Pours a cloudy orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma is citrus fruit and light caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel, citrus hops with lot of bitterness. Nice AIPA. Not much difference between this and the Lager yeast.

Bottle. Aroma citric with lemon, lime, pineapple, some cracker, some dough. Flavor again brings a citric tang and is hop-forward with strong bitterness and and a tropical feel. As it warms a gentle bread character blends in nicely, and the dough does come forward again. Basically I said the same things twice, but the point is that the flavors are very well integrated. Not sure what to say about the yeast series aspect of things other than that itís certainly American feeling. A winner that snuck up on me.

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange brown with a thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel malt, apple skins, citrus hops. Flavor of apple skins, caramel malt, light fruits, bitter hops, hop oils, tea-like notes, earthy hops, lemon. Rich and malty, but still plenty of hop flavors. On the hoppy, IPA-side of ASA. My first of the Yeast Series, and itís a good one! 8/4/8/4/17 [4.1/5]

beernbourbon (1314) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Enjoyed along side the Brett. Pour is deep cloudy copper with a large tan head. A little darker and cloudier than the Brett. Aroma is resinous hops, light laundry detergent, light maltiness, and light caramel. Pretty big beer to display yeast. Flavor is also loaded with resinous hops and caramel malt. Not a bad beer, just seems more like a display of hops. Maybe the plan was to put each yeast in its most optimal style.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and pine lingers with light caramel.

Frank (2930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2010
I am not sure why Mikkeller chose such a hoppy beer to display the characteristics of a yeast but I wonít hold it against it and judge each beer on itís on merits. This is a slightly hazed orange w/ a huge and somewhat obnoxious and uncontrolled head of large, soapy bubbles. The nose is pine hops and a bit of earth and some juicy citrus around the edges. Strong earthy pine bitterness and a talcum-like mineral character dominate the flavor. Medium bodied and slightly sticky, this needs its aggressive bitterness to keep in drinkable. I am hoping as I delve deeper into this yeast series, it reveals something to me that Iím not expected. The first round is a just mediocre IIPA and Iím just not into it.

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2010
The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is citrus hops with some caramel malt and yeast notes. The flavor is caramel malt with some fruit, which I canít identify. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but not as good as the lager or brett beer from this series.
