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

omhper (19974) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2014
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Almost clear deep golden, pale amber, mid sized head. Floral orangy hops up front. Mid aweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Citrus, bread and peppermint. Resinous bitter finish. A completely different beer than the Trappist. Had I not tried them side by side and knew what they were I could not have believed how much they have in common.

Light haze on this amber beer, tidy white head. Palate starts smooth but has a minerally crisp trailing edge. Smooth malt, semi sweet and semi dry. I know this is a yeast showcase but there is a little too much of it in the mid. Decent orange hops with a nice tangerine bite bring things around. Semi dry finish.

Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne; batch 240, bb 10-10-14
Hazy bright amber color with small compact head. Nice aroma, hoppy, delicate resins and fruits, with a pleasant earthy and sweaty side. The mouthfeel is dry; some malt and toffee flavor, but also somehow metallic; strong bitterness, with some hop resins, otherwise not much hop quality.
Average.
