COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dr. Zeus is brewed with a combination of English Ale yeast and bold American Zeus hops. This combination creates a unique sharp nose of spicy herbs and tart lemon. Noticeable grassy and straw hop flavors, intermixed with slight peppery notes, outweighs the grain contributions from the smaller malt bill. An intense bitterness takes over, before leading into a dry finish.

Thanks Adam. Hazy, golden orange body with a soft, white head. Grain, earthy hops, lemon. Malty and robust, given the <5% abv. Hop character is there, but not in the lead role. Biscuit, grain, earth notes with mild resinous bitterness in the back. Decent.

umich03jm (2326) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a 1 finger foamy head that fades very slowly to a film and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is herbal and floral with some citrus peel and grass. Tastes brings in some pepper and spice to mix in with the herbal and light floral hops. A touch of lemon peel and melon. Bitterness is moderate. Dry, crisp finish. Tastes like an IPL or imperial pils but this is only 4.8%.

Bottle from BlowOffTube, thanks for the opportunity! Onion and peppery nose, a hint too sweet imho, but nice easy drinking brew.

BrownALEx (300) - Portland, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Aroma: sweet, tropical friut. Appearance: cloudy, floaties, dark straw color. Taste: sweet, bitter. Almost has 9 volt battery taste to it. Strange. Palate: medium bodied. Overall: glad I tried it but not digging the English yeast. Might not get again.

mvp (168) - Harper Woods, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Yellowish with a slight orange hue and small white head. citrus aroma with a hint of apricot. A little bit better than average taste. Not something I would drink at a regular basis but worth trying.

flatmatt (1187) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with many fine particles and a white head. Aroma is citrusy grapefruit and orange. Lighter hoppy citrus, spiciness, and hinting at pine and grassiness. Flavor’s pretty good, though it’s definitely on the lighter side.
