First time to Utah and Beer Advocate helped to find a micro in downtown SLC. Desert Edge has the Augustus Amber Ale on tap as a seasonal. The appearance is a nice copper/amber blear with white head that is lacing well. The scent has hop and malt, what type of hop...I'm not sure, but it is more of a spice than pine or citrus. The taste starts with good hop character then a maltiness takes over leaving the pallet decent. This is a good beer and is great for summertime fun.

Had this at the Trolley Square location. Received in a perfect pint look-alike.

4.5 A: Moderately hazed deep amber color. Two fingers of white, frothy head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing is left behind.

3.5 S: Toasty and nutty with a woody bready yeastiness. Light caramel.

3.5 T: About the same as nose. Toasty and nutty foremost, then woody, bready, and caramel.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Decently creamy. A bit warm even for cask. Smooth enough.

3.5 D: Not a bad amber and works well on cask.
