Uinta Holiday Cutthroat - looks like good ol' Cutthroat. The noses spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg some piney hops as well. The taste starts with more spices - cinnamon and spruce tips. Clove comes in next with a bit of malt. The end is all pine bitterness. Finishes quite dry. 4.0% ABV @ Uinta now and should be popping up at grocery stores and bars with a Uinta seasonal tap

Annex Session Razz - This is the third version of Epic's successful Brainless on Raspberries Ale. The second version is Lil' Brainless Raspberries a 5.2% version - now we have the Session Razz a 4% Session Ale. Session Razz Pours a clear ruby/fuchsia color with an average pinkish cap of foam. The fruit and the yeast are the stars here. First off - you get subtle tart raspberries up front. There is some hint of thin malts as well. Spicy/estery yeast take it from there, providing a nice counter to the berries. Refreshing and satisfying for a low abv fruit beer. highly recommended. 4.0% ABV @ The Annex - Beer Bar

Squatters Hazelnut Brown - Not tried this one yet. 4.0% ABV On Cask

Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat - Pours into a hazy amber/orange color with an off white head. The nose was spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste follows the nose with heavy nutmeg and cinnamon with a fair amount of wheat and malt balance. For what it is, this is this not a bad pumpkin ale.

Returning Favorites

RedRock Secale - This barrel aged lager has a bock base with some rye malt spicing up sweetness. And if that wasn't enough, they finished it off in High West Rye whiskey barrels. This is one damn fine barrel aged bock. Don't miss out on this one. 

Deschutes Jubelale - As basic spiced holiday ales go, this beer delivers on all levels. Chicory, molasses and figs. Oh yeah!

Sierra Nevada Celebration - It's not the holidays at Utah Beer Central without this yearly favorite. Straight forward, wonderful American IPA.

Ninkasi Dawn of the Red - Get this while they're still fresh. Citrusy hops, fruity malts - delicious!

Uinta Yard Sale lager - A clean and semi-malty amber lager.

RedRock Secale - Malty and spicy with a rye whiskey backbone. Brilliant!

Prost!
