Wasatch Lime Kellerbier: Pours a light yellow, a bit cloudy, with a one finger, quickly dissipating head and some loose lacing. Smell is lime, citrus hops- orange, lemon, yeast, light malt, some dank hops as it warms. The taste also leads with lime, some citrus hops, lemon, a little yeast, it's tart when its more warmed. Decent bitterness throughout, some dank hops on the finish. Smooth, light bodied, dry, fairly refreshing. 4.0% - Available at Wasatch Park City and the UBC Tavern.
Desert Edge New England Pale Ale: Lots of citrus in the nose with some floral notes. I'm blown away by the amount of citrus happening here. The flavor is incredibly well-balanced. I get lots of citrus notes up front; orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. Then come the grassy notes to add some bitterness. The taste ends with more citrus and just the slightest hint of malt. Another wonderful pale ale from Desert Edge. 4.0% - Available at Desert Edge
Shades of Pale Cerberus: Aromas of dark fruit (Plums, figs and raisins), some Belgian yeast, and candied sugar. Taste is more of the same, sweet malt, candy sugar, dark fruit and yeast. Mouthfeel is rich and strong. The alcohol provides a warming effect and the rich sweet malt helps this go down real easy. There are better, more complex Quads out there, but this one touches all the bases and is quite solid. 13.0% - Available at Shades of Pale starting at 11:30am today.
