22oz bomber from 15 beers for 15 years series - #5

Pours golden, excellent clarity, foamy white head holds good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aromas are biscuity grain, grassy, lager yeast, slightly fruity - apple or grape juice perhaps. Flavors are mild, with notes of toasted grain, yeast, grassy, faint apple, dry grape juice. Body is medium, while being smooth, and crisp. Overall, it is what it is. Not much to compare it to that I can think of as far as the style goes (ale/lager hybrid), but it's very well executed.

Pours a very pale orange. Very clear. The head is a fairly bright white, a finger thick at best, but lacks significant retention. Decent lacing as the head falls and the beer warms.

Pilsner malts are mostly what I pick up. There's a slight floral scent, but it's mostly the pils malt and some lager yeast.

You can almost taste the different yeasts fighting each other. The boring lager yeast and pilsner malts give you that ho hum taste, but then the ale yeast gives sharper edges and some actual flavor that make the lager worth drinking. Very peppery, with a caramel malt finish.

It's got some sharp spicy notes from beginning to end. Faint floral, earthy feel. Crisp with slight sweetness. Some carbonation in the end, mild bitterness.

It's a much better beer than I expected, but very strange. Easy to drink, very easy actually. More or less a session beer with crisp flavors.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Deep golden yellow color, clear body. No lacing and minimal head retention.

Grainy and grassy smell, not much else.

Grassy taste with a slight buttery tone. Slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side and a little under carbonated.

It's a safe but completely unexciting beer.

Interesting premise for a beer. 1 lager yeast and 1 ale yeast. Lets so how this goes.

A- Light like a pale ale with a small white head that dissipates quickly.

S- Not getting a lot here. Some pale malts I guess but mostly bland

T- More of the same. Takes the average qualities of both ales and lagers and combines them into 1 beer. Pale malts and the tiniest bit of hops come through with some lager yeast on the end.

M- Decent mouthfeel. Nice and light which goes well with the hot weather

O- Very average beer. Probably won't seek out again but wouldn't turn 1 down and it might be worth looking into

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured a bright golden with lots of carbonation running through it. Has a big pillowy white head, good retention and nice lacing.

The smell is light and grainy with a touch of grassy hops.

The flavor is very pedestrian light bit of sweet grain with a touch of grassy hops. Not much else.

The mouth feel is light with good carbonation.

Pretty boring special release. The only thing that would be at all slightly different in this so called hybrid beer would be the two yeasts of which I don't taste either.

Shared with a testing group, this beer was poured into a sampler goblet. Showing a golden yellow color, the beer had a bright white head. I was not sure what to make of this one since it is a hybird of styles. There was not much of an aroma present. With scent playing such a role in the experience, this was a bad sign. The initial taste was a smooth carmely note. It was not particularly sweet, so it was far from overwhelming. A malty backbone blended into the carmel notes, but demonstrated little contrast. In this sense, the beer was one-dimensional. The malt faded before disappearing quickly amid the carbonation in the aftertaste. I expect a little more bang for a special release beer. There really is nothing special about this one.
