3.38/5  rDev -4.2%

Poured into my Duvel Tulip.

pours a hazy yellow orange with soft white 1" head that stays laced along the outside of the glass

nice tropical type fruit smell some mango with a little bit of citrus hint.

has a weird almost soapy flavor. the smell is so better than the taste. Not terrible tasting, just not terribly exciting either.

easy drinking smooth mouthfeel with nice carbonation.

overall not a great beer or one that I would probably pick up again but its not awful either.

Appearance - This is a light, clear yellowish orange in color with a quick white head.

Smell - The dry-hopping is very apparent at the nose. The hops, nice citrus with a touch of pine, are not big but very fresh and noticeable. I'm sure there's some grain in there but I just can't pick it up through the hops.

Taste - The hops surprisingly carry through to the taste, very unusual for a light dry-hopped APA. The grain makes itself known and it is not bad. It's a bit on the raw side but pleasant.

Mouthfeel - This is light-bodied with decent carbonation and a bitter finish.

Drinkability - The light body and fresh but not overpowering hops make this a very drinkable ale.

I had this on tap in Ogden last night at a local restaurant on 25th St. After I orderded it, the barmaid said she'd bring out a twenty-five cent appetizer as their license required a food purchase. Silly me! After a week on the ground, you'd have thought I'd get the hang of drinking in Utah. So a little bowl of home cut potato chips appeared and they were very, very good! The Wyld showed up in a very generous Pilsner glass (for $3.50) and looked quite fine. A big frothy head floated over the bright gold ale and an aroma of malt exuded forth. The Wyld is a tasty, well balanced brew with a decent amount of flavor and a refreshing effect. I think this is the current #2 beer on the Utah trek and I'll likely get another. A very drinkable item!

12 ounce bottle. Bottled on dating..well done

Pours hazed and dull light yellowy amber, off white head, shows moderate stayage, then leaves a decent looking fine collar, low sheeting and bits of lace.

Malty and floral nose.

Notes of caramel malts, flowery hops, with a dry finish.

Nothing special, just a decently hopped and smooth drinking pale ale. Respectable and servicable sessioner.

3.65/5  rDev +3.4%

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint. Bottled on July 29, 2011.

Appearance: Slightly hazy pale gold with thin creamy head and faint lacing.

Smell: Spicy floral aroma with some sweet citrus.

Taste: Bready and grainy malts upfront, with light notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon and herbs. Light bitterness.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, light but firm body with a dry finish. Feels like an English Bitter.

Overall: Nice, subtle cross between an APA and an English Bitter. Very mild, but balanced and refreshing.

Wyld opens to an aggressively hoppy nose that would more befit a solid IPA than an extra pale ale: dandelion stem, pine resin, and eucalyptus mix with slightly lesser notes of grapefruit rind and rosewater. The hop aromas do fade rather quickly as the bottle is left open, revealing a sweet base, with lovely apricot, orange, berry, and cherry fruit esters, touches of brown sugar, and bits of light toast, hay, and biscuit adding bready notes. As a whole, the nose is admittedly light, but very enticing, featuring an excellent selection of hop and malt aromas, the balance between bitter and sweet finely tuned, and all of it not at all matching up with what is apparently a 4% ABV beverage, which usually begets weak, watery notes. Only strength of aromas prevents this from higher scores.

On the tongue, the beer opens with a bready, grainy note, heavy on whole wheat bread, Grape Nuts cereal, toast, biscuit, and hay. Hops come next, adding small layers of pine resin, grapefruit rind, and lemon, which grow over the course of the mouthful as the sugars die off. There are a fair bit of sugars in here too, including berry, apricot, and light orange fruit esters, as well as brown sugar. The aftertaste is a combination of, mainly, hops and breads, with some sugars left over, and fades with relative quickness. Mouthfeel is medium-light, and carbonation is medium to medium-high, burning the tongue and soft palate and causing the beer to fizz up in the mouth.

Overall, this is decent beer; it’s just too bad the flavor couldn’t quite match up with the excellent aromas, since on the tongue the beer is far lighter and less sweet and hoppy than the nose hinted at. Still, for an incredibly low ABV (Wyld is only .7% ABV higher than Anchor’s Small Beer), this still manages some decent flavors, and would make for good beach fare.

A 12oz bottle with a bottled-on date of May 18th 2012. Purchased recently at the GBBF in London. The label mentions that this brew is organic.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A bright golden hue with slight haze and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a thin surface layer. Aroma of sweet, grainy malt with notes of grapefruit, citrus, mild pine and faint grassiness. A hint of caramel and subtle earthy yeast in the background.

Tastes of light caramel malt with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, citrus and pine resin, along with dry, earthy yeast and biscuity grain. Slightly sweet. A well-judged bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is dry and tingly, with a spicy quality on the tongue. Reasonable body for the style. Mildly astringent; leaves an aftertaste of aromatic hops and malt.

Nice - not quite SNPA but a very drinkable pale ale. Well balanced; the malt is light and sweet while the aromatic hops come through nicely. The bitterness is restrained but appropriate. Great for a hot day - I'd certainly have one again. Too bad Uinta brews aren't found much near me. Worth sampling if you see it.

Poured into becker pint glass; clear yellow-orange with a thin white fizzy head that sticks as a disc of foam with some small lacing. Smells of pale malt with some light crisp grassy hops, very appetizing and clean. Taste is delicious; clean bready malt with a perfect crisp slight hop finish. Tasty beer, and sessionable as hell at 4%.
