Tap @ the brewery. Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is fairly mild hoppy and malty, nothing really extraordinary. Flavour is basically the same, mild and easy going. Not much more going on here. kermis (13882) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013

Bottle from Utah Liquor Store. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Has a bit of a tea smell to it. Smooth and slightly malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. It’s a mild ale for when you have to drink a lot of beer in one sitting. notalush (5883) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2013

Hooray, we’re getting SLC-brewed versions of Epic in CO again! The Denver-brewed Epic versions (of everything, esp. this) have been clearly inferior to the Utah-brewed stuff, and I feared being so close to the new plant, I would never see the better quality stuff on shelves again. Glad to see that isn’t the case. Nice toasty-nutty malt (even a little coffee-ish) and good quaffing balance make this a pleasure to drink, if not quite all the way to exciting.
