12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams Boston Lager Glass.

A- Clear, light amber. Pale golden head.

S- None to speak of. Lager yeast stands out over all other ingredients.

T- VAGUELY sweet on the back of the palate. Typical light lager.

MF- Very mild carbonation bordering on flat, slightly viscous.

D- Again, nothing to write home about. Kudos to Uinta for not over-doing it on the honey, but if not for the bee on the label, you might not even know it's in there. Nothing offensive about it, but for the money, there are many better beers out there. The "organic" gimmick isn't worth much if the product doesn't stack up.

I have to be a little disappointed in this beer as Ive been very happy with nearly everything Uinta has done and I love honey. Problem was there was never any honey but for the color. The aroma was more grain and cereal malts, like a Pilsner. The taste followed suit with a dry grain and cereal malt with a bit of hops, but no honey or even sweetness. I looked to see if maybe the bottle was old but found it was actually quite fresh. This just came across as a less than noticeable Pilsner style lager.

A very enticing aroma invites you into this honig ale. Unfortunately -aside from the initial honey and malt flavors- it ends there. Hints of mint, light citrus, and obviously honey are predominant in the nose. In the palate, honey is again revisited, followed with a quick, light finish, with subtle hints of toast lingering in the after palate.

Clear orange colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells sweet and malty with a hint of flower pollen. Scent of scorched sugar and hardwood. Fairly strong honey scent.

Starts out semisweet with a burnt sugar taste. Wheat biscuit and honey malt flavor. Mild bitterness. Still reminds me of honey on a biscuit.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall an OK beer. It is inoffensive in every way and is an excellent light beer.

A: Pours a relatively clear medium to dark honey apricot in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and some copper + amber highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy light beige head that reduces to a small thick patch of moderate sized bubbles surrounded by a medium to large mottled patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit and grainy malts with moderate amounts of honey sweetness and light amounts of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of biscuit and grainy malts with very light flavors of honey which contribute a light amount of sweetness. Light to moderate flavors of earthy hops with just a hint of citrus/orange hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing but I was slightly disappointed that the honey flavors were so light when it was wonderfully present in the aroma.
