Harpoon Releasing New Fall Seasonal (First Since 1989): Flannel Friday

12 August 2016

imageWe brought you an early peek at this beer back in May, and now the details from Harpoon:

There are subtle but unmistakable signs that announce the arrival of fall. That first crisp afternoon --– the sun is bright but there’s a slight chill in the air. And then there are the first few leaves that start to turn on the trees. Perhaps the most telling, there’s the first day at the brewery when almost everyone shows up in flannel. In celebration of the New England fall, the employee owners of Harpoon are proud to introduce Flannel Friday, the brewery’s first new fall seasonal offering since 1989.

This Hoppy Amber Ale is a tribute to the quintessential season of change. A bright hop aroma from Cascade and Citra hop additions complements its strong and complex malt backbone. Amber hued, medium bodied, with hints of citrus and pine, Flannel Friday is meant for the crisp days of fall.

Flannel Friday Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Amber in color with a garnet hue
  • Aroma: Citrus, piney, a hint of tropical fruit
  • Mouth feel: Medium bodied
  • Taste: Malty and hoppy
  • Finish: Moderate hop finish

Flannel Friday Specs:

  • Style: Hoppy Amber Ale
  • ABV: 5.7%
  • IBU: 35
  • EBC: 32

Harpoon Flannel Friday is available now in 6-pack and 12-pack bottles, 12-pack cans, and on draft. For more information visit www.harpoonbrewery.com. To locate Harpoon Flannel Friday, use the Harpoon Beer Finder at http://www.harpoonbrewery.com/beer-finder, checking back periodically for new locations.
