Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Cloudy orange, thin ring of foam. Nice clean aroma, with some hoppy citrus notes, some, I dunno, rose hips, maybe? Very clean crisp palate. Some light sweetness, some woody notes, and a little bit of citrus. Now I definitely want to try more of this series...

marcus (9138) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours copper with a thick beige head and a toffee aroma. I got tired of waiting and had to drink through the head. There is a nice caramel malt flavor with a bitter carbonated hoppy finish. It’s like a very yeasty IPA.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle, labeled as American Style. Like the others in the series, the pour yields a cloudy, dusky, reddish to burnt orange body with a thick, slowly receding head of smooth beige foam. Dense, solid swaths of lacing coat the glass nearly entirely, clinging hard and never letting go. The aroma is based in biscuit and toasty toffee malt, showing alot of baked bread and some healthy, green hop elements. Dried grass and pine join pithy citrus notes, as the yeast contingent stays dry and crackery. Flavors are nicely balanced, if not a little on the hoppy side for this Yeast Series. Toasted biscuit and bread again rule the malt base, as earthy, peppery, grassy hops provide ample bitterness. There’s a bit of brettiess or some other sort of Belgian feel to this as well. Medium-plus in stature, the body is lively carbonated, but not overly so. It’s a bit scratchy on the roof of the mouth, and subject to drying residual sugars on the finish. Overall, it’s a solid ale, but this, like the others in this educational lineup, has been underwhelming.

Draft @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Pours a slighlty hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma with sitrus hoppy hints. Sweetish malty hoppy citrus flavor with hints of caramel. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter citrus finish with hints of caramel in the aftertaste.

theisti (3882) - Kansas, USA - SEP 18, 2010
11.2 fl oz bottle purchased at Gomers in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Pour is hazed orange golden with a thick three inch light tan head. Head eventually falls with nice lacing. Aroma is fresh orange citrus hops, along with a nicely defined nutty caramel malt. Taste is the citrus hops - though more grapefruit than orange, in balance with the bready sweet malt. The finish is mineral dry, with a touch of earthiness along with residual bitterness. Palate is medium bodied, right amount of carbonation and the dry flinty finish. Really no indication of the 8%. This was nice.

Botttle as American-Style from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours hazy copper with a foamy off-white head. Nice aroma - I call citrus hop. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor - I call resin hop - with some grapefruit rind. Finishes with a nice bitter burn. Good beer.
