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.

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.

JPDIPSO (5673) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2016
Amber color with a taller beige head. Aromas of rye, raw vegetables, dark caramel, and earthy hops. Sweet rye start. Earth, light pine, spicy rye, green peppers, and dark licorice in the flavors. Lightly slick in feel, but a bit too much bite on the tongue. Interesting. 10/12

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottled. Sunset orange-red in color with a foamy, tan, frothed milk-like head. Heavy toffee aroma with a touch of smoke. Mildly sweet, mildly bitter flavor with earthy hops, bakers chocolate, rye bread. Breadiness follows through into the finish, along with some soft chocolate and malted milk ball. Mellow, malty and tasty.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy dark amber with an orange hue and a finger of off white head. Aroma of citrus and grass with a little caramel and grapefruit. Taste is light bitter. Grassy and earthy with a hint of lemon and caramel. Medium bodied with a slightly thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink it again.

12oz bottle, from MNMike, meh. I wish I could end my review there, but there just isnt anything more to write about, Cool traditional recipe but makes me glad brewing has evolved beyond this.

tmoreau (3771) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass with a hazed, brownish amber hue, abundant and persistent, moussy, light tan head foam, and lasting, curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was sweet bread, toast, caramel, and a slight hint of chocolate? Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the solid maltiness was complemented by a lingering, earthy, rind-like, slightly herbal hop bitterness. Finished with just a touch of tartness, but mainly dry and crisp, with good sessionability.
