fluffy, white head that sticks. Aroma has notes of pine, resin, tropical fruits, and citrus. Taste is bitter but balanced. Orange citrus, resin, pine, and a slightly sweet aftertaste. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. A not resiny in the mouth with a big, dry finish. Overall really nice. Would get again!

3.9
smaynard6000 (1152) - Apopka, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling copper color with large foamy white head. Aroma is dominated by hoppiness, with mostly citrus notes. Powerful hoppy flavor. Smooth, slick bitter finish. This beer is as good as the story behind it.
