This is certainly not the first time I’m coming across Stable 12. I’m lucky to live near their brewery in Phoenixville, so not only do I get to enjoy them often at home and around town, but I frequently come across them at beer festivals in the area, and the beer is always a standout.

I came across Sugar-Coated Pony Kisses at the WMGK Local’s Only Beer Fest in 2018, Crowd Pleaser the same year at the Philadelphia Zoo OktoBEARfest 2018, and this beer, Super Mash Brothers, at the 2019 Fonthill Castle Beer Fest.

With two young ones at home, I admit I don’t get out enough, and being in such a great beer town with breweries like Stable 12, I definitely feel a little bad. They make some great beer, and this review is LONG overdue, as the beer photos languished in an “unpublished” folder on my desktop.

Super Mash Brothers pours an attractive, hazy golden-blonde.⁠ Looks beautiful in the glass. Brewed with Citra, Idaho 7, & Mandarina Bavaria hops, the aroma is dank and piney, with grapefruit, oats, and vanilla throughout.

Just as dank on the tongue, with sweet grass and damp forest notes. Touches of tangerine, orange peel, and sweetened grapefruit with a caramel maltiness. Oats and hints of vanilla grace the palate as well. This beer is medium-bodied, smooth, and juicy, with just the right amount of bitter.

I don’t see this on tap at the brewery but I do see new Untappd reviews for this all the time, so it may still be in production! One can only hope.
