Notes / Commercial Description:
In honor of Officer Mathias Degan, the first of 8 of Chicago's Finest to lose their lives in the line of duty during the Haymarket Affair. Copious amounts of Citra Hops deliver wonderful citrus and mango notes. At 10% ABV, we feel Mathias is a proper representation of the strength and courage of our Boys in Blue. Raise one to thank the fine Officers of the Chicago Police Department for their sacrifice.

Had on tap during the WBEZ tasting

A) Golden Copper color with a two finger head, cloudy some visible nucleation.

S) When the bartender handed it to me I could smell while it was still in his hands. Citrus fruits, dank, honey, bread, very sweet smelling beer.

T) Citrus, skittles, honey, bread, very tasty can't taste the alcohol at all.

M) creamy and juicey medium amount of carbonation

O) Absolutly great! Reminds me of Clown Shoes Galatica or Piepworks Citra Ninja.

6/20/17 - Again on tap at Haymarket in Chicago. Served in a tall goblet with a dark orange, rust color. No lacing. Hoppy, spicy, and crisp. Great aromas of mango, but not fruity. Such a good one.
