COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottled, series
The unsung heroes, the foot soldiers of the revolution. We owe a huge debt to the billions of tiny yeast cells that work tirelessly to ferment sugars into alcohol and CO2. But yeast isn’t just here for the grunt work. Yeast has the power to change the flavour, aroma and complexion of your beer in an instant. This series is designed to showcase the impact different yeasts have on the same base beer.
This series of 4 beers gives the limelight to four totally different yeast strains: Belgian Trappist, Pilsen Lager, American Ale and Bavarian Weizen. All 4 beers have been brewed to the same ABV using a blend of Centennial and Amarillo hops and a backbone of Pale Ale, Munich and Cara Malts. Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal Malt, Caramalt
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo
Twist: Each beer is identical except for the different yeast used to ferment the beers creating 4 radically different beers from the same starting point

jjsint (762) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
On tap @ BrewDog Shepherds Bush. Hazy golden brown. A thin cream-coloured skin of head hides and mega-lacing. Aroma has the farmyard earthiness of a sour, the spiciness of a wheat beer and the fruitiness of an amber session ale. What am I about to drink? says I. Taste is fruity sweet, with a hint of sour bitter at the end. A bit of a musty aftertaste. Odd and not an APA by normal definition, but you have to take these beers as you find them.

Niall73 (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Tap at brewdog shepherds bush. Pours a fairly murky amber/brown with a slightly off white head. Sweet aroma with toffee, grass, light toast. Medium body, medium carbonation. There's a treacly, pecan pie taste with lemon, orange. It's sweet but not cloying. Nice., ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TommyFi (101) - ITALY - JUL 10, 2014
Color ramato, non troppo limpida, con un buon cappello di schiuma. Profumi da APA che non aggrediscono il naso, ma che in bocca sono persistenti. Al palato è abbastanza dolce, mielata, forse anche troppo.
