I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, making it $1.67 for a single 12oz brown boittle. It has a bottled on date of 1/26/12 on it, so this bottle is about 10 months old now.

The beer poured a slightly hazed pale gold color with a half finger of white head on top that dissipated in less than 30 seconds and left only a few small spots of lace. Not that attractive to look at.

Pine, citrus, and tropical fruit smell with subtle bready malt underneath.

This mostly has a citrusy hop flavor with a bit of pine hop bitterness. giving it a 29 IBU rating. What malt there is is on the dry crackery side rather than sweet.

Light body with higher than average carbonation.

It has decent flavor, and with the low 4.0% abv you can have a few of these without feeling much, but they are not anyhing that I would describe as WYLD or exceptional.

The beer pours a hazy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a simple pale and biscuit malt scent along with a mild hop nose. It's light with a touch of bready character. The taste is decent. It has a smooth pale and biscuit malt character. It's light and refreshing, yet full flavored and highly drinkable. It goes down easy with a touch of hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a no frills pale ale that's certified organic and quite delicious.

I enjoyed this beer, just enough hops in a pale ale to make me happy. it came inside uinta's mix pack that someone had recomended at the store i purchased it from. this was my favorite beer from the pack and would definatley get it again. nice from hop to it that fades to a pleasent malty finish.

Beer #25 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.

Don't know why, but I've held off in trying this one numerous times. I think seeing the rating on it may have jaded me from giving it a shot earlier on.

This is actually fairly good. It is mellow, in comparison to the really out there pale ales that a lot of people are making. A heavy malt base supports a clear hop influence, but not to the tone that you come to expect for the style. I don't really hold this against the obnoxious interpretations of an apa, to be honest. I am letting this stand on its own, and I can say that it is a good pale ale. Not quite as rounded as I would like, but it works. Carbonation is a bit high and biting, but it doesn't really matter.

What a great Extra Pale Ale. I purchased this at Uptown Market in SW Portland Oregon because the 12 oz bottle was $1.35 and because it was already cold. Imagine my surprise at being refreshed by a pale ale very unlike having sex on a boat (f---ing close to water!) but instead a cocktail of subtle flavors that played on my tongue like they were elementary school kids and it was recess time.

Nice decently lasting very puffy off-white head, not quite totally clear appearance but whatever. Light but not as light colored as I was expecting (was expecting rolling rock color)
Can't tell what it smells like as I am congested.
Tastes amazing, grapefruity hops yielding to grassy hops and leaving a green and black tea-like finish which was extremely compelling. Bitterness is just right and refreshing.
Smooth and refreshingly carby when cold, as it warms it's still okay.

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.

Pours hazy orange gold color with a tremendous 2 finger cloudy/foamy white head that faded extremely slowly with canyons forming as the head went down, leaving excellent foamy lacing and rings as it went down - a fantastic looking pale ale.

Smells of cereal, sweet malt, light caramel, grains, biscuit, grass, floral hops, citrus hops, lemon zest, herbs and light fruit like apple or grape; aroma is soft and nice combo of malts and hops with nice balance.

Tastes of floral hops, citrus hops, lemon, herbs, grains, sweet malt, caramel, grains, biscuit, tea lead, very light spices like coriander and pepper; real nice pale ale flavor that leans towards an American IPA, while the nose leans towards and English ale.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a light body, very mild carbonation and a refreshing clean finish. Overall this was tasty and highly drinkable, and to me is a great session beer. Another winner from Uinta that I strongly recommend trying.

Wyld Extra Pale Ale
Uinta Brewing Company
Style: American Pale Ale (APA)
ABV: 4.00 %

LOOK: Pale orange colored brew with fine clarity. Active carbonation rising to an inch of pillowy foam. Leaves some lace down the glass.

SMELL: Aromas of orange, lemon, grass, hay and herbs are all there in full effect. Inviting aroma of pale ale goodness.

TASTE: Orange and grapefruit zest, mild tropical like note, resinous hop notes, grass, and a light caramel base. Very flavorful with loads of hop notes packed into a 4% pale ale. Impressive showing.

FEEL: Light bodied, well carbonated, even finish, clean, it is what it should be.

OVERALL: A great tasting pale ale from Uinta brewing. Their success in brewing seems to be the subtleties and solid flavor of all their beers. This is no different; a world class pale ale especially adept for sessions.
