The unsung heroes, the foot soldiers of the revolution. We owe a huge debt to the billions of tiny yeast cells that work tirelessly to ferment sugars into alcohol and CO2. But yeast isnt just here for the grunt work. Yeast has the power to change the flavour, aroma and complexion of your beer in an instant. This series is designed to showcase the impact different yeasts have on the same base beer.
This series of 4 beers gives the limelight to four totally different yeast strains: Belgian Trappist, Pilsen Lager, American Ale and Bavarian Weizen. All 4 beers have been brewed to the same ABV using a blend of Centennial and Amarillo hops and a backbone of Pale Ale, Munich and Cara Malts. Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal Malt, Caramalt
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo
Twist: Each beer is identical except for the different yeast used to ferment the beers creating 4 radically different beers from the same starting point

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear deep golden, rich firm head. Floral hops overshadowed by Carlsberg-y pea soup. Sweet and fruity, medium-full bodied with rounded, syrupy mouthfeel. Ripe fruit, oily caramel and sticky syrup. Resiny finish. Really disharmonic and without much redeaming features.

Leighton (20596) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle at home in London - think I got this one from an online shop. Best By 26/09/2014. So, this one is vintage. Pours clear gold with a frothy white head that settles into a filmy lace. Suggestions of oxidation in the nose, some caramel, berries, hints of cardboard, bread, grains. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with rich bready malts and caramel, some toasted grains, light bitter grain husk, hay, tangerine, orange peel. Medium bodied with average carbonation and oily texture. Sugary finish, with continuing rich and bready malts, some lightly gooey caramel, ripening berries, touches of citrus, husky grains, lightly toasted cereal. Overall, its not bad. The aging has given it a novel layer. Pretty drinkable stuff.
