3.7/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Brewed 6/11/2008 and Bottled 17/11/2008.

A: Pours a cloudy golden orange in color with significant amounts of visible yeast sediment near the bottom of the glass - both white and dark particle are noticed. The beer has a half finger tall creamy off-white head that reduces to a small patch of very thin film. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to significant aromas of peppery yeast and spicy hops - overall quite a spicy smell to this beer.

T: Moderate flavors of pale malts with significant (and I mean lots and lots) amounts of yeast flavors including the peppery spice notes I would expect. Lighter amounts of spicy and floral hop flavors that contribute a very light bitterness to the beer.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Very chewy.

O: Very interesting (especially with the story of how they do the brewing process using natural temperatures and gravity/pulleys) but the style really takes a back seat to the yeast in this beer - it just seems healthy with all the yeast. I guess this one could be called a "yeast bomb" but there is a good balance between the sweetness and bitterness.

A: The beer is very cloudy amber orange in color and has both white and dark yeast particles visible floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a finger high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: The smell is dominated by aromas of yeast; there are also some hints of spicy yeast.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is quite yeasty and has hints of caramel malts and a bit of malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and quite chewy (from all of the yeast) on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: It really feels like you are getting your vitamins when drinking this beer because of all of the yeast. This is an interesting pale ale if you can handle all of the yeast particles—it’s a beer for yeastheads (if there is such a thing).

Note: 2008 vintage
