Jaggery Pale Ale

The effects of jaggery as described by Randy Mosher in his book Radical Brewing:

“The East Indians treasure a beautifully creamy, partially refined sugar from the sap of certain palm trees. Golden in color and congealed into blocks the size and shape of a fez hat, jaggery resembles maple sugar in taste, and aroma, except perhaps with some buttery accents…As with all fully fermentable suagrs, jaggery has the effect of lightening up the texture of a beer, and adds nice soft caramelly maple notes.”
