Wasatch Twilight Summer Seasonal

Posted in American Craft Beer, Utah Beer, Wasatch Beers by dailybeerproject on May 10, 2010

This was available on tap at a restaurant near the finish of my race Saturday afternoon. And since the other offerings on tap were beers I’d tried (Uinta Hefeweizen and Cutthroat Pale Ale), I figured I’d avoid doing what’s safe and give the Twilight a try.

Twilight is a Kolsch-style beer, which means that it’s top-fermented with an ale yeast but then cold conditioned like a lager. It’s a pale, golden color with relatively mild hoppiness. It’s one of my favorite styles, and this one did not disappoint in the least. It was smooth and refreshing with a mild, sweet flavor from the lightly roasted malt, balanced by just the right amount of hops. It’s a nearly perfect summer beer and one I expect to drink more of as the days get warmer. Absolutely awesome.
