Brewski Pineapple Unplugged

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 4.7%
Style: American Pale Ale
Other Notes: American Pale Ale. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) I am an American Pale Ale with crazy amounts of pineapple and a hoppy unplugged attitude. Who are you? Just as a person can have different moods, who say a beer couldn’t? How do they say? “Thursday I don’t care about you’, or whatever, just let me wear these babies! I am still the same pineapple beer. Just as you, the days are different and so is my mood. Today I am Thursday.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 19th April 2019, ‘B7 for lo??? (it was cut off)’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden straw yellow colour with a big three finger big bubbled white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some sticky lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, grass, dankness and hay with a touch of citrus zest.
Taste: Lightly sweet pineapple to start with hints of citrus zest, chalky and floral notes, but the finish is extremely weak with close to not much flavour if at all.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: It started out well enough with good pineapple flavours, but unfortunately the flavours just kind of fell off to nothing on the finish.

Brewski Mystery Monster

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 6%
Style: American IPL
Other Notes: India Style Lager. Keep it real, no additives inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) He has light in his eyes. Like someone in disguise. He isn’t tall but wide, definitely not easy to hide. He’s got dried out lips, and normal finger tips. He got black hair in his nose and he lacks a fire hose. He got veins on his thigh, not your normal beer belly type of guy. He is stylish and new, and clearly not overdue. A bit India, but not pale, and absolutely no ale. He got a familiar taste, this mystery monster is not a waste.

Brewski x Mikkeller Magic Valley DIPA

Brewery: Brewski x Mikkeller ApS
Country: Sweden
ABV: 7.77%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: Double IPA w/ Guava. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) It’s the witching hour on a dark, moonless night. You’re huddled with friends around a campfire in the woods far from town, taking turns telling stories. Someone has just recounted a particularly eerie tale about an encounter with a ghost, insisting it was true. You sit quietly, staring into the flames, reluctant to let on that it actually made your skin crawl. Then someone in the shadows clears his throat and begins to speak: “did you hear the one about… the magic valley?”
