We call this one Stunt Double because it was originally brewed as a stand-in for Working Class Hero. It is similar in appearance and strength, but it has a hoppiness that isn’t present in Hero. The malt flavor is lightly sweet but less cereal-like than Hero. The German hops are earthy, herbal, and floral with just enough bitterness to balance malt sweetness. The yeast is a German hybrid strain with ale and lager characteristics, able to ferment at cooler temperatures but still producing a subtle fruitiness.
