Wasatch Brewery Evolution Amber Ale

What the brewers say

“The fossil record proves one thing—that beer alone is responsible for the evolutionary leap from ape to man. This malty amber is our tribute to Charles Darwin, evolution, and perfection.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Biscuity malt, medium citrusy and wildflower hops, caramel, and light berry or stone-fruit esters. Bready with some biscuit or graham cracker notes, slight toast. Hints of dark fruit and some earthiness.”

Flavor: “The good news—this is a light, flavorful, balanced beer with notes of toasted bread and earthy hops, lively carbonation, and a nice lingering biscuit malt flavor. It’s heavier on the malt side, but the dry finish ensures that it’s not too sweet or heavy. The bad news is that it is somewhat grainy. The astingency is mild, but despite looking crystal clear (pun intended), my mouth feels like I should pick out some husk.”

Overall: “A well-balanced amber ale, perfect for summer days and work lunches. It’s dry and light but still has some nice malt complexity with just a hint of hoppiness. Good session beer with enough flavor to satisfy.”
