look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Golden brown with two finger thick head. Dissipates to a nice lacing that sticks to the sides of the glass.

S - Citrus and spice from the hops, almost a small Cinnamon scent. Light caramel from the malt.

T - Citrus fallowed by a little bit of caramel. Strange aftertaste though, almost like it's trying to be bitter for the hops, but it doesn't quite get there.

M - Light body, good carbonation, goes pretty well with the flavor.

O - Pretty nice orange flavor, though they need to decide what they are trying to achieve with the hops. But hey, it's organic and not a bad beer if that's what you are looking for.

Poured out a hazy amber, and pretty lively at that. Big thick white head sticks to the glass like glue. The aroma is mild, with light bread notes and a little bit of fruity funkiness. The taste is a little too mild, with nothing really distinctive. It borders on bland. The feel of the beer is a little too close to water for me. I feel like there needed to be more malt in the malt bill or maybe brewed longer or something. It's just lacking.

UPDATE: I looked at the bottle at the best by date was November 2013. That might be why. If I can find a newer brew, I'll re-review.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Hazy gold liquid from a can, small half finger white head is full of tight bubbles. The retention of the head isn't really where it should be yet manages a study dusting of lacing on the glass.

A real pungent aroma lifting from the glass "Hop Ranch Junior" comes to mind, gnarly pine, catty herbs and onion over a yellow citrus. Really opens up as the beer warms.

Grainy and slight, a watered down cereal grains with a mild grassy and lemon zest hop profile that lacks any kick or real bitterness. Grainy finish, cracker-like and prickly.

Prickly carbonation with a sessionable body. Alcohol is a non factor and has some perceived drying despite the even bitterness.

Watered down flavor and really grainy, the hop profile is gnarly and pungent, really not my type of deal but there are many a hop head that would roll around in that aroma. Easy enough to drink and the cans are a plus, otherwise pass over this one.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a medium straw color with decent clarity. The head is a four finger white color with lowish retention for the ABV. The center of the head retains itself more thoroughly than the edges. Lots of patchy lacing, too.

S: There's the typical grapefruit aroma expected from Cascade hops, along with some lemony esters. As it sits in the glass, the crackery pilsner malt shines through slightly. Not an assertive aroma, but it's likable enough.

T: The taste is very simple, but the few dimensions it features are pulled off well. Initial lemon and grapefruit flavors, before being finished off by lightly sweet maltiness. A very good blonde ale, though hardly extreme or mindblowing.

M: It could be a little less watery in general, but this is so easy to drink. Hell, it's practically a chugger. The light body and dry finish only help the drinkability.

O: Who needs Bud Light when you have this? This isn't designed to be a Zombie Dust wannabe, it's designed to be drank by the six pack, or with a good meal. Very enjoyable as long as you don't expect explosive flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Poured a yellowish, light golden color with good carbonation leavign a nice medium white cap, some bubbles and lacing is present after aminute or two

S: Nose is lighter pine notes with citrus and tropical fruits; melons, apricots and lemon zest

T: Not exactly sure what happened between the nose and taste here but the nose leads me to believe this beer was going to pack a little more punch in the flavor department. However, this beer is not bad. It starts out with a Pale malt, light biscuit with a very light citrus and pine note, melon as well

M: This beer is 4% ABV an danyone who drinks this should first examine that this is a sessionable Pale Ale versus a West Coast hopped out Pale. The mouthfeel is plain, light with some light hop bite and sweetness. Well carbonated and lightly refreshing

O: Not a bad beer but they should consider taking the "Extra" out of the name renaming it "Session Pale Ale"

Pours a clear orange with a big, fluffy white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of bready malt, pine, floral hops, and some citrus. Pretty biscuity with a nice, almost spicy hop aroma.

Taste is bready and piney up front with a slight citrus undertone that goes into a slightly astringent middle before ending on a malty pine finish with hints of something....a bit off in the finish, not sure what it is, as it is really subtle.

Lighter body with medium carbonation work well.

I quite like this pale ale actually, really nice, dry, and piney for the abv.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Crisp and tangy ultra-light brew. Clear amber with just a shade of brownish. Fine-grained white foam is attractive and lasts well. Quite spritzy in the mouth. Aroma is pleasantly beery with a whiff of hops and roasted grain.

There is a little roast malt flavor, but overall it is sharpish and prickly. Some faint hop flavors, slightly herbal. A light bitter twang finishes things off. This has a lot of the club soda taste but it goes down nicely.

This is the classic light-weight brew that has just a quiver of flavor. Not much to say about this, but it's clean and beery. From the 12 oz can purchased at Emigration Market in Salt Lake City.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a hazy yellow color, less than a finger head, that fades fast, moderate lacing.
S - First big aroma is wheat, followed by some wild flowers and some weird spices, a little yeast, and barely any hops.
T - This tastes like a watered down mix of a saison and lager, wheat flavor, lager yeast, and some mix of faint spices and floral notes like you'd get in a saison.
M - Light, and quenching, decent balance.
O - This isnt stellar by any means, its not a good pale ale, but it is unique for what its worth, thirst quenching? sure.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy 3+" off white head which slowly falls leaving some moderate lacing. Plenty of streaming carbonation. Color is a cloudy golden-orange with some sediment in suspension.

Aroma: pungent citrus punch you in the nose along with yeasty bread dough in the background.

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat oily and sticky with a dry, slightly astringent finish.

Flavor: nice blend of citrus and earthy hops, some caramel and white bread flavors, lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

Overall: well done and one of the better beers I have had in this style.

L - clear and yellow with a thin white head.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a golden, hazy orange color with a finger of head. Patchy lacing.

S: Subtle fruity hops, citrus, and bready malt in the background.

T: Not very assertive citrus hop flavor, lemon, honey sweetness, and light cracker malt. Very straight forward.

M: Very light and drinkable with above average carbonation. Crisp on the tongue.

O: A less than exciting offering from Uinta. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
