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 isnít 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

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
From the 4 pack. Gently fizzing golden amber with a generous bleached foam going the distance. Fragrant with lychee and guava hints; background biscuit and cinder toffee; stewed green tomato stem, peach, curry leaf and ground seed spice. Fine condition, low carbonation, excellent stewed Darjeeling and dunked biscuit character sprinkled with more exotic tropical hop. Grapefruit and biscuit linger with some booze. Rather decent, hop-fresh, stewed IPA- whatever the yeast.

AshtonMcCobb (2542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 26, 2013
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - oranges with a little bit of toffee. Just a touch of fresher citrus, perhaps grapefruit on the end. Taste - definitely some grapefruit this time and some more toffee and biscuits. However, thereís a soapy note that kind of spoils it. Palate - medium bodied and textured, a fairly fresh finish. Overall - good but shame about the soap, which does spoil it.

Flavours are crisp and fruity with grapefruit and pine. Herbal and grassy with peachy and tropical fruit notes. Peppery and green to finish. Nice.

330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly unclear copper orange with a small head. Aroma of biscuit, dried fruits, grapefruit and floral notes. Flavour of caramel, floral notes, grapefruit, biscuit and some pine. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel. Refreshing but could use more crispy hoppiness.

jamestulloch (1384) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius. Slightly hazy golden body with a thick off-white head. Light carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of mint, peach, tea and orange marmalade. Bitter blood orange, pine, caramel malt, stewed tea and a slight spice on the finish. Thin body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. A solid APA, thatís a bit on the thin side. Itís like a bitter version of Tempestís Marmalade On Toast.
