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

Rob_D_UK (1159) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Poured this from the bottle into a glass in Brewdog Newcastle. Pours a golden amber colour. Aroma is a yeasty bread. Taste is sweet with some bitterness.

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne; batch 226, bb 26-09-14
Bright amber color, hazy, with medium sized compact head. Some aroma of malt and wet cereals. Dry mouthfeel, smooth; it has a moderate but pleasant spicy yeast character, that doesn’t blend very well with the biscuity cereal; quite strong bitterness, with a final that has mild hop resins and spices.
Good but not exciting.

ferencmato (47) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is bread, honey, toffee. Taste is sweet and bitter, quite nice balance, but that’s it...nothing else to put finger on (for me at least). In my opinion, this one is the most indifferent and forgetable of the "unleash" 4-pack.

TheCametron (1951) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 14, 2013
.Bottle. Tasted alongside the other 3. Pours deep gold and clear with an initially large White head that quickly subsides.Light banana/clove Belgian aroma. The body is more lagery. It’s probably the yeast least suited to the malt profile. The concept of the ’unleash’ series is far more interesting than this the sum of its parts. I’m glad I had them all at the same time

spacecube (1171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
330 ml bottle, pours golden brown, white head. Aroma herby and banana, citrus hop there in the background. Was hoping this would be like one of those great Belgian style IPAs, perhaps needs more in the dry hop

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Glasgow. Quite nice, also had it in the hopinator with mosaic hops, honeycomb, & danes; miles better!

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber liquid with solid white head. Aroma is really yeasty, with a hint of spices and malts. Taste is honey sweet with some bitterness. Light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, Short bready finish. If you wanna belgian ale, this may not be the one. Still interesting for comparision with the rest of the series.
