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

radzik5555 (246) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 18, 2014
Butelka 0.3L. Złote klarowne, przygaszone. Drobna, biała piana, trwała i lekko znaczy szkło. Aromat: goździki, morele, przyprawy - pieprzowe, palona guma. Smak: trochę pokrywa się z aromatem ale do tego dochodzi sporo smaków od chmielu - owocowych i goryczkowych. Na finiszu średnia+ goryczka z posmakiem palonej gumy. Wysycenie średnie, ciało średnie, odczucie w ustach metaliczne. Faktycznie wyraźny charakter belgijskich drożdży wyczuwalny, mocno fenowolowe, trochę estrowe. Do ego sporo chmielu w porównaniu z typowymi belgami.

mike_77 (2975) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
Orangey colour with thin, quick receding head. Sweet aroma with a touch of banana and bread dough. Yeasty, spicy, peppery flavour but quite a thin, light watery taste overall.

Smalle (87) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2014
Aroma: no hops at first, some grains, grassy, yeasty. Not bad. The taste really doesn’t work for me: unbalanced combination of all kinds of tastes. Some hops and bitterness in the finish. Not very good.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear dark golden with a 1 inch creamy off-white head. Weak aroma, sugar and herbal hops. Taste is on the sweet side, moderate sweet malts, spiced caramel, harsh almondy bitter at finish.

KyotoLefty (6172) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Faint nose, citrus and hay, some funk, caramel. Spicy yeast flavor, citrus and hay, esters, oranges. Very bitter and lightly funky. Interesting but not enjoyable.

ramboraffe (315) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2014
4-pack of the yeast series. The four beers (american ale, bavarian weizen, belgian trappist and pilsen lager) are all ok but more of an interestibg experiment than great beers.
