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.

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.

Bottle pour is a fairly dark copper, white head, decent lacing. Aroma is slightly vegetal, lots of caramel malt, somewhat smokey/peaty even. Tastes is brown sugar, toast, caramel. Fairly long hoppy aftertaste. Not bad at all, fairly enjoyable addition to the series.

Bottle. Dark bronze in color with a medium sized white head. Really interesting aroma that is reminiscent of whiskey. Nice caramel and toffee aromas but there is a strange dust component. It smells like an old house that hasn’t been cleaned in a while. Taste is bland. Slight whiskey character towards the finish. Not too impressed.

Coppery orange in color with a thick light tan head. Dark malt, hops, caramel, spices. Bitter and dry finish. Interesting and different.

I had this on tap without knowing its style. I considered it a double IPA--it has a substantial hop bouquet, softer than Cascades or other West Coast varieties but still citric, and an equally prominent malt backbone. A little bit demanding of the drinker in the finish but still well balanced. Rich palate, a bit sweet. (on tap at the Groveland Tap, St. Paul)

Dark Orange/Brown with a foamy head. Rye, Sour Mesh, Yeasts, Wood and Barley. Rye and Malt aspects of the beer are imbalanced; Combine that with a stronger carbonation and you get a stingy feel to the beer thanks to the strong rye aspect; Could’ve been Maltier instead of "Rye-ier". It’s hard to rate a beer style I’m not familiar with, however I wasn’t really blown away by this beer. If the flavor had some more balance to it, I definitely would’ve enjoyed it more.

Pleasant light aroma, Old 152 is an extremely well rounded beer. Slight citrus on the nose, copper pour with full head, caramel and hops are immediately prevalent on your first sip.

Bottle. Light orange-amber pour with a big foamy head. Good looking beer. Aroma and taste are earthy, dusty, with a bit of pine hop. Not bad.
