Best before 1/7/13.
Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to an island of film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. There is a bit of sediment that sinks to the bottom of the glass after the pour. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and some fruity peach-like aromas. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice but somewhat subdued aromas and flavors.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served an amber colored brew with a one finger pure white fluffy head. The head fades fast to a thin film leaving a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is very light overall, but consists of some light bready smells as well as aromas of lighter fruits (apple, pear and orange) and citrus hop aromas of a more grapefruit and lemon variety.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and biscuit taste with an upfront showing of some citrus hop tastes of a grapefruit nature. As the flavors advance a light sweetness of brown sugar and honey comes to the tongue as well as a small amount of an orange and pear fruit taste. The brew by no means takes on a sweet taste at this point however, as some flavors of a more grassy and herbal hop as well as an intensification of the grapefruit hop come to the tongue. In the end one is left with a somewhat off slightly sweet and rather citrus bitter hopped bready taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is quite high with tons of fizzy carbonation bubbles. The feel is quite appropriate for the more session style of the brew and make it quite easy to drink.
Overall – An alright APA, although there is something a bit off at the end of the taste with the combination of the bitter grapefruit hop and light honey and brown sugar sweetness, with the two combining in a not so harmonious fashion.

Poured golden with thin white head. Not much much of an aroma on this one . The taste was a straight forward pale ale, touch of citrus, touch of hops, nothing crazy, but well balanced.
This was a very easy drinker with nice carbonation, a clean finish, and more flavor than you would think for a >5% abv beer. I suggest this with meals and would recommend it to both bmc and craft drinkers. I gave it a 3.75 overall because I was impressed with how much flavor there was for an organic brew. I could session this very easily.

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.

Wow, 4%?! I hope this is good, cuz I love me some low ABV beer!
Grain yellow with a solid soapy quilt of whites. Smells of grain and grassy hops, some hints of lemon, but generally simple and crisp. Taste is crackers with a touch of bread and crouton, a bit of bitter and grass flavored hops; taste is okay, but a little more malty than I'd expect from a "extra" pale ale.... Medium on thin bodied with moderate on hi carb with a wet finish. I'm indifferent to this, if it was canned, I'd be all over it for the golf course.

Golden yellow. Just a slight head white head.
Pine and resin in the nose.
Whoa tons of flavor here. Pear and citrus shine with plenty of pine. Bigger body than anticipate for a session ale. Still loads of hop character. The Amarillo and simcoe blend beautifully with the dry finish. Straw and biscuity notes come through in the malt character.
Really a treat and Iove that all this is packed in a 4% beer.
