Mature asgarnian ale, also known as Asgarnian ale(m) is a player-made ale. When drunk, this beer temporarily enhances a player's Strength level by 3, at the cost of 6 levels in Attack. It is the stronger, or "mature" version of the standard Asgarnian ale, which enhances Strength by 2 levels at the cost of 4 levels in Attack, which is nearly identical to the effects of regular beer. Interestingly, it has the exact same effects as Dragon bitter (m). As it is player-made, and the actual production of this item is slow and complicated, it tends to be an uncommon item.
- Increases Strength level by 3
- Heals 2 hitpoints
- Lowers Attack level by 6
The full recipe for standard Asgarnian ale is as follows (in the order given):
- 2 Buckets of water
- 2 Barley malt
- (optional) 1 "The stuff," to increase chance of maturity
- 4 Asgarnian hops
- 1 Ale yeast
- Wait 1-2 days
- Collect the completed ale using 8 beer glasses or 2 calquat kegs
This ale is created through the random chance of player-made ales maturing, while brewing Asgarnian ale. Maturing occurs during the brewing process, not afterwards. Leaving normal ale in the vat once it has finished brewing will not cause it to turn mature or go bad. The chance of a batch of ale maturing can be increased 50% by adding some of "the stuff" to the vat.
As this ale is player-made, it can be collected into a calquat keg. Doing so allows the player to hold 4 doses of this beer in one inventory slot, increasing the value and usefulness of this brew several times over.
