AB-48 and AP-09 are both among Albert's earliest recruits. Their shared unyielding attitudes towards good beer caught Albert's attention.
But they never got along well. While AP-09 believes in solid classic beers, AB-48 always has an urge to question the norm and help discover enhanced beer styles for a better beer world. Frustrated with the never ending arguments, the two eventually parted ways to embark on their own boozy journeys. AP-09 went on with his mission of wiping out all monsters (aka beer snobs) around the world while AB-48 answered to her inner calling to go on a never ending quest to discover the best creative beer styles for all mankind.
This Michelada Gose is AB-48's newest discovery. Taking inspiration from three continents, she adds blood oranges and Yu Kwen Yick chili sauce into the classic gose, and builds her own version of the Mexican hangover remedy.
Think the unthinkable. An absurd combination of 3 flavors - yep, AB-48 is sour, salty and spicy all together.
It starts off with a refreshing tartness from lactic acid and blood orange, and a light sea breeze character from the added sea salts, but ends with a spicy kick at the back of your throat. This unique spiciness comes from a classic made-in-Hong-Kong chilli sauce - Yu Kwen Yick, which gives the beer a distinctive - but not overpowering - spicy, vinegary and galicy taste.
