Fisher Mosaic Kölsch: Tropical and citrus aroma. The taste follows with bright fruity hops that range from grapefruit to pineapple. Malts a lightly sweet and toasty. Nice hoppy Kölsch. 4.0%. Available at Fisher.
Fisher Black Kölsch: If you like your Kölsch to look and taste like a porter this is the beer for you! Nothing about this beer screams Kölsch. However it is a very nice roasted porter; full of chocolate and coffee notes. Very tasty. 4.0%. Available at Fisher.
Epic Brut IPA: Big fruity tropical hops in the nose. Not as dry as some Brut IPAs that I’ve had, but it does have a low amount of malt sweetness. The citrus and pine and mango qualities of the hops really shine from the Mosaic-like hops. 4.7%. This beer is only available in Epic’s high point growlers
Gordon Biersch Full Pressure Pils: The malts are sweet and toasty which give it a nice authentic taste. The hops are assertive without being overly bitter. They provide just enough balance to bring it all together. Worth trying. 5.0%. Spotted at Gordon Biersch’s pub at Salt Lake International.
Budweiser Copper Lager: I haven’t tried this, but I am curious. Anyone tried this? Please share. 6.2%. Available at DABC.
