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

On tap at Christian Firtal. Dark golden with a lasting white head. The aroma is yeasty, with spicy and fruity notes and also some homebrew-like baking yeast. Sweet malty and fruity flavour with lots of baking yeast and phenols.

brontebeach (153) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
On tap in brew dog Glasgow. Hits the spot. The Belgian yeast taste is there but on a carrier of brew dog pale ale. A thirst quenching Belgian style. Well worth it. Never tried from the bottle but the tap is great.

hirigalzkar (2242) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle. Buttery, quite hoppy, crisp. Obviously a novelty... but still: whats the point when the yeast dosent nearly fit with the hop-profile.

mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap at Brewdog Birmingham, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, dry hops, and crackery malt. Flavour is very dry and yeasty, with lots of Belgian yeast and dry crackery powdery malt. Full-bodied and dry. Decent stuff.

mR_fr0g (2487) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Leg at Brewdog Aberdeen. Bright golden orange coloured pour with a fleeting white head. Aroma is Belgian phenols, orange peel, wet sock, light clove. Flavour is composed of light caramel malt, some biscuit, orange rind and some dried fruits. Some pithy orange peel lingers in the finish and moderate bitterness. Palate is medium body light sweetness on the tongue. And carbonation massages the tongue.
