Brau Brothers Hopsession

Brau Brothers Hopsession

Hopsession Super Pale Ale is the new offering from Brau Brothers Brewing, Lucan, MN.  It is a mixture of pale malt, wheat and a small amount of caramel malt.  The hop mix includes Citra, Zythos and HBC 342.  It has relatively low alcohol content which makes it a good session choice, but it still has a nice citrus flavor to help make it refreshing on a summer afternoon.  It will be on store shelves starting June 15.  I was lucky to get a six pack from Richard Drawdy who attended Brau Fest June 2.  The price should be around $8/six pack.

ABV = 4.2%

IBUs = 30


The beer pours out gold with a nice white head into a pint glass.  There is a nice light hop aroma and taste of citrus and mango.  The mouthfeel is light and refreshing.  This is a nice summer beer and a good effort for a session beer.

The beer paired well with the teriyaki shrimp Sue prepared for supper last Sunday.

This a good summer beer and one many will want to enjoy!
