With the weather cooling and a freshly deposited paycheck, I visited my local beer store today and picked up a wide variety of seasonal beers. I'd never seen or heard of this one, and I figured, what the hell?

Big mistake.

Appearance: This beer pours a decent orange-ish amber color. I couldn't generate much head, even with a fairly aggressive pour. What little head it did produce (about a half-finger) disappeared almost immediately.

Smell: I detect a faint pumpkin-ish aroma, and a hint of either nutmeg or cinammon. But it's too faint to pin down.

Taste: What a disappointment! Yeah, I can taste the pumpkin, but it tastes...a little bit burnt, maybe? And I mean that in a bad way; I love nice, toasty malts, but those just aren't there with this beer. The prevailing flavors are of VERY mild pumpkin, a nearly imperceptible hint of spice, and...soapy water. Not good.

Mouthfeel: VERY little carbonation, and an absurdly light body. It's almost a vaguely pumpkin-flavored tonic water, minus most of the bubbles. Except it's oddly slippery, with essentially no body or heft.

Drinkability: I wasted money on a six-pack I'd never heard of. I'm tempted not to finish the first one, and the other five will likely be foisted upon an unsuspecting acquaintance in the near future. I've had worse, but this one's not worth your time.

Joining in the pumpkin ale craze, Uinta does everything that everyone else does, however does them with impeccable balance, rich taste and a drinkable overall tone.

Hazy honey with an amber veil, the beer pours with a dense blanket of froth. Its aromas push a sweeter scent of caramel and simple syrup with a toasty grain back. With cinnamon, nutmeg and clove wafting about, and graham cracker flavors underneath- the character of pumpkin pie converge on the early palate.

But layering on the middle palate, those caramels and syrups give a praline-type of taste. Lightly buttery, crusty and spicy- its graham cracker crusted taste is even more paramount. Trailing with the allspice medley, the ale's starchy undertow is softly of gourde and squash.

Its long trail of sweetness and spice are never intent on relinquishing the palate as the ale has no real transcendence toward finish- lingering on in dessert-like finish. Warm with both spice and alcohol, neither hinder the ale's supreme drinkability.
