COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewer Eric Harper has gone old school for Summit Unchained #11. As in, Old 152. Inspired by the Kentucky Common beer style that was popular before Prohibition, it actually uses a sour mash of maize and rye in addition to traditional malts and Cluster hops (just about the only hop available in the U.S. back then).
The results are anything but sour, yielding a chestnut-colored brew with a slightly spicy floral aroma, biscuit, caramel notes and crisp, clean bitterness.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a bright medium amber with hints of garnet. Pretty decent off white head up front that diminishes but continues to coat the surface and ring the glass. Aroma is spicy hoppiness. Taste is characteristic grapefruit and pine along with sweet caramel maltiness. This is very good, and they can call it what they want, but this is an IPA.

December 8, 2012 bottle at haskell’s tasting. Orangish brown pour with nice amount of head. Malty and caramel with a little bit of spice in aroma and taste. Solid brew that I would drink again.

Medium brown with small white head. Medium malty beer with a bit of rye or.some.other strong grain character. Decent beer.

Really cool offering from Summit. 12oz bottle. Copper-ruby orange with a big frothy head. Sort of like a really dry, hoppy version of Anchor Steam. Quite excellent, fresh, vibrant fruity esters, but all well balanced and restrained too. The hops are one dimensional, but very present and fascinating from a historical perspective. Somewhere between medium and full bodied, with a birchy, woody faintness. I sort of love this beer for what is and represents...but it is a solid beer all around.

Bottle. I’m really a fan of the Summit Unchained series each year. This is a new style that feels very retro and nostalgic to me. Overall a recommend. $9.49/ 6 pack.

Finhead (1151) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2012
A clear, deep amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel and bread, along with some lighter hop spice. It has a medium body with slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is bitter and extremely dry from start to finish.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Copper color with a large head. Aroma of grain, rye and dank hops. Corn, rye and grain-laden flavor. A bit smokiness that’s more of an abundance of earthy vegetal flavor than bonfire smoke. Light spice. Moderate bitterness.

Squat bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy ruby/coppery colored with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, heavy resiny hops, fruit. Tastes of caramel malt, somewhat dry, with resiny hops, some fruit, and an earthy mild nutty finish.

Pour is a murky brown with a large white head. Aroma is earthy and peat malt with a decent floral hop. Flavor is about the same but the hops are even more pronounced. It has a very heavy mouthfeel with maybe some spicy rye malts appearing after the swallow. Deffinatly something different.
