330ml bottle. Weighty in the glass. Big rocky and deep beige head and a thick orange colour with lots of sediment floating. Malt and strong spiced fruit flavour. Good depth and body. Thick in the mouth, one to sip and savour.

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 it’s a good one! 8/4/8/4/17 [4.1/5]

2010-11-29, bottle, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Muddy light amber color (ok, the bottle was shaken enough 24 hours before); beautiful head, generous and compact, with a lace. The aroma, yeasty, is nice, but less spectacular than in a clean bottle. Good malt flavor, with strong yeast presence, and a pleasant degree of fruitness. Correct bitterness. Always good.

2010-07-14, bottle; parallel tasting with the Belgian Ale Yeast version, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Hazy amber color; generous head; beautiful lace. The fruity hop aroma is prominent, soft piney resins follow, and a light creamy touch replaces the spices of the Belgian Ale version. The body seems to be a bit rounder; there is a good caramel flavor, with some sweetness; good fruity hops and ending resins; strong bitterness. The final, caramel and resiny hops, is very pleasant. This version is softer and mellower than the other, better blended, at the same time without the (interesting) edges of the spicy touch.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2010
33 cl bottle from Ølbutikken. The pour is clear kobber brown with an orange glow and a head that is off white again with a glimps of orange. Its big a foamy and it stays as it is sopposed to. The nose is floral with pine and malt - nicely fresh. The taste is quite massive an im actually thinking a little of Alpha King due to the malty profile with the fresh floral hopping. Its crispy with a warming alcohol and a sweet malt finish. Medium creamy palate. Nice beer

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 it’s certainly American feeling. A winner that snuck up on me.

jesperhammer (4228) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2010
28-MAY-2010, draft @Mikkeller. Dark, almost brown with low head. Outdoor drinking is fine, but the nose is weak and maybe due to that. Piney taste with a good portion of malt to back it up. Loooong bitter aftertaste, and better as it warms. I am looking forward to (hopefully) trying the full yeast series side by side.

Similar to Lager though less caramel and more floral, piney and citrus hops coming through
