Hops and malt aromas are enhanced and will tend toward earthy, nutty, orange peel, and
mild spice. Esters will be nearly absent in normal strength beers fermented cool; below
Beers fermented with this strain will finish dry, and very light beers will not be thin or
watery. The acidity will be low, and mouthfeel will be light and soft on the palate with a
smooth nonastringent texture. As this strain is highly flocculent and resilient and not
prone to autolysis, it is excellent for cask or bottle conditioning.
HIGHER ALCOHOL BEERS:
Ester formation will be slightly elevated in higher alcohol beers. The character of the
esters will be pleasant with ripe apple and pear dominating, along with faint banana.
Beer will be dry, but a perception of malt sweetness will survive in the aftertaste along
with malt character and complexity. Alcohol should be warming, not hot.
